How do leasing companies work?
Leasing companies work with a group of dealers and pre-negotiate the lowest possible pricing. In many cases we negotiate, prices lower than the dealer pays for the car and this savings is passed onto you.
How long have leasing companies been around?
Leasing companies have been around since the early 1900’s; this has been credited to Zollie Frank who is credited with leasing cars as far back as 1914.
