Expensive Car Lease?

September 5, 2011

If you have a car lease you can no longer afford or you’re just looking for away to lower your car costs, think about transferring the car and the lease obligation to someone else or swapping your car and lease for someone who has a car with a lease that is not as expensive as yours.  Leasetrader is a website where you can put together one of these deals and do most of the work online.  But, note, there are costs involved so you will need to compare what you’re going to save with what it will cost you and walk away if a transfer will put you deeper in the hole.  If you are able to make a good trade, put what you saved in your  savings account on a monthly basis.  http://www.leasetrader.com.


Car Lease Comparisons – Help May Be On The Way

September 5, 2011

Leasetrader is starting a new service which will allow you to compare dealer prices, terms and conditions for car leases.  Dealers pay to be included in the database so there are only a few of them (10) right now but the number of dealers will probably increase to get access to potential customers who want to lease rather than own.  The service is FREE to car buyers so, check leasetrader.com before you head off to a dealer to discuss a car lease: http://www.leasetrader.com.  Here is an article with more information on the program:http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/08/05/leasetrader-com-hopes-to-help-drivers-find-better-leases/.
