Our Auto Leasing Process - Dallas
To begin with, we like to keep it simple. A FairLease consultant will talk with you to learn your needs and priorities for an automobile. We’ll have that conversation over the phone, via email or at our office, whatever works for you.
As part of our consultation, we’ll work to determine whether leasing is a good idea for you and the car you’re interested in. If not, we’ll be frank about it. This is an important point. Most dealers won’t spend the time to learn this. They just want you to sign a contract for any car on their lot regardless of whether it’s in your best interest. Not at FairLease.
As we start to identify the car for you, we’ll talk about making it happen one step at a time. We’ll make certain you get our lowest, no-haggle price, we’ll work to get you the highest value for your trade-in (if you have one) and we’ll work with you to define the right term and payments. Every step is built into our process. It’s how you get the best deal.
Once you and your FairLease consultant identify the best car for you, we’ll physically locate it, right down to the cupholders, at one of our preferred new car dealerships. Then, and only then, will we run your credit, file your application and complete the transaction. And your new car? We can deliver it to your location or you can pick it up – here or at the original dealership. It’s your call.
Oh, by the way, throughout the entire process, you’ll work with just one person. No faceless “sales manager” or “finance guy” or whoever. Just your FairLease consultant who does not work on 100% commission like car salespeople do.
The dollars and cents
At FairLease, we provide financing directly with no middleman markup. That’s why our monthly payments are so low. We don’t make money on the sale price AND the financing like other dealers do. We’re happy to break even on the car and earn a living on the financing only.
Speaking of money, nobody likes people digging through their credit history. At FairLease, we don’t pull credit reports until we absolutely need to. If you give us the best estimate of your credit score, we’ll use that to provide a rough quote for your monthly payments. That way, you’ll be as informed as you can be, both about the car and about the cost – without disclosing more than you’re ready for.
