What is the difference between a closed-end lease and an open-end lease?
In a closed-end lease you are responsible for making a specified number of lease payments over a period of time based on a fixed end of lease value (residual value) regardless of market conditions at the time of lease termination. If there is a loss of value from depreciation, other then from excess wear and tear or mileage, it is absorbed by the leasing company. In an open-end lease, you take the risk and are responsible for any difference from the estimated residual value once the vehicle is returned and resold. Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com) only provides closed-end leases to it's customers.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of leasing?
The advantages of leasing are lower monthly payments, more vehicle for less money, little or no cash outlay, preservation of capital, less sales tax based on the monthly payment not the purchase price, and possible tax benefits. The disadvantages are no equity or ownership in the vehicle, potential expense from early termination, and the possibility of lease end charges such as excess wear and tear or mileage.
-Buy or lease - Savings account or no savings account
Buying a car with a loan is essentially like putting money into a declining-value savings account — you never get out as much as you put in. A portion of every payment you make is lost to depreciation. What you have "to show" for your investment when your loan is paid off is only the part that is left over after depreciation. A terrible investment by any measure.
Auto leasing, then, is similar to buying, but without the "savings account." You only pay for what you use. It's true that you'll own nothing at the end of a lease; you have nothing "to show" for the money you've put into it. But... what you don't own is the same part of the car — the depreciated part — that a buyer too doesn't own at the end of his loan.
With auto leasing, you at least have the option of putting your monthly payment savings into more productive investments, such as mutual funds or stocks that have the possibility of increasing in value. In fact, many experts encourage this practice as one of the benefits of leasing, though most people will typically find other uses for the money they save by auto leasing — such as paying the rent or buying groceries.

If the car that you specify is located out of town or it must be ordered and delivery time will vary. Consult a Best Buy Leasing (bestbuyleasing.com) client advisor for availability of your specific vehicle at email@example.com
Why wouldn't I choose the lease plan with the lowest monthly payment from your lease comparison?
Typically, the lease plan with the lowest monthly payment is the logical choice. However, if you plan to purchase your vehicle at lease end, a program with a lower residual value or buyout and a payment that is palatable could be the right choice for you. This might be a program that is ranked near the top of the list. A Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com) client advisor will be happy to assist you in choosing a lease plan that meets your specific needs. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-621-0646 Monday through Friday, 9AM to 5PM EST.
How does Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com) arrange for delivery of my new car?
Generally, delivery of your new car is arranged through a dealership in your area. We provide you with all the pertinent documentation prior to delivery to confirm your lease transaction and eliminate stress and surprises. If in order to fill your request we must obtain your desired vehicle from a dealer out of your area, your car may be delivered directly to your door. The cost for transportation will vary by geographic location and will be included in your lease.
What happens if I decide to terminate my lease early?
Terminating your lease before its expiration can be a costly proposition. Technically you are responsible for all remaining lease payments. In order for you to get out of your lease cleanly, you would need to find either a dealer or an individual willing to buy your vehicle for the payoff amount at your intended time of termination. In most cases, the residual value in your lease will produce a close out amount that is higher than market value and any negative equity would have to be absorbed by you. It is recommended that before you decide to enter into a vehicle lease, you make certain that you are comfortable with the lease term. You should pursue the shortest term within your budget.
What is the disposition fee and when is it collected?
Some leases contain a disposition fee charged by the financial institution to cover their cost of retrieving your vehicle at lease end. The amount, which varies by leasing institution, is fully disclosed in the lease contract. You will be billed for this charge after you turn in your vehicle.
What is considered excessive wear and tear?
Most leasing companies will allow for a few small door dings, scratches, stone chips, and interior wear that typically occurs over a three year period. However, a cracked windshield, bald tires, dents, and body damaged that is not professionally repaired will be charged back to you after you turn in your vehicle. It is recommended that you take care of such damage before turning in your vehicle. The cost of such repairs will most likely be less than what you will be charged by the leasing company.

Why don’t you charge a fee like other lease companies?
Other companies charge a fee or collect a deposit from you early in the process because their customer retention rate is low and they want to be paid whether they find you a car or not, or use your deposit for operating capital. Our experience is that when customers are treated professionally they are more likely to purchase a car from you and return to us for their next vehicle. Collecting unnecessary fees shows a lack of trust and does not build good relationships.

Is auto leasing just a trend or is it here to stay?
The average Automobile price tag or MSRP today is much higher than ever before. In 1989 any car over $12,500 was considered by the IRS to be a luxury automobile. A financed car at the selling price of $10,000 and an average interest rate of 10% , in that day and time, for a term of 48 mos. was $250 per month. With the ever growing price tag of new and pre-owned vehicles today, the average person financing a car at 7% interest can not afford to finance these high ticket items. And with inflation of the all mighty dollar surpassing the depreciation of these assets, they must and need to lease. The average price MSRP today is over $20,000++ with a 48mo term retail finance payment growing over $500 per month. It is stated throughout Industry and Economic articles, that over 50% of all cars today with a price tag of over $25,000 are leased and within the near future with the rising cost of technology to build bigger, better, faster and while trying to meet government and the economical need of motorist, the price of automobiles will soar beyond our imagination.
How many miles can I drive per year with my vehicle lease?

How is my new vehicle's factory warranty affected by Best Buy Auto Leasing (bestbuyleasing.com) involvement in the vehicle transaction?
Simply put, it's not. Since your vehicle is supplied directly by an automobile dealer, the title transfers directly from the dealership to you.
Some of Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com) competitors actually purchase the car from the dealer, and then resell the vehicle to the consumer. They do this to conceal their profit in the transaction (since the consumer never knows how much the auto broker paid the dealer). The problem with this scenario (other than the obvious lack of disclosure) is that the broker becomes the original owner of the vehicle. Depending on the vehicle manufacturer, the factory warranty may limit the coverage of subsequent owners, such as yourself. With Best Buy Auto Leasing (bestbuyleasing.com), you never run this risk.
Can I take advantage of the cash rebates and low-interest rates being offered by the manufacturers if I buy or lease my new vehicle through Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com)?
Absolutely! In fact, in addition to the "consumer" incentives, which are advertised to the public, there are often "dealer" incentives that are not advertised. As "fleet" brokers, Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com) can secure these incentives for the benefit of our clients.
Our clients receive not only the incentives they know about, but often, the incentives they don't.
Can Best Buy Auto Leasing LLC (bestbuyleasing.com) factory-order my new vehicle?
Yes. By utilizing our extensive dealer network, we can order most vehicles directly from the factory built to your exact specifications. Quite often, factory-ordering your vehicle is the least expensive method of acquisition.
