On our blog, we've mentioned some outrageous fees dealerships can charge customers when entering or ending a car lease. The truth is, most of the time these unnecessary fees won’t be obvious. They may even seem like a good idea after a quick glance and sly explanation from your salesperson. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a trained eye to notice these upcharges.
We’ve all been there – not sure where to start and feeling overwhelmed. (Car leasing can do that to you.)
“Buying or leasing or acquiring a car isn't difficult, but the dealerships have made it a long, drawn-out, anxious process. It doesn’t need to be that way. Consumers can educate themselves online to find exactly what they want. And once they know what they want, the actual purchase should be as easy as walking into a store and buying something right off the shelf.” – Brandon Williams, Lease End CEO
We were lucky enough to be named a finalist in the 2022 Silicon Slopes Hall of Fame & Awards Services category this year. These awards, “[l]aunched in 1999 by the then Utah Technology Council…identify and applaud the breakthrough leaders and companies who have contributed to the ongoing and growing success of Utah and Silicon Slopes.” With our roots in Idaho and Utah, we’re happy to have been recognized among some other local greats.
We really hope you’re reading this out of pure curiosity. But if What if I crash my leased car? is no longer a hypothetical question for you, hang in there – we’ve got you covered.
Whether you’ve heard it from your favorite financial advice column, the news, or that one uncle that talks about the stock market too much, you’ve probably heard that buying a car is better than leasing. You may believe it, too, and we don’t blame you. For years, buying has been labeled ‘the better option’.
Is it always, though?
Lease End was named winner of the 2022 Better Business Bureau Spark Award! This award recognizes leaders who demonstrate a high level of character, generates a culture that is authentic about its mission, and genuinely connects with their community.
We talk a lot about equity – and about how you may have some in your leased car. If you have one of these top cars, you're in luck.
If you’re currently leasing a car, you may have heard that it’s a really good time to be ending that lease. Maybe someone’s told you that it’s a good option to buy out and keep your leased car – or even sell it. We’ve talked about how to do that on our own site. But why is it a good time to do so?
Lease End made the Inc. 5000 list for 2022 – and we’re definitely happy with the results.
If you don’t know, the Inc. 5000 is a list published by Inc. magazine ranking American private companies with the fastest growth. This year’s list was organized based on percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021.
“Winning such a prestigious spot on this year’s Inc. 5000 shows that we’re first to market with a solution in the car lease space and paving the way for the financial future of vehicles with a streamlined digital process.” - CEO and co-founder Brandon Williams
We’re incredibly proud of our team, backed by some of the best leadership around, for putting in the kind of hard work that got us this ranking. Next stop? The top 100.
