How do Lease-Take-Overs work?

Why would I want to take over a lease?

LeaseBusters - Instructional Video

Taking over someone else's lease is a great way to lease an almost new car and get a great deal at the same time.

Remember, when you lease a new car, it's only new on the first day. Therefore if you can find a deal where someone else has paid all of the upfront fees associated with a new lease (commonly $1000-$3000) and simply take over the payments from there, that would be good deal, right? What if that person would be willing to give you 1, 2, 3 or more payments for free? Now that's a great deal. That's what we're all about.

Why would someone want to pay me to take over his or her lease?

People want to get out of their leases for a million different reasons. Getting married, getting divorced, losing a job, getting a new job, getting a company car, moving out of the country etc. The list is endless.

Until Lease Busters came along most people would be faced with huge early lease termination expenses that could easily get into the thousands of dollars. Our clients would rather give you 1, 2 or 3 payments free than have to deal with the potential of thousands of dollars in early termination expenses.

What if I find a vehicle from another province or distant city?

Leasebusters and Searail "The Careful Car Movers" have recently partnered to bring an added dimension to the Leasebusters experience and product offering. Whether you are searching for a lease-take-over or trying to get-out-of your lease, you now can expand your market search to all of canada. As an added enticement, all the manufacturer's leasing companies (GMAC, Ford Credit, Chrysler Financial, Toyota Credit, Honda Credit, etc) allow lease-transfers from one province to another.
