FAQS

01 How is  Auto Lease Direct different from a dealership?

We are a FULL Service Automotive Broker with access to All Makes and Models.  We shop the entire tri-state area to get you the best deals. NO HAGGLING BACK AND FORTH, NO DEALERSHIP HASSLES AND NO WASTED TIME! There is NO broker fee so the customer always WINS!

 

02 Is there a difference getting a car from Auto Lease Direct vs going to the dealer myself?

Bottom line is that we save you TIME and $$$!  WE have all the inside info on dealer incentives which is not public knowledge so we can get you better deals than you walking into the showroom. We can finalize the transaction over the phone and deliver the vehicle to your doorstep. All applicable manufacturer warranties/offfers remain.

 

03 How quickly can I get my new car?

With all things considered, you can get your new car the same day. Once a car is decided on and you are approved, the delivery process/paperwork can be completed as quickly as 10 minutes. No more spending HOURS in Dealerships!

 

04 Where can I pick up my car?

You may pick up your car at our main office:
4219 Merrick Rd
Massapequa, NY 11758

We offer delivery to your home or office, as long as it’s within a 100-mile radius of our location. You may also pick up at the dealer if you wish.

 

05 Where can I take my vehicle for service and maintenance?

You can take your vehicle to any local service center that is authorized by the vehicle’s manufacturer.

 

06 Whom do I pay every month?

You’ll make your payments to the bank that is financing your lease. Often the manufacturer itself will lease the vehicle directly. If that’s your case, make your payments to the manufacturer.

 

07 Are the advertised cars brand new cars?

Yes. Unless otherwise stated, you can assume the vehicles we are advertising are new. 

 

08 What does "loyalty" mean?

Car manufacturers want to reward customers who come back to them, so they’ll give out special incentives to those customers. If one of our advertisements indicates that a price requires “loyalty,” you must currently be a customer of that car manufacturer to qualify for that incentive and price.

 

09 What does "conquest" mean?

Car manufacturers want to attract customers who are currently driving another brand so they’ll give out special incentives to those customers. If one of our advertisements indicates that a price requires “conquest,” you must currently be a customer of any car manufacturer other than the one advertised to qualify for that incentive and price.

 

10 If there’s a problem with the car, whom do I call?

We provide cars with the standard manufacturer’s warranty. As long as your car is still covered under the warranty, contact your local authorized service center. If your vehicle is no longer under warranty, call us at (516) 442-4141, and we’ll refer you to a certified mechanic or body shop.

 

11 What does “$0 Down” mean?

“$0 Down” signifies that there is no capitalized cost reduction. You will still have to pay your 1st payment, bank fee, taxes, and DMV fees. 

 

12 What is a Sign and Drive?

A sign and drive is paying your 1st payment and DMV upfront. The bank fee and taxes will be rolled into your payment.

 

13 What is a bank fee?

The bank offering the lease will often charge a bank fee for their services. You can pay this right away or roll it into your monthly payments.

 

14 What is a disposition fee?

It is a fee the bank charges to offset the expense to sell the car at the end of the lease. The fee is always outlined on the contract and never changes.  However if you re-lease and replace your vehicle with the same bank they will waive the fee.
