Last Resort Can Be Best: Lease Trading
Plans change and circumstances are shaped by them. This applies to any situation, whether you're about to go off with the man of your dreams to the Caribbean or simply getting rid of your leased car, which you might realize soon are more like the same.
To strategize is the name of the game; that's why they came up with the word street-smart in Webster. You need that cause you sure would have to pay a hefty sum for early termination fee, if not.
So what will you resort to? It's called lease trading. What you're doing is transferring the lease to a new lessee by finding one in an actual bidding site. Caution: it may take some time but rest assured you have a legitimate buyer; more importantly, you have more time searching for a new car.
In lease trading, the new legitimate lessee will assume the responsibilities that go with car maintenance and other fees imposed on the car at lease end. The new lessee can take advantage of not paying down payment while you, well, you are free from the lease!
So how should you go about lease trading? You have to look for a professional trading site like tradecarlease.com. They can manage all lease trades there. You only have to post your car lease and personal information on the site and they will store that in their database, showing them to potential lessees. However, you need to be informed that you're on your own in the actual transaction. You would have to contact the person and manage the paperworks. So you should take time doing it.
For everything it is for, it's all for the glory of freedom from an old car!
