Sooner or later, all good things come to an end. When you’re leasing a car with the help of Leasing Direct, the clock is already ticking; the three years of leasing in New York City will be up before you know it. That can cause a bit of agita, but with foreknowledge and a bit of preparation, it doesn’t have to. Here are three key dates to prepare for the end of any auto lease.
90 Days to Lease End
As your lease draws to a close, you’ll need to figure out what comes next. Buying out your lease is always an option. You may also choose to take on another lease, or to simply buy another vehicle altogether. This is also when you’re likely to hear from the lessor’s financial services division.
60 Days to Lease End
Leases have fine print regarding mileage overages and excess wear and tear. This is a good time to have your vehicle inspected so there aren’t any surprises when the time comes to turn in your vehicle.
30 Days to Lease End
The last month of your lease is crunch time. Have repairs made, set a return date, and set aside the funds for any mileage or wear penalties. This is also the time you’ll want to start laying the groundwork for your next new vehicle.
