Do I have to pay a broker fee?2016-08-08T21:01:26+00:00

Why Automatique Sales & Leasing vs. other services, or using a dealer, directly?2016-12-08T23:38:27+00:00

We keep our costs low and hence, our fees lower than almost anybody in the industry. Our philosophy is to buy (or lease) a vehicle at the best possible price. The dealer’s philosophy is to sell (or lease) the vehicle to you at the highest possible profit. Unlike the impersonal on-line services, we have built our reputation on personal contact with our clients. We do not have exclusive agreements with limited dealerships as do most on-line services.

Does Automatique Sales & Leasing sell used cars or just new?2016-02-19T23:24:52+00:00

Automatique Sales & Leasing sells and leases new and used vehicles.

Leasing vs. Purchasing2016-02-19T23:25:02+00:00

We can discuss the various scenarios for your needs in terms of buying vs. leasing and new vs. used. In either case, we recommend that you consult your tax advisor.

How long does it take to locate a car?2016-02-19T23:25:15+00:00

New cars purchased from dealer inventory take from several hours up to one or two days, depending on availability of the vehicle. Factory orders for new cars take a minimum of six weeks.

Does Automatique Sales & Leasing take trade-ins?2016-02-19T23:25:24+00:00

Yes. Automatique Sales & Leasing has appraisers who will appraise the value of your trade. We quote the trade separate from the price of your new vehicle so we can give you the maximum amount for your trade and the maximum savings for your new car.

Early lease termination?2016-02-19T23:25:33+00:00

Your leased vehicle may be assumed by another individual if approved by the lending institution. There may be an assumption fee for this service. Alternatively, we may be able to find a buyer for your car prior to the end of your lease term.

What happens if I move out of state?2016-02-19T23:25:42+00:00

You should contact us at least 30 days prior to your move so we may take the necessary steps in assuring that your vehicle is registered properly. In addition, some states require additional fees and taxes to be paid when registering in the state.

What happens if my vehicle is wrecked but not declared a total loss?2016-02-19T23:25:53+00:00

You should contact your insurance company and Automatique Sales & Leasing immediately. We will guide you through the process.

What happens if the state tax rates change?2016-02-19T23:26:01+00:00

If the tax change affects your lease, you will be notified of the new rate. Your monthly payment will then be changed to reflect any increase or decrease resulting from the tax change.
