LeaseTrader.com is a ripoff! I went to them because I needed a car for only a few months. After paying two fees, registration and brokerage, totaling more than $300, I was allowed to contact the seller of the car I wanted. Because I didn't want to get stuck with a lemon, I took LeaseTrader up on its offer to have the car inspected -- for another $200. The car was on the other side of the country and I would have to pay their transferring fee. I wanted to make sure it was in good condition before it arrived. Shortly afterward, the seller backed out of the deal. LeaseTrader refused to give me any kind of refund. I decided to try SwapaLease instead. For just a small fee of $39.95 I had access to a much wider selection of vehicles and their owners than could be found on LeaseTrader. I found the vehicle I wanted in the same city as me. The seller agreed to get the vehicle inspected by the dealer and send me the report. It was a much better experience. I only wish I had gone to SwapaLease first. I only chose LeaseTrader first because I thought their website was more sophisticated. Don't be fooled! Use SwapaLease if you want better, friendlier service at a better price.
I first checked with the BBB
With all the companies out there Leasetrader.com was the only company that found a credit qualified buyer for my car!
Swapalease.com and LeaseTrade.com just sent me everyone with good and bad credit, wasted almost a month of my time,
so it seems Leasetrader.com is excellent if you want to get out of your car!! just a little tough if you want to get into a car.
looking through the internet is tough!!
The BBB seems to be the best way to check out a companies history!
