Lease Turn-In Help

Help with lease

Situation 1: Your lease is up right now

Here is what to do:

  • Get a copy of your lease contract and verify lease end date and mileage allowance
    • Check if there is a disposition fee. Some banks charge $300 - $400 when you turn in your lease to cover the expense of cleaning up and selling the car after you return it at lease end
    • This amount might be waived if you lease again from the same lender (i.e. Toyota Financial)
  • If the vehicle is in good condition, all payments have been made and mileage is at or below contracted amount…
    • Selling dealer will take your car at the time of delivery and handle the turn in process with the lender on your behalf
    • You will be required to sign a mileage affidavit verifying the miles on the vehicle are actual miles
  • If the vehicle has damage, worn tires, and/or excess miles…
    • You are responsible for costs associated with any of these issues
    • Dealer might be able to apply some or all of this cost to the new vehicle contract
    • If your new car is financed or leased, this would help spread the cost over several months instead of writing a check for the whole amount
    • All of the above will be subject to bank approval

Situation 2: You want to get out of your lease early

Things to be aware of:

When you lease a vehicle you are contractually obligated to the terms of the lease. If you are looking to return the car prior to the end of the term of your lease, there are a few things you need to know; generally if you are early into a lease, you should plan for the early turn-in to cost thousands. Towards the end of your lease, that amount becomes less. In all cases you should never owe more than the remaining payments and lease disposition fee, as well as the cost of physical damage to vehicle if any.

Our platform provides transparency into dealership inventory, pricing, and incentives from all brands by multiple dealers. Our site if full of useful tools for you to customize your vehicle and your deal entirely online, on your own time.
    How much does Deliver My Ride Cost?
    Zero. We do not charge customers to use our site to buy a car. We charge the dealer. Because we are technically selling the car, not a salesperson, the dealer pays us a small fee for a transaction.

    Who can use Deliver My Ride?
    Anyone who lives in the state of Michigan.
    Where are you located?
    Our offices are located in Pontiac, Michigan, about 30 miles outside of Detroit.
    Do you sell my data to third-parties?
    We are not a lead provider so we never sell your information, meaning you will never get calls from anyone trying to sell you a car. We simply are here to provide you with the information and direction you need during your car buying journey.
    Am I buying a car from the dealership or Deliver My Ride?
    The dealer is the official sales agent. They own the cars and they alone have the legal ability to sell you a new car based on franchise laws. All vehicles carry their manufacturer’s warranty, giving you confidence in the car you buy. Deliver My Ride facilitates the transaction by providing a convenient platform to view live inventory and pricing. We communicate with a network of dealers to acquire their inventory and pricing rules, so you can shop anonymously, not as a lead sold to multiple dealerships.
    How do you work with the dealership?
    Our dealership partners are critical to our success. We tie into their inventory system to display real-time inventory, prices, rebates and incentives. The dealer is also tied to your account for any service, maintenance, and warranty needs that you may have, though you are welcome to visit any franchised dealer for these needs as well.
