Frequently Asked Questions

Your lease is unique to you, depending on the terms listed in your agreement you may have a few options. However, in most situations you will have the following options: to keep your lease (lease buyout), to return your lease (surrender the lease) or to trade-in/upgrade your lease. In some cases, you may be able to “pull-ahead” your lease or break your lease—but some penalties may apply.

If you’re unsure which route is best for you, reach out to our team—we’d be happy to discuss the best option for you.

Lease Pull-Ahead program is your golden ticket to level up your wheels without bulking up your monthly payments. Some programs will even cover a set number of your remaining payments on the current lease or toss in a cash bonus that you can apply toward a shiny new car, or SUV.

Those extra miles might turn into unexpected costs at lease-end, as per your lease agreement. Typically, the cost ranges from $0.10 to $0.25 for each kilometer you go over—this may seem small, but don’t be fooled! It can easily add up to hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars due at the end of your term.

If you’re getting close to the limit, give us a call—we might have options to help you avoid those extra fees.

Yes, transferring your lease to another individual is usually possible; however, there are some guidelines to follow. The new lessee must meet our credit approval criteria, and there may be transfer fees involved. Get in touch with us to explore this route in detail, as Manitoba provincial regulations can also come into play.

Absolutely, extending your lease is often a viable option. If you’re not ready to part ways with your vehicle or need more time to make a decision, an extension could be your best bet.

Contact us a couple of months before your lease ends, and we’ll walk you through the available extension terms and any other particulars. We aim to make the process as seamless as possible.
