Majid A. - North West England - Sept 2014
I had factory ordered an Audi S8 from my local Audi dealer but due to unforeseen circumstances at the Audi plant the delivery lead time was extended - apparently this is not uncommon. When the car was finally ready for delivery my personal circumstances had changed. I had already paid a substantial deposit and signed the agreement, therefore was unable to pull out of the deal. I needed to find someone to step in and adopt the lease in order to avoid a substantial cancelled order charge.
I offered the car to my network of contacts, but no one I knew was in the market for such a high value performance car. At this point I looked online for companies who could possibly assist me in finding someone who would be interested in taking over the lease. This is where I came across Swap-a-Lease.
I advertised my Audi S8 on their site, generating several enquiries in a matter of weeks. Some were suitable and others not but eventually I found someone acceptable to Audi finance to take on the
Swap-a-Lease were very supportive during the process although sometimes I would
have liked the communication to be a little quicker in the end they got the outcome I wanted saving me in the region of £10,000 in termination fees.
I would definitely recommend the service to anyone who is in a similar
position or stuck in a lease they don¹t need.

I had 18 months still to run on
a Mercedes C Class. Swap-a-Lease connected Precise with the Pentan
Partnership a leading firm of Architects based in Cardiff.
Joy told us. "When we were introduced to the concept of Swap-a-Lease we were very interested in the potential savings, however being naturally cautious about new ideas we proceeded carefully, in hindsight we need not have worried. Practically the process was easy to follow and with support and guidance from the Swap-a-Lease team, the deal took only a few weeks to complete."
Norman Robson-Smith Pentan Partnership Cardiff
"I can't believe that this hasn't been done before. It is a great concept and it really works! We benefited from a well-presented car, a great rental, a short lease commitment without paying a deposit. I can thoroughly recommend Swap-a-Lease it really worked for us."
With the choice of car leases growing daily Swap a Lease offers a real win-win outcome. It provides car leasing buyers, sellers and suppliers with choice, ease and value.

When a colleague told me his Mercedes was from Swap-a-Lease and he didnt have to find a deposit. I was on it like a flash. I got a great deal on a car lease with only a few months left to run. I had to pick it up from London but it was well worth the train journey. The drive back was phenomenal. I am always on the look out for a deal and Swap-a-lease will now be on the radar when I am ready for a change. I like nice cars and get bored easily so it really works for me. I think the bloke I took the lease over from was really relieved too!

I've ordered several new cars from sister company Car Partners over the years, when they helped me to dispose of several surplus car leases through Swap-a-Lease I wondered if they could also find them... the perfect Merdcedes CLK Coupe contract came along ... now I have short term BMW while I wait for the next great deal to come along ... great job lads!

My first car lease through Swap-a-Lease came to an end this month.
I had recived quotes on cars from other leasing companies but decided to take a brand new SLK 350 from Swap-a-Lease. The service although in it's infancy is a no brainer! 2 car leases so far and no problems - 10/10.

My client lost his driving licence and was faced with a bill for terminating his lease early of several hundred pounds. We advertised his Chrysler Crossfire on Swap-a-Lease and found a buyer in under 2 weeks the car is being handed over this weekend. We saved our client several hundred pounds...our client is delighted.
