Is there a certain new Chevrolet model that you think you’d like to add to your Birmingham driveway, but you’d like to “test drive” it for a while before committing to a new leasing or financing contract? If so, a car lease takeover could be an affordable way to do so! Or, if you find yourself living in Vestavia Hills for a short period of time on a work project or for a personal life reason, a car lease takeover can provide you with an affordable, short-term set of wheels. So, can you take over a car lease? The answer is yes, but there are some factors you should consider before you do. Learn all about the lease takeover process with Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover, below! 

What Does a Car Lease Takeover Entail? 

As the name suggests, a car lease takeover is when you take over an existing lease contract from another driver who, for their own reasons, wants to end their lease early. When it comes to mileage limits and the monthly payment amount, how are these determined in a lease takeover? Take a look: 

  • Car Lease Takeover Mileage Limits: Whatever monthly mileage limit the original lessee had in their contract will become your monthly mileage limit when you take over the lease.
  • Car Lease Takeover Monthly Payment: Similarly, the monthly payment the original lessee agreed to is going to become the monthly payment amount you have to make when you take over the lease. 
  • Lease-End Process: Just like a standard car lease, when you’re leasing with a car lease takeover, you simply return the vehicle to the dealership when the lease period ends. 

Is a Car Lease Takeover Right For You? 

Before you start scouring for car lease takeover deals near Bessemer, you should weigh all the pros and cons of a lease takeover to be absolutely sure this is the right choice for you:

Lease Takeover Advantages

  • No down payment required 
  • Not responsible for new-car upfront depreciation costs 
  • Transferable warranty coverage 
  • There could be cash incentives on the table from the initial lease contract

Lease Takeover Disadvantages

  • You may incur a lease contract transfer fee 
  • There’s no room to negotiate the monthly payment amount
  • You have to inherit the mileage limit as-is
  • The original lessee may be turning over the keys with wear and tear on the vehicle

Bottom line? If you need short-term, reliable transportation to get around Hoover because you’re in the midst of a career move or you want to put a specific model to the test before investing in it brand-new, a lease takeover could be the perfect solution. If you need long-term transportation but you’re simply hoping to get an affordable vehicle, you’d probably do better to look into used vehicles for sale—we even have cars priced under $15k at Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover!
