Uber Costs vs. Low Mileage Lease

Posted by John Sternal on April 22, 2015 at 6:24am 0 Comments

Assuming you drive just under 10,000 miles per year, does it truly make more sense to Uber everywhere compared with car leasing?



There has been some debate over this recently; Below are some cost comparison breakdowns from national car leasing marketplace, Swapalease.com, that show leasing may be better for your wallet.



This example in the link says you would pay $12,744 for Uber when needing 9,500 transportation miles per year. According to Swapalease.com, a lessee would pay the following under similar utilization circumstances:

  • Car lease monthly payments: $400 p/m ($4800 per year and this includes taxes)
  • $1,344 in calculated fuel (assuming 9500 miles per year at $3.50 per gallon and a 12 gallon car)

From Houston Business Journal

https://twitter.com/HBJMartin

A Houston-based car broker aims to disrupt an industry in need of some fine tuning.

The car-selling process today is antiquated and tends to favor the dealership more than the consumer, said Michael Dodd, CEO of Carphoria LLC. A former car salesman, Dodd developed an idea that puts the hands in the power of the consumer.

Customers plug in their make, model and vehicle identification number on Carphoria's website, go into the store and receive an offer on their car, whether it be a Rolls Royce or a clunker, Tracey Trachta, vice president of Carphoria, said.

CAR LEASE CREDIT APPROVALS SEE LOWEST NUMBERS SO FAR IN 2015

Posted by John Sternal on April 14, 2015 at 6:12am 0 Comments

Volatility Remains for Lease Applicants Due to Increased Attention on Secondary Market

 

CINCINNATI, OHIO (April 14, 2015) – Swapalease.com, the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, reports lease credit approvals for March tumbled to just 60.0% of lease transfer applicants, with the 2015 average off the average healthy pace at just 63.4%.

 

Lease credit approval volatility has been apparent over the last six months, with every other month surging above or below Swapalease’s healthy margin of 70% approvals. The company continues to attribute this volatility to continuing trends that include rising borrowing for student loans and an overall increased appetite to take over a lease.

 

“When the overall volume of applicants continues to rise, it’s not uncommon to also find an increase in credit declines in the secondary market,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com. “Much of this activity is the result of car shoppers turning to the…
