It is thought by many if not most sales staff – both salesmen and saleswomen at many new car auto dealerships that leased cars and trucks simply roll out the door and the tires onto the pavement. With straight auto sales all kinds of add-ons can be added to the total . Yet with leased vehicles no such luck or sales possibilities what so ever.
This is not and need not be the case. Consider tire – roadside assistance, dent protection and repair, interior guard in terms of insurance and protection against tears, rips , burns and other permanent staining and damage. After all leased vehicles have to be returned intact and in good shape otherwise “substantial penalties” may be assigned and given. Its not as if the lessee just hands in the keys and runs away. A full – even more detailed inspection is given to lease car and truck returns than even trade ins. After all leases at new car dealers are generally of new cars, the vehicles are not that old and are going to be turned back on the lot or sold by the auto maker in dealer auctions – many online where the vehicle will be shipped to winning dealers. You are dealing with people in the trade who are knowledgeable and expect and almost pristine like vehicle on country wide delivery.
Lastly in terms of tire and rim protection – these involve either flat tire repairs or replacement rubber if need be.
