I love to lease. I have done it for years. With the US economy going through some rough times, I have been browsing online for yes, great deals. I can across a sports car that sells normally new for $80,000 plus and found it online for $30, 000 used. Now, as just a private car buyer or lessor, I really don’t know what is involved in bringing a car across the border so I went to my friend who works at a Canadian Car Dealership.
These guys do this every week. Yes, they buy the car for you, then ship it, then safety it, and make it drivable in Canada. Our laws are slightly different for lighting and other safety related equipment. There is prior arrangements that need to be made, documentation required, and taxes to be paid.
My advise, is to use a dealership, pick the car you want, if you have good relationships with them, or good credit, they will help you. In a week or so, you can be driving a US made vehicle on Canadian soil. Taking advantage of the American recession and the options a car lease can give you, you might get more bang for your buck with by leasing an American used car.
