lease swaps

Hey guys, i want to swap over a lease and was wondering if any of you guys had any experience with swapalease / leasetrader websites. If so what's the process like? How fast was everything?

From my understanding of the lease transfer process. The person gets a package in the mail to fill out and BMW does a credit check. After they pay the 500$ if they wish to continue the process and thats about it?

Experts chime in

You've got the process right. BMW will send them the app, they fill it out, get thier credit run, and then are approved. The whole deal can happen within a week or two.

I would argue against swapalease/leasetrader. Swapalease was expensive, and gave me almost no results. They also have terrible nagging salespeople that call constantly and try to upsell thier BS packages.

Try Craigslist first, I got 10x more hits than swapalease and ultimatley a sale.

+1. Stay away from Swapalease or keep it as a last resort. Salespeople lie and charge hidden fees later on.

They pay it after they are approved and initiate the transfer.
