When a vehicle’s lease expires, the lessee can either buy the car from the supplier or return it to the dealership. Vehicles not purchased by a driver post-lease will often become unwanted assets for a fleet or leasing company since the value will have inevitably depreciated. Companies also look for ways to sell repossessed assets and non-auto’s such as recreational vehicles, boats and campers. For this reason, fleets, finance and leasing companies will often look to sell these leased vehicles in high volumes to different companies and consumers. This process is called vehicle remarketing and today is a multimillion-dollar business within the United States.
