OffLeaseOnly Ft. Lauderdale Dealership to Open Soon!

NORTH LAUDERDALE – OffLeaseOnly is just months away from making a huge splash in Broward County!

OffLeaseOnly owners Mark and Eileen Fischer recently closed on a 15-acre site at 827 S. State Road 7,  and work is already underway to prepare the property for inventory. The huge new used car dealership is working feverishly to get everything in place to open as quickly as possible. The site will hold 800 to 1,000 used cars for sale! Broward residents are beyond excited!

“This is the next big step for OffLeaseOnly,” said OffLeaseOnly owner Mark Fischer. “With the opening of OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale, our presence in the Tri-County area will be solidified, making it even easier for customers to find the car of their dreams by eliminating the drive.”

OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale will  also create 125 to 150 new jobs in the area, with interviews planned for some time in November. Signs announcing the site as the future home of OffLeaseOnly have been ordered and will be going up as soon as they arrive.OffLeaseOnly LOGO

The sprawling property on the west side of State Road 7 – once the home of a Pontiac dealership, has a working body shop, an automobile showroom, and another large building that was previously utilized for used car sales.

OffLeaseOnly operations manager Ryan Little said the site will be transformed quickly and the exterior painted OffLeaseOnly’s signature purple and white.

“We have already started. I spent a day out there this week getting things in line for landscaping, internet connectivity and the alarm companies,” Little said. “The opening isn’t very far away. We have a lot of stuff to pack into a very short time.”

The site is just a hop, skip and jump from Interstate 95, the Sawgrass Expressway and Florida’s Turnpike.

Future home of OffLeaseOnly Broward includes a former auto dealership showroom. The buildings on site include about 5,500 square feet of office space.

“This new dealership is finally going to give us our first footprint in Broward,” said OffLeaseOnly Chief Operating Officer John Giasullo. OffLeaseOnly already operates used car dealerships in Lake Worth, Miami and Orlando. Plans are also in the making for a Tampa dealership.

Giasullo said OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale will be competing with some of the largest franchise dealers in the country when it opens for business. He expects OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale to cause quite a stir in the local automotive market.

“Those mega dealers have thousands of customers who continue to go to their stores and pay top dollar for their certified, pre-owned cars from the manufacturers. We are going to show customers a way to save up to $10k per vehicle, and do it with no hidden fee while having an overwhelmingly positive buying experience,” Giasullo said.

The combination of non-commissioned sales personnel combined with used cars that are priced $5K to $10K lower than every other dealer is guaranteed to draw in crowds, he said.

It did when OffLeaseOnly Orlando opened for business in November 2014. Sales personnel sold 45 used cars the first day in business as hundreds of customers streamed through the car lot to check out the amazing prices and enormous inventory.

OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale heralds an era of extreme growth for OffLeaseOnly. A long-anticipated Palm Beach dealership is rising from the ground at 1200 S. Congress Avenue in Palm Springs, to ease crowding at the existing dealership at 3531 Lake Worth Road. Construction of the new Congress Avenue facility is expected to take about a year.

Little said the Fort Lauderdale property is bigger than it looks because the property is so deep. The existing office buildings face State Road 7 with the body shop facilities to the rear. The south side of the property is vacant and grassy, and will be used for used car inventory once paved. A paved lot with parking spaces is sandwiched between the office buildings and State Road 7.

“This location is in better shape than other ones that OffLeaseOnly has acquired,” Little said. “The sheer size of it makes it a different sort of challenge. The current Lake Worth showroom is 2,500 to 3,000 square feet. The sales area and finance area for OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale is over 5,500-square-feet.”

OffLeaseOnly Fort Lauderdale’s main building includes a second floor, which will be reconfigured for corporate offices, a conference room, and a learning center for training, Little said.

“It’s awesome,” Little said.

“When you look at it now versus looking at the site plan for the 1200 South Congress Avenue dealership, this is almost the same size land-wise,” Little noted.

The huge body shop located on the west side of the property will be occupied by Dent Wizard, a business which does onsite rim repair, paintless dent repair, and light body work, Little said.

“We are counting on being big!” Giasullo said.
