Happy Birthday Off Lease Only Orlando!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been five years since Off Lease Only opened its first store in Orlando. That original location on Narcoossee Rd. was originally airport parking, which was conveniently located near the Orlando airport and the BeeLine Expressway. The 5,000 square-foot showroom was filled to capacity on that opening day in November of 2014, as hundreds of people came to experience the Off Lease Only difference for themselves. The first car sold that day was a Hyundai Genesis, and 79 new customers were added to the Off Lease Only family by Sunday night. This was a new company record, and would set the tone for the next five years. Founder Mark Fischer said “The grand opening of Off Lease Only Orlando far exceeded everyone’s expectations. We knew Central Florida was an exciting market, but the response we got was absolutely mind blowing”

Off Lease Only is famous in South Florida for their huge selection and low prices. But we’re also famous for our transparent pricing model, which doesn’t include any hidden dealer fees or silly requirements to get the low price. All buyers have to do is pay a $299 pre-delivery fee, and a $79 tag agency fee and that’s it. There’s no hidden price increase when you go to sign the papers. Doing business this way has allowed Off Lease Only to help over 300,000 people get into a much nicer car than they might have otherwise been able to afford. Because of this, Off Lease Only is the largest independently owned used car dealer in the United States. And while many people in Central Florida had heard about the money they could save at Off Lease Only, making the drive down to our south dealerships just wasn’t feasible. The Off Lease Only Orlando showroom not only allowed these buyers to be able to save money without the long drive. It also meant that customers from Jacksonville, Tampa and even Atlanta, could come down easily and take advantage of our low transparent prices.

When Mark Fischer was looking for a suitable location, he wanted a piece of property that could house thousands of vehicles. As luck would have it, he was able to find this perfect 40 acre property with plans to expand and build a huge new showroom eventually. To give our guests a more relaxing experience, Off Lease Only embarked on a multi million-dollar construction project that included a state-of-the-art 20,000 square-foot showroom that includes over 60 computers, that allow our customers to browse our entire 5,000+ vehicle inventory. Once you’ve decided which vehicle you want to try, all you have to do is let an OLO Expert know, and they’ll have it brought around for you to test drive. Over 16,000 people bought a car at Off Lease Only Orlando in 2018, and this new facility has put us on track to do considerably more than that in 2019.

“Off Lease Only Orlando has not only helped us to grow our customer base in Florida, our central location to the airport, theme parks and beaches, allows our out-of-state customers to fly in and make a family vacation out of getting a new car”. Said Director of Marketing Monique Hausheer. “We have customers flying in from Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, even Houston Texas. They see our inventory online, and when they do the math on how much money they can save, taking the kids to Disney suddenly becomes doable”.

Off Lease Only Orlando

Since opening in 2014, Off Lease Only Orlando has helped over 70,000 people get a fantastic car for thousands of dollars less than they would have paid anywhere else. OLO is the largest volume independently owned used car dealer in Florida, and we strive to give each of our customers an incredible experience. We have some very exciting news and events planned in the very near future. So stay tuned and follow us on social media, that way you can stay in the loop. We would also like to say a very special thank you to our employees and the people of Central Florida for making all of this possible!

We love you Orlando!

**Side note, a special thanks to all of our on air personalities and media partners like Dickerman @ 101.1 WJRR, Estee @ Power 95.3, La Gitana @ Rumba 100.3 and Jack Bradshaw @ 104.1 to name just a few. When Off Lease Only was in the process of opening the Orlando dealership back in 2014, a lot of people took a chance on backing “the new guy”. If it weren’t for them, we would not have been able to get our message out there, so a big, genuine thank you!
