Off Lease Only has some amazing news! For the second month in a row, Off Lease Only has claimed nearly 50 percent of Palm Beach County’s independent used car sales, according to a survey by Modern Technologies Corporation (MTC). MTC’s survey is based on statistics from the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles data base.

The December MTC survey shows that Off Lease Only captured 45.82 and 3.81 percent respectively of the Palm Beach market at its Lake Worth and Value Lot locations. To put this in perspective, Off Lease Only’s Palm Beach County market share is more than 26 times higher than the closest independent competitor, which holds just 1.88 percent of the market share, the MTC report states.

“This is a trend that will continue. It’s organic growth with all these customers saving $6,000 to $10,000 under what a traditional dealer would charge,” Off Lease Only general manager John Giasullo said. “It almost seems too good to be true. Then customers come in, see there is no dealer fee, a big selection of beautiful cars and no commissioned salespeople.”

MTC statistics show that Off Lease Only sold 26 percent of all used dealer-initiated cars sales in Palm Beach County: Franchised dealers sold 3,005 cars and independent dealers sold a total of 3,359 used cars for a total of 6,364 used cars. Of those, Off Lease Only sold 1.667, said Ray Durelli, customer service support for Florida for MTC.

“That’s phenominal. No one is even close,” Durelli said.

But Off Lease Only’s December successes don’t end there.

Less than two months after Off Lease Only Orlando opened, the gigantic no-frills used car dealership has already claimed the lion’s share of Orange County’s used car market, earning 11.72 percent of Orange County’s December 2014 sales.

According to MTC, the Orlando store has already captured almost as much business as Off Lease Only’s Miami store has in 2 1/2 years. Off Lease Only Miami in December claimed 12.64 percent of Miami-Dade County’s used car sales, less than one percent more than Off Lease Only Orlando garnered in Orange County.

“It’s pretty amazing,” said Off Lease Only Orlando general manager Mike Mosher of the store’s strong showing. “It means we are definitely here to stay and it means we are here for the long-run. Now we know we are going to dominate the out-of-state business and the local area business.”

Off Lease Only expanded into Central Florida in mid-November, opening a sprawling new dealership just minutes from Orlando International Airport at 7948 Narcoossee Road. Eager customers bought 45 used cars the store’s first day in business, and interest has continued to be strong.

Off Lease Only’s main car lot is at 3531 Lake Worth Road. The Value lot, at 1575 S. Military Trail, opened in June 2014 and includes an inventory composed mostly of local trade in’s and more! Off Lease Only’s out-of-state department is also located at the Value Lot. The Miami car dealership is at 5580 NW 145th Street right next to the Opa-Locka Airport.

The Palm Beach dealership opened in 2004. The Miami dealership opened in August 2012.

Off Lease Only owner Mark Fischer said the upwards-spiraling numbers show that car buyers are sick and tired of traditional dealer tactics and appreciate the transparency, no pressure and no haggling policies that are the bedrock of Off Lease Only.

“I cannot thank my loyal customers enough!” Fischer said. “They continue to spread the word to their friends, family and co-workers that Off Lease Only is the ONLY place to buy your next car. It’s truly a tremendous feeling. And at the end of the day, saving my customers thousands on their used car purchases is extremely rewarding. I love what I do even though I am glued to my computer buying cars 7 days a week. It’s all worth it because I provide my customers with a different used car buying experience. Where else can you buy a low-mileage, like-new car without high pressure tactics, dealer fees and the smoke-and-mirror tactics typically associated with car dealers? I’m proud of our entire Off Lease Only team and appreciate their hard work and dedication. That is what makes it all work.”

Fischer and his wife Eileen have predicted the Orlando store will become their company’s flagship because of its central location for out of state used car buyers and huge, 40-acre footprint. Plus, Off Lease Only already enjoyed a loyal Central Florida clientele that traveled hours to Palm Beach and Miami to take advantage of Off Lease Only’s fantastic prices and low-mileage inventory. With the drive eliminated, the Fischers believe even more Central Floridians will discover Off Lease Only and become loyal customers.

The Fischers also expect out-of-state business to skyrocket because of the proximity to Orlando International Airport and the Disney and Universal Studio attractions. Out-of-town car buyers who fly into Orlando to pick up their vehicles can easily enjoy mini-vacations.

“People are sick and tired of Orlando-area dealers – they have never been exposed to transparency and good natured car salesmen, and the reviews are relating that as well,” Mosher said. “The general tone throughout the reviews is that people are amazed we are a car dealer that doesn’t treat people like other car dealers. We are just an honest, straight-forward business looking out for the consumer.”
