Leasing a car in Switzerland as an expat can be a complicated process. However, paying a hefty down payment and sky-high credit rates are not your only options. We, at Autociel, ensure that you get to lease a car at a reasonable price and contract terms. Thanks to our extensive experience of working with expats, we can offer you a hassle-free car leasing service if you have a valid work permit even with just a L residency permit.
Autociel has been offering car leasing services to expatriates since 2002. Our extensive experience makes us your best choice for getting an advantageous leasing option.
We can obtain leasing approval for you in as soon as 24 hours. We ensure that all our vehicles are delivered within maximum 3 weeks of order. In case you need the vehicle sooner, simply let our consultant know and we'll try our very best to expedite the process.
The duration of your stay may not be fixed. Why should your car leasing be? All our lease contracts can be extended by 12 to 24 months and you can return the car anytime during the extended period without any penalty.
Whether you are looking at leasing a brand-new car or a used one, Autociel is there to help you based on your requirements, wishes and budget.
We offer guaranteed help for early termination. In case you need to terminate the lease early, we help you find the best solution between accepting the penalty or selling the car for you at an advantageous sales commission.
Moving to a new country is expensive. We understand that. That is why our leasing services are also available with zero down payment.
At the end of your lease duration, we -unlike some car dealers- always offer three options to our customers; you can buy the car and keep using it or sell it, you can return it to us or we can prolong the lease for you.
It is very popular in Switzerland and quite convenient for expatriates. The good points are that you don’t need to take out a big amount of money at once, you know exactly how much you spend over the leasing period, interest rate is lower than for a loan/credit (less than 5% vs 8-10%), and it gives you more flexibility at the end.
This is an important question especially for expatriates as it could have a great influence in case you need to terminate the leasing contract earlier. We can help to determine what will be the most convenient in your own situation.
No, this is generally not possible, but we always make sure to deliver cars in good condition with a clear history.
We have specific agreements with the leasing company, including the fact that people who just arrived in Switzerland can lease cars through us – and as well we do not need any down payment. You can do one, if you wish, in order to reduce your monthly payments.
In most cases, yes, thanks to our special agreements with the leasing company – that is possible.
