Established in 1976, D&M Auto Leasing, sometimes referred to as D&M Leasing, has leased automobiles to thousands of satisfied customers. The majority of its business comes from repeat and referral customers, proving that clients like the way D&M Auto leasing manages its business. The company’s base of operations is in Grand Prairie, Texas, but customers come from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Houston, and other parts of the state to work with the company.

The auto leasing industry reached an all-time high in the first quarter of 2015. Experian Automotive reports that 31.46% of financed new vehicles were leases during the first three months of the year. Industry experts agree that the rising trend will continue, but most did not expect the rate to exceed 30% or rise as quickly as it did.

One reason leasing has become popular in recent months is that it offers a more affordable payment on vehicles with higher price tags. According to the senior vice president of TransUnion, Pete Turek, leasing will continue to grow because people can get better technology for their money by leasing.

Apart from that, vehicle prices continue to rise. The average amount financed on new vehicles increased $1,000 during the first quarter of 2015. The average monthly lease payment for the same period was $7 less than it was at the same time last year. That makes leasing a more attractive option for many people.

D&M Auto Leasing, established in 1976, is the largest consumer car leasing company in America. Based in Grand Prairie, Texas, the company offers exceptional customer service through its locations in Dallas, Houston, and other Texas cities. D&M Auto Leasing has a high satisfaction rate with customers, with 75 percent of business from repeat customers and referrals.

Those who value convenience and quality in automobiles are good candidates for leasing a vehicle. Leasing has seen a 46 percent increase over purchasing a vehicle in the last five years, with more millennials choosing to lease than ever: 29 percent of all new car purchases in this generational group were obtained by lease financing in 2015.

Benefits of leasing include access to a brand new car every few years and the ease of mind that comes from driving a vehicle that is always under warranty. Leasing may also be a good option for those on a tight budget, as payments typically cost less month-to-month than a car payment, though these rates are based on factors such as credit scores.
