month so that they do not have to pay for it all up front

their credit card will mean that they will not be able to get the same tax benefits.

service.
Objection Handling

benefit as the contract is a fixed term.

Why Ezilease?
Every customer is different.
Different Needs…. Different Financial Situations….
Different Reasons For Purchasing….
Ezilease is not intended for every customer who walks
through the doors but not having Ezilease means that the
customers who want to use this option will purchase
elsewhere.
Our intention is to help your dealers get more business,
increase margins and actively drive return business.
