Ex-lease car remarketing made easy

At the end of a contract, it’s usually time for a lease car to leave the lot permanently. But selling ex-lease cars isn’t always easy. How do you maximise residual values? And how can you reach markets beyond where you’re already operating? It helps to have a reliable partner by your side. One you trust to find you fair prices all year round. And one that doesn’t cost a fortune. Lucky for you, you’ve found OPENLANE. Helping sellers get the deals they’re hoping for is our speciality.

How does our automotive remarketing service work?

We believe in the power of simplicity. That’s why we follow the same step-by-step process for every sale. Every step has been carefully crafted to ensure you end up with the best possible outcome.

Your first contact with us is your opportunity to outline exactly how you’d like us to help. You’re partnered with your own dedicated sales executive, and together with them, you define your preferences for the next steps.


We arrange to have your vehicle inspected by one of our qualified (external) experts*. They’ll take pictures, make notes, and if you want them to, they’ll compile detailed vehicle descriptions and damage reports. If you’d rather supply these yourself, that’s fine too.

*This service is only available in certain countries.


Your vehicle is listed on its very own page at adesa.eu, complete with a detailed description, pictures and a damage report. All of the communication with buyers is handled by us. Once we have secured your bids, we bring the offers to you.


Sale & Payment
You have a whole day to decide if you are happy to accept an offer from one of your bidders. When you say yes, the sale is official, and we send through your payment.


We pick up the car and transport it to the buyer. You cross selling that ex-lease car off your list and get on with the other things you need to do.
