Leasing Reinvented

better deals for bad credit

Our product is designed to help qualified dealerships deliver better cars (later models, lower miles) to customers with less than perfect credit, or no credit at all.

Our Company

leasing since 2010

  • Founded in 2010 by industry veteran Don Foss. The leasing product was designed with the intention of helping dealers reduce their customer retention costs. Paid-in-full leases result in customers returning to the originating dealership, resulting in a second sale/lease opportunity.

  • Brite Financial leasing products are available to dealers participating in the CARite brand, and to a limited number of qualified premium dealers.
