Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a short list of questions frequently asked to our auto brokers by our clients. Have a question that you don’t see on this list? Please contact us and we’ll reply as soon as possible!

What is an auto broker?

Auto brokers, often referred to as car brokers or auto consultants, are professionals who specialize in helping people find the right vehicle for their needs. Unlike other auto brokers, Centennial Leasing & Sales will also provide unbiased advice regarding whether leasing or purchasing makes the most sense for your situation. We also sell both used AND new cars. That’s an industry rarity!

What’s the difference between an auto broker and a car dealer?

This is a question we get a lot! There are many differences between an auto broker and a car dealer. Essentially an auto broker will personally research options across most vehicle brands, find the vehicle that fits you best, and coordinate financing that works for you while a dealer tries to sell you whatever is on the lot. Our auto brokers provide personalized service and have your best interest in mind. Our goal is to provide “Your Best Auto Buying Experience.” and create clients for life.

Does an auto broker cost more?

Absolutely not! First class service doesn’t cost more at Centennial Leasing & Sales. Our prices typically meet or beat those of a dealer, and you can still take advantage of any manufacturer incentives. We do this through experienced negotiation and our strong buying power since we typically sell 100s of vehicles a month. Saving you time, money, and eliminating stress is all part of “Your Best Auto Buying Experience.” 

Should I lease or purchase?

Everyone’s situation is different so there isn’t one clear answer. The best way to determine if leasing or purchasing is best for you is to talk with an auto broker. However, if you’d like to learn more about leasing vs. purchasing, head on over to this page.

Can auto brokers get new cars?

Yes, we can! We primarily help clients lease or purchase new vehicles. Many of our clients have been working with us for decades. If you are interested in leasing or purchasing a new vehicle, submit a new vehicle request.

What if I know what vehicle I want? Can you find it for me?

Yes! Our auto brokers are resourceful and have access to a large network of dealers, auctions, and other sources to find you almost any make and model of new or used vehicles. Let us know what you’re interested in and we’ll get to work finding it! Fill out our Vehicle Request Form.

What if I don’t know what I want?

No problem! Our auto brokers are experts at pairing our clients with cars, trucks, and SUVs that meet their goals and specifications. We’ll help you narrow down your options, arrange test drives, and coordinate the lease or purchase. Fill out our Vehicle Request Form.

Can I get the same manufacturers’ incentives and rebates that I saw on TV?

Yes! As long as you qualify for them, we can use and apply all the manufacturer rebates and special programs.

If I have less than perfect credit, can I work with Centennial Leasing & Sales?

Yes! We are the car-buying experts and will use all of our resources and financing options to help you buy or lease the car you want. Just like we do with all of our clients.

Do you take trades?

Yes! When you trade in a car at Centennial, your auto broker will get offers for your trade from multiple buyers to help you get the most money for it. This is different from most dealers who have a single person valuing trades.

Where do you provide your services?

What makes Centennial Leasing & Sales different from other auto brokers in Colorado?

Since 1984, CLS has expanded to Northern Colorado and Arizona to provide the same service to those areas and around the country. Our expert auto brokers have more tools and resources than most auto brokers in order to provide “Your Best Auto Buying Experience.”
