Picking up an RX 350 and Es 350 from Lexus of Watertown tomorrow. They blew away their competition with their prices. I'm leasing these vehicles. I am turning in a 2008 RX 350 and 2007 ES 350 that I had leased from Lexus of Norwood. They valued their customers so much that they quoted me higher than Watertown and then told me Watertown could never do this deal. Anyway, I just wanted to follow up on the other Watertown posts and say they are Legit.

Still unimpressed with these guys who are transporting my car from Watertown, MA to Cincinnati, OH. The car was picked up from the dealer on Friday, but apparently sat somewhere near Boston over the entire weekend. They said it's leaving Boston today (Monday) and I'll have it tomorrow. I'm skeptical to say the least. I've told them many times that I need to have the car before I go out of town.
The one thing they were quick to do however was to charge my credit card!
I didn't shop around but used the recommendation of the dealer. Other's should shop around.

Negotiated price:$42,000, which will make the following lease terms:

$555 a month with tax already
No money down just first payment, bank fee($700) and registration fee, Total at signing just over $1500.

Tbartman.. that seems to be standard practice for the shippers. Not sure if mine was the same company, but my car was picked up on Saturday, and delivered on Monday. They ship them on multi-car trucks, not individually, so they collect the deliveries for a region in one place, and then send them out together.

Did you use this same company? Did you have any problems? I hired them at the recommendation of Lexus of Watertown without doing any research, but I looked today and their BBB rating is D- and their rating on epinions.com is 1/5! Lots of haters out there. I'm praying that my car gets here and is o.k.! I'm really nervous now!

Not sure if the negotiations work the same way on leases as they do with purchases, but you might be able to do better. People are getting discounts in the range of 14-15% of MSRP for purchases, even before the current Golden Opportunity promotion. Ray Catena for me was nowhere close on price when I bought my vehicle (although later on they claimed they would've beaten the deal that I got). If you haven't completed the deal, get quotes from some out-of-town dealers, and use them as leverage.

I don't remember the name of the company that IRA used for me ( I just paid them the money and let them handle it - that way they are responsible for it) - I will look it up when I get home in the evening. I am sure that apart from the delay, the vehicle would be fine.
