Pickard Lane Leasing offers used cars at a fair price
Pickard Lane Leasing Ltd. in Bolton is the place to find the right vehicle at the right price.
Serving the Bolton area and beyond, Pickard Lane Leasing Ltd, is a premier retailer of used and pre-owned vehicles, offering over 250 import and domestic cars, trucks, sport utility vehicles and commercial vehicles of all makes and models. Pickard Lane also offers the largest diesel selection truck center in the GTA.
“Our inventory is very diverse,” said Giancarlo Fortino, manager of sales and leasing at Pickard Lane Leasing. “We deal with every make and model and we sell cars from $1,000 to $40,000.”
Owners Frank and Sandra Amerato have grown the family-owned business into not only the largest Pre-Owned Vehicle Centre in Caledon, but also one of the largest wholesale operations in Ontario. Pickard Lane Leasing first opened in 1996 in a small office near Finch and Weston Road in Toronto, primarily as a wholesale operation. After outgrowing the location, they moved to Brampton and Woodbridge before settling in Bolton in 2008. As a company built on repeat and referral business, they needed a larger facility to accommodate the growing customer base and the huge volume of inventory.
Pickard Lane Leasing purchased and officially opened its doors at 12500 Highway 50 on August 23, 2008. The 8,000 square foot facility on about two acres of land accommodates a six-car indoor showroom, complete with an automotive finance and warranty department.
As a wholesale operation, Pickard Lane Leasing has access to hundreds of vehicles right across Ontario and Canada that come directly from the new car dealerships and leasing companies. Pickard Lane abides by a fair price policy, which means vehicles are competitively priced to ensure the best price for every customer.
“For certified vehicles, we price everything comparatively,” Fortino explained. “We are always looking for similar vehicles and make sure our vehicles are competitively priced. Our prices are always changing – sometimes we’ll change the price two or three times a week if we have to.”
Customers who purchase a vehicle at Pickard Lane Leasing will be provided with a complete accident and history report to ensure peace of mind and a confident buying experience. All retail vehicles are Certified and E Tested, with most of the work being done onsite by Pickard Lane’s licenced service department.
“The vast majority of our inventory is certified, which means it has been inspected by a certified mechanic and meets all safety standards,” said Fortino. “At Pickard Lane Leasing we go over and above the safety standards and recondition the vehicle as well. The owner does all the buying and he touches every single vehicle he purchases.”
In addition to their large inventory, Pickard Leasing boasts dedicated and knowledgeable sales staff and top-trained technicians who make the car shopping experience fun, easy and financially advantageous. The sales team, which together has 79 years of combined car experience and expertise consists of Giancarlo Fortino, Peter Amerato, Mario Kotnjek, Nizar Zeineddine, Ignazio Battaglia and Manbir Brar. As well as sales staff, Pickard Lane also has a diesel technician on staff, an apprentice, a licensed technician and two detailers.
Pickard Lane Leasing will be hosting its annual Soap for Hope Car Wash in August in support of Sick Kids Hospital.
