Our Company—Over 30 years of Success and Leadership
Northland Auto Solutions is proud to be your preferred dealership solutions and insurance services provider. Founded in 1990 by Executive Director Allen Lentsch, we provide dealers with programs to support used car leasing, daily rentals, and all your dealership’s insurance needs. Northland is also known for ancillary products such as bonds, dealer supplies and GPS devices.
The real surprise you’ll find in doing business with us is that we are approachable, knowledgeable, and share our experiences in ways that you can understand, learn from, and follow.
Our founder Allen Lentsch saw an issue back in 1990. He noticed BHPH industries were experiencing a steady increase in vehicle repossessions due to the financial strains of their customers. On average, 24% of all vehicles sold in a year were repossessed by dealerships. As a result, dealers would lose out on sales and customers would suffer a worsened credit score, leaving them unable to purchase a vehicle later.
Believing there must be a better way to do business than this, Allen Lentsch devised a system based on a very simple idea: If people could bring vehicles back and not be penalized with more fees or repossessions, there would be no additional harm done to their credit. As a result, Lease’T’Own® was born.
This business model gives sub-prime customers the ability to pay for periodic use of a car with the option to purchase or return it at any time, for any reason, without penalty. Almost immediately we could see the benefits of this model, with dealerships “wowing” customers with their flexibility and customers bringing more business to the dealership by word-of-mouth. A win for everyone involved!
Today, Northland Auto Solutions is a preferred provider for dealerships. With our Lease’T’Own® business model, these programs prove to be more profitable than Retail and Wholesale Models and less risky than BHPH.
With over 30 years of proven history and service in 50 states, Northland Auto Solutions makes dealer solutions simple. Contact us to become your town’s preferred dealership today!
