Marlin Leasing300 Fellowship Rd Mount Laurel, New Jersey United States of America
I initially signed a lease with Coast Financial for a single head commercial embroidery machine in Nov. of 2006. In Dec. of 2007 this lease was transferred to Marlin Leasing. The original lease clearly stated that it was a 36 month lease with a 10% buyout. As the end of the lease was approaching I attempted to contact Marlin re: the buyout amount with no return of my phone calls. I kept waiting for an invoice identifying the buyout amount. In July of 2010, they sent me a letter indicating that my "existing lease expires on 02/16/2011". This should have expired on 02/16/2010. To my horror they had renewed my lease for an additional year for the same payments without contacting me prior to the end of the original lease. When I contacted them and finally talked to a real person, they indicated that unless I notified them 90 -180 days prior to end of the original lease, they automatically renewed it for another year. When I asked why they had not contacted me prior to the end of the original lease, they stated, "We don't have to do that". So I paid an additional $1200.00 on this lease. I am aware that I should have been more diligent in noticing that payments continued to be automatically deducted from my account. I find it difficult to understand that automatically renewing a lease which had clear provisions would even be legal. It certainly does not say much for Marlin's customer service. An expensive lesson.
