Most of our cars are of the latest model, but sometimes we buy cars from a previous model type. The price advantage on end of series cars is huge. Such bargains are up to 40% cheaper, we do not want to spare you from that.
A lease is similar to a long term rental. There is the lease giver, who owns the car. This person or company bought the car, paid registration tax, paid for the insurance and registered the car in his/her name. If reparations are required it is the purchaser that will be held accountable. The purchase invoice is for the leasing company.
On the other hand you have the leaseholder. This person pays rent in exchange for the use of the vehicle.
At the end of the lease contract the leaseholder will most likely return the car. But the leaseholder can also choose to buy the lease car. In this case a price will be determined and paid to take over the car. The new owner (the previous leaseholder) will have to pay the registration tax.
Comfort + is a combination of an installment loan with a Service+ maintenance contract. In this case there is no rental. The car is paid for by and financed by the customer. Thanks to Service + the customer doesn’t have to worry about: warranty, maintenance, travel assistance or breakdown assistance. This is all covered. As a customer you only have to pay for fuel, insurance and taxes.
The car will be registered in the name of the customer. The invoice will also be made in the customer’s name.
After 5 years the customer can choose between:
- Purchasing a new car (with Comfort+)
- Continue driving your car and pay the residual value (30%)
- You give your car back to Cardoen and pay nothing extra
The advantage of Comfort+ is that you as a customer become owner of the vehicle. At the beginning of the contract you know what the residual value will be. If you decide to keep the car you don’t have to pay for the registration tax.

FAQ about the Cardoen service center
Each Cardoen car supermarket has its own workshop (except Tournai) with perfectly trained mechanics. If you would like to go elsewhere for the maintenance of your car, that is not a problem. From experience we know that Cardoen customers are received well everywhere.
A brand dealer earns from the sale of its cars hardly anything. The maintenance of the vehicles, however, is cost-effective. It is therefore logical that they would like to receive new customers for maintenance, including Cardoen customers.
The hourly rates of each garage are fixed and should be used for each customer. Most brands have certain fixed prices for small and major maintenance in advance. It does not matter where you bought the car that you offer to the dealer to determine the price of the maintenance.
If you buy a new car at Cardoen, repair under warranty can be made by the garage of your choice. Cardoen regulates the administration and payment directly with him. You can find the procedure in your Cardoen guarantee booklet. Contact your mechanic at Cardoen before performing the repair. The reperation of nearly new cars in warranty has to happen in the office where you bought your car. If you have an extended warranty or "Service +" on your new car, maintenance happens at Cardoen.
The Cardoen cars come with a Belgian conformity certificate and a valid inspection document. Only new cars that had no registration, should have no inspection document. Your car must therefore, like any other car, undergo technical inspection.
The Cardoen mechanics can do 95% of all the work in the Cardoen service center. For the other 5 % of specific jobs, we closly work with specialists. Cardoen arranges everything for you, so that you have only one contact person.
