Our Story

Centennial Leasing & Sales was started by two entrepreneurs who liked the car business but hated the typical car dealership tactics. In 1984, they came together and created a company focused on providing a better and more honest way for people to buy or lease a vehicle. Both founders had commercial leasing experience, so they started the company as a leasing brokerage for all makes and models and focused on offering a higher level of personal service for both businesses and consumers. Our company soon evolved and began offering our same first-class service to individuals looking to purchase vehicles as well. As business continued to grow they expanded Centennial Leasing & Sales into other markets while remaining locally owned and operated. There are now three locations in Denver Metro, Northern Colorado, and Phoenix Metro, Arizona.
