Canada Drives: Shop Hundreds of Used Vehicles Online

Buying a car in Canada has never been easier. Now you can find your perfect ride online, have it delivered to your door, and even get a refund if you change your mind.

If you’ve never bought a car before (or not in a long time), you might be wondering where your car buying journey should begin.

Many Canadians admit that the traditional way of car buying—one that entails a lot of time in a car dealership negotiating, preparing documents, filling out paperwork, and scheduling test drives—is not very convenient.

Nowadays most car buyers don't need a car dealer telling them what to buy because there's so much information available online. But what if you could complete the entire purchase online? It would mean you'd never have to set foot in a dealership again, right?

That's where Canada Drives comes in.

Buy your car online

With Canada Drives, you can search our online inventory of certified used vehicles (retailing at award-winning prices) and have your perfect ride delivered to your doorstep. And you can do it all from your smartphone or laptop—no pressure from salespeople, and no risk of making a mistake thanks to our 7-day money back guarantee.

The average dealership has 30 to 40 used vehicles on its lot. How can you be expected to find a car you love with so few options? Canada Drives is the largest online vehicle retailer in the True North with thousands of vehicles to choose from and hundreds more passenger cars, SUVs, pickup trucks, and minivans arriving every week.

Right now, the online retailer is only available in some provinces, but very soon you'll be able to buy or sell your car with ease in every province and territory.

Car shopping made easy

Canada Drives reimagined car shopping to put Canadians in control of their car buying experience. Here are six ways they do that.

1. All vehicles are certified pre-owned 

All vehicles in Canada Drives inventory are meticulously reconditioned and serviced by professionals. Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles provide the assurance that you're buying one of the most reliable vehicles in the used car market while saving a lot of money on the price of a brand new car.

2. One-click inspection & history reports

When you see a vehicle you like, you’ll find all important car checks right there on the vehicle description page. All vehicles undergo a rigorous 150-point inspection, and you can view the inspection report for each car in an instant. All listings also feature a free CARFAX vehicle history report so that you can examine the most important information before you buy.

3. Built-in warranty protection

As a certified vehicle, your new car comes with a no-charge, 30-day warranty for extra peace of mind. You’ll also be given the option of an additional 24-, 36-, or 48-month extended warranty at the time of your purchase.

4. Fair, haggle-free pricing

Canada Drives strives for fairness and transparency, as reflected in our pricing. With no brick-and-mortar locations to fund, we save more than traditional dealerships, and those savings are passed onto the customer. Furthermore, the deal you get isn’t dependent on the strength of your negotiation skills. With Canada Drives ‘best-price-first’ pricing, you can skip the haggling altogether and still get the same great deal as everyone else. 

5. E-sign your paperwork

The paperwork required to become a car owner can be a real ordeal. You’re locked in the finance office (usually on a Saturday) and you feel burned out by the end of it like you just did your taxes. But with Canada Drives, all the essential paperwork is e-mailed to you to be completed on your schedule and in the comfort of your own home. You don’t need to leave the house, and you don’t even have to print anything; all documents can be signed digitally.

6. Better than a test drive

All vehicles purchased through Canada Drives come with a 7-day, no-questions-asked return policy. If you decide you don’t like the vehicle for any reason, Canada Drives will come to pick it up and give you a refund; no strings attached. With this test-own period, you’ll get six days and 23.5 hours longer to spend with the vehicle than you would during a typical 30-minute test drive!

How to buy a car online with Canada Drives

Buying a car with Canada Drives is incredibly simple and enjoyable; the way car shopping was always meant to be.

    1. Start your search

    Browse our certified inventory and choose your perfect car. You can search by year, make, model, and more to narrow down your options in seconds.

    If you plan to finance your car purchase, consider getting pre-approved before starting your search; a smart decision if you want to know what kind of financing you'll qualify for in advance. See below.

    It’s always wise to get pre-approved before you start looking at vehicles. Getting pre-approved for financing helps you stay focused on vehicles that fit comfortably within your price range, saving you time, frustration, and disappointment later on. A pre-approval from Canada Drives takes only two minutes and will not impact your credit score. 

    2. Choose your method of payment

     3. Schedule the delivery
