One of the most asked questions we get here at Canada Drives is “can I see a list of your dealerships” or “what dealership has your programs in a particular city”. Here is what you can expect at every Canada Drives dealership:
Staff: Every dealership that partners with Canada Drives is screened to ensure they have staff dedicated to working on our applications. When you apply you will have a dedicated vehicle credit specialist who handles your application and they have agreed to be committed to the highest level of customer service. They will be able to identify the best programs for your situation and listen to your vehicle needs to help find a vehicle that not only works with your approval, but also your budget and needs.
If you’ve noticed when you go into most dealerships you will have to deal with a salesman who has no experience working with unique and challenging credit situations. They may help you find a vehicle, but when it comes to getting you approved, chances are they won’t have the right resources available going to help and you’ll be left disappointed.
Inventory: Every one of our dealerships are required to have certain selection of vehicles in their inventory. In order to be a Canada Drives dealer partner they are required to have a wide variety of cars, trucks, suvs and minivans. The vehicles should be both from domestic (Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, etc.) as well as import (Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, etc.) manufacturers. Never should a customer feel like a dealership’s lack of choices is what’s preventing them from being happy.
Programs: Every partner dealership will have access to a wide variety of programs. They will strive to get each customer approved for the best program they can. They will have access to regular lenders like TD, BMO, RBC, etc as well as alternative lenders like Scotia Dealer Advantage, CarFinco, Rifco, etc. Often the partner dealership will offer in-house financing. In-house financing allow them to get customers approved who don’t qualify for any other programs by lending their own money for the approval.
Additional Services: Almost all of our dealerships offer some form of vehicle delivery service. This is particularly important if you live in a more remote or rural part of Canada. We understand that if you if your vehicle broke down you may have no way of coming to the dealership.
It is part of our guaranteed approval process that you feel that you received the highest level of service through the whole process of your Canada Drives approval. If you feel that a dealership you worked with didn’t meet the above criteria – we want to hear from you. We are always working to improve our service and that’s why we only have the absolutely best partners in the country.
