Choosing your next vehicle

Just because you’re spending more time at home these days doesn’t mean that your need for a reliable set of wheels has disappeared - if anything, folks are more dependent on their vehicles now than ever before. That’s why BC DRIVE is making it possible to skip the dealership by offering a 100% online vehicle financing experience. Yep, you heard that right! Whether you’re shopping with us from Vancouver Island, Northern BC or the Lower Mainland and everything in between, you’ll be able to secure the financing you need, and score the vehicle you want, right from the comfort of your own home. So how does it work? Let’s take a look at how simple our online financing process really is!

BC DRIVE Offers Two Convenient Ways to Purchase a Vehicle Online

With BC DRIVE, you’ll choose your own adventure: shop vehicle-first or payment-first - it’s up to you! When you choose to shop vehicle-first, we’ll take all of your vehicle preferences into account as we search for your perfect ride. We work with an extensive network of dealers all across British Columbia, making it easy for us to track down the type of car that you’re looking for. Next, we’ll get to work securing you a flexible and affordable financing rate with a trustworthy lender. You’ll have a personalized experience throughout, ensuring that you get the vehicle you want at a price that you can afford.


Many of our BC DRIVE customers prefer to shop payment-first. This means that we look at important factors like your income, monthly expenses, and potential downpayment to create a vehicle financing budget first. Then, we tap our network to find top-quality vehicles that will fit within your budget, and present you with your options. Your dedicated BC DRIVE finance professional will be there to guide you every step of the way, ensuring that your new car payment is completely manageable. And don’t forget: we have access to a massive network of inventory, which means that you’re guaranteed to drive away in a set of wheels that you love.


So why do so many BC drivers choose our unique payment-first option? Sometimes, vehicles can be listed at a price that’s not inclusive of taxes, interest rates and additional fees. A car might seem affordable, but once everything is finalized the monthly cost can end up being significantly more than you originally bargained for. This can lead to disappointment when you realize you can’t afford a particular vehicle that you’ve fallen in love with, financial hardship if you can no longer afford your monthly payments, or even negatively affect your credit score. By shopping payment-first, you’re guaranteed to get behind the wheel of a car that you love and that fits into your monthly budget. No disappointment and no missed payments - just a top quality, affordable new ride!
