Are you a loan broker?

Absolutely Not!  And we aren’t a Third Party Company that will sell your application information to multiple car dealership.  We are a family-owned bricks and mortar car dealership that just happens to have one of the most diverse network of lenders and credit partners in the country!  Our job is to match your application to the right lender who can offer you the best option for your rates and payments.

Absolutely not! Although GetFinanced.ca mainly assists people in Atlantic Canada, we do have partner dealers all across Canada and we would be very happy to get your financing arranged for you and then pair you up with one of these certified partners to find you the right vehicle.

 

About Your Application and Loan:

I need a car soon! How long will it take?

Many of our applicants have been able to drive away with their new vehicles on the same day that they applied. When we receive your application, we get to work right away to match you with one of our trusted dealer partners, who will secure your approval and go over your options with you as quickly as possible.

Can you tell me what my interest rates will be?

That’s tough to do without some more information, as a variety of factors will come into play. Want to find out? Apply online for free, and one of our partners will be in touch before you know it to talk over your options.

I saw a monthly payment figure online – can you tell me what the total price and loan term are as well?

We can only advertise sample vehicles and payments based on our customers’ typical situations. As every situation is different, things like your monthly payment, finance terms, cash price, and down payment options will be customized for you. When you apply, a representative will go over all of these options with you, as well as answer any questions you might have.

I found a vehicle for sale privately. Can you help with that?

Sorry – we can’t secure loans for private purchase, but our trusted dealer partners have vast inventories and will likely find you a better vehicle or a better price than you’d get with a private seller. They will walk you through every step of your purchase – finding the perfect vehicle, trading in your current vehicle, financing, and anything else you need.

How much can I get pre-approved for?

It depends on several factors, and you can apply for free to find out what’s available to you. That being said, most of the people we help have a monthly budget in mind, and we work hard to accommodate your needs comfortably.

Are there any fees or obligations associated with applying?

Not at all! The application is fast, easy, and totally free and comes with no obligation. When you’re ready to purchase a vehicle, one of our specialists will be ready with your information to hunt down the best options available to you.

Is it true that applying can affect my credit?

Yes, and that’s exactly why our process is so important. Every time you apply for a loan, it will be reported and reflected in your credit. We don’t take this as lightly as some would, so when you apply for pre-approval, the specialists who handle your application will target lenders that are likely to respond favorably. This reduces the number of inquiries on your credit report and helps protect your credit. Didn’t we tell you we had you covered?

What terms and conditions should I know about?

Each situation is unique, and a variety of factors could produce the need for a co-signer, money down, OAC, WAC, etc. Apply now, and we’ll be in touch right away to talk about your unique set of options. Meanwhile, you can look over our Terms and Conditions here. LINK NEEDED

How much do I need for a down payment?

That will depend on the basic information provided in your application. While a down payment could lower your rates and monthly payments, many cases require no money down whatsoever.

Can I trade in my current vehicle?

Definitely. In most cases, a trade-in can act as a down payment and could substantially lower your monthly payments!

What if I still owe money on the car I'm trading in?

Not a problem – most people do! The positive or negative equity on your current vehicle will be applied to the terms of your new loan.

Do I need to be a Permanent Canadian Citizen to get auto financing?

Not necessarily! In many situations we can access automotive financing for people who are living / working in Canada but do not have full citizenship. Please contact one of our Credit Specialists or APPLY NOW to find out if we can help you!
