Three Secrets to Buy a Car, Truck or SUV

So what changed? Are you tired of commuting? Is it a new job? It’s just time to have your own ride? Regardless of what it was, you feel ready to join the 84% of people in Canada that own a car. If this is the case, we’ll give you three secrets to buy a car, truck, or SUV effortlessly.


1. Research + You = BFFS


What I like the most about online shopping is reading reviews. I feel confident when I know that other customers are satisfied with the items that I’m buying.

Do the same with your car. Find reviews of the models that you like and read what others are saying about them. You’ll see what the pros and cons of the vehicle are. In addition to this information, you will find other ride options along the way.


Since we’re mentioning options (and trust me, you’ll have many!) consider your lifestyle when you pick vehicles. List what you want in a car and how you would use it. Will you drive long distances? Does it need to be kid-friendly? Will you carry heavy materials in it?

Once you have all these answers, you’ll be able to narrow down your alternatives.


2. Let’s Talk Paper


There’s no way to get out of extensive paperwork when you buy a car, but you can always be prepared for it.

See what documents you already have and what you still need to get. Put them all in a folder and store them somewhere safe (make sure you remember where you put them!).

For example, here’s a list of what you will need, but keep in mind that certain places could ask for more/less items:

  • Driver’s license
  • Proof of insurance
  • Pay stubs
  • References
  • Form of payment
  • Credit score


Talking about the other kind of paper, you need to figure out your budget. Feel free to use our car payment calculator in Canada to check how much you should be paying monthly.
