Vancouver Used Cars can be found from hundreds of used car dealerships across Greater Vancouver BC. Vancouver car dealerships come in so many varieties that it can be somewhat daunting when starting out looking for a good quality used car in BC.
Many car buyers think that it is best to shop or look for used cars Vancouver by owner, and for some who are mechanically inclined and know exactly what they are looking at, this can be a good tactic. If you are NOT someone who understands what to look for in a vehicle for sale by owner… it can also turn out to be your worst nightmare quite easily.
The best used car dealerships Vancouver has to offer, are usually the best route to take for many reasons including used car prices. Vancouver used car dealerships are completely dialed in when it comes to keeping their prices competitive on used cars. BC car dealers also offer many other car-buying benefits such as the best car financing experts in the province, warranties, service and also Someone to Complain To if there IS a problem with the used car you buy in BC.
Buying from a “Curber” carries with it great risks, because most disappear from sight before you get home with your used car, and there is very little that can be done if you buy a lemon.
A curber is an unlicensed individual or business selling vehicles for profit, often while posing as a private seller. Some operate more openly, usually also ignoring local bylaws, refusing to get a business licence or pay tax on their income. Curbers offer none of the protections the law provides for purchases from a Vehicle Sales Authority licensed dealer.
The Vehicle Sales Authority of BC can receive your complaint of you’ve bought a used car in BC that turns out to be a LEMON, but in reality… there is very little they are able to do for your specific case. That’s why we always recommend that you purchase a Vancouver used car from a VSA-licensed car dealership in BC. The VSA has very stringent rules that car dealerships in BC must abide by, and these rules are there to protect the Public when buying a used car in BC.
Vancouver Used Car Dealerships have some of the most competitive pricing you will find, and with all the other benefits of financing, warranties etc. it makes much more sense for the average consumer to find a Vancouver Car Dealer for peace of mind as well as avoiding the ramifications of putting your used car money into a car that turns out to be junk.
