Purchasing a Used Car as a Canadian Immigrant

If you are a Canadian immigrant located in Ontario, our team at Good Fellow’s Auto Wholesalers has put together this post to give you general information that is important to know for obtaining a used car. This guide is going to help you make a valuable investment and let you in on everything you need to know regarding this type of purchase. Let’s jump into this car financing guide together.

Get to Know Your Credit Score

In Canada, a good credit score is considered 600 and any score over 720 is known as a great credit score. The better your credit score is, the better rates you will be able to obtain. There are two credit reporting agencies in Canada that keep records on everyone. They include Equifax and TransUnion. You most likely have a profile in their database. If you are looking for a harmless way to check your score, we recommend using Credit Karma.

When checking your credit score, it’s important to look for mistakes. If you notice one, it’s best to file a dispute right away to Equifax and TransUnion. Mistakes can bring down your credit score and if they are legitimate, they can be removed. If you check your score and notice that it is lower than you would like, the best thing to do is to reduce the debt you owe. This means making payments on overdue debts.

Select Your Vehicle

Are you familiar with the vehicle you want? If not, no need to worry. Our friendly sales team can help. Depending on what you intend to use the vehicle for and what type of features you want, our team can guide you in the right direction. Our team would always recommend purchasing a fuel economy vehicle and ones that come with a warranty. We would also recommend that you avoid purchasing from a private seller as it’s better to work with a registered dealership that has an established reputation and track record.
