At Griffin Motors, we take great care to establish the true condition of the vehicle before purchasing it. We employ a thorough "due diligence" process which includes the following steps:
- We do a full background check on the vehicle via CARFAX AND CARPROOF;
- We examine inspection reports already available; and
- For cars sourced from the USA, we hire an independent licensed vehicle inspector to give us an unbiased report on the true condition of the vehicle.
- We discuss the results of our background checks with you PRIOR to ordering.
Depending on which where the vehicle is purchased, the delivery process can take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks. When purchasing through Griffin Motors you will always be "in the know" on the status of your vehicle's journey to your driveway.
Griffin Motors provides both financing and leasing options to our clients (on approved credit). ADDITIONALLY, we will generally accept your trade in vehicle, providing you significant tax savings versus selling your vehicle privately. Where else can you source a car from anywhere in North America and have access to financing, leasing and the ability to trade in your car?
Generally, you do not have to pay up front for the car. Should you cancel, the only fees payable will be a non-refundable security deposit. When you accept the vehicle, payment in full will be required. All of these matters are discussed PRIOR to ordering so expectations are clear.
Yes, you can. There will, however, be some fees associated with cancellation. Custom ordering and bringing in a vehicle takes a lot of time and associated resources. Exceptions to this policy may apply if you are ordering a very "unique" vehicle (for example a pink Porsche 911 with an automatic transmission) that would be difficult for us to sell should you not complete the purchase. Cancellation policies applicable to each order are discussed upfront to avoid surprises.
The majority of manufacturers honour warranties on properly imported U.S vehicles. At the ordering stage, we discuss warranties and whether or not they apply. ADDITIONALLY, we can offer comprehensive extended warranties on most imported vehicles if we import, inspect and register them.
Whenever Griffin Motors quotes a price on a vehicle you will pay the landed price in Canadian dollars before tax. Any fees and expenses that come along with the import process will be included in this price. This makes it very easy to quote and gives the customer an accurate idea to how much they saved versus buying a Canadian vehicle. Each and every case in unique so we encourage you to come in and chat with us.
Before delivering the car to you, we ensure that all of the required inspections are completed and the import process is FULLY completed (for US cars). We also do a comprehensive 140 point inspection on the vehicle as well as a Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Inspection. Any issues required to address the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle inspection will have to be completed prior to delivery and other items, not safety related, will be discussed with you prior to being dealt with. Costs related to these inspections are discussed in the ordering stage of our process.
Give us a call and we'll set-up a time to discuss your needs. You will not be disappointed!
