Frequently Asked Questions

Why sell at Car Motive?
Car Motive’s Buying Service makes selling your car quicker and easier than selling it privately. You will not need to purchase local ads, post your car online, or let strangers test drive your car. Instead, just fill out our online form. Once you do, bring your car to our dealership for an official appraisal and receive an offer voucher. Our offer voucher is valid for seven days1 and can be redeemed for a check.
Our official appraisal considers the vehicle’s age, condition, features and options, and the vehicle’s history. We will inspect how your vehicle drives, and verify the condition and mileage. If repairs are needed, we may adjust our offer accordingly. The offer voucher you receive is good for seven days1. You can redeem the voucher for a check in the amount stated, less any remaining payoff amount if you have a lien on the vehicle.
These items you’ll need to bring with you to the dealership when selling your car:
  • Titleholder of car with valid, province-issued photo ID
  • Your car’s title or payoff information
  • Most current and valid registrations
  • All sets of keys
No, bring your car in after completing the online form, to the dealership, and we will assist you. If you are short on time, give us a call or text us before you arrive to make sure you will be seen promptly.
No, we will offer you the same price for your car whether you are buying a car from us or not.
If you redeem the voucher between 8am-2pm Monday thru Friday, you will receive your check within 48 hours. If the check request is received after these hours, it will be processed on the following business day.
