Our company is a vehicle locating company. We are looking to add dealers to our network who offer outstanding customer service and fleet pricing. We have been around for 2.5 years and have an outstanding reputation in Canada and a small but loyal base in the United States. Our in house vehicle locating specialists work similar to a broker however, we do not charge our clients a fee and are paid only by the dealer. Our fees are much lower than most brokers. Our staff are trained automotive pros who typically had low numbers but outstanding CSI on the floor at mostly luxury dealerships.

If you would like to get some of our clients please email me or call 1-888-446-2321

There is no fee to be a member dealer. Only dealers with low admin fees, clean vehicles, and upfront pricing will be considered. We have invoice information for most brands making your life easier.

Now powered by Autodata Solutions, many DSPs (Dealership Service Providers) are now moving into the Canadian market, including ADP and, with phenomenal success. There are Canadian companies, too (e-Dealer, EZ Resluts, CAX, etc.), with more to be announced this year. They are armed with the content and tools that will help you gain a competitive edge in your market.

Canadian dealers can now choose solutions from companies who provide timely, bilingual vehicle data (new & used) w/ full descriptions, postal code-specific incentives, OEM-accurate configurations, multi-gallery imagery and engaging editorial.

More DSPs are gearing-up to enter your market -- and many of them will be worth your time and money. Most of them are well-established companies that can provide a better reaseach and buying experience than the existing Canadian auto portals. Those, too, are about to get a facelift...

In the coming months, I hope to see more Canadian dealers join this group so I can gain feedback on some upcoming initiatives. Thank you.
