Out of Town Buyers


At Kamloops Ford, we know that there’s no substitute for shopping for your next vehicle in person. Although we provide our clients with countless statistics, pictures, and vehicle history, a new car or truck is a very personal decision, and you usually don’t know if it’s the right choice until you slip into the driver’s seat and go for a spin around beautiful Thompson Country.

That is why our new and pre-owned sales departments have made every possible effort to make the buying experience for our out of town and province clients as streamlined as possible. You’ll see that our selection of cars, trucks, and SUVs is so enticing that it’s worth the trip over to Kamloops, BC!

What is your vehicle reconditioning process?

Before being placed on the lot or showroom, all our new and pre-owned vehicles are inspected and serviced by our Ford-certified technicians or sent away to another garage should it be an off-brand and we don’t have the correct tooling. Then, the vehicle is put through an extensive detail process including hand wash, carpet/ interior surface cleaning, power polishing, rim repair, dent removal, etc.What if my vehicle is damaged in transit

In this unlikely scenario, the damage would be discovered during one of the multiple inspections and noted on the bill of lading. Since all our transport partners are fully insured, the damage would be quickly remedied at no cost to you.Will I need an inspection when I get my car?

If you’re driving or shipping you car to another province, you’ll need to get an out of province inspection in order for it to be insured and registered. All our cars are serviced in order to pass this inspection and it typically only costs around $100. We will also supply any service documentation over email should you need it.What are the advantages of a Ford Certified Pre-owned vehicle?

Kamloops Ford’s CPOs give you the best value and peace-of-mind in a used Ford car, truck, or SUV. All or CPOs have a 172-point mechanical inspection, 12-month comprehensive warranty, 7-year limited powertrain warranty, and 24-hour roadside assistance. What if my vehicle doesn’t have a factory or CPO warranty anymore?

Not a problem! Our finance and service departments can suggest a reasonable aftermarket warranty that will suit your specific driving needs. However, all our used cars, even non-Ford brands are given mechanical inspections and any service work should they require it. Only the best pre-owned stock makes it to the lot at Kamloops Ford. Why should I buy a BC vehicle over one from my home province?

Good question! The primary reason why our out of town customers come to Kamloops is because BC vehicles are generally in noticeably better condition than those from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, etc. Why? It’s simple: since BC’s climate is so much milder than the rest of Canada’s, our cars and trucks aren’t subjected to the damaging salt, gravel, hail storms, and pot holes that plague other provinces.

Do you offer protection packages and 3M?

Yes, our detail department has a full suite of extra protection services like paint sealant, leather treatment, and carpet stain guard. In addition, we also provide professionally installed window tint and custom 3M rock-chip protection before you pick up your new car. Our finance department has many good deals on these packages and can easily add it to your contract.
