Out of Town Experience
Penticton Hyundai’s Out of Town Buyers program caters to traveling customers with convenient options for picking up or shipping your vehicle. We can help you get your vehicle whether you live in BC or outside of the province.
When you can’t see your vehicle in person, you still want to know that you’re making a solid purchase. Penticton Hyundai has systems in place so that you learn as much about your vehicle as if you were right on our showroom floor.
We’ll give you a personalized video of the vehicle you are purchasing, as well as a mechanical report, ICBC or CarProof claims history, and full disclosure at every point of the process.

You will only have to pay the tax of your province of residence. If you live outside of BC, you can avoid paying PST if you meet the following criteria.
- Complete and sign a form FIN 440. (We will provide this to you.)
- Bring with you at least two pieces of ID as proof of residency in a province other than British Columbia. Acceptable forms of ID are as follows:
- Driver’s license
- Medical plan card
- Utility bill with address of service
- Vehicle registration. (We cannot accept the vehicle registration and driver’s license together as it does not prove residency)
Credit cards, social insurance cards or birth certificates are not acceptable identification.
If you live in a province with a PST, then we will only charge 5% GST (if you meet the above criterion). You will then pay your home Province tax (provincial PST) when you register your vehicle.
If the customer is a resident of a province that has HST (i.e. Ontario) we have two options.
- Charge 5% GST. In this case the customer will need to deal with the additional tax due when they try and register the vehicle in their province
- Charge the customer the applicable HST rate in their province
We offer a number of reliable shipping options for our customers and we will keep you informed at every stop of the process. Our shipping partners are fully insured, and will ensure your vehicle arrives in a timely manner and in the condition it left our dealership.
Before your vehicle leaves, we will shoot a high definition video to document its condition and give you something to watch as you look forward to the arrival of your new car.
Trading In A Vehicle
In addition to shipping your vehicle to you, we can also arrange to have your trade-in shipped to us. Just fill out a trade-in form and we will do a market analysis of your vehicle so you can be sure you’re getting a competitive value.

I have never bought a vehicle without seeing it. How do I know that it is in fact in good condition?
With our convenient and Central Okanagan location, we can provide you with all of the information that you will need to make a purchase decision: Car Proof or ICBC accident report, mechanical report, and a full personalized video of the vehicle you are looking to purchase.
What if my vehicle is damaged during shipping?
Our shipping partners are fully insured and any new damages found after transport will be rectified. Your Sales Consultant will send you a final video walk around on your vehicle after it has been detailed and before delivery, so you have a record of the condition before it leaves our dealership. Our shipping partners are just that, partners, and we work together to ensure that you, our mutual client, are taken care of.
Do I have to get an inspection on my car once it arrives?
If your new vehicle is a pre-owned vehicle and is being shipped outside of B.C. to another province then yes, it will have to have an out of province inspection. This low-cost inspection is a formality to ensure that the vehicle you are bringing in meets the requirements of your province. Our reconditioning standards mean that the vehicle that you are purchasing will meet the requirements of your home province. You will also receive via email, the service inspection on this vehicle and the printed copies will arrive with the vehicle as well.
What does certified mean and what does it get me?
All major manufacturers have now committed to the re-marketing of their respective brands. For Hyundai, it means attractive pricing, offering competitive sub-vented finance rates, warranty options, and confidence of our stringent inspection and reconditioning standards.
So if I am not buying a Hyundai does that mean I am getting a substandard vehicle?
Absolutely not, we are dedicated to ensuring that we sell a quality vehicle no matter what the brand is. Our entire pre-owned inventory has been fully safety inspected and reconditioned to the standards set by our dealership and dealer group.
What kind of finance rate would I get?
We work with a number of financial institutions to ensure that we get you the most competitive rate for the vehicle you are purchasing. A number of factors can affect what rate we can get. Our financial services office will work diligently to ensure we are getting the best rate for the vehicle you are buying.
What kind of guarantee or warranty do I get?
Depending on the vehicle that you are purchasing, there may or may not be any remaining manufacturer’s warranty. For added peace of mind, we offer and can tailor a warranty to your specific driving needs. Our Sales Consultants and Financial Services managers will work with you to ensure you are getting the proper and adequate coverage for your new vehicle.
Do you offer protection packages or 3M?
Yes, as a full-service dealership we offer many products intended to protect your new investment. 3M, rustproofing, undercoat, paint protection, leather and vinyl protection and window tint are all items offered through our dealership. These items can also be added to any finance or lease contracts.
