Out Of Town Buyers

As an out-of-town buyer, Wheaton Hyundai understands that you will have a unique set of questions and needs regarding your purchase. We are dedicated to ensuring that you have a smooth and seamless purchase experience, and we are here to help answer all of your questions regarding your purchase. If you would like any point clarified, or would like more information, one of our Sales Staff would be happy to assist you.


Transparency is a key part of buying a vehicle, and is especially important when you are not here to physically see the vehicle that you will be purchasing. To ease the process, Wheaton Hyundai will provide you with a detailed high-definition video of your vehicle so that you can look over every aspect for yourself. We will also give you a detailed mechanical report, and an ICBC or CarProof claims history with full disclosure at every point of the process. Our dedicated staff will do everything in their power to ensure that your needs are not only met, but are exceeded.


The tax process is actually simple. You only pay the portion of taxes for the province where you live. We will provide you with all of the required government forms, and you will be reimbursed any taxes that you would not pay in your own province (usually within 4 – 6 weeks). The Canada Revenue Agency has additional details on out-of-province purchases. Say that you live in Alberta. You have two options:

1. Picking up the vehicle in Nanaimo:

If you choose to pick up your vehicle and drive it home, you will have to pay PST and GST (12%) at the point of purchase. After the Government receives and processes your forms, they will reimburse you the PST (7%) portion, guaranteed.

2. Shipping the vehicle:

If you make arrangements to deliver a vehicle to a non-HST province, then you will only pay GST (5%), which you will be charged at the point of delivery.


Shipping is an attractive option for many of our clients, and we have a large network of trusted partners that will ensure that your vehicle arrives in a timely manner, and that it will be properly cared for on its journey. Our Sales Administrator and Management team will keep you informed through every step of the way.


You can still benefit from the tax savings that you receive by trading a vehicle in, and if you need our shipping department can arrange to have your trade-in shipped to our location. Simply fill out our online trade-in evaluation form and we will do a full market review of your vehicle to ensure that you get a competitive value.
