As an out-of-town buyer, you only pay the taxes applicable to the province you live in. If arrangements are made to have your vehicle delivered inside Alberta, then we only charge GST (5%) as delivery is taking place in your province.
A Provincial Sales Tax (PST) will apply to customers shipping a vehicle to Saskatchewan, Manitoba or other provinces with a PST. The Canada Revenue Agency has additional resources on out-of-province purchases.
Many of our clients choose to ship their new vehicle. Our trusted shipping partners will ensure that your vehicle arrives in a timely manner and in the condition it departed.
