What does your credit score mean?

Your credit score is designed to help financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, credit card, etc. Essentially, it's meant to forecast how (and if) you will pay your bills.

The higher your credit score, the greater your chance of receiving a better financing offer from Georgetown Chevrolet. Four contributors to your credit score are:

  • Timeliness of previous and current payments
  • The length of your credit history
  • The type and amount of your debts
  • Your public records

What documents should I bring?

All buyers should bring a valid government-issued drivers license, a current pay stub, and a void cheque. Because different financing companies may require additional documentation, you will want to contact a Sales Consultant for a complete list of what you'll need to buy a car from Georgetown Chevrolet.

If you also intend to sell a vehicle to Georgetown Chevrolet, please contact a Sales Consultant for a complete list of what you'll need.
