What is a Buy Here Pay Here Car Dealership?
"Buy Here Pay Here" (BHPH) refers to a way of running a car dealership. The dealer extends a loan/financing to the buyer either directly or through a private in-house lender. With BHPH dealers like Drive Now, all financing decisions and requirements are made in-house.
Dealerships that are not BHPH typically use the the auto manufacturer's credit company or bank to finance the buyer's loan.
Why should I buy from Drive Now rather than anyone else?
Our difference is that unlike some of our competitors our customers are people, not numbers. You are not your credit score. You are not merely a sale. We are in this business to help people who need a car and to assist them in meeting their family, work, and school needs. We have an unusually high rate of customers who return to us to buy their next vehicle. We like to think that valuing our customers as people and showing genuine appreciation has something to do with our high customer satisfaction!
Can I sell my car to you?
Yes! Bring your car in and we'll give you a quote. Or you can use it as a trade-in. Call us at 816-556-0707 or email Mike S at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will get back to you shortly!
What is the process of buying a car through Drive Now?
We want our customers to feel empowered to make smart decisions. We recommend you take the time to know what you can afford for payments and a down payment before you come in. After that, we can have a productive discussion about getting you into the right vehicle with the right terms.
Do I need an appointment?
No appointment necessary! Stop by during store hours and we'll have someone take care of you. We do value your time, so if you do call ahead and make an appointment we'll reserve a time and a salesperson to work with you right away.
How much money should I have for a down payment?
In a nutshell, this really depends on you! What is the payment you can afford and what is the vehicle you desire? These factors are different for everyone which means down payments are different for everyone. We do take trade-ins, so if you have a vehicle you might like to trade in, bring it with you when you come to browse and we can let you know the value.
Can I purchase a vehicle, complete the paperwork, and drive home in the same day?
This is certainly our goal! Give us a call or come by to discuss!

Your payment schedule with Drive Now will usually mirror your payment schedule with work- on a weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly schedule. We will determine the frequency of your payments when you buy a car with us.

"Great friendly people who will work with you and your budget. I would recommend drive now."
"I was extremely nervous due to my not so great credit score. I inquired about a car on their website and within 30 minutes or less, I received a phone call from Mary in Sales. The whole team made it a smooth process for me and even worked with me to get in the car I wanted. I was also able to drive off the lot that very same day but I didn't due to my own personal reasons. I love my new car and I would recommend DriveNow to any and everyone!"
"Best car dealer! People here are amazing! You will regret it if you don't come here!"
