Out of Town Buyers Program – Toyota on the Trail
Toyota on the Trail is dedicated to giving our out-of-town buyers a smooth and easy purchase experience. We will do everything we can to ensure you have a comfortable stay in Edmonton while you are shopping at your dealership, and we also offer convenient shipping options to get your vehicle to you.
We regularly ship vehicles to customers from across Alberta, and we can accommodate shipping requests across Canada. Please contact us for detailed information on shipping rates to other provinces, or if you have any other questions or concerns.
If you are unable to visit our dealership directly to pick up your vehicle, then you want to be sure that you’re protected. Below are some of our most commonly asked questions about vehicle shipping and out-of-town purchases.
Out-of-town-buyers pay the taxes applicable to the province they live in. If you are delivering inside Alberta, then standard GST rates will apply (5%). If you are shipping a vehicle outside of Alberta to a province with PST, then additional taxes will apply.
The Canada Revenue Agency has additional resources on out-of-province purchases.
If you choose to ship a vehicle, then you want to be sure that your purchase is protected. We have a short list of trusted shipping partners that will ensure your vehicle arrives in a timely manner, and in the condition it left our dealership. We can provide an array of professional photos of your vehicle before it leaves so you can verify its condition and we can keep you informed during every step of the shipping process.
The average cost to ship a vehicle almost anywhere inside Alberta is $300, and approximately $500 to Saskatchewan. We can include a shipping quote if requested, and will accommodate shipping to anywhere in Canada.
Trading in a Vehicle
Toyota on the Trail can evaluate your trade-in without you even having to bring it in. Provide as much information as possible including vehicle description, equipment, and any pictures or video that you can provide so we can give you the best possible value for your trade. We can even arrange to have your trade-in shipped to us to make it easy for you.

How do I know a vehicle is in good condition if I buy it without seeing it?
Toyota on the Trail will provide you with all of the information that you will need to make an informed purchase decision including Car Proof accident reports, mechanical reports, and a range of professional photos so you can see 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. Our team can take a range of professional photos to document the shape of your vehicle before it leaves our dealership so you will have a record of its condition before it leads or dealership. Our shipping partners work with us to ensure that you are taken care of at every step of the process.
Do I have to get an inspection once my car arrives?
If you are purchasing a pre-owned vehicle and shipping it outside of the province, then it will require 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.
Every vehicle we sell at Toyota on the Trail must meet our high reconditioning standards, and that means our vehicles will meet the requirements of your home province. You will receive the service inspection of your vehicle via email and the printed copies will arrive with your vehicle.
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.
With in-house financing services, you have an excellent chance of getting approved, and by working with some of the largest financial institutions in the province we are able to provide excellent rates to our customers. Check with one of our sales associates for current financing offerings and incentives.
What are my warranty options?
If you are purchasing a vehicle at Toyota on the Trail, then you will benefit from the entire range of Toyota warranty benefits for new vehicles as well as used Toyota benefits through our Toyota Certified Used program with a minimum of 12-month/20,000 km Powertrain and Roadside Assistance coverage.
For additional peace of mind, we also offer extended warranties 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.
If I’m not buying a Certified Used Toyota, am I getting a sub-standard vehicle?
Absolutely not. All of the vehicles in our pre-owned inventory have been fully inspected and found to meet the high standards set by our dealership. You can be confident in your purchase, no matter what brand you choose.
Do you offer protection packages or 3M?
Yes, as a full service dealership, Toyota on the Trail offers a variety of vehicle protection products intended to protect your new investment and we can easily install these products before you take delivery of your vehicle.
