New Kids on the Block

This year, we've added more new vehicles to our fleet than any previous year to keep up with demand, including locations in Richmond, Surrey and Vancouver! In addition to some of your favourite makes and models, we've been able to add brand new ones like our BMW X1, which is part of our Premium offering.


Have you been behind the wheel of a new Modo? Snap a photo and share it with us online! Because why own a car when you can share 500?


You can get behind the wheel of our BMW today and save 10% on your booking as part of our Seat Sale until September 15! Check out the section below to see other vehicles on sale now!
