The Right Choice For High-Quality, Affordable Pre-Owned Trucks
Here in BC, pickup trucks are incredibly popular. It makes a lot of sense; a good truck is great for both work or play, and in Kelowna we like to do both. There's nothing better than bringing your boat to the lake for some fun after a long, productive week at work. And if you're a contractor or tradesperson, a pickup truck is a must. We carry a huge selection of pre-owned trucks, so browse our inventory and find your next pickup.
Who Needs a Truck?
A pickup truck makes sense for a lot of different types of people. A truck is pretty much mandatory at any construction or job site, but the average Joe or Jane can take advantage of a pickup's benefits, too. For those who like to do work and complete projects around the house, a pickup allows you to transport materials from the store; people who like to garden will love the ability to haul soil, rocks, flowers, and shrubs; and for anyone who wants a safe, rugged vehicle for winter driving - there's nothing better than a pickup truck. In other words, a truck makes sense for just about everyone.
Not all trucks are created equal and we go to great lengths to ensure we only offer our customers the best pre-owned trucks available. All trucks go through an extensive inspection before they're put up for sale, and we aim to carry the best truck brands available, including Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Ram.

What's Better a Gas or Diesel Truck?
It's really not about being better or worse, it's about having different capabilities. Gas pickups are more common than diesel, and for the average person a gas truck is what you're looking for. Since they are more common, you'll likely pay less for a gas truck compared to a similar diesel truck. Gas powered trucks tend to be better for commuting and driving long distances; gas trucks excel when producing horsepower in comparison to a diesel. Diesel trucks, however, are much better at producing torque, which is key when towing or hauling heavy loads. For anyone looking to tow heavy equipment, large trailers, or heavy loads like gravel and rock, a diesel truck may be the right choice for you.
What's the Best Truck Brand?
There is no right answer to this question, and if we tried people would get really mad. Truck drivers are passionate about what they drive, and what company builds the best truck has been a topic of debate for a long time. A few truck brands do stand out, though. We tend to carry durable and reliable Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Ram trucks. All are made in North America and have decades of experience producing trucks for the needs of Canadians.
Light Duty, Medium Duty, Heavy Duty? What's the Difference?
Trucks come in all shapes, sizes and capabilities a light duty truck is generally classified as a truck with a payload capacity ranging from 1,500 - 3,000 lbs and a towing capacity of 12,000 lbs. Popular light duty pickups include the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, and Ram 1500. Heavy duty pickups, in comparison, have towing capacities exceeding 20,000 lbs and payload capacities of 6,500 lbs. The Ram 2500 and 3500, and Ford F-250 and F-350 are common heavy duty pickups.
