What is Clutch?
Clutch is an online platform that is reinventing the used car buying experience.
How are we different from AutoTrader or Kijiji?
We purchase our own inventory, which is then rigorously inspected and professionally photographed. We like to highlight wear and tear so you know we’re not trying to hide anything! After scheduling a test drive, one of our Clutch Concierges, who is rated on customer satisfaction, will greet you and help you decide if the car is a right fit. Instead of selling unneeded add-ons to squeeze out a few extra dollars, we’ve spent our time thinking about the perfect customer experience – gone are the days of cheap suits and high-pressure sales. With no expensive showroom and no commission salespeople, we are able to price our cars below other dealers.
Transparency, quality-cars, no pressure
A quick story on car buying: One of the Clutch founders headed to a local used car dealership to take a look at a 2009 BMW 335i. Excited to take it for a test drive, he jumped in the car and turned the key…no luck. The salesman asked him to step out so he could try – with excitement, he said, “oh it’s just the battery! I’ll grab the cables”. Safe to say, he didn’t purchase the BMW. At Clutch, we want our customers to feel safe about the car they purchase. Our rigorous inspection process ensures you won’t be buying a lemon .
When you find a car that interests you, feel free to click on the car to inspect the photos and learn more about it, or simply click the heart on the top right of the car card to save it for later (you can filter based on cars you have hearted).
Trying to figure out if it fits into your payment? Use our financing widget to get a good idea of your monthly payment based on your credit rating.
After you have met our Clutch Concierges, whose primary goal is to help you find a car that’s right for you, you’ll know why we started this. This feeling will continue as you move forward with your test drive and take ownership of a Clutch car (only if you love it!). We have partnered with the best financial institutions in the business, so you get the best possible rate.
If you decide you love it, scroll down and book a test drive! Once you’re booked, we’ll send you a link where you can get pre-approved for financing (only if you need it!) so you can find out what your monthly payment would be from the comfort of your home.
Thanks for coming along; we hope you enjoyed the ride. If you have any more questions or would like to learn more, check out more at Clutch.ca
Finally, if there is a car you don’t see in our inventory, let us know and we’ll see what we can do for you!
We look forward to meeting you!
