How does Patrick Direct work?

Patrick Direct is simple, the way that our family-owned business intended. All you have to do is:

  1. Choose a vehicle
  2. Customize your payment
    • Once you find the car, truck or SUV that you’re interested in, if you take a look at the details about the vehicle, you’ll notice a nifty button that says “Buy Online with Patrick Direct”. Once you click the button, a popup will appear that will allow you to customize your payment to what you can afford. You can change how much money you’d like to put down at signing, change your credit score, select a preferred lease/loan term and mileage amounts (if applicable).
  3. Value your trade-in (if applicable)
    • If you want to trade-in your vehicle to put additional money down on your new vehicle, you can value your trade.
  4. Apply for financing
    • If you want to make the process even faster, you can apply for financing right on our website. We understand that not everybody may be comfortable with this, but we assure you that our credit application is 100% secure.
  5. Submit your offer
    • The final step is to submit your offer. Once you submit, our client advisors will review all of your information and be in touch with you to finalize your purchase or lease.

Gone be the days of having to complete (from start to finish) the car buying process from the dealership! If you take advantage of Patrick Direct, you can complete the majority of the process from the comfort of your own home or workplace so that you can spend more time doing what you like most.
