Do you offer in-house financing? While we do not have a direct in-house program, our relationship with our partner lenders are beyond what many other dealers would have. As such, we are proud to be able to offer approvals where many other dealers would not be able to.

Fees & taxes F.A.Q.

Do any of your lenders charge pre-payment or early buyout penalties? No. We do not associate with any lender that charges any sort of penalty for extra payments or early payouts.
What fees can be expected when financing or purchasing from Revival Powersports' inventory? We're proud for our full-transparency nature when it comes to selling rides. Here is what you can expect when buying with us ... Cash Deals: • We are proud to be one of very few dealers who will charge ZERO fees on cash deals. The all-in price is our listed cash price plus GST. Financing Deals: • We charge a flat $499 documentation fee. This applies to every customer regardless of credit situation or unit choice. Unlike many other dealers, we NEVER inflate our doc fees to offset sale pricing. • Our lenders charge anywhere from $199 to $999 subject to approval.

Here is what you can expect when financing with us ... • We charge a flat $499 documentation fee. This applies to every customer regardless of credit situation or unit choice. • We charge 10% markup on the cost to buy the unit in from the private seller.

Are there additional fees if I use my loan approval to buy from a different dealership? When using your loan approval with us to buy from another dealership, there may be additional admin fees and taxes charged by that dealer. We based our fees and your loan amount on the full cost (all-in price) of the unit. We suggest negotiating the purchase price if you are concerned with the fees and taxes charged another dealership as they are out of our control.
How does sales tax work when purchasing or financing with Revival Powersports? GST is charged on all purchases through all services we offer. No exceptions. PST may be charged depending on your province. In many cases, this is collected by your registry agent and therefore may not be included in the loan unless requested as such. HST may be charged depending on your province. It may be waived in the event that the unit is delivered outside of Alberta and registered within 7 days. Any amounts can be requested to be added to the loan.
Why do you have to charge GST on the sale? A competitor of yours said they do not have to. Our process differs from our competitors to ensure your safety on the purchase. We act as a middleman and take ownership of the unit in order to grant access to our lending network. This allows us to confirm the sellers identity, search for liens and verify ownership. There have been horror stories from our competitors where they finance units with liens, undisclosed write-offs or rides from scam sellers leaving their customers to deal with the result.
Why is GST charged on a used unit? Wasn't it paid when the unit was bought new? Because our government requires us to charge GST. And yes, it was paid originally as well.
Do you accept customers who are exempt from paying taxes? Absolutely! We will require valid, non-expired proof of exemption and the unit will need to be confirmed that it is delivered to a reservation.

How does the $500 consignment up-front kickback work? On rides accepted into our $500 kickback program, we pay up to $500 of the projected payout up-front once the ride is inspected and given a clean bill of health. While most of the rides we accept are through the $500 kickback program, there are reasons where the kickback may not be offered including: • Service is required and we use the $500 to cover that. • The consignor wants a higher list price that we aren't 100% comfortable with. • The consignor requires delivery. • The unit is highly customised or we are unfamiliar with its market.
I won't be able to bring my ride to you, can Revival Powersports provide pickup options? Yes! We pick up for free in Edmonton or for a fee to bring it in from ourside our area.

Private Seller F.A.Q.

Is Revival Powersports a legitimate business to deal with? Of course we are, but anybody could say that so we will go further in-depth on who are are. Our ownership group has been in the industry for well over a decade. Incorporated in 2019 and registered as 2179513 Alberta Ltd, we originally worked as support for other dealerships for credit challenged customers. In 2021, we broke free from the shadow of other dealers and opened our first motorcycle and powersports dealership with a full brick-and-mortar showroom in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. That is now Revival Powersports.
What documents are required to sell our ride to Revival Powersports? We require to verify three important items - Identity, ownership and payment method. • Identity - As required by our government body, we must obtain a copy of a valid drivers license from anybody who sells to us. • Ownership - We require proof of ownership in the form of current registration, insurance or bill of sale paperwork. It must be in your name as the legitimate seller. • Payment method - The seller must have autodeposit set up in their name or provide a void cheque in which we can process a bank draft deposit. See below for more methods of payment and full breakdowns.
How do we safely pay sellers to purchase their units? All of our payment options are verified through banks. We do not facilitate deals through any other methods. Options are as follows: • Interac Etransfer Autodeposit: The quickest and easiest way to receive and verify funds. Etransfers are non-reversible and autodeposit provides the account holders information so we can confirm identity. Maximum $10,000 over 24 hours. • Direct Deposit of Bank Draft: We can purchase a bank draft from our bank and deposit it into yours. For this method we will require a void cheque or PAD form. Bank drafts are irreversible and act as cash so there should be no holds but hold policies do vary by bank. No limits on daily amounts. • Cash pickup at our showroom: We can order cash to be picked up at our showroom up to $10,000. Depending on the amount this may take 3 to 5 business days. We will only pay the seller direct, you can not have someone else pick up cash. Maximum of $10,000 can be accepted in cash form as per money laundering laws. • Payment via Mail: This is by far the least convenient method and can add days to the transaction. We would mail out a business cheque in your name. With this method we would apply the lien to the unit prior to ensure that you can not sell it from under us. No limits on amounts but can add days and even weeks in some cases. Bank drafts will not be mailed under any circumstance.
Why do you require me to sign a bill of sale prior to sending any funds? All of the leverage is in the hands of you, the seller, while you will maintain control of the unit throughout the process up until you verify funds are received and arrange pickup. Owership documents must be signed and processed prior to payment as the risk is on our end in the transaction. No exceptions.
Once payment is received, what is the process in getting the new owner their bike? Consider us the middle man in this. Once the bike is fully paid for with funds verified, our customer will pick up directly from you. We request that you also provide them with a direct bill of sale to ease registration in certain provinces.
Can I offer financing through Revival Powersports on a unit that I am selling? Absolutely. There is zero cost to the seller to offer our services and it may open up opportunity to sell to a customer requiring a loan. Simply offer them a link to our website to apply.
