Why Choose Us

Since opening in 2014, our simple philosophy has remained the same… “Help First” At DriveSmart, we apply our “Help First” philosophy to every aspect of our business. “Help First” is what drives us, and it’s led us to being recognized as the # 1 Buy Here Pay Here car dealership in South Carolina.

Our “Help First” philosophy starts with our innovative approach to financing. We approve YOU. Not your credit. Whether you have good credit, bad credit, slow credit, or absolutely no credit at all, our “Help First” approach consistently produces a 99% approval rate year after year. Getting approved is a quick process and can be done at the dealership or from the convenience of your mobile phone if you prefer.

We’ve made the buying process at DriveSmart easy too. Select the vehicles from our inventory that you’re interested in, take a few test drives, and decide which vehicle you like the most. We’ll then use our in-house financing software to create a customized loan package that’s tailored specifically for you and your budget

As a certified Carfax Advantage Dealership, you can feel confident you’re buying a top notch, reliable vehicle at DriveSmart. All our vehicles have passed our rigorous 172-point safety and performance inspections, have been fully serviced, and include a 2,000 mile/60-day limited warranty at no additional cost to you. All these extras are included in DriveSmart’s haggle-free, industry leading, best price.

You’ll like our Fast Path to Ownership Program too. Most dealerships want you to make car payments for 72 to 84 months. That’s 6 to 7 years! With our Fast Path Program, you can pay off your vehicle in half that time. That’s right! At DriveSmart, make on-time payments for approximately 3 years and the title is yours.

Getting you on the road is only half of how we “Help First”. We also go the extra mile to help keep you behind the wheel with our industry best, Onsite Service Center Guarantee. Anytime you have a question about your vehicle, a Service Advisor is available to you to “Help First” during normal, weekday business hours. If your check engine light comes on or you have something one of our certified mechanics need to diagnose, our Service Advisor will help you schedule an appointment at a time that’s convenient for you. Additionally, we’ll help you save big with our Wholesale Pricing Program on all parts and services
