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.

“Help First” 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, we Help First. Our approval process is simple and can be done from the convenience of your mobile phone if you prefer. Appy anytime from anywhere and get approved in 5 minutes or less.

As soon as we get you approved and behind the wheel, our Fast Path to Ownership Program will help put you on the road to success. Customers who use our Fast Path program average just 36 monthly payments. That’s right. Make on-time payments for approximately 3 years and the title is yours. Other dealerships will push you to make payments for 72 months or more. At DriveSmart, you’ll own it in half that time!
