The House Of Cars group was founded in May of 2012 on the side street of 5329 1A Street SW. A few short months after starting the company, House Of Cars became the go-to place for online shoppers looking for good quality pre-owned vehicles, while being educated and taught about the importance of credit rebuilding.
Originally, House Of Cars was a small, boutique style pre-owned dealership that catered to credit-challenged individuals after the global recession of 2008. Our fundamental goals included educating the public about credit and credit rebuilding, while getting the customer into a newer car with less problems. House Of Cars was built to change the way the “typical industry” was doing business.
By the time October 2012 rolled around, House Of Cars would be a dominant force within the Calgary area and in search of a bigger location. House Of Cars 2 was then formed on Horton Road where we spent nearly two years in this location before moving to Barlow Trail in the city’s NE.
By the time spring of 2013 arrived the company was again out of space and opened the doors to a third location on Macleod Trail, which became a Calgary landmark overnight. With two buildings taking up a city block on the busy street of Macleod Trail, House Of Cars was now employing over 70 staff members. Our fourth location was formed shortly thereafter in September 2015 in Medicine Hat, AB. This was the first House Of Cars location to open up in a city outside of the Calgary area! Shortly thereafter, we opened yet another location right off the Chinook LRT Station.
After exploding into the Calgary car market with four massive vehicle dealerships opening in the short span of three years, we’ve not only changed the industry, we’ve also set a new standard on how the car business should be run. We take pride in each of our teams within our dealerships and all carry one common goal: helping out our customers! Thanks to the training and management at House Of Cars, the end consumer has more knowledge, a better product and a better experience overall – something we value and take pride in!
The culture at House Of Cars is like no other and we will continue to lead the industry in the right direction. We are often imitated but will never be duplicated. Thank you Top Choice awards for voting us your #1 used car dealership three years in a row!
