7 Things About Car Subscriptions
by Canvas • February 8, 2019


Car Subscriptions May Cause These Side Effects

Life comes at you fast; car subscriptions can slow things down so you can enjoy the ride. Less stress and more flexibility is always a good thing. Canvas is built from the ground up with an innovative business model that makes it easier and less stressful for you to get a car. We’re here to help you!

Here are seven great side effects of having a car subscription:

1. No More Buyer’s Remorse

If you’ve had a sinking feeling set in shortly after making a big purchase, you’re not alone. With a flexible and short-term commitment, you won’t be haunted by the nagging question of “did I choose the right car?” Canvas offers subscription service periods as short as one month, helping you avoid that feeling of dread. Vehicle purchases are one of the largest financial transactions that you’ll make in a lifetime; car subscriptions allow you to postpone that transaction until you’re good and ready.

2. Avoid Insurance Hassles

Shopping for car insurance can be one of life’s least pleasant experiences. With a Canvas car subscription, there’s no need to put yourself through that. Everything, including insurance, is covered in the monthly fee. The standard Canvas insurance coverage package includes bodily injury liability, property damage liability, personal injury protection (PIP), medical payments, collision, and comprehensive coverage (with a $500 deductible), along with uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Canvas also covers towing and rental reimbursement.

3. Try Before You Buy

Do you dream about dropping the top on your convertible and taking the long way home on a gorgeous day, but fear a long-term commitment? The Canvas subscription service is the perfect way to scratch that itch. Live with a Mustang convertible for a month or two, and you’ll know if you’re ready to make the leap.

If you can’t make up your mind about what type of vehicle to drive, Canvas allows you to quickly and easily explore all the possibilities. Does your lifestyle require an SUV, or would you rather have a sedan or a hatchback? Do you hanker for a spacious American luxury sedan? We’ve got it all covered.

4. Family Flexibility

Family headed into town for an extended visit? Fear not! Canvas delivers infinite flexibility so you can choose exactly what you need to drive each month. While a thrifty compact or hybrid saves a nice chunk of cash on your day-to-day commute, there’s nothing better than a big, comfy SUV for family road trips! With three spacious rows, the Ford Flex and Ford Explorer have plenty of room to stretch out. The hugely popular Explorer rides high like a conventional SUV. The Flex, by comparison, sits lower to the ground and is more similar to a traditional station wagon. The interior feels like a private jet. Responsive EcoBoost engines and Sync multimedia systems make both a joy to drive.

You’ll want to choose all-wheel-drive (AWD) if you’re headed into snowy terrain. The Ford Edge, Ford Escape, and Lincoln MKX are great choices for smaller families. And if you’re keen on a luxurious sedan, the top-of-the-line Lincoln Continental is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face. The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid delivers a splendid combination of efficiency and creature comforts.

Whether you’re accommodating family visits and vacations, dealing with the seasonal demands of youth sports, or heading to the mountains for a snowboard trip, we’ve got it covered.

5. D-I-Y Mom or Dad?

Owning a home is the do-it-yourselfer’s dream, but it comes with complications. Having a pickup truck in the family makes home improvement so much easier. Whether you’re remodeling a bathroom, finishing the basement, refinishing the deck, or building a backyard shed, you’ll appreciate the extra space of a truck can provide.

Some home improvements can stretch out over the course of months. It can get very expensive, very quickly to rent a pickup for the duration of your project. Canvas makes life easier when you’re working on projects around the house. Swap into a mighty SuperCrew Ford F-150 for a month or two, and you’ll have all the versatility you need to haul the lumber–and the family. Consider us your no-strings buddy with a pickup truck.

6. Simple to Budget with Fixed Costs

The process of planning a monthly budget should include a rainy day fund to cover those inevitable expenses that take you by surprise. The Canvas subscription service is all-inclusive, like a high-end resort. One simple payment eases the process of budgeting. Subscription lengths run from one month to 12 months or more. The monthly fee drops rapidly as the subscription length increases.

Are you looking to save at the gas pump every week? Choose a fuel-efficient Fiesta, Focus, Fusion Hybrid sedan or C-Max five-door hatchback.

7. Peace of Mind

Owning a vehicle can get complicated. If you’ve ever bought a car at a traditional dealership, you know the typical hassles and the time that it takes to complete the transaction. Canvas avoids those headaches and saves your valuable time. The monthly subscription service fees cover everything except for gasoline. There’s no need to run around tying up loose ends. Just pick out your vehicle, choose your timeframe, and boom, it’s all done without leaving the comfort of your home.

Welcome to a whole new world. No doubt about it, Canvas is a huge stress reliever. With many vehicles available for quick home delivery, you’ll be amazed at how easy a Canvas subscription can be!
