Solution Financial has been providing luxury vehicle leasing and sourcing services throughout Greater Vancouver since 2004. In 2017 we decided to expand our offerings and added luxury speed boats and yachts to the mix.

Automotive leasing was once in demand as tax deduction purposes for fleet and corporations. Over the years, it became readily available to consumers and individuals. We can proudly say that we have contributed to this change and after years of professional commitment in the automotive industry, we have found the best Solution.

Solution Financial's tailor-made leasing system has been designed and built by our experienced team of industry professionals. With a flexible range of leasing and financing options and an in-depth knowledge of the luxury leasing marketplace, we provide a unique leasing experience for our customers and our business partners.
At the end of the day, our dedicated team will ensure we do everything to get you behind the wheel of the car of your dreams.
