Great Clients, Great Announcements

Victoria Premium Automobiles Ltd. is excited to announce that they have expanded to better serve their valued customers. They acquired the former Galaxy Motors lot next door, facing Government street, right across from Three Point Motors. This move allows them better access and a much higher profile on two busy downtown streets. This expansion has allowed them to double their inventory, offering their clients the largest collection and variety of exotic and luxury pre-owned automobiles on Vancouver Island.

Tim and Don would like to extend a special invitation to join them at their Expansion Re-Opening on Thursday, July 28 between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM at their automobile dealership location at 2634 Douglas Street to help celebrate. (View map)
