about us

Starting October 1st, 2022, if you’re buying a used vehicle privately in British Columbia, there’s a new tax rule. It’s based solely on a number called the Average Canadian Black Book Wholesale Value, which is decided only by the car’s Year, Make, and Model.

But here’s the catch: this number doesn’t consider important stuff like how the car looks, how it runs, how many miles it has, its maintenance history, or if it’s been in accidents. These things can seriously affect how much your car is really worth. If your car isn’t in tip-top shape in any of these areas, our team of Licensed Appraisal Experts is all set to do a thorough Professional Vehicle Appraisal.

We believe every used car is special and should be taxed based on its true worth, considering all the important stuff. That’s where our experienced experts at BC Auto Appraisals come in. We are here to give you expert advice and make sure your car transaction goes smoothly and fairly.

Do you need auto Appraisal

Need a Vehicle Appraisal?

Here’s some good news: if your car isn’t in the best shape, it could actually save you money on taxes. Things like too many miles, mechanical issues, needed repairs, body damage, past accidents, and more can all add up to lower your tax bill. How? Through a Professional Vehicle Appraisal done by our licensed experts at BC Auto Appraisals.

When you’re getting a vehicle, our team is right there with you, making sure you keep your hard-earned cash by avoiding extra ICBC Vehicle Tax costs that you don’t need to pay.

And here’s the kicker: if our appraisal says your car is worth less than what ICBC’s Average Canadian Black Book thinks, don’t worry. You’ll only pay taxes based on the higher of the two values – either what we say or the private Purchase Price of your vehicle. It’s a fair deal that helps you save money on taxes.
