about us

Starting from October 1st, 2022, individuals in British Columbia who privately purchase Pre-Owned Vehicles are required to pay Transfer Tax based solely on the Average Canadian Black Book Wholesale Value, which is determined solely by Year, Make, and Model.

This valuation process overlooks crucial factors such as the physical condition, mechanical state, mileage, maintenance history, accidents, and other variables that significantly influence your vehicle’s actual worth. If your vehicle rates below average in any of these aspects, our team of Licensed Appraisal Experts is ready to offer a comprehensive Professional Vehicle Appraisal.

We firmly believe that each used vehicle possesses its own unique qualities, and we advocate for a tax assessment that reflects its true value, accounting for all relevant factors. Our seasoned experts at BC Auto Appraisals are here to provide expert guidance, ensuring a seamless and fair transaction process for you.

Submit Required Vehicle Information

A representative will request all essential information and available records to accurately evaluate your vehicle remotely or in person. This will include photos and video for remote appraisals, which will assist in determining the vehicle's True Value.

Licensed Appraisal

A Licensed Appraisal Expert will thoroughly inspect and review all submitted evidence and documentation. A FIN-320 Appraisal Form will be completed by our Licensed Agents as required by ICBC.

Receive Your Report

Once finalized, you will receive the completed FIN-320 Appraisal Form to submit to your Local Insurance Broker or Government Agency.

Your vehicle’s subpar condition could make you eligible for tax savings. Issues like excessive mileage, mechanical problems, maintenance requirements, body damage, accident history, and more can reduce your tax burden when evaluated through a Professional Vehicle Appraisal. Our licensed experts at BC Auto Appraisals will support you throughout your vehicle acquisition, safeguarding your hard-earned money by preventing unnecessary ICBC Vehicle Tax expenditures.

Should BC Auto Appraisals’ assessed value be lower than ICBC’s Average Canadian Black Book appraisal, you will only be taxed based on the higher of the two values: BC Auto Appraisals’ assessment or the private Purchase Price of your vehicle.
