Motor Vehicle Appraisals
Under the new rules, you may obtain an appraisal for the retail value of a motor vehicle if you believe the actual value is less than the average wholesale value because of factors such as excessive wear, significant damage or mechanical defects.
Appraisals may be obtained by the purchaser or seller of the motor vehicle. Appraisals may be completed in person or remotely by a qualified appraiser. The appraiser must complete a Motor Vehicle Appraisal Form (FIN 320) and provide it to you. Present this appraisal to ICBC when you register the motor vehicle or include it with your refund application if you are applying to us for a refund.
