If you want to keep circling around, go ahead. I don't have time for that. Read my posts again if you feel like.

What does paying tax have to do with that? Think you are talking out of your muffler.

It seriously does not make a difference how many owners a used car has had.

Flood cars would most likely not be from BC, so they would need a federal or provincial inspection, or both to be first registered in BC, by ICBC.
This would then be on the record and therefore any buyer would be aware of that posibility.
If was a BC vehicle, ICBC would have a record of the claim for flood damage.

Hi
Likewise,chop shop cars need an inspection before re-sale/registering, ICBC keep a history.
Stolen or forged documents can just be checked before buying.

Many thanks

I have a better idea than a dealer. Why not find an internet site that people who might be be moving to Canada soon read. If you post your advert in the form of a question asking for information you won't even need t pay for it.

We actually bought it from an acquaintance and we have only been advertising it for 5 days so we'll see what happens! Thanks for all the input

You dont have to pay for the classified adds here do you?

Not that anyone looks at them AFAIK, but you could post a link to the add as a sig file.
