so what happens if i see a truck i really want but its in the icbc salvage yard?

i know that you need a special license from a body shop or something to buy anything from there, so does anyone know who can buy icbc salvage cars?

or better yet does anyone HAVE that license that I can do some business with?

theres a truck sitting in there right now that's just a shame its not being driven by ME :cool:

Also depends on whether or not icbc has designated it 'D.O.' or dismantle only. If it is, they will not relicense that vin. That happens quite a bit with cars that "appear" to be almost perfect, but are stolen/recoveries, or electrical fires. If it has rebuild status and is a popular vehicle(ie easy resell) the rebuilders will pay quite a bit for it. A lot of the newer Dodge pickups go this route. If a wrecker buys a vehicle, it automatically becomes 'D.O.' and the vin is toast. You would need to talk to a shop with a rebuilder license. If you want to go this way, be careful. There are a h3ll of a lot of crooks in the business.

Before you do anything you have to go into the yard to see if it has rebuild status and if its even for sale... i used to work at the ralphs japanese wrecking yard on scott road and they will turn around a rebuilder that they bought for say 200 and sell it to the general public for 1200.... soo watch out and make sure its worth it.. i bought a rebuilder when i was working for them and now its been sitting in my garage for 6 months and im at the point where i think im gonna count my losses and throw it out.. soo be carefull
