Salvage Inspection Process
When a vehicle is involved in a serious collision or is stolen, an insurance company often ‘writes the vehicle off’. In other words, the insurance company decides that the cost of repairing the vehicle is more than the vehicle is worth. In the case of stolen vehicles, often the vehicle is not recovered before the insurance company writes the vehicle off. The insurance company then declares the vehicle ‘salvage’ and contacts Alberta Transportation to request that the Alberta Registry Database affix a ‘salvage’ status to the vehicle’s VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). This ‘Salvage’ label is permanent. From this point on, if anybody tries to register the vehicle, the registry will require a salvage inspection. This is a government-issued certificate that is granted once the vehicle has passed a salvage inspection at one of the licensed salvage inspection stations in Alberta. Once the inspection is completed and the vehicle has passed the inspection a new certificate is generated and now the vehicle status is change to 'Rebuilt'
