Finding insurance company or owner of salvaged truck/Registering Salvage in Ontario

Guy first off I apoligize for the long title, and if this is in the wrong area.

I need some help with a vehicle I bought, it is a Salvaged truck from virginia. I am importing it into Ontario canada and want to register it. The law here is you have to have a structual Inspection, and a requirement is that I need the Insurance Estimate from the original company. The company I bought the truck from cannot get this info.

I know alot of people are against Salvage, but Ive done my research and am set on this donor vehicle for my project.

Anyways Id appreciate any feedback, because I have exhausted all my options. Thanks to everyone for any help. Fernando

Who is to know who the original company is?

Maybe you can use "carfacts" (or is it carfax?) to get documentation on prior owners and ask them VERY NICELY if you can get a copy of their insurance estimates for the original damage, after explaining your situation with enough detail to assure them that you are not some identity theft con man.

Otherwise, I imagine that you cn use the existing info you have to get the documentation you need from a claims adjuster and the gov't will probably be just as satisfied.

I would contact Virginia DMV and see what insurance company was listed as the owner on title when it was declared Salvage. Contact information is on the Virginia DMV website .

BTW, Carfax never lists the previous owners on their reports... it's a privacy thing.

Yes carfax was a WAG.

Thank you for clarifying it.

I suspect that Virginal DMV has a website.

Maybe you can get lucky and get the info.

Here in Michigan the info is supposed to be removed from the system once the vehicle is reported as salvage.

I do not know if it really is or not.

I have owned many vehicles long enough as to where they are no longer on file with Secretary or State (DMV).
