why the fu*k should ICBC be charging for this service. If you can do it over the net it should be free. It helps the seller and ICBC. Just another idiot way to make a buck. The way ICBC employees work they should pay us the buck for waiting so long to get answers!

ICBC is out to make money. If it was a non profit organization they wouldn't charge, because they aren't, well you pay. It sucks but nothing is free anymore

The lien search is done in the Personal Property Registry (PPR), a provincial government registry; ICBC governs ownership and insurance records, not liens. The PPR charges search fees, just like most other government registries (like the Land Title Office).

you can also get this freely done at any police station, go ask them to run a VIN of a bike that you are thinking about buying and they'll do it, it'll take about 15 seconds.

Any bike, any part number, anything with a serial number. As I said in the Mspeed thievery thread, all it takes is a quick trip to your local station, tell them that you are thinking about buying parts and want to make sure it's legit, and it'll be done post haste.

There's three different searches here... The free search that Neil posted originally is just for stolen property. The ICBC search is just for accident/claims history. And a Lien search is just for Liens on the property.

All three can be done through www.csrcorp.ca, for motorcycles it costs the same as if you went and did them separately at ICBC, bcliensearch, and the RCMP website.

The easiest way to answer these questions yourself is to check the VIN code, which today can be easily performed via the Internet, using, for example, the Epicvin website. Where can you do free vin check dmv. Very good service
