Crime involving motor vehicles is a costly problem, and represents substantial profits for those succeeding in insurance fraud. Because of these profits and the potential for sizable fraudulent claims, many insurance companies require an insurance inspection before issuing an insurance policy on a new or pre-owned vehicle. Insurance inspections mandated by some insurance companies have proven to be a good tool and can help auto insurance companies control their costs and maintain competitive rates. Typically, insurance inspections become mandatory when an insurance company receives a request for coverage for a newly purchased vehicle or when a vehicle changes carriers. The driver seeking to be insured may be provided with a time frame for having the vehicle inspected, as well as a list of authorized insurance inspection facilities. Insurance inspections are designed to assess the physical condition of the vehicle and to prove that the vehicle actually exists.
Vehicle insurance inspections typically involve the gathering of visual documentation to help prove that a vehicle is real along with the physical state of the vehicle. The general physical condition of the vehicle may also be noted with these photos. A photo is also taken of the vehicle identification number (VIN) that, depending on the vehicle, may be located a variety of locations. The options and accessories of the vehicle are also inspected and noted. This is most helpful when an insurance claim is submitted to repair a particular component of a vehicle. The insurance company can refer to the insurance inspection and verify that the vehicle was equipped with the particular component at the time the claim was filed. Another part of insurance inspections includes a reading of the mileage on a vehicle’s odometer. The make, model, and year of the vehicle are also noted during an insurance inspection. These inspections can be conducted in a variety of ways, but the essential inspection components are the same.

What’s the difference between Repairs and Maintenance?
Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.
Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.
The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner's manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.
All BIG O Tire dealers in BC pride themselves on being able to provide the best customer service and the highest quality service work available anywhere. To support that, a service warranty on workmanship, service and/or parts is provided by each independent BIG O Tires dealership. These warranties vary from one aspect of our business to another - Tire warranties are different from Wheel warranties, and each of these differ from warranties on Service work performed during the course of a repair or maintenance on your vehicle. Ask your BIG O dealer at the time of purchase of these products and/or services what the warranty period is and what is covered under it.
