    Is this for insurance purposes? Call an agency and ask what to do. What sort of guidelines for appraisal. Even without an inspection, the importers should have a good idea of what the vehicle is worth. As you know, ICBC simply uses a "book" to determine market value (no inspection). Our western Canadian importers are very knowledgeable and should be able to give a more accurate valuation than ICBC would. ICBC would use a BJ70 as their vehicle to compare and if you own a JDM, you probably don't want that - it wouldn't be worth much unless appraised. I assume that ICBC will want an affidavit type document signed by the "expert appraiser".

    Yes indeed for insurance purposes. Wayne, if you're willing, could you contact me offline regarding this?

    Try giving Mark a call at Automotive Appraisal Services Group. He is a nice guy and I am sure he would be willing to talk to you at length about your truck. Here is a link with the phone number and some information:

    http://automotiveappraisals.com/id8.html

    He knows Land Cruisers really well and does the appraisals for TLC. I had my '82 FJ40 appraised by him after I finished my refurbishing and was happy with the results. He showed me a portfolio of all the Land Cruisers that he has appraised and it covered a wide variety of models from stock to highly modified. He can do the appraisal using photographs that you send. No affiliation other than a happy customer...

    There is a guy in Nanaimo that I will be contacting to appraise the FJ45 diesel.

    Let you know this week if it works out.

    But what will they consider reasonable? The Blue Book value of an 88 Landcruiser must be less than $8000. It would cost me $16000+ to replace this thing.
