BCAA Vehicle Inspection Service

BCAA helps take the risk out of buying or selling a used car, repairing a vehicle or going on a road trip. We offer Members a comprehensive, 143-point visual, instrument and performance inspection.

With a BCAA Vehicle Inspect Service, you’ll receive a confidential report via email, in which our technicians identify vehicle defects and offer unbiased, expert advice.
