Where to get inspection done...? Advice needed

Hey all,

just returning to BC from Ontario. My vehicle was originally from BC and I took it to Ontario and registered it there.

I am now returning and need to get an inspection done (ICBC form MV-3199). Does anyone have any good and affordable experiences getting one of these done or similar inspections? I'm located in Eagle Ridge area in Coquitlam and it is for a 1995 truck.

Much appreciated! Ideal spot would be cheap, fast, hassle free and open until 10pm on sundays

Perhaps crappy tire? I'd guess they'd be on the cheaper side.

This is my own personal experience only, so take it with a grain of salt.

My experience with places that offer cheap, fast, and hassle free, always end up being a hassle because they will nit pick the littlest of things and fail you on the inspection.

You want to find a place that will offer a free re-inspection without having to do the repairs through them. Canadian Tire is one of these places, but always check with the service adviser first. I suppose it really boils down to what you value more - the bottom line of a cheap/fast inspection, or your time/opportunity cost.

I can't recommend of any shops out your way so hopefully someone can chime in.
