Vancouver v Seattle? 2-Dec-2011 At 5:51:45 AM timfreddo
I bought a car in Vancouver about a month ago...
Was pretty cruisey, but if you buy a car in Van, it needs to have a current "Aircared" certificate (makes sure cars dont put out really bad emmisions in big city), as long as it has that you can register it under your name.
From there, if you go up to squamish etc, it only matters if your aircare runs out if you are planning on selling your car in Van again... its sweet to sell it anywhere else in BC without Aircare cert.

To register your car in BC, you and the seller go into an insurance brokers office (they're everyhere) and sign one or two peices of paper, and then pay for as much 3rd party/property insurance as you want. we paid $1900 for 6 months in vancouver (but we are under 25), and then when we moved to the rockies we got $250 back, as theres less chance of a crash here, and If you bring a letter from your insurer in australia ( - scroll down to insurance discounts), you can get 5% off for each year of no claims in australia...

Check out, its the canadian trading post, u might be able to find a car that you like the look of in Squamish area, and cath a greyhound bus up there...
There are cars for sale everywhere over here. I'm in revelstoke, pop 8000, and have seen about 15 cars for sale in the last month.

The point about not wasting the US visa makes sense...
