Mechanic Mondays! - AMVIC
I’m sure that you have heard multiple horror stories about having vehicles repaired or how mechanics are trying to take advantage of you. Well good news, in Alberta we have a government entity called Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council (AMVIC). All sales and repair facilities within the province of Alberta are required by law to be registered with AMVIC. If there are any discrepancies with billing of repairs done, repairs causing damage or sales of vehicles, AMVIC if contacted, will open an investigation into the situation. For example, in Alberta, a repair shop’s bill can not increase by more than $100 without the consent of the owner of the vehicle.
