Removing your Purchase from the Compound

After payment, you must remove your purchase from the Winnipeg Compound.

Write-offs can't be registered or driven without the appropriate general safety (COI) and structural integrity inspections (BIIC). No exceptions!

Using a professional towing service to remove a vehicle is best. But if you'll be towing the vehicle yourself, you must comply with The Highway Traffic Act and The Drivers and Vehicles Act rules about towing.
