The Rebuilt Title Certificate
The Rebuilt Title Certificate can be given to individuals whose car "passes" the roadworthy requirements. This certificate can only be issued once the entire rebuilding file process has been completed. Modern Automotive is one of the few mechanics in the GTA that is considered an MTO (Ministry of Transportation of Ontario) Liscensed Inspection Station. Meaning they are able to successfully process the rebuilt title certificate in order for a vehicle to be deemed driveable.
Our professional team of mechanics have all the tools necessary to help complete the rebuilding file process. Whether its gathering all the information from the car owner, to providing a thorough wheel inspection, as well as ensuring the repaired or replaced parts of the vehicle are clean and free of sealant and of soundproofing rust-materials, at Modern Automotive we are dedicated to providing a seamless rebuilding-process.
We will always do everything in our power to deem your car road-worthy. Our thorough inspections always include going through every point of the rebuilding file process as well as validating each and every aspects.
