It’s possible to see an indication of Total Loss without the vehicle being branded. If a certain threshold is met (set by the insurance company), the Total Loss trigger is set.

If your report indicates “possible total loss,” review the “Canadian Registration Section” to confirm the branding of the vehicle.

If "Title/Registered to an insurance company" is included with the record, the vehicle was deemed a total loss by the insurance company and ownership of the vehicle was transferred to that company.
