Many people access the Personal Property Registry without having an ACOL client account. These people are typically either infrequent users -- such as someone performing only one or a few registrations or searches -- or they are regular users who have chosen to use one of the following alternatives:
- Lien Check Service -- Anyone with an Internet connection and a valid credit card can use the Lien Check Service to search for serial numbered goods, such as a motor vehicle, trailer, mobile home, boat, plane or outboard motor.
- Value-added Service Provider -- If you do not wish to set up an ACOL account, there are also value-added service providers who are available to perform registrations and searches for you. Value-added service providers may also offer additional assistance in order to help you register or search correctly.
- Government Registry Office -- In Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, you are able to access PPRS at designated government registry offices. These are services for walk-in customers only -- no mail or electronic requests are accepted. Click on the province or territory link for more information on locations and operating hours.
