Vehicle History Reports

Vehicle history reports, also known as VIN checks list any major vehicle issues like if one is stolen, or afflicted by flood and fire damage. Get a VIN check before you buy a used vehicle - especially if you buy outside of new york.

For making sure that the vehicle you want to purchase is free of defects, vehicle history reports or VIN checks are used. These detailed accounts show all previously encountered issues plaguing a car, to help you avoid investing in a hazardous, vandalized car not worth the trouble. By covering bases for over 30 different problems, vehicle history reports can save you from hidden hazards such as flood and fire damage, as well as from problems concerning past history of a vehicle.

Specifically, reports are made to help:

  • Save Cash: Problems highlighted by the report let you get a better offer from the dealer, for less.
  • Make a Better Purchase: Vehicle history reports let you keep clear from cars that might otherwise be afflicted with a critical problem like flood damage, collision damage, or other issues like an odometer rollback.
  • Get the Best Selling Price: By comparing cars using their VIN check (with metrics like an AutoCheck Score) you can get the bargaining abilities you need to get the car you want at a better offer.
