If you are in the market for a used car it can be an exciting time. You can get all caught up in those shiny new rims and blue tooth that allows you to stream music from you phone and also handless talking on your phone. The car smells good, the paint is nice and shinny and the windows and interior are clean. But what do you really know about that car? Has the odometer been tampered with? Has the odometer been rolled back 10, 20, or even 50 thousand miles? Maybe that bright shiny car is a flood car, it may have been in Katrina or some other major flood and been flooded to the floor boards or maybe even completely submerged under water. Or, maybe that car was in a really bad accident. Some hack shops will take 2 cars and make them into 1! Maybe it wasn’t that badly damaged, but how do you know that the vehicle was even repaired properly. Wouldn’t you rather just stay away from buying that car and moving on to another one that hasn’t been in an accident at all?
So the most logical thing to do is pull a Carfax or vin number check. But Carfax charges $34.95 for a used Vehicle History Report. We have found another source that pulls and gives all the same information and gets the same information that carfax does for 1/3 the price! So for roughly Ten dollars you can get all the same information that carfax gives and get some piece of mind about that shiny new vehicle you are thinking about buying. Some of the information you will get is –
Checks for over 60 different types of title brands.
Verification across over 40 million junk, salvage, and total loss records.
Related accidents reported by state DMVs and other sources.
Record of odometer recordings for catching rollbacks and tampering.
Historical title registrations and detailed vehicle specifications.
