How does a VIN check work?
As part of your VIN check, will search your VIN for all associated records available across the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System, which maintains a network of vehicle history data from a wide variety of providers. In fact, all states, insurance companies, and junk and salvage yards are required by federal law to regularly report information to NMVTIS. This enables you to access up-to-date, comprehensive data associated with your vehicle.

Why should I run a VIN check?
Most people run a VIN check to:
  • Understand a vehicle’s history
  • Check for potential title problems
  • Make an informed assessment of a vehicle’s value
As a vehicle buyer, you can reduce your risk of being defrauded, either intentionally or unintentionally, by getting all available information on the vehicle history before purchasing. As a vehicle seller, you can help increase confidence for potential buyers by proving that your car has a clean history (or be upfront about defects if any are found).
