Vehicle History Reports
A vehicle history report (VHR), also referred to as a VIN check, used car report, or car history report, is a detailed document that provides vehicle information about the history of a particular car, boat, truck or RV. In order to obtain a VHR to verify a car's history, you'll need to know your vehicle identification number (VIN).
A car report or a VIN checker can reveal any other strikes against a vehicle that might make you think twice about signing on the dotted line, such as:
- past ownership.
- any liens held on the vehicle.
- vehicle maintenance.
- title history blemishes.
- faulty odometer settings.
- flood damage.
- accident history.
- car title check.
- whether a vehicle was determined to be a lemon.
In order to get your car info by checking VIN numbers, you will need to verify the VIN; this is also referred to as a VIN lookup or VIN number lookup. If you don't know your VIN, the diagram below shows you where to locate it.
Vehicle history reports can make purchasing a car less of a gamble. Why roll the dice when you can actually know exactly what you are buying by doing research on a VIN number? Obtaining a report is as simple as verifying the VIN number and hopping on a computer.
Whether you're a private seller or a dealer, a vehicle history report can help you sell a vehicle. If the VHR is free of questionable content, what better way to gain the buyer's confidence? Also, if there happens to be suspicious-looking information on the report, you can find out what it's all about and ease any concerns a customer might have.
There are many companies that offer what they call a free car history report or a free VIN check/ vehicle history report where they search by using VIN search engine, but the information you receive is limited to basic things such as recalls and customer complaints. If you want a vehicle's accident or lien history or a stolen vehicle check, you'll have to pay for that information.
