Dealer Frequently Asked Questions

Dealer FAQs

What makes VINSmart vehicle history reports different?

Besides providing NMVTIS specific data, VINSmart delivers NADA vehicle valuations. Not only do VINSmart reports protect you from fraud but also provide assistance in the decision making process of determining if this is the car for you and what is an acceptable purchase price. Similarly, the NADA valuations included in each VINSmart report are beneficial to current owners interested in learning how much their vehicle is worth.


What is CA AB1215 that I see referenced?

CA AB1215 is a new law affecting California Dealers as of July 1, 2012. This law requires all licensed car dealers in the state to obtain and disclose vehicle history reports from NMVTIS and requires them to place a “salvage” warning sticker on vehicles with a junk, salvage or title-brand.

Does VINSmart offer a mobile application?

Yes, mobile applications are available for the iPod and iPad. Just click below or go to the Apple Store and select VINSmart PRO. You will be able to scan or talk the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) to save time.

How can I apply for a refund?

If for any reason, a report we deliver does not have information from the NMVTIS database, we will gladly issue a credit towards your next vehicle history report, or refund your money, minus a $2 processing fee, no questions asked. PLEASE NOTE: Canadian VINs, and chassis/incomplete vans or trucks will NOT be valued.
