Why check a vehicle’s history?

There’s a lot that can go wrong with a used car and sometimes the person selling may not be forthcoming about issues. Behind the sleek metal of the body lies the potential for so many unseen problems. From flood damage to odometer rollbacks, major engine rebuilds to accidents, just by looking at the car how can you know?

A vehicle history report from VINsmart can give you that information and so much more. Knowledge about vehicle history isn’t just power, it can mean the difference between safety and harm.

Available on desktop or your mobile device, VINsmart provides comprehensive data from the industry’s most extensive vehicle titling source and value assessment tools. We’ve partnered with the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) to provide the car history check you need to make an informed car purchase for you and your family.

NMVTIS is the only national motor vehicle titling information database in the nation to include data compiled by participating state motor vehicle agencies, insurance carriers, salvage auctions, and auto recyclers. This database allows VINsmart the unique ability to offer our customers a seamless and informative process in the motor vehicle title search.
