AutoCheck is Experian's leading vehicle history reporting service and an indispensable part of the used car shopping process from United States. AutoCheck reports include the industry's first and only vehicle history score, empowering consumers with the confidence and information they need to more easily and quickly understand what a vehicle history report really says about a specific used vehicle's history.
AutoCheck receives their information from dozens of thousands of trusted sources including Communication Offices in USA and Canada (NMVTIS information system), insurance companies, police departments, fire brigades, vehicle inspection stations, auto auctions and many other.
The AutoCheck database is one of the most complete system of vehicle background information. It contains over 4 billions records for over half a billion of vehicles. Each of the AutoCheck vehicle background reports contains vital information regarding mileages, previous registrations, vehicle destination, granted titles, communication damage. AutoCheck reports may sometimes not include all the information regarding the vehicle's background (servicing in non-authorized service points), but certainly are the most trustworthy source of data in America at the moment. The information based on the indicated VIN number (VIN USA) is reported to the AutoCheck.
Before you buy a vehicle brought from USA and Canada, we advise purchasing the Autocheck report, which will certainly help to learn aboutthe past of the chosen vehicle. Check also the access to the additional information about the vehicle and photos in autoDNA database.
