Protect Yourself With CarProof Vehicle History Reports – Cars Used Ontario


If You Aren't Provided with a Vehicle Report Ask Yourself Why?

There are many questions that should be at the forefront of your mind to ask when it comes to buying a pre-owned or use car. One that should ALWAYS be asked is “Can I see the vehicle history reoprt on this car?”

You want to know if the car you are looking at has been involved in any sort of accident or incident and if so the extent of the damage. Dealers are suppose to tell you if there is an accident registered on a vehicle, but if you have ever watched W5 that isn’t always the case.

I have gone out with friends who are looking to buy a car and you would be surprised at the comments we get back when we ask if the car is clean from accidents and if we can see the history report. We got the “yes of course it’s accident free, I don’t have anything on my lot like that.” One dealer so much as said that if we buy the car then he will purchase the vehicle history report for us. What good is that? You want to know ahead of time because this important piece of information provides you with the information you need to make an informed buying decision.

Typically as a used car comes in the Used Car Manager will already have the CarProof already in the vehicle folder, the Dealerships make this common practice. The smaller lots might not necessarily. There is a cost involved for the dealer, but that is the cost of doing business, so do not take any excuse as to why you can’t see it.

If you are buying a car privately, again, protect yourself. Ask if the car is free from any accidents or incidents, but regardless of what they say do your due deligence and check it out.

To check out a car you are buying off someone, get the VIN (vehicle information number), it is usually on the driver’s door on the inside, side panel, or on the driver’s side corner windshield. Write the number down and pull your own CarProof there is a cost to this but hey, a little bit now could save you thousands.
