Vehicles from flooded and other areas of devastion throughout our country are now showing up locally for sale. Many dealers in our area do provide a VIN search on vehicles you may be considering for purchase. If they do not offer one, you may want to ask for a copy of the report to review. If you are purchasing a vehicle from a smaller dealership or a private party, you may want to obtain a VIN report before you purchase. We want to provide you with an inexpensive way to review the reported information before you finalize the purchase.

You may not have ever heard of instaVIN before today. Their information is based on the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS). The NMVTIS owes its existence to the Federal Anti-Car Theft Act of 1992, which was set up to protect the public from fraudulent used car sales as well as from vehicles deemed to be unsafe. The NMVTIS database is handled by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), and is regulated by the US Department of Justice. The NMVTIS is the only vehicle history database where all states, insurance carriers, and junk salvage yards enter their data, which they are required to do by law.
