An Information Brokers car report is a vital tool to ensure any used car you are planning to buy – especially via a private sale – is safe and legitimate. A car with structural damage or finance owing could cost you much more in the long-term.
A report uncovers any potentially withheld information that could compromise the car's value and safety. For a small fee, a vehicle report allows you to compare the information a seller is providing with the official information provided by government databases.
All our vehicle reports are Mobile-Friendly meaning they are designed to be used on site. Our quick turn around means you can have peace of mind and make an informed decision on the spot.
Who Is It For?
A vehicle report is a must have document for everybody buying a second-hand car, to ensure the vehicle they are interested in purchasing is safe, worth the sale price and not a lemon.
What Do You Get?
The information contained within a vehicle report includes:
General Specifications: make and model, year of manufacture, colour, body type.
Vehicle Investigations: registration status (current, suspended, expired, cancelled), estimated valuation, Green Star and ANCAP/Safety rating, expected mileage to determine potential odometer rollback.
Vehicle History: any finances owing (e.g debt, leases), written-off status (e.g a repairable write-off), stolen status and flood damage.
The Application Process
To process the order, you must enter a serial number – such as the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), Chassis number or Manufacturer number, which are located on the car and should be provided by the seller (it's a good idea to view the VIN number with your own eyes as a VIN not viewed will not cover you) – followed by make and model. If the VIN provided is false, you will receive a report for a different vehicle, or the order will fail to process.
A car report will take an hour to process during business hours.
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or a Chassis Number are both used to identify a car.
is always made up of 17 unique characters (e.g 1HGCM82633A004352). Each digit is representative of make and model, year of manufacture, country, production number etc.
does not contain the letter "o" – to avoid confusion, a number zero “0” appears in a VIN
does not contain the letter "i" – to avoid confusion, the number one “1” appears in a VIN
does not contain the letter "Q"
A Chassis Number:
does not have a specified length
may not be a unique number
Depending on state it was issued in or the vehicle design, VIN numbers can be found on metallic plates bolted to a chassis or frame, stamped into the chassis or firewall, etched onto the bottom corner of the front windscreen, or contained on the vehicle's compliance plate or registration sticker.
If you cannot locate a VIN or chassis number, the car's owner should reveal it for you (as provided in the car's manual). A mechanic may also help you, along with the car's manufacturer.
