CARCO announced the release of a new version of its Check That VIN (Motor Vehicle Title History Report) product. In addition to the standard “Year, Make and Model” that had been offered, CheckThatVIN reports will now include full vehicle description (when available) based on the particular Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for NIADA members.

“Adding the additional VIN decoding to our standard offering provides additional value to our CheckThatVIN product,” stated Rob Winthrop, Product Manager at CARCO. “NIADA members can now see additional vehicle details along with the VIN title history information which will better enable them to present the features of the vehicle and close the sale.”

An additional new feature is the addition of the prepay option wherein a dealer can load the account with as little as ten dollars and run reports on a debit system. The system alerts when it is time to reload.

“NIADA’s longtime member benefit partner CARCO Group continues to invest in very innovative, high value solutions for our member auto dealers. This latest update to the CheckThatVin vehicle history risk mitigation tool, is another example of that commitment. We highly encourage our member dealers to embrace this invaluable vehicle history reporting tool, that eliminates their exposure to vehicles with major condition issues at an extremely affordable investment,” says Scott Lilja, SVP Member Services NIADA.

The reports will also include the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) data for each report. NMVTIS was designed to protect prospective buyers and sellers of used cars and trucks from concealed vehicle histories. Created by federal law, this system is the only publicly available system in the country that requires all insurance carriers, auto recyclers, junk and salvage yards, and states to report vehicle history information. NMVTIS data is required in the state of California to comply with AB1215.

Reports typically include title “Brand” information that may uncover a previously-unknown “Salvage” or “Flood” vehicle. This information may not normally be found in a standard vehicle history report. It has been estimated that there are more than 250,000 Sandy-related “Flood” vehicles on the market.

CheckThatVIN is available at https://niada.checkthatvin.com/niada/welcome.html in PDF or HTML formats.
