Buying a used car can be a frightening prospect, but thanks to West Coast Ford Lincoln and CarProof, you have less to worry about. CarProof gives you peace of mind, enabling you to feel like you "know" the vehicle you're purchasing so you can make an informed decision. The introduction of Car Proof badges also aid in this decision. CarProof badges make it easy for shoppers to see what great qualities a pre-owned vehicle has. To use the Carproof Report to your full advantage, you need to know what it's all about.

The CarProof Report

The CarProof Vehicle History Report tells you several things you'll want to know about the vehicle you're considering purchasing. This data includes the following:

  • Any prior accidents or insurance claims - it tells type of incident and the amount of the damage
  • Lien data - lists any current liens for the vehicle, only service for cross-Canada lien information
  • Registration - tells which provinces the vehicle has been registered in and if it has any negative branding
  • US history - provides information of any prior US history


Data is presented in real-time, which means it's current and up to date. Information is gleaned from the government, both private and public insurance agencies and other companies.

Why CarProof?

CarProof has access to more information to create the most comprehensive report for the history of your vehicle. It provides you with added confidence not only in the vehicle you want to purchase, but the dealership you are working with. The CarProof report is trusted around Canada by consumers, lenders, manufacturers, insurance companies and other professionals in the automotive industry.

If a vehicle has an accident history, you will be aware should you decide to purchase it. You'll have in-depth information about the incident and be able to verify for yourself if the damage was repaired. If you do decide to continue with the purchase, you'll have a better idea of the value of the vehicle, so you don't end up paying more than what it's worth.

According to the CarProof website, 37% of vehicles have a lien against them. When you read the CarProof Vehicle History Report, you can find out before you make the purchase and avoid getting stuck with someone else's loan.

 

CarProof Badges

CarProof has made badges available to dealerships, which they may display on their listings to give consumers added confidence in the vehicles they have for sale. These badges allow buyers to identify at a glance a car, SUV or truck that is:

  • Accident Free
  • Has Low Kilometers
  • Has Had Only One owner
  • Comes In Top Condition
  •  

As you scroll down the listings looking for your next new pre-owned vehicle, you can select one which includes those badges.
