instaVINâ ¢ (www.instavin.com) the pioneer of the first SMS mobile Accident History Report service,
announced the launch of full Vehicle History Reports available online for only $6.99. This break through
price is a fraction of the cost of competitive reports that range from $29.99 for an AutoCheckÂ® report to
$34.99 for a CARFAXÂ® report. Through its partnership with the National Motor Vehicle Title Information
System (NMVTIS), instaVIN reports will include the most comprehensive recent Junk/Salvage/Total Loss
data in the vehicle history services industry. NMVTIS is the only vehicle history database that all states,
insurance carriers, and junk salvage yards are required to report their data into, by federal law.
"Through our partnership with NMVTIS, we're proud to bring dealers and consumers the best Title and Brand
data in the industry," said Jim Irish, CEO of MobileTrac, LLC provider of instaVIN data services. "Neither
CARFAX nor AutoCheck report NMVTIS data, giving instaVIN a huge competitive advantage in providing
the most comprehensive real-time title data at a game-changing price point. Consumers are now empowered
to run their own reports at an affordable price."
In addition to NMVTIS data, instaVIN Full Vehicle History Reports provide accident data through multiple
sources including state DMV, police records, fire, insurance records and other proprietary sources. Unlike
competitors, instaVIN draws each inquiry in real-time from source databases, minimizing the chances of
acquiring a vehicle with a problem not yet recorded. instaVIN sets a new standard in reliable, timely,
affordable Vehicle History Reports.
InstaVIN Real-Time Vehicle History Reports will include:
• Vehicle Specifications and 24 VIN decode data points
• Accident History including city, state and date of incident
• Junk/Salvage/Total Loss--comprehensive data with contact information
• Ownership history
• Title and Brand data including 61 unique Brand indicators (potential problems)
• Odometer problem indicators
• Cash for Clunkers (CARS.gov)
• Real-time Vehicle Valuations indicating the average local retail asking price
• Base MSRP invoice cost
In the world of used car buying, vehicle history disclosure is an essential key to transparency and customer
satisfaction in a used-car purchase with instaVIN offering the most competitive title and brand vehicle history
in the industry.
Through the Federal Anti-Car Theft Act of 1992, NMVTIS was created to help protect consumers from fraud
and unsafe vehicles and to keep stolen vehicles from being resold. The NMVTIS database is administered by
the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the U.S. Department of Justice.
AAMVA is a nonprofit educational association representing U.S. and Canadian officials responsible for the
administration and enforcement of motor vehicle laws.
Understanding a vehicle's history is a critical step in any used car purchase whether you are a dealer at auction
or a consumer buying a used vehicle in a private party sale or with a dealer. NMVTIS helps state and law
enforcement in deterring and preventing title fraud and other crimes by allowing state titling agencies to
further verify the validity of ownership documents before issuing new titles especially when the vehicle
travels from state to state. NMVTIS data also includes descriptive labels called "brands" which identity a
vehicle's current or prior condition such as "salvage" or "flood" which convey additional information
concerning the value of the vehicle, and help protect consumers from unknowingly buying a damaged vehicle.
