When buying a used car, it is best to check its VIN-code, by which you can find out all the information about the car: from the release date to detailed information about its repair in service centers. Not all information is available for free, but basic data can be found in seconds.
On the Internet, you can find a large number of online services that offer to "punch" a car by VIN-code. To check a car from North America, you can refer to both English-language sites www.carfax.com and www.autocheck.com, and Russian-language counterparts using original databases for verification: www.vin.su, www.vinfax.ru, etc. For information on vehicles manufactured in other parts of the world, use the websites www.in-drive.ru, https://www.vinformer.su and others
As a rule, you can check a car for theft for free and get the following information: make and model, year and country of manufacture, body and engine type. By paying a small amount (from 90 rubles), you can get information about the configuration, mileage, participation in an accident and other important information. In addition, it should be borne in mind that detailed and comprehensive information is not available for all car models.
You can also check a car by VIN using SMS. Vinformer.su service offers to get all the information about the car by sending an SMS with a code word. Full information about the service and its cost can be found on the website www.vinformer.su.
