is carfax like kleenex ???

KIRKLAND, WA,/24-7PressRelease/ — For decades, one company has dominated the vehicle history market: CARFAX. With few alternatives available for vehicle history reports, CARFAX gets away with charging as much as $34.99 for a single vehicle history report.

“I just needed to prove that a car I was selling had a clean history, so I scoured the web for a ‘free vehicle history report'”, explains David Wu, “Unfortunately, there was no such thing as free vehicle history, and I felt ripped off when I resorted to paying $30 for a basic report.” After this experience, Wu went on to found VinAudit.com– a vehicle history reporting service offering a radically lower-cost alternative to CARFAX.

Since VinAudit.com’s initial release in early 2012, the service has served thousands of consumers over the Internet in addition to having with a rapidly growing presence in the automotive industry. VinAudit.com and partners of VinAudit.com served as one of the main alternatives to CARFAX providing an approved compliance solution with this new requirement that took effect on July 1st, 2012.

Assembly Bill 1215 required California car dealers to properly disclose vehicle history information before their customers purchase a car. Seeking a low-cost compliance solution, over 500 used car dealers in California have chosen VinAudit.com as their exclusive source for vehicle history reports.

“We’re just getting started,” Wu says optimistically, “One day, vehicle history may even become free.”

VinAudit.com is an approved provider and partner of NMVTIS, a US federal database wherein state DMVs, insurance carriers, junk and salvage sites with other record providers are mandated to report to. The company provides instant Vehicle History Reports that is sent to your email, can be downloaded as PDF file and can be printed. Moreover, they also offer Dealers Program and Resellers Program to the Automotive Industry with great benefits and simple set up. VinAudit.com’s mission is to make Vehicle History for free!
