At CARFAX our purpose is to provide insight through information; creating trust, confidence and empowerment by delivering only the highest quality products, customer experience, and people.
Everyone at CARFAX has an important role to play and we value all of our staff with the highest regard and respect. Without the many wonderful people who are devoted to serving our customers, CARFAX would simply not be where we are today.
Although what we provide is the most comprehensive vehicle history report in Canada, what we take pride in goes far beyond that. Our Core Purpose and Values are much more than words on a page to us: they are what we live every day at every level of the company.
Some vehicles have had multiple owners, which makes it difficult for car dealers to notify current owners of safety recalls on their vehicles. CARFAX will let you know if the car you’re considering has an unfixed safety recall, so you can be confident you’ll be safe behind the wheel.
If the person you’re buying a car from owes money on the car and doesn’t tell you, you could end up responsible for the remainder of the debt.
CARFAX Verified reports include a Canadian lien search that will tell you if there is money is owing on the vehicle. Don’t get your new used car taken away by creditors. Be certain the car has been paid for before you buy.
One of the greatest factors that can affect the value of an automobile is past damage history. A CARFAX report tells you if the vehicle has been in an accident, and the extent of the damage.
From fender benders to heavy damage, a CARFAX report can tell you everything that has happened to your vehicle.
This summary is a snapshot of the records CARFAX has found on your vehicle.
Report Findings in Chronological Order
Our report findings give you a quick overview of the vehicle’s life. Clicking on any of these records will bring you to the details in the subsequent sections.
Accident, Collision and Damage Detail
This section compiles data from collision estimating facilities, insurance information and police reports to let you know what, if any, damage the vehicle has sustained in its life.
Available on our CARFAX Verified Report, this section shows if any other party has a legal claim on the vehicle as collateral for a debt owed to them. This is important because a lien can be enforced against the new owner of the vehicle if isn’t settled before they buy it.
Canadian Registration and Branding
A look at where in Canada and the U.S. the vehicle is, or has been registered, as well as the status of the vehicle in those jurisdictions.
Stolen Vehicle Check
This check provides data from the Canadian Police Information Centre to see if the vehicle is marked as actively stolen.
Here you’ll find any applicable details about the vehicle being imported or exported between Canada and the U.S.
