What we check for when preparing a report

carVertical has access to one of the largest database networks for vehicle records. Whether you're buying a vehicle locally or overseas – we can help you avoid a bad deal.

Damages

No one wants to buy a vehicle with hidden damages. This may result in overpaying for the vehicle and the repair costs in the future.

Mileage rollbacks

Mileage fraud is more common than you think. You're not only overpaying for the vehicle but also might end up with a hefty bill.

Recorded images

Knowing how the vehicle looked in the past is very important for understanding its history and learning about damaged or weak spots.

Safety recalls

Not everyone is a car guru. Having a list of common drawbacks helps you make a better buying decision.

Ownership changes

Knowing how many owners a vehicle has had helps you understand whether it was sold frequently. This may indicate serious issues.

Theft records

We check millions of records from international and local law enforcement to make sure a vehicle wasn't stolen in any country.
