Reduce risk, buy the right vehicle
Carhistory.com.au is part of the Veda Group and is Australia's first online automotive bureau. We provide the most comprehensive range of vehicle history data in Australia.
It is vital for all Motor Dealers to ensure they are trading the right cars at the right price to make profitable transactions whilst ensuring legal and compliance obligations are met.
Each vehicle transaction has an element of risk associated with it. It could be a repairable write-off or have money owing on it. That's why it's important to have the correct information to accurately assess the value of the vehicle prior to bringing it into the dealership.
In order to satisfy legal and compliance obligations it is also vital that Motor Dealers provide clear title to the vehicle when it is sold. This can be difficult as encumbrance registers (REVs/VSR) operate on a state-by-state basis rather than nationally.
Carhistory.com.au draws information across state boundaries to ensure you have access to a national view of a vehicle, including REVs and VSR information. For customers of Carhistory.com.au the transition across to PPSR from REVS will be seamless

Making these reports available to customers is a powerful way to build trust between a potential customer and a vehicle seller and can have a positive influence on sales results.
