instaVIN™ Introduces Full Vehicle History Reports with Real-Time Data for $6.99, a Fraction of the Price of a CARFAX® Report

instaVIN Reports Include NMVTIS Title and Brand Data approved by U.S. Department of Justice

SAN DIEGO--()--instaVIN™ ( the pioneer of the first SMS mobile Accident History Report service, announced the launch of full Vehicle History Reports available online for only $6.99. This break through price is a fraction of the cost of competitive reports that range from $29.99 for an AutoCheck® report to $34.99 for a CARFAX® report. Through its partnership with the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), instaVIN reports will include the most comprehensive recent Junk/Salvage/Total Loss data in the vehicle history services industry. NMVTIS is the only vehicle history database that all states, insurance carriers, and junk salvage yards are required to report their data into, by federal law.

“Through our partnership with NMVTIS, we’re proud to bring dealers and consumers the best Title and Brand data in the industry,” said Jim Irish, CEO of MobileTrac, LLC provider of instaVIN data services. “Neither CARFAX nor AutoCheck report NMVTIS data, giving instaVIN a huge competitive advantage in providing the most comprehensive real-time title data at a game-changing price point. Consumers are now empowered to run their own reports at an affordable price.”

In addition to NMVTIS data, instaVIN Full Vehicle History Reports provide accident data through multiple sources including state DMV, police records, fire, insurance records and other proprietary sources. Unlike competitors, instaVIN draws each inquiry in real-time from source databases, minimizing the chances of acquiring a vehicle with a problem not yet recorded. instaVIN sets a new standard in reliable, timely, affordable Vehicle History Reports.

InstaVIN Real-Time Vehicle History Reports will include:

  • Vehicle Specifications and 24 VIN decode data points
  • Accident History including city, state and date of incident
  • Junk/Salvage/Total Loss--comprehensive data with contact information
  • Ownership history
  • Title and Brand data including 61 unique Brand indicators (potential problems)
  • Odometer problem indicators
  • Cash for Clunkers (
  • Real-time Vehicle Valuations indicating the average local retail asking price
  • Base MSRP invoice cost

In the world of used car buying, vehicle history disclosure is an essential key to transparency and customer satisfaction in a used-car purchase with instaVIN offering the most competitive title and brand vehicle history in the industry.


Through the Federal Anti-Car Theft Act of 1992, NMVTIS was created to help protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles and to keep stolen vehicles from being resold. The NMVTIS database is administered by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the U.S. Department of Justice. AAMVA is a nonprofit educational association representing U.S. and Canadian officials responsible for the administration and enforcement of motor vehicle laws.

Understanding a vehicle’s history is a critical step in any used car purchase whether you are a dealer at auction or a consumer buying a used vehicle in a private party sale or with a dealer. NMVTIS helps state and law enforcement in deterring and preventing title fraud and other crimes by allowing state titling agencies to further verify the validity of ownership documents before issuing new titles especially when the vehicle travels from state to state. NMVTIS data also includes descriptive labels called “brands” which identity a vehicle’s current or prior condition such as “salvage” or “flood” which convey additional information concerning the value of the vehicle, and help protect consumers from unknowingly buying a damaged vehicle.
