VIN History and Inspection Data Help Dealers Provide History and Condition Transparency
January 27, 2023 – Dallas, Tex. – Today, VINData® and Upstream Inspections announced an integration relationship that provides dealers with a new standard in vehicle transparency. VINData’s flagship Vehicle Title and History Reports now contain Upstream Inspection information from inspections performed at dealerships and other locations.
VINData reports now contain a new “inspection information” tab with live inspection data such as frame damage, prior paint, reconditioning required, odor indicators, and tire condition along with current photos, AutoGrade and much more. In addition to Upstream Inspection detail, VINData reports contain title information, junk/salvage/insurance loss records, open lien/active theft/open recall records. The augmented history report helps dealers determine vehicle value and market the vehicle to consumers.
