What’s So Special About a Carfax Canada Report
- Carfax Canada is the only service that provides consumers with Canadian lien and/or security interest information on vehicles from right across Canada and guarantees the results. Carfax Canada is connected live to each provincial and territorial registrar responsible for maintaining these records. Other U.S.-based services (including CARFAX), do not report any Canadian vehicle lien information.
- Carfax Canada is electronically connected on a real-time (“live”) basis to its data sources. This means that the data is always current and not outdated. Other services purchase data dumps periodically, leaving the chance that recent important data is not included in their reports.
- Carfax Canada is the only vehicle history report available in English and French
- Carfax Canada is the only service that provides consumers with Canadian insurance and accident claims data. Through their live connection to comprehensive databases that service the Canadian insurance industry, Carfax Canada provides data from Canada’s private insurance industry along with the public insurer in Saskatchewan. Carfax Canada also has a product (“Verified BC”) that instantaneously searches the database of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC).
- In addition to all of the above, Carfax Canada reports also provide consumers with data from one of the largest U.S.-based vehicle history services, Experian Automotive. Through their live connection to Experian’s 2 billion+ record database, all Carfax Canada reports include the data you would get from other popular U.S.-based vehicle history services, including a Lemon Search.
