B.C. auto dealers announce new vehicle history report for consumers

Vancouver, B.C. – British Columbia auto dealers and the industry’s regulatory authority, the Motor Dealer Council, announced a partnership with a Canadian company, CarProof, that has built a network to provide a comprehensive, accurate and timely used vehicle history report.

The CarProof Verified BC report will provide comprehensive vehicle
history including prior registrations, status changes, insured crash repairs, verified odometer readings, and any current liens from all across Canada and the United States. It does not provide private information as to prior vehicle ownership.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of the New Car Dealers
Association, Glen Ringdal, added, “Consumers have the right to full disclosure of a vehicle’s history and confidence in the information provided by the seller. CarProof is particularly valuable when a consumer is buying a vehicle from someone unknown to them, especially a private individual. It is by far the best report of its kind we have ever seen.”

The CarProof Verified B.C. package will sell for $59.95, including ICBC’s vehicle claims history. CarProof is available as follows:

  • From any reputable car dealer. Visit association web sites:
    www.newcardealers.ca or www.ara-bc.ca

  • Through MDC online at www.mdcbc.com or by phoning 604-294-9889
    extension 4 or, toll free, 1-877-294-9889 extension 4.

  • Through ICBC at www.icbc.com or CarProof directly at www.carproof.com
