instaVIN Selected by Copart to Provide Vehicle History Reports

June 06, 2012 - Press Release

SAN DIEGO – instaVIN, a provider of vehicle history reports, and Copart, an online auction company of used, salvage and clean title vehicles, announced the availability of instaVIN Vehicle History & Title Reports through Copart’s online vehicle listings. This enables Copart’s dealers and bidders to quickly and easily obtain reports through instaVIN’s patent-pending order process.

Links to the instaVIN vehicle history report service from Copart’s car listings help buyers and dealers better understand a vehicle’s history before bidding. instaVIN reports provide expanded title and brand information and help identify clean title vehicles from salvage titled vehicles. The one-click order process passes the VIN automatically to instaVIN for fast and convenient ordering. Buyers then get a free car record check and free auto VIN check prior to purchase, and reports start at just $6.99. Buyers can get a free vehicle history report when they buy two, bringing the cost of instaVIN to $4.66 each. Dealers can buy in volume for as little as $3.99 each.

instaVIN reports provide DMV title data, junk and salvage events, insurance total loss records, open lien status, vehicle specifications, and listing data on vintage and modern cars, trucks, RVs, and motorcycles. For buyers, knowing the title brand and insurance total loss history before bidding on Copart’s vehicles can save time and money. instaVIN reports virtually every insurance total loss record, even though the title may still be shown as unbranded. Sellers listing vehicles with Copart will automatically have the link to the history report order page available to buyers from their listing, which helps maximize their sales opportunities.

“Copart is always looking to add transparency to our online auctions,” said Vincent Mitz, president of Copart. “InstaVIN vehicle history reports are a great resource that provides buyers with more confidence and display information that match DMV records. We selected instaVIN as one of our vehicle history reporting partners because of the quality of their NMVTIS report and the cost structure benefits our customers.”

“We are excited to work with Copart to bring additional value to Copart’s online buying experience,” said Jim Irish, CEO of “Copart’s buyers and dealers are already reporting positive feedback on the instaVIN service.”
