Using Online Tools After A Car Accident

Submitted by pec on

After a car accident there is a lot of information that you will need about your car and any car that you’re thinking about buying as a replacement. Bumper.com can provide a comprehensive auto history on any car that you’re looking at and give you fair market value rates for your car, used cars, or new cars that you’re considering buying.

When you’re valuing your vehicle or looking at buying a new or used car you need to have all the information in order to make a smart decision. Fair market value for the condition that your car is in will help you get a good price if you’re selling it, or know what you should be paying for repairs if you’re having it fixed. And if you’re looking at buying a new or used car you need to know that car’s history, any accidents it’s been in, and what it’s worth.

Unveiling Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs)

Every car has a Vehicle Identification Number or VIN number. That number is used to track the history of a vehicle, provide information about the manufacturer, age of the vehicle, unique features that the car has, and to track recalls, registration, warranties, thefts, and insurance coverage. The VIN is like a car’s fingerprint, and just like human fingerprints every VIN is unique to a particular car.

Bumper uses VIN numbers to compile reliable, regularly updated information from NMVTIS, JD Power, NHTSA, and many other top industry data sources, including state-level government agencies, insurance providers and auto industry partners. Our affordable vehicle history reports may have accidents, recalls, market value data, in-depth ownership cost projections and more.

There are a lot of sites that can give you basic information about a car based on the VIN, but Bumper gives you an expanded report that contains all of the information you need to know about a car. With a Bumper report you will find out:

  • All service and repairs done on the car
  • What features the car has

And more.
