Any additional information about a used car can save you from a bad purchase. For example, the history of registration actions, which, like other data about the car, can be found on the Internet.
Why is the history of registration actions important? After all, this is not an accident and not a repair in the service - the change of owner does not seem to directly affect the state of the car. However, frequent resale hints that something is wrong with the car. There are many reasons for the numerous changes in the owners of the vehicle - illegal import into the country, violations in the "customs clearance" of the car, the presence of "pitfalls" in the technical condition, "black spots" in operation - for example, the hidden fact of working in taxi mode and, as a result, twisted run.
In addition, it is useful to know the past owners of the car - more or less recent. They may turn out to be malicious debtors, and your future car may be the subject of legal or property disputes. We have already written about these collisions in more detail.
How to start checking the registration history by VIN-code?
By contacting the traffic police - today anyone can get information from the department for free about all registration actions with a car. It is not necessary to go to the branch. It is enough, knowing the license plate or VIN-code of the car, to use the corresponding online service of the traffic police.
We must pay tribute: the functionality of the service is gradually expanding. Today, it allows you to find out the history of the registration of a car in the traffic police, "break through" it to participate in an accident, theft, disposal, and also check for restrictions: arrest or bail, in which registration actions are impossible.
