How do you get a vehicle history report?

With Bumper, a vehicle history report is at your fingertips. You can easily get a car's history  if you have its VIN, license plate, or even if you know its year, make, and model.

Because we have access to data from federal government sources such as the National Motor Vehicle Title Information Service (NMVTIS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as well as your state's department of motor vehicles, our vehicle history reports are not only robust and accurate, but also easily available. 

Get access to 50 vehicle history reports per month with a Bumper subscription, which can be easily downloaded into PDF format, viewed from our iOS and Android apps, and more!

What's in a vehicle history report?

With Bumper, it's easier to ask what's not included in our vehicle history reports because they're so detailed. Examples of what you could find in our vehicle history reports include:

  • Photos
  • Detailed history
  • Sales history
  • Accident history
  • Theft records
  • Title records
  • Recalls
  • Market value
  • Ownership costs
  • Warranties
  • Safety ratings
  • Full vehicle specs

In addition, you also have the option to pull salvage records, and each report also includes a tool for guided self-inspections so you can make sure  the vehicle you want to learn more about lines up with what you're seeing in person.

How to get a free vehicle history report

Be wary of any site offering a free, comprehensive vehicle history report. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) provides a free VIN check tool to the public. It provides some basic information, such as whether the vehicle is subject to any insurance theft claims or has been reported stolen. Any other website claiming to offer free vehicle history reports is likely running your VIN through the NICB's tool, returning the same minimal information.

Legitimate, comprehensive vehicle history reports will require some form of payment, but not all reports are created equal. Most competitors charge per report, which can add up quickly when researching multiple vehicles.

But with Bumper, you can run multiple vehicle history reports, saving you both time and money.
