Buying and Selling Cars

Vehicle Searches

Don’t get stuck making lemonade. A vehicle history search, such as CARFAXCarProof VERIFIED, or Alberta Vehicle Information Report helps protect you when buying a used car, by telling you if the vehicle has been previously reported stolen, written off, or involved in a collision.
