fubeca Afton, WY

Fraudulent VIN report service. They were advertising "Vehicle Service History" as part of their reports on 3/14/2022. However, when I received a report that contained no such information I contact the company for a refund. The next day they removed this reference from their website and it no longer says "Vehicle Service History". Take a look at the WayBackMachine and you can see for yourself! They refused to provide a refund without meeting some ridiculous requirements. However, the requirements they were requiring me to meet were not at all spelled out on their website. I called them out on all of this and they would do nothing. I filed for a charge back through my credit card company and got my money back. Use one of the free VIN checkers online - they will give you all the same information for nothing!

After some problems trying to fix a duplicated charge, they ended up refunding the amount. IMO they should improve that kind of process, as it took me a lot of time to get the refund, but at least they finally did the right thing. Other than that, the report is very complete. so I change my review from 1 to 3.

2019 was a real year of failures, in March I have bought a real car wreck without knowing it. Ford C-MAX, 2016 was hit previously and the car owner has completely fixed everything, but the problems started to show up after I bought it. So, after almost half of the year I decided to end this story and buy another car, but this time I chose to check vehicle history before buying it. I have checked few options via carvertical and the best one was Ford focus, 2013. This car report was without any damages, with every year mileage records, so I am already driving it for a couple of months and I am very happy with my choice!

I bought a report from carVertical, to check on a car that had been sold in an auction a few years back. I knew the car had some damage to it back then. I wanted to see the auction pictures to see the extent of the damage, as other relevant data was already known to me (history, etc). After entering the VIN number to carVertical, it showed it will check and show historical images in addition to other data. After purchasing the report, there were unfortunately no photos at all available. This meant I had to buy the report again from a competitor site, that included 10 photos of the car and provided the information I needed. I do understand that sometimes not all data is available for all sites and these things happen, but as a customer I chose carVertical as I had heard good things about them and they had the highest rating compared to their competitors. In my case the report did not give me any value, so it was money wasted for me. When explaining this to carVertical customer support and asking for a refund, their opinion is, that this is not a valid reason for a refund. I am disappointed in the way the customer support handled this case, as I can see now that customer satisfaction does actually not matter to carVertical. If a refund is not possible, even giving a new report voucher for example would help keep the customer happy and turn a negative experience around. Unfortunately even no alternative solution was offered to me.

Admittedly, I'm not a car guy. I don’t really know what I’m doing with this sort of thing, but carVertical gave me a tun of very clear and understandable information. I received a bunch of info on car history. Thanks to the company, even though I don’t know a lot about cars, I was able to buy a car with confidence knowing that I was getting a good one.

Me, being absolutely clueless when it comes to anything about cars, carVertical was my saving grace! They gave clear and trustful data on any car I was interested in, such as the vehicles history and mileage. I had found this page looking around helplessly trying to find a new car that I wouldn't regret buying later. With carVertical, there will be no regrets here!

I’m a total novice when it comes to cars. Thank god my mechanic brother recommended carVertical because honestly I would have never even thought to check all this stuff. They go into so much detail about the history, and they even do it globally!! For me it would be pointless to use any other service that doesn’t give this much detail. I’m a customer for life.

I've always been cautious of buying a used car before, the technical faults as a layman have always kept me away from proceeding to buy a used car. But CarVertical has helped me answer all my doubts and gave me detailed history of the car which would have been otherwise impossible to know. They not only provide the details but also their customer care team is very efficient in answering anything/any doubt you have promptly to your satisfaction. I Would recommend them most definitely if buying a used car is your first option.

What could be better than carvertical?! I am so satisfied with their service - not mentioning the price which is one of the smallest of all these VIN check providers! I have checked my old car which had an accident two years ago and carVertical even showed which part of the car was damaged, including pictures of the accident. Just love it! We have also tried carvertical with our friend, his report was less informative, but had all the mileage data, car equipment information, checked if the car is now stolen - basically accidents free and clear report.

I found CarVertical online while looking to purchase another car. I usually buy new but decided to try my hand at getting a used car. I was a little skeptical at first with the horror stories I’ve heard about buying used, but CarVertical made the whole process way easier. They spelled out everything about the car in a very clear and concise way so I felt like nothing was being hidden. Also the blockchain verification gave me a big sense of relief knowing that the car report was accurate. I would definitely recommend CarVertical and would definitely use again!

A fast service for a good information. CarVertical provides a history of the life from a used motor vehicle. Depending on the vehicle category, brand and age, the amount of information provided may vary. Especially interesting for used cars upscale. It's not worth the behicle expertise, but it makes it possible to get an idea, to sort the vehicles tampered with, and to avoid buying a vehicle that could have a rough history or a modified mileage.

I've never purchased a used car before, I've always been too wary of being ripped off. But using CarVertical and seeing the detailed vehicle history really boosted my confidence, and I was able to purchase a used car, at a lower price, thanks to the car history report. Their customer service team was amazing and answered all of my questions. I would 100% recommend CarVertical to anyone looking to purchase a used car.

I was looking for my first car and I found CarVertical. At first, I was skeptical and scared of buying a used car on the Internet, but CarVertical helped me a lot! When I was looking for my dream cheap car, I could be hundred percent sure about the cars condition. Everything went smoothly and my questions were quickly answered. I recommend Carvertical to anyone who is looking for a new used ride!

Very good price compared with the information they give. Would recommend for a friend for sure. I have bought 3 reports already, because I help to find the cars to my friends and family, so carvertical hasn't disappointed me yet, their reports includes lots of information (pictures, odometer data, registers and so on). I will buy their reports in the future too.

I would like to share my experience with carvertical. I was thinking about getting a new car or buy a used cheaper alternative. As we all know, buying a used car is like buying a lottery ticket, but it's cheaper. Since I was checking possible deals online, I have noticed carvertical VIN checker. It really helped me to check a few suspicious cars. The results were amazing actually, the report gave me accidents pictures, odometer frauds and other useful points for me. I was even saved from buying a stolen car!

Provided with a reliable information which was very impressive. This is the best place to turn for those looking for a detailed history of a car they want to buy. Thank you so much!

I can’t imagine how is someone able to choose a car without a thorough check! Carvertical’s report gives all the data you will need, past car accidents and damages, odometer data, insurance records and more. I have used it once and I plan to use it again soon, as I’ll be getting a car for my son.

I was wary of investing my money for a used car since I heard about plenty of fraudulent cases. CarVertical is my go-to service from now on as it proved immensely helpful by providing explicit details about registration, technical information, unreported damage and all. I highly recommend their service.

There is no way to know the previous history of the car by just tapping and looking. Used cars could have a lot of issues. It is very easy to refurbish them and make them look new. CarVertical helped me with judging the car by looking at all the details, including the true mileage. It is highly recommended to use carVertical.

carVertical is an amazing service. My friend suggested it to me, and I was shocked by the service they provide. You can enter any VIN code and they will help you scan if the vehicle is damaged, stolen or has irregular mileage. This site helped me and a lot of my friends. Very helpful if you are buying a used car.

I've purchased a report which has literally 0 value (no information whatsoever). Tried couple of other car checks - and result is exactly the same. I seriously question if business is legitimate since all the cars I queried are relativelly new in age, have service history etc.

I ran a report for my car to check the accuracy. You cannot rely on the provided data. My report contains wrong mileage data, data is taken without being verified from obscure car workshops. I contacted the support team but in vain. You will never receive money back for an incorrect or incomplete report. In addition, they will never verify the reality and will not correct the wrong data.

CarVertical is great for checking up on cars you're thinking about buying. It gives you all the history and info you'll need to make a judgement, even if the seller is being dishonest about the car's stats. It's a great way to avoid getting scammed, especially if you're buying a used car.

Customer service at carvertical was helpful and I would recommend using their services to find out items such as the odometer data, number of accidents and the locations where the vehicle has been owned and driven. I only wish that the reports would have more pictures from the accidents.

Miladin Malic ,

Report didn't show anything at all. No mileage - no nothing. It's a car made in EU 3 years ago (in 2017) and this site didn't even bring me the correct model information. It says it has a manual transmission while, in reality, it's automatic. But what really made me write a negative review is fact that you have to pay first and then find out Carvertical hasn't got anything at all. That's really scammy.
