What's in the Free VIN Check Report?
As part of our giveback to the community, VinFreeCheck provides basic free VIN check report to the public to determine the vehicle is a lemon, salvaged or has flooded condition. We also provide historical mileage/sales records for free! No credit card required!
Vehicle Specification (FREE)

Salvage/Junk Title Check (FREE BASIC CHECK)
We check your VIN against our own Canada and United States Salvage Title database. You can find out whether you Vehicle came with a Salvaged title or clean title
Free Flood Check (FREE)

Realtime Market Pricing (FREE)
VinFreeCheck scans all the car listing sites across North America to give you the most accurate pricing, preventing you from overpaying for a vehicle.
In our example, we ran a simple vin check on a 2004 GMC TOPKICK 4500(1GDE4E12X4F519742)
In the free vin check report's summary section, you can quickly see the truck is not involved in any flood, or has any lemon title assigned to the vehicle title. Of course, for additional information, you may proceed to get our premium report to get more comprehensive details such as those accident details.
However, we believe those two checks are the most crucial ones, as any vehicle been through flood/recoded lemon tends to experience more mechanical issues down the road.
Continuing with our example - 2004 GMC TOPKICK 4500: We also provide sales record in our free vin check report. The mileage and sales record are displayed from the oldest sales date to the latest date.
We can see the mileage is consistent with the event date and every checks out as it should. Great!
However, if the mileage records are not consistent with the dates, eg:
- May 12 2019 - 10,000 mileage
- Jan 20 2020 - 9,800 mileage
It's a high possibility that the vehicle odometer was rollbacked or tampered.
