About Vehicle Report

The Vehicle Report gives you all the important information you need to decide whether to buy the vehicle or not, and at what price.
It gives you relevant details about the vehicle specifications, its history and the current market value. It also gives you an estimation of the total cost of ownership.
With this information you can negotiate better or avoid costly mistakes, like buying a car that is actually from a different production year, or buying a car that has been imported and had some serious previous damages, or buying a vehicle for much more than it’s worth.

Our vehicle reports will help you check for car accident history in the UAE. Simply enter the vehicle’s VIN and get the full report, which will include details of any accident the car has been in USA, Canada or Europe. You can also check accident history from the Dubai RTA or Abu Dhabi police website.

Selecting a used car in the UAE is simpler if you have detailed information about the car so you can accurately understand its value. This includes learning all about its history, maintenance status and the total cost you would have to bear to own it. Read our detailed blog on buying a used car in the UAE for some great tips on how to check second hand cars in Dubai or elsewhere in the UAE, so you can make the right decision for you.

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and Specifications

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is composed of 17 characters (digits and capital letters) and acts as a unique identifier for the vehicle. Read more about VINs and VIN checks in our blog.

In most cases, you will find the VIN below the front windshield, on the dashboard at the driver's side. You may also find the VIN number on the driver's side door pillar. You can often also find it on your vehicle’s registration card. Although the VIN there may have been incorrectly spelled while during the data entry. We recommend checking it on the vehicle itself.

You can use any vehicle’s VIN number to get its detailed vehicle history. All you need to do is locate your VIN on the car and then enter your VIN on our site and generate a report which shares all your VIN check information.

The VIN is not a requirement to get the report. However, we strongly recommend providing it as we use it to check external databases for any record of import, accidents and damages. These events may have a direct impact on the vehicles market value.

There are multiple ways to confirm the exact trim/spec of your vehicle.
  • The trim/ specifications are usually listed in the vehicle’s owner manual.
  • The original invoice of the vehicle usually mention the trim/ specifications.
  • The trim/ specifications are also often mentioned on the vehicle.
  • If you can confirm the engine size, horsepower, number of seats and doors you may be able to confirm the trim by doing a quick search online.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a comprehensive tool designed for VehicleReport users to calculate the total monthly expense incurred if they use the vehicle in question. This section allows you to change and set the major expense points according to your usage and driving trend and the result is a total cost that would be required on a monthly basis to own this vehicle.
