What is an accident or damage history?
Hidden damage is a major concern when purchasing a used vehicle. Most used cars can’t be identified if they have been in an accident or otherwise damaged. A thorough inspection in person would not reveal all. A mechanic who is impartial and available to help you with your car problems is also not always possible.
Selling a used car is the same. A potential buyer will first ask if the vehicle has ever been damaged, and if so what you did to repair it. A Check Reg vehicle history report is a great resource.
What can I learn from my accident history?
The Check Reg report’s accident history provides a summary about any incidents or damage that has been reported to a vehicle. This includes damage from collisions and extreme weather conditions. Anything that could impact the safety or integrity of the vehicle.
The vehicle history report includes details about vehicle accidents and damage records. This allows you to make informed decisions, whether you are a buyer or seller.
The report will inform you of any data that is available.
- The number of incidents
- They were born on the dates indicated
- The point at which impact occurs
- The repair cost
We are constantly updating our database. Sometimes, damages may appear on your report that were not there before. We strongly recommend that you check your report for any updates as soon as it is valid.
What is a damage history report necessary?

Avoid letting accident reports discourage you from buying a used car. You should not be discouraged from buying a used car if it has a history of accidents. Ask the seller for details and any documentation regarding repairs. Find out if the seller offers warranty protection.
