About Us

CarFacts is a service offered by carsales.com Ltd (ABN 91 074 444 018), a publicly owned company and Australia’s number 1 in online automotive classifieds. Being part of the Carsales Network means CarFacts has access to the most extensive automotive databases in the country and combined with information from the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) and other external sources enables a CarFacts History Report to contain the most relevant and up-to-date information possible. Our aim at CarFacts is to improve the transparency between buyers and sellers of used vehicles in Australia and reduce fraud.

Rest assured that CarFacts provides the most comprehensive vehicle history reports for used cars in Australia.

Each report checks:
  • If there is finance/money owing on the vehicle
  • If the vehicle has ever been declared as written off
  • If the vehicle has ever been stolen
  • If there are any odometer discrepancies (possible rollback)
  • Plus much more

Further to the above, we match your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to our vehicle databases and check for any odometer discrepancies, alerting you of a potential odometer wind back, suspect kilometres or a faulty odometer.

PPSR has replaced all state and territory registers of security interests in personal property, including registers of interests in motor vehicles such as the VSR in Victoria or REVS in NSW. CarFacts has established a direct connection with the PPSR to provide purchasers of motor vehicles with detailed history reports for any Australian used car with a VIN. Simply enter the VIN of a used vehicle and you will have a CarFacts History Report emailed to you within 15 minutes.
