Why Should I Run a Rhode Island VIN Check?
Check for accidents. If you are buying a used car, you should check the VIN to see if the vehicle was involved in a major collision and deemed unsafe for the road. Hidden damages can cost you a lot of money and compromise the safety of the vehicle, its passengers and other road users. According to the 2019 Rhode Island Crash Report, a total of 53 fatal traffic crashes were reported in 2019, of which 57 people were killed. Rhode Island’s crash fatality rate is 0.75 deaths per hundred million vehicle miles traveled in 2019.
Check for thefts. According to the FBI’s 2019 Crime in US reports, Rhode Island had a total of 1,358 incidents of motor vehicle theft in 2019. Checking the VIN to verify the car’s history can help you avoid buying a stolen vehicle.
Check for title brands. Rhode Island’s coastal location makes it more exposed to natural disasters like hurricanes, storms, tsunamis, and flooding. A vehicle’s title information can tell you quite a lot about the car’s history, like whether it has been reported as salvage, rebuilt or flood damage.
