TORONTO, June 26, 2014 /CNW/ – Carfax today announced several major improvements to increase the benefits for Canadian auto dealers that subscribe to Carfax. Dealers now have access to damage claim amounts reported to Carfax from Canadian insurers and can easily purchase cross-Canada lien reports through Carfax. This vital information helps protect dealerships and their customers.
Canadian dealers now can become Carfax® Advantage® Dealers, helping build consumer confidence right away. This benefit, popular with US dealers, gives dealers access to all the Carfax Reports they need at one low, flat-rate, monthly fee.
‘Our mission is to make sure every customer drives away happy in a car they love,’ said Gregory Buhr, owner/principal at GWB Auto Sales in Manitoba. ‘To help us do that, we need the best data at a price that doesn’t blow away our budget. Carfax has proven again that they’re the right partner for us.’
Carfax also unveiled a newly updated Carfax® Vehicle History Report™ specifically redesigned for Canada. One major change is that all odometer readings are in kilometers to help eliminate any conversion issues for dealers.
‘Carfax plays a key role in nearly every aspect of a dealer’s used car operations,’ said Jon Arnett, general manager/managing director for Carfax Canada. ‘We’re working hard to meet the needs of Canadian dealers and help them sell cars faster for more money.’
Insurance claim amounts reported to Carfax are included on Carfax Reports, along with other vital details like registration history, odometer readings, number of owners, vehicle maintenance, safety recalls, and much more reported to Carfax. Dealers can easily access the real-time lien search from their account at www.carfaxonline.ca.
