COOKVILLE, Tn.

Users now can retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers’ cars by entering only the license plate information. The new QuickVIN tool is available to all current customers within the latest versions of the software.
‘What a luxary to quickly get all the specific vehicle data with only a license plate number,’ says Jamie Schwoerer of Don Owen Tire Service Inc. in Illinois. ‘We don’t need expensive scanners or have to take additional time running back and forth to cars to get the data. Tire Power with Carfax QuickVIN reduces the time it takes for us to build a work order and gets our customers out the door quicker.
