Accident Reports - Anything Further of Note?
When I see an accident report listed, should I get a copy of the
actual police report?
When an accident record is found on the AutoCheck Vehicle History Report, AutoCheck will provide you with all the information provided to us
by the police. In some cases, this includes details of the accident
and an estimate of the extent damage as assessed by the officer
on the scene. Information about how accident reports are processed
in the state is also provided.
Getting a copy of the
actual police report typically produces *no* extra useful information. AutoCheck has offered as much pertinent information as possible. Therefore,
your best bet, is to have your dealer or a mechanic look at the
accident area to confirm the repair work was done satisfactorily
and that the accident did not affect the safety and reliability
of the vehicle.
If you have further questions,
please contact AutoCheck and we’ll be happy to assist you.
