Act with confidence when buying, selling or financing a vehicle

Our Verifications solution gives the wider South African motor industry the power to reduce crime, risk and losses – even helping to improve business practices. By sharing the wealth of vehicle information stored in our database, we can help you prevent the sale, auction, registration, financing and insuring of suspect, invalid or stolen vehicles.

Verifications brings together the results of extensive international experience, using state-of-the-art technology in the sourcing, aggregation, management and dissemination of data relating to vehicles. Our comprehensive vehicle information is widely used by dealers, asset finance institutions, loss adjusters, auctioneers and the public sector for the confirmation of specific motor vehicle identification and verification criteria. Our database is updated daily from reputable sources, such as the South African Police Service (SAPS), and is fully supported by the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers South Africa (NAAMSA), the South African Council of Banks and the Retail Motor Industry (RMI). The highest international standards of data security, accuracy and audit logging are incorporated and adhered to.

Our Vehicle Valuations delivers extensive and dynamic information to enable more informed, less risky vehicle trading decisions.
