It’s a concern that every used car buyer has anytime they start looking at vehicles: What if this car has previously been involved in a serious accident or collision? Until now, the only way to find out was to rely on a service like CarFax, but even that was not 100 percent accurate because it relies only on data provided by insurance companies and auto dealers.
That’s the core problem that the new Accident Scan app, now available at the App Store for iPhone and iPad users, is able to solve for used car buyers. Using the Accident Scan app, it’s possible to detect possible signs of serious repairs or collisions within minutes. And those minutes could save you thousands on the final purchase.
Simply stated, the Accident Scan app is the best way to find out if a used vehicle has been in an accident. It’s fast, it’s convenient, and it has unrivalled accuracy. With the information that the Accident Scan app reveals, you’ll be in a much stronger negotiating position the next time you step onto a user car dealer lot.
The power of the Accident Scan app comes from its ability to tap into the powerful camera on the iPhone or iPad. By taking pictures of the vehicle from just one inch away, it’s possible to detect slight variations in paint, as well as other irregularities. The app, using a proprietary algorithm, is then able to determine whether those irregularities are due to normal wear-and-tear, or whether they are the result of a collision or accident that hasn’t been reported to an insurance company.
As any auto body shop owner will tell you, one of the most common misperceptions among used car buyers is that every incident is automatically reported to dealers and insurance companies. But that’s not always the case. Not all accidents go through insurance claims.
Trained auto repair professionals use the same method that the Accident Scan app uses – they check out the paint job of a vehicle for tell-tale signs of an accident. And the Accident Scan app can pinpoint signs of an accident within minutes. That means you won’t miss any potentially serious accidents or repairs.
In fact, the Accident Scan app is so powerful that it boasts a 97 percent accuracy rate. Even better, the cost of downloading the Accident Scan app is cheaper than ordering a CarFax report. So you’re getting an affordable, quick and convenient way to eliminate the risk of buying a used car, all in the power of a smartphone app that you can take everywhere.
So the next time you’re looking to buy a used car – take control of the process. Instead of worrying that you might be missing a crucial part of the information about a used vehicle, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you have a complete set of information. That makes you a smarter buyer, and it also makes you a more autonomous buyer. You’re no longer dependent on insurance reports for your information. In short, the new Accident Scan app is the best way to find out if a car has been in an accident.
