CARCO's Pre-Insurance Inspection Solution

Why does CARCO's vehicle Pre-Insurance Inspection Solution exist?

CARCO's Pre-Insurance Inspection Solution prevents fraud, reduces risk and decreases costs to insureds. This is complemented with the powerful vehicle title history data from National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS).

Since 1977, CARCO has been fighting fraud and reducing losses by creating an inspection database which is accessible 24/7 and houses over 35 million electronic inspections of the 50 million inspections conducted to date, which is accessed by law enforcement and insurance companies at a rate of 11,000 vehicles searched per day. Law enforcement and insurance fraud investigators not only regularly-access the database, but utilize it as a training tool as well!

Insurance fraud costs the motoring public millions of dollars each year. CARCO, working closely with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and other law enforcement agencies, has helped recover and prevent tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent claims over the years.

As the leading provider of Pre-Insurance Inspection services in the United States, we confirm inspected vehicles are properly valued and insured.
