Look up title history and checks for any VIN

Every Detailed Vehicle History report checks for title history. By using our Nigeria title check tool, you can uncover following important information about the vehicle.

  • Clear Title – A clear title indicates that the vehicle has no credit or any form of lien. In legal terms, the vehicle is solely owned by the owner and there are no disputes or outstanding payments towards a third party concerning the vehicle in question.
  • Affidavit Title – The seller provides the affidavit in lieu of title stating the paperwork that is missing, stolen, or destroyed. This is a legal document and is notarized or certified by relevant authorities.
  • Bonded Title – Also known as the ‘Certificate of Title Surety’, this refers to a situation where the title of the vehicle was damaged or lost during the transfer process. Now that the title is unavailable, the ownership cannot be established legally and cannot be transferred using a normal process. Hence, a bonded title is processed using a surety bond. The vehicle will have ‘Bonded’ stamp for a period of 3 to 5 years and during this period, the owner can go to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get a clean title for the vehicle.
  • Certificate of Destruction – A vehicle with a certificate of destruction is likely to be destroyed or shipped to overseas markets. Usually, insurance companies pay insurance claims on badly damaged insured vehicles. This way, insurance companies take ownership of these damaged vehicles and process them under the title of certificate of destruction. It is important to note that a car with a title of certificate of destruction is highly unlikely to gain a valid title for registration. Also, a vehicle with this title will not be allowed to be used on the road in most circumstances.
  • Salvage Title – A car with a salvaged title has suffered major damage in an accident or from another source. In general, salvage title vehicle has none to very low book value and this means a total loss for the owner. Also, several car dealers do not deal with cars having a salvage title. Yet, dealers might sell a car with salvage title without declaring it. That is why our VIN decoder service is an important tool that you can use to safeguard your interest.

    It is still possible to revise the title of a salvage-titled car. A car that has been repaired and inspected by relevant authorities for road use can be re-tilted and used again. Another option is to repair the car and then process it under the export title. A salvaged title vehicle can be exported to some key overseas markets like Ukraine, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Senegal, and many others.

  • Electronic Title – The electronic title is a digital title that could be issued for a car by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Our advanced VIN check service also finds the electronic title for the vehicle.
  • Export Title – The VIN Decoder service provides a detailed auction history along with the export title. A vehicle which is to be exported overseas has an export title and custom clearance documentation. The export title allows the overseas buyer to process the documents accordingly and without any complications.
  • Junk Title – The junk title is designated to a car when it is sold to a junkyard. The intention is to scrap these cars for spare parts. Alongside certificate of destruction, the junk title is another title that you should check to better understand the worth of the car you are buying.
  • Lienholder Title – A car with lien or any credit against it is issued with a title directly to the lienholder. The title often indicates that there is some outstanding payment for the vehicle that is still being paid by the current owner. The payments could be owed to a bank or some other third party. The lienholder will be the lender and they will also retain possession of the title until all dues are paid. But, the owner of the vehicle will be the buyer.
  • Parts Only Title – A parts only title means that the vehicle has suffered major damage in an accident. The car might not be repairable and cannot be used in the United States anymore. The transfer is completed under the part only title with a bill of sale. In some cases, the export title can also be processed for these vehicles. But, these vehicles cannot be registered or titled again in the United States.
  • Reconstructed Title – A car will have a reconstructed title if the car has undergone serious damage and repair. The title is provided by an authorized rebuilder, body shop, or insurance company.
  • Rebuilt Title – A vehicle that has suffered major damage, has been repaired, and then inspected for road use, will have a rebuilt title. A rebuilt title can be issued by the insurance company, an authorized rebuilder, body shop, or collision center. A car with a rebuilt title might face difficulties to get complete insurance coverage. Often insurance firms have some limitations and reservations regarding a vehicle with a rebuilt title. Our VIN check tool provides a detailed history report including all the title check reports.
