In the battle between Autocheck vs Carfax, one important aspect of evaluating these vehicle history report services is to compare their prices. In this article we are going to break down the costs to acquire one or several vehicle history reports using both AutoCheck and Carfax.
Autocheck vs Carfax – How much for a single vehicle history report?
Although there isn’t a major price difference when purchasing a single vehicle history report, there still is a difference. Carfax charges $34.99 for a single report while AutoCheck only charges $29.99. Does Carfax provide anything extra for that $5 that Autocheck doesn’t? In my opinion the answer is no but we will look into that another time.
Autocheck Vs Carfax – How much for multiple vehicle history reports?
When evaluating used vehicles, many consumers want to run multiple vehicle history reports before they actually decide on a car or truck to purchase. This is where the Autocheck and Carfax services differ.
AutoCheck allows you to run unlimited reports over a 30 day period for $44.99. Carfax allows you to acquire a total of 5 vehicle history reports for $44.99. It should also be noted that if you purchase 5 reports from Carfax, they MUST be used within 60 days or they are no longer available.
As you can see, both services have their advantages. While AutoCheck allows you to run unlimited reports, you only have a 30 day period to do so. Carfax gives you 60 days access to their system but you are only allowed to run up to 5 reports.
Final thoughts On Pricing…
When it comes to pricing alone, I would have to give a slight advantage to AutoCheck in the Autocheck vs Carfax debate. Their single report option is $5 cheaper than Carfax’s and they allow you to run unlimited vehicle history reports for $44.99 while Carfax only lets you run 5 reports for the same price.
