|Free Online Saskatchewan VIN Search|
|Friday, 04 April 2008|
SGI has now released a new free function on their website where users can perform a Saskatchewan wide search on the history of a particular VIN.
The online service is free and provides the status of the vehicle, the date it was last registered and its damage claims history in Saskatchewan since January 1998. The results only include claims paid under SGI's Auto Fund licence plate and includes whether it has been given a status such as rebuilt, stolen, non-repairable or a total loss.
From the SGI news release dated February 5, 2008:
SGI is making it easier than ever for customers to find helpful information about used vehicles.To perform your free search go to http://www.sgi.sk.ca/online_services/vin/index.html
SGI has introduced a free online Saskatchewan Damage Claims History Search, which gives customers the ability to check a vehicle’s history of damage claims in the province since Jan. 1, 1998, as well as its most recent Saskatchewan registration expiry date and if it has been given a status such as rebuilt, stolen, non-repairable or a total loss. To perform the search, a customer simply needs the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), which can be found on both the vehicle and the registration certificate.
“Purchasing a vehicle is a significant financial commitment, whether it’s new or used,” Minister of Crown Corporations Ken Cheveldayoff said. “SGI is pleased to offer customers this convenient service to provide greater access to information and help them make informed decisions when purchasing a used vehicle.”
This new service supplements SGI’s existing Cross-Canada VIN Search, which for a fee of $10 provides information including whether a vehicle was registered elsewhere in Canada, if it can be registered in Saskatchewan, whether any inspections are needed, if Saskatchewan PST is payable and if it has been given a status such as rebuilt, stolen, non-repairable or a total loss. A Saskatchewan Damage Claims History Search will also be provided with the results. The cross-Canada search is not available online.
The Saskatchewan Damage Claims History Search can be accessed through SGI’s website, www.sgi.sk.ca, or from motor licence issuer websites under Online Services. Request forms for the Cross-Canada VIN Search are also available for downloading.
For more information on both the online and the Cross-Canada VIN Search, please contact SGI at 1-877-641-6555.
