      • REVS Check says:

        If you are looking for a REVS Check for a VIN number or Chassis number, give VINNER REVS Check a try, reports are only $9.90. It’s completely optimised for mobile and supports PayPal along with credit card payments (including Amex) via a secure Australia payment gateway. For those older cars that are pre-1989 you can request a chassis reports, and if you are planning on buying a boat you can also perform a HIN check if needed. VIN reports also cover all other vehicles (including trailers, caravans, 4×4, trucks etc) for any other types of vehicles you are considering for your trip.

    5. The website is ok if you’re at a desktop computer, but it’s a very slow & clunky process on mobile phones. Plus they don’t even have proper validation when you enter the VIN – you could accidentally enter a O or I instead of 0 or 1, and they would let you waste your money & pay for the search. I went to – quick, easy, & didn’t have to enter credit card details either as they have PayPal.
