Carproof is by per VIN usage only. Even dealers have to pay per vin they run.
AutoCheck has monthly deals.

Don't even bother with Carproof. Waste of time and money.

Really...

Well, the three cars I checked, that I knew had major repairs ($8-$10K) all came back clean. Not one mention of any accidents.
Even after 3 years, nothing is reported. These were full insurance claims, police reports, and fixed at major repair shops (Family members cars).

Carproof showed it all.

Dealers use CarFax because it doesn't show anything, which makes the car look clean.

60% Accurate

Carfax relies on people notifying them, to update their database.

Carproof pulls the data, rather than waiting to be told.

You tell me which is better and more reliable?

You said Carproof is a waste of time and money. Which I disagreed with, Carproof is awesome and uses much better research. Did you mean Carfax is a waste of time and money?
Carfax, I agree 100000000 million percent is a waste of money, even on US cars, often! nothing beats a PPI.
