Carfax deepens partnership with UCDA


Carfax Canada and the Used Car Dealers Association of Ontario (UCDA) have expanded their partnership to give used-car buyers and sellers UCDA claims reports.

Every Carfax vehicle history report purchased by UCDA member dealers comes with a UCDA accident claims report at no additional cost. This follows other recent enhancements by Carfax Canada, such as adding damage claim amounts from Canadian insurers to the Carfax database and access to a cross-Canada lien search.

“Canadian car buyers expect dealers to provide as much vehicle information as possible,” said Warren Barnard, executive director of the UCDA.

“One-click access to the Carfax and UCDA reports enables our members to use both reports to help them meet provincial compliance regulations when buying and selling vehicles. Strengthening our already successful relationship with Carfax Canada is another step in safeguarding UCDA member dealers and their customers throughout Canada.”

Any dealer in Canada is eligible to apply for UCDA membership and obtain a UCDA claims report with every Carfax Report they run, including the new bilingual Carfax Report, at no extra cost.

“We're excited to add this valuable member benefit as we continue growing our relationship with the UCDA,” said Jon Arnett, managing director for Carfax Canada.

“Access to trusted information is crucial in building buyer confidence and selling more used cars. We look forward to finding more ways our organizations can work together to benefit both dealers and consumers.”

The UCDA represents 4,800 independent and franchised dealers in Ontario. The association celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014.
