AutoVIN® Celebrates Two Decades as the Leading Vehicle Inspection Provider

Employees Across North America Celebrate 20 Years of Innovation and Superior Customer Service

KAR Auction Services Inc. d/b/a KAR Global (NYSE: KAR) announces the 20-year anniversary of its business unit AutoVIN®, the largest provider of off-lease, field-based vehicle inspection services. AutoVIN employees across North America celebrate two decades of data-driven advancements and technology solutions that streamline the vehicle inspection process. AutoVIN gives OEMs, financial institutions and fleet lease companies best-in-class, independent, reliable vehicle inspections.    

“It’s hard to imagine now, considering its level of expertise in the inspection business, that AutoVIN started as a small team of inspectors with just one customer,” said Peter Kelly, KAR president. “From these humble beginnings, AutoVIN has grown to play a key role in the lease experience ecosystem, with hundreds of team members delivering superior service to our customers — leaders in the automotive industry.”

Over the past five years, global vehicle remarketing and technology services provider KAR Global has made meaningful investments in AutoVIN, including the 2015 acquisition of DataScan Field Services’ inspection business. Its integration of proprietary, industry-leading technology into the AutoVIN platform offers speed and innovation coupled with security and reliability. The platform’s self-inspection capabilities are benefitting customers beyond traditional remarketing by better connecting them with dealers and retail customers for end-of-lease inspections.

As part of the KAR Global family, AutoVIN plays an integral role in creating a seamless, end-to-end remarketing solution.   

“AutoVIN has been smart and agile, anticipating and meeting the needs of our client base and beyond. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our team,” said Kelly.
