CarProof Vehicle History Reports (stylized CARPROOF) is a Canadian provider of vehicle history reports used by consumers and businesses when purchasing pre-owned vehicles.


CarProof was created in 2000 and is based in London, Ontario. Paul Antony, the co-founder and Chairman of the Board at CarProof, recognized through his experience running a car dealership that no service existed for a cross-Canada lien search on used cars. He, along with a team of founders, created CarProof to provide Canadians who are buying or selling used cars with accurate details about a vehicle’s history as well as lien information.[1] The President and CEO of CarProof is Ed Woiteshek.[2] Recent news releases indicate that CarProof is creating and launching new products and is poised to become a multi-product company.[3] In December 2015, CarProof was purchased by IHS Inc for 650 million.[4]

Product and Services[edit]

CarProof offers two different vehicle history reports, which are available in French and English: CarProof Verified and CarProof Claims.

CarProof Verified is the most comprehensive report available in Canada. It includes: accident data, unfixed safety recalls, import and export data, registration and branding information, full U.S. history and lien information. [5]

CarProof Claims is a good choice for consumers that already know the vehicle’s lien information. This report does not include lien information but does include: accident data, unfixed safety recalls, import and export data, registration and branding info and full U.S. history. [6]

Beginning in 2013, CarProof has also been working on expanding into the insurance and claims industry to provide services and products to these sectors.[7]


In addition to being used by consumers, CarProof is also a resource for Canadian car dealers, major car manufacturers, lenders and insurers, provincial governments, auto auctions, law enforcement agencies and the Canadian Automobile Association.[8]

In August 2013, CarProof announced that it sold a minority stake to Hellman & Friedman, a San Francisco-based private equity investment firm. As a result of this partnership, CarProof plans to grow the company and continue expansion plans into new markets.[9]
