The Association of Alberta Registry Agents and CARPROOF Launch Full-Scale Partnership Following Success of Pilot Program Aimed at Improving Road Safety

LONDON, ON--(Marketwired - November 03, 2015) - Following a successful two-month pilot, The Association of Alberta Registry Agents (AARA) is launching a full-scale rollout of its partnership with CARPROOF.

The AARA and CARPROOF have joined forces across the province to provide a free vehicle history report, regularly valued at approximately forty dollars, to any Albertan that registers for the AARA's e-reminder service when they register or renew their vehicle at a participating AARA office.

"We're very satisfied with the results of the pilot program and are excited to launch the full-scale partnership," says Pam Wilson, CEO at AARA. "CARPROOF has really stepped up to help increase safety and transparency in our industry. It's a win for the province, a win for AARA, a win for CARPROOF and a win for the public at large. The information they are providing, free of charge, lets customers know if their car has previously been in an accident, has an unfixed safety recall and more. Knowing about these issues is the first step to helping consumers drive safer cars and make informed decisions on vehicle purchases. We're proud to work with CARPROOF to make Alberta's roads safer."

Founded in 2000, CARPROOF continues to work toward its goal of enhancing transparency by providing data-driven insights to buyers and sellers of used cars.

"The pilot program has been a big success," says Ed Woiteshek, CARPROOF's President and CEO. "These free reports are making consumers more aware of information they should be accessing when purchasing a vehicle and during vehicle ownership. This program has already helped thousands of Albertans make their families safer by fixing safety recall issues."
