History-Based Value relies on information within the Vehicle History Report (VHR) to provide an accurate, VIN-specific value. Once you have bought a VHR, you must have a complete VHR for the History-Based Value option to appear.

There are some rare instances when History-Based Value is not able to provide a valuation for a vehicle. You can learn more about that here.

Most CARFAX Canada reports are ready to view within minutes. In some cases, you might see “Almost done…” or “Pending” appear on the report – meaning one or more of our data sources may not have sent the data for your vehicle yet. Your report will complete and automatically update once we have received a response from each of our data sources. At this point you can redeem your History-Based Value.
