Track Cars That You’ve Worked On

Published by Nadeem Muaddi on March 25th, 2011

Like artists who keep track of who owns their works and where they’re displayed, auto trimmers can now trace the whereabouts of vehicles that they’ve worked on and get in touch with current owners. Check My Ride, a new social networking site, provides the service free of charge. All you need is the car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Check My Ride explains:

From your first car to your favorite car, to the car you might want to forget – they all make up your own personal vehicle history. Everyone has car stories to tell and now you can build, track and share your favorite car memories on CheckMyRide.com.

The site allows you to build a vehicle history timeline, use the “Where in the World is My Car?” tool, search and comment on other members’ vehicles and share the info you find on Facebook and Twitter. And while the creators of Check My Ride may not have had auto upholstery professionals in mind when creating the site, there’s no reason why it can’t be used to keep track of past projects.

Through Check My Ride, auto trimmers can connect with past clients, befriend potential new ones, acquire pics of old projects and solicit recommendations from satisfied customers. It’s also pretty fun to use – so why not give it a try?

  1. RETIRED…SITE WILL NOT WORK ON OLDER VIN NUMBERS. I BELIEVE THE VINS LAW CHANGED IN 1981 THE NTSHA CHANGED THE NUMBER OF NUMERALS USED IN THE NUMBERS, SO OLDER VEHICLES WITH SAY ELEVEN NUMBERS CANNOT BE FOUND. STOLEN OR OTHERWISE.
