Vehicle Information

Imagin8 offers the most comprehensive database of vehicle information in South Africa.

Reg to VIN

Use our extensive database to identify vehicles by VIN or Registration number. If it’s on the roads, there’s a 99% chance it’s on our database.

We offer two different sources of information for Registration to VIN lookups so that you can identify the VIN, make and model of a vehicle accurately simply by using the Registration number as input.

All of our data services are available via our online eValue8 Broker Portal, or via API so you can integrate these services into your own software applications.

Priced from R4.50 per call.

VIN to Reg

Our VIN to Reg lookup offers one of the most extensive match rates in South Africa. Using a VIN number as input, we return the vehicle description as it appears on the vehicle’s license disc. Our extensive intelligent API’s can narrow down the list of possible model matches to help you identify the exact vehicle model in your search if our own databases can’t provide a one to one match. Our database is growing in intelligence daily, and our coverage is the most comprehensive in South Africa.
