A vehicle history reporting company makes one of their services free to consumers due to flooding from Hurricane Sandy.

Carfax is warning car buyers and sellers about the possibility of flooded vehicles from the east coast being cleaned up and resold.

In a press release, Carfax said that they will work with law enforcement, state agencies, and private companies to ensure that all of these damaged vehicles are properly branded.

Due to the likely influx of flooded vehicles, Carfax is offering flood damage information in their database free of charge. You can access their flood damage database at flood.carfax.com.

The group offers some tips to potential car buyers on ways to check for flood damage, including looking for signs of water damage on the inside of the car, including water lines in the trunk or engine compartment, rusted bolts underneath seats, condensation on the instrument panel, or brittle wires under the dash.
