Automotive Data

MarketCheck's automotive data covers 6 years of inventory across the US and Canada. Each day we crawl over 50k dealer websites to deliver the most comprehensive and up-to-date depictions of market activity available anywhere. Individual listing records show year, make, model and trim, with VIN-level histories, showing the most recent time the car showed up online back to the earliest, with every change that occurred over that time. Car types include new, used, certified, lease, auction, and private seller. Equipment breakdowns give fuel type, engine size, transmission, color, driveline and body style with links back to the VDP of the source we obtained the information from. In addition to our car inventory data, we also provide several other powerful APIs for CRM marketing scrubs, basic VIN decoding, OEM build data, recalls, dealer profiles, and market activity. If you need something else, not already covered by one of our existing automotive APIs, let us know, we might be able to build it for you.

Autobot

Crawling is done using MarketCheck's proprietary web crawler, "Autobot." Autobot is a highly optimized crawling technology designed for large scale web harvesting. It utilizes advanced pattern recognition algorithms to navigate complex site structures and obtain online records with the highest fidelity and efficiency possible. This powerful technology has allowed us to achieve levels of unprecedented coverage, depicting market-wide activity for a number of diverse industries, not previously available through any other single-source provider. Autobot is a "polite crawler" that respects website instructions for bots and treads lightly to minimize the impact. If you have a website that you want to include all you need to do is make sure that your site allows the major search engines like Google or Bing. Assuming so, we'll take care of everything else. But if for any reason we might have overlooked your site just let us know and we'll be sure to add it to the list. Our developer community can help expose your product to a much wider audience, for FREE! Feel free to contact us with questions about the way that we crawl or the industries that we cover.

Who Uses MarketCheck

MarketCheck is used by a broad range of companies in a number of different ways. Our data powers search portals, chat bots and many different kinds of inventory provisioning tools. But MarketCheck data is also used in some less obvious ways too, for analyzing insurance claims, populating appraisal tools or locating open recalls and tracking down stolen vehicles. Our clients span the spectrum, from the very large to the very small, and we go out of our way to produce a product that encourages creativity and innovation. If you have questions about how your project might fit in, just give us a call. We can usually advise about the best approach for your particular type of use case and we're always happy to hear about the different ways people are using the data.

Integrating the Data

MarketCheck data is made available through easy-to-integrate APIs, bulk data dumps or custom reports according to your preference. Integrating the data is fast and easy and if you're familiar with APIs you can be literally up and running within just a few minutes. But if you need a little help along the way we're always ready to jump in. For bulk applications or special uses requiring a lot of pre-processing, you may want to receive the data as a feed rather than an API. In these instances, we can set up a data dump at whatever location and schedule you may require. We prefer FTP but if you need something special just let us know. For special reports or other one-off uses just let us know what you need and we can most probably create it.
