Ed's Auto Mart
Ed's Auto Mart was opened by a young family, Ed and Kathy Jagt, and their new baby boy, Kevin, in 1987. It started by specializing in bulk wholesale purchasing and sales and after just a few years evolved into mostly retail sales and leasing. Ed's Auto Mart has been a proud, full-fledged member of UCDA (Used Car Dealer Association of Ontario) since the beginning of the business. Upholding the full business practices and code of ethics as prescribed by UCDA.
In 1990, we added HOJ car and truck rentals, specializing in new car daily, weekly, and monthly rentals. This relationship ended in 1998 due to HOJ Corporation being sold off and the retirement of the owner of HOJ franchise systems. Concurrently we still continued retail sales of quality used cars and trucks.
In 2013, the residents of Barrie voted us as Barrie's Best Used Car Dealership, and we would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for this award.
We are now proud to say that a second generation of Ed's family is working in the business and is dealing with our clients. We are also pleased to serve not only our first customers, but now also being able to sell used cars and trucks to the children and grandchildren of those that have helped bring our business to where it is today. We are honored to announce that Nicole, one of Ed's daughters, also received an award in 2013 as Barrie's Best Used Car Sales Person.
We would like to thank all that have helped our business progress and we look forward to many more years of quality sales to our valued clients.

But why is CarProof so superior to other internet-based vehicle history services? What makes it so special?
Real-Time Data: CarProof is electronically connected "live" to our data sources; meaning that their data is always current and not outdated. Other services purchase periodic data dumps that will often miss information that we capture.
Cross-Canada Guaranteed Lien Information: CarProof is the only service that provides consumers with guaranteed cross-Canada lien search information. CarProof is connected live to each provincial and territorial Registrar responsible for maintaining these records. Other vehicle history report companies, including Carfax, do not report any Canadian lien information. Further, only CarProof offers a guarantee regarding enforceable liens.
Accident Data: CarProof is an exclusively Canadian company which has access to critical accident data that will allow you to make a more informed decision when buying or selling a used vehicle.
Registration & Branding: CarProof is the only service that is available to consumers providing critical real-time registration and branding information. This information discloses in which province or territory a vehicle is and/or was registered and what brand is associated with the vehicle (stolen, salvage, rebuilt, non-repairable, normal, etc)
Full U.S. History: Provides consumers with data from one of the largest U.S.-based vehicle history services. Through CarProof's connection to Experian Automotive's 2-billion+ record database, all of our reports include the data you would get from other popular U.S.-based vehicle history report services, but we also include important auction declaration information that others do not.
Bilingual: CarProof is the only vehicle history report company to offer its entire website and vehicle history reports in both English and French.
You can purchase your own CarProof report from home. All you need is 17 character VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). You don'e need to be the owner of the vehicle for you to order a report and as soon as you place your order; CarProof works in real-time for the details on your vehicle and will send you an email with the link to your report. Simple as that.
