4 Tips to REALLY Make Your Oregon License Plate Search Quick and Easy
Updated on October 24, 2017
If you’ve taken the time to jot down a specific Oregon license plate number, you’re obviously curious about the story behind it. But if you really want to make your search quick and easy, you need to follow these 4 tips:
What To Look For
1. Skip over the super-cheap prices
Nothing is more difficult than spending a whole lot more money than you intended because of hidden fees and other expensive surprises! That’s why it’s so important to see those super-cheap offers for what they really are — a trick.
Here’s how it works…
The vast majority of those super-cheap prices only apply to the search itself. Once it comes time to actually see the results, you’ll be forced to pay more. Or, you may be forced to sign up for a subscription that you don’t need or want. (After all, how many other Oregon license plate searches do you actually plan on doing?!) By the time all is said and done, you’ve been tricked into spending way more money than you thought.
The easiest way to avoid this nightmare is to look for a service that offers one-time fees. For example, here at Docusearch, we charge $39 for each of our Oregon license plate lookup, and that fee covers all of the work we have to do from start to finish. And, we’ll even promise to return your money if we can’t uncover the information that you need. That’s a promise you won’t see on most of those random websites!
2. Know what kind of information you can expect
If you know the exact details you can get from an Oregon license plate search, you’ll be able to weed through the sub-par services quickly and easily! As long as you’ve got a legitimate investigator, he should be able to take that license plate number and tell you all about the vehicle that is registered to it — including the make, model, model year, and VIN number. He should also be able to tell you about any lien holders that are associated with the vehicle.
What about details surrounding the owner of the license plate?
Unfortunately, state law prevents the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles from releasing any information about the license plate’s registered owner and address. So, if a particular search service tells you that they can uncover those details, they’re not being honest with you!
Even without the name and address information, this is some pretty sensitive information we’re talking about. As a result, the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles will only let members of law enforcement and licensed private investigators to access it. If you’re working with someone who doesn’t fit into either of these categories, he’ll never be able to give you the information you need!
Instant Results for an Oregon License Plate Lookup?
3. Don’t be impressed by instant results
If you’re trying to make your Oregon license plate lookup as quick and easy as possible, it makes sense to go with a service that can provide instant results, right? After all, nothing is quicker and easier than instant, right?!
Unfortunately, those instant results are the byproduct of a website’s database and a bunch of automated tools. The websites that can’t access the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles’ records are forced to create their own database. The problem? The vast majority of those databases are made with records that are several years old — meaning there’s a very good chance that they’re not even accurate anymore! Then, when you combine them with automated software that’s built to scan them and spit out results in a matter of seconds, you’re asking for trouble. After all, there’s no one actually checking the information before it’s given to you — meaning that it could be completely wrong!
4. Don’t wait longer than you have to
Just because you can’t rely on instant information doesn’t mean that you have to wait forever for the results of your Oregon license plate search. Here at Docusearch, our licensed investigators know how to make the search process as efficient as possible, without cutting any quality corners. As a result, we can do a proper search and get the information to you in 2-3 business days. And, because a licensed investigator is handling all of the work by hand, you’ll never have to worry about getting inaccurate or incomplete information.
