Pennsylvania Vehicle TitleWhen To Run a Pennsylvania Vehicle History Report

A Pennsylvania vehicle history report will also give you the PA vehicle title information you are looking for. The idea behind running a report like this is to verify a used vehicle before purchasing it. A vehicle history report can offer you accident information, limited owner information, safety issues, recalls and a full breakdown of all the major vehicle information you want to know about that used vehicle you are interested in purchasing. It will give a solid objective picture of the true value of the vehicle. Then with all that information you can take that and run the Blue Book Value for that used car, truck or SUV.

    I’m trying to find out the status of my title application. The Vin# is 1A9HS74A23A329116. I had sold this bike to a friend in NH which he received a title for. He did some work on the bike but, couldn’t handle the operation of the bike do to the amount of pot holes in NH. I bought the bike back from him and have applied for a title here in PA it’s been quite a while since I applied. The warm weather is here and I’m looking forward riding it.
    Please provide me with any information you can find. If you need any more information please contact me. Thank You for your help.

    I bought two new scooters, and all of the paperwork for both were processed at the same time. I have received the title for one of the scooters, but still not the second, and ten days have passed. Is there a way to determine what is happening with the title of the second scooter?

    1. squarryadministrator says:

      Karen, do these scooters have a 17 digit VIN associated with them? We can only lookup Pennsylvania vehicle information if you have this information

      1. Karen Brig says:

        I actually figured out who to call this morning. I did give the person with whom I spoke the VIN and she told me that the second scooter was started processing yesterday, 8-17-21. The date that we completed the paperwork was mid June. I think it seems odd that the paperwork for both, submitted at the same time, were processed months apart. I asked about it and she said that it isn’t odd. Hmm. What do you think? Many thanks.

    I work at a NYS dealership, we took a vehicle in on trade with a PA title and paid off the lien. We had to eventually go for a duplicate title and I’m just wondering roughly how long it would take to receive duplicate title. Also is there anyway to look up the status of a PA title and when it was issued? Thanks!
