USVINData.com Data Suggests an Upturn in Used Vehicle Sales

MAR VISTA, Calif. -- Since the pandemic began, a year ago, searches on leading vehicle records site, USVINData.com have fallen as the used car sales market has fallen away but the latest figures show a rise in searches which is good news for used vehicle sellers.

When the pandemic and associated restrictions hit in March 2020, searches on USVINData.com fell by over 70%, and although they began to rise again throughout the year, they didn't get back to 2019 levels. This has broadly reflected trends seen across the used vehicles sales industry.

Since the start of 2021, USVINData.com has seen vehicle searches on the site rise month by month and returning to almost pre-pandemic levels in the last report. This rise is forecasted to continue and rise to around 20% above pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2021. This trend is expected to be followed by used vehicle sales as the industry usually follows the trends seen on the site.

Overall, US car sales rose by 8.7% in Q1 of 2021 and March 2021 sales are expected to be 50% higher than they were in March 2020 (*NOTE 1).

A spokesperson for USVINData.com comments, "We find that our search figures are usually in line with used vehicle sales trends so when our figures drop, this usually means that overall sales go down and vice versa. The fact that we have seen three months of continued increases in searches means that more people are looking to purchase a new vehicle and this will hopefully see an increase in used vehicle sales.

"2020 was a hard year for everyone in the automotive industry but this positive trend is great news and hopefully bodes well for the rest of 2021"

Using a vehicle checking site is vital when purchasing a used car or truck as you can't normally see any real problems just by looking at it. In addition to this, you should always ask the seller why they are selling it, their answer should make sense. You should also ask to see the VIN number on the driver's side door and the dashboard, if they don't match up there is a serious problem. If possible, take the car for a 30-minute test drive, this will give it time to warm up and also show up any problems. Finally, you should always ask a mechanic to check the vehicle over if you can.

USVINData.com was created to ensure that Americans could access all available information on a used car before they made the decision to buy, making sure that they don't get ripped off.

The company started off by offering VIN checks which only provide basic data, but over time have developed their data search systems to be able to now offer a full report into the history of a vehicle. With this report, you can find out whether the has been in any major accidents or totaled. It also provides information on fire and flood damage and even lets you know if the vehicle has been reported stolen. Best of all you even get an estimate of how much you should be paying for the vehicle.

All of this information is vital for anyone purchasing a used car or truck. Even if you are not buying a top-of-the-range car you want to get good value for money and not something that will break down shortly after you buy it. With this report, you will know exactly what you are buying and end up with a car or truck you can be proud of.

American’s Top Reason for Accessing Driving Records Is to Check A Partner’s Record

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Checking the driving records of a spouse or partner is the main reason that people have been using a leading driving records website. DMV.US.org, the leading site for driving records and data, has carried out research into the main reasons that people are using the site, and checking the driving records of a partner has come out tops.

Other main reasons that people are using the site include checking their own records and reconnecting with a long-lost friend.

Some more unusual responses included trying to find the father of a child, looking up the previous owner of a pet, and one person even tried to search for information on President Trump!

The top 10 list of reasons for using DMV.us.org are:
1. Checking a spouse or partner
2. Checking themselves
3. Reconnecting with a long lost friend or relative
4. Checking on new neighbors when moving house
5. Checking a new person in their lives - a friend or lover
6. Checking celebrities or sportspeople
7. Searching people with the same name as them
8. To track down the father of their child!
9. To find the previous owner of a pet
10. Researching the owner of land.

Using Driving Records is a great way to find out information on a variety of subjects. You can use them to search yourself to make sure that the correct information is in the public domain, to reconnect with friends you may have lost touch with, and even to look up your neighbors if you have concerns about their driving!

DMV.us.org was created to provide driving records to commuters all over the United States. The site provides an extensive database of information on driving records. The only information required is a name and location and the site can generate a report that provides all driving data available.

Millions of Americans used DMV.us.org last year to research their driving records. Compared to other driving history providers, the site's database supplies more information than just speeding offenses. DMV.us.org offers a comprehensive driving report for each customer that covers name, address, incarceration records, suspensions or revocations, and more!

Appalachian Gap Distillery Becomes Country’s First Climate Neutral Certified Distillery

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- In response to the urgency of the climate crisis, Appalachian Gap Distillery is delighted to announce that it is officially Climate Neutral Certified. All of its brands -- AppGap, Split Spirits, and Vermont Creemee Liqueurs -- proudly share the certification.

"Doing the right thing has always been at the core of who we are across all of our brands," says distillery co-founder Lars Hubbard. "We love that our spirits are made from grains sourced as close as possible to the distillery and support our local farmers." These spent grains are then turned into clean power at a local biodigester, which supports the local green economy.

Lars adds that "when people come visit our tasting room, they pass six solar arrays that provide the majority of our electricity and symbolize our commitment to sustainability." These panels help to minimize emissions from direct operations.

The carbon footprint measurement process revealed there was an opportunity to reduce emissions from powering the steam system, which uses natural gas. As a result, Appalachian Gap Distillery has already made the switch to using renewable natural gas derived largely from local farms to further reduce its direct emissions.

"We've done a tremendous amount to make energy efficient decisions to keep our operation's' climate footprint small," says co-founder Chuck Burkins. "In order to give our customers the confidence of knowing that each bottle is truly carbon neutral from grain to glass, we rigorously measured emissions within our supply chain and offset those we cannot control directly."

Appalachian Gap Distillery offset 59 metric tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent by supporting nature-based projects like encouraging sustainable agriculture and protecting important ecosystems. In order to further reduce supply chain emissions, the distillery has switched to using 100% recycled glass bottles that have not had their natural greenish hue bleached with harmful chemicals and high heat processes.

Will Drucker, AppGap's Head of Hustle, was drawn to join Appalachian Gap Distillery because of the distillery's commitment to sustainability and the exceptional quality of their spirits. "It was evident that they adhered to the highest standards of quality and took great care throughout the entire spirit production process, and that this care extended to the natural environment and the community as a whole," says Will.

"Appalachian Gap Distillery and our other Climate Neutral Certified brands are leading the global shift to a net-zero economy by doing what all companies should be doing immediately: measuring, offsetting, and reducing their carbon emissions," says Climate Neutral CEO, Austin Whitman. "Our label helps consumers identify these brands. It's a recognizable and trusted symbol that turns everyday purchases into meaningfully positive climate action."

Climate Neutral's certification is based on internationally recognized standards for carbon measurement, neutrality, and offsetting. Each brand must measure Scope 1, 2, and 3 cradle-to-customer greenhouse gas emissions for the prior calendar year. Then a brand must buy verified carbon credits to offset its entire footprint. This directs investment into critical carbon sequestration projects such as forest conservation, renewable energy, and carbon capture technologies. Finally, brands commit to a reduction action plan to cut future emissions within a 12-24 month timeline, reporting progress on those plans annually. All of the brand's data is publicly available on Climate Neutral's website. The process is repeated annually when companies must re-certify.

ABOUT CLIMATE NEUTRAL

Climate Neutral is a nonprofit organization working with brands and consumers to decrease global greenhouse gas emissions. The label, Climate Neutral Certified, is the universal standard in carbon neutrality. It is earned by brands who measure, offset, and reduce their entire carbon footprint, making it easy for consumers to shop with concern for the global climate.

It features the same simple and uncluttered interface, but it is now localized in nine more languages: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese.

The First Rafting Trip of the 2021 New River Gorge National Park Rafting Season at ACE Adventure Resort

OAK HILL, W.Va. -- ACE Adventure Resort kicked off the New River Gorge National Park rafting season with their first rafting trip on Friday, March 26, 2021. Last year brought a welcomed increase in outdoor recreational activities such as rafting, climbing, mountain biking, as more Americans turned to outdoor vacations and reduced or eliminated foreign travel in response to the global pandemic.

Also, late in 2020, legislation was passed that designated the New River Gorge as our country's newest national park. Due to these factors, ACE Adventure Resort and other area outfitters expect to see an even greater increase in guest visitation than last year.

Bryant Baker, a River Operations Manager and Raft Guide at ACE Adventure Resort is eager to kick off the season: "Springtime is always exciting! The weather starts changing, the days get a little longer, and we all get psyched to take folks out on some amazing whitewater in the Gorge. As far as the national park status goes, I think it will pique more interest for people who have yet to visit the New River Gorge, but there are plenty who have already experienced how special this place is."

He adds, "The 2021 rafting season is about to kick off and we're excited to facilitate world class whitewater adventures in the country's newest national park, sharing this place with both first timers and those excited to come back for more."

ACE is looking forward to a booming rafting season and is excited about introducing whitewater rafting to a wider audience. In preparation for the summer an aerial park has been constructed as well as completing renovations to the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill, expanding the ACE Adventure Waterpark, building additional hiking trails, and campsites. ACE Adventure Resort looks forward to welcoming new guests and the first rafting trip of the season.

For additional information on rafting trips visit https://aceraft.com/ or call 800-787-3982.
