Automobiles are pretty expensive. And if you run into legal trouble (tickets, violations or road accidents) or your vehicle breaks down, it’s going to cost you a lot of money. Sometimes you pay a fine or face a legal hurdle simply due to the lack of proper documents. Maybe you lost the papers somewhere or don’t remember where you kept it. Even in case of a breakdown, maybe the damaged part was under warranty such as recently replaced wheels, battery, tire, motor, spark plugs. But you may have to pay the full amount if you do not have those all-important warranty cards or receipts.
You should have instant access to important automobile-related documents whenever they are needed. A simple and easy way to ensure that your automobile-related documents are safe and organized is to scan and store them online. This way, you can access them anytime from anywhere. Storing your documents online eliminates the risk of them being lost, trashed or misplaced. You can also store them on your desktop or laptop, but it has certain limitations. You can’t access your documents if you are away from your desktop. And desktop storage makes your data vulnerable to theft, fire or technical problems. None of these issues occur when you store them online, especially if you can find a site that provides you secure online storage. All the better, if this service is available for free.
To get you started, here is the list of some of the most common automobile-related documents that can be scanned and stored online. You can also add more documents as you think of them.
- Bill of sale
- Proof of insurance
- Vehicle history report or CarFax report
- Maintenance and repair records
- Service contracts
- Loan documents
- Tickets and other violations

Chicago-based Wendy Rieck has been using Finovera to back up her automobile, banking and academic documents for almost a year. Wendy says she was tired of losing or misplacing important papers. As a school teacher and mother of three, keeping papers organized and easily accessible was a challenge for her. Wendy shared with us that there had been several instances when her little daughter would scribble on a paper or tear it, unaware how important it was.
But things have been a lot easier since she discovered Finovera. Wendy has created separate folders for each type of document. Whenever she has a new important document that will be needed in the future, the first thing she does is scan it in and upload to Finovera.
