Is A Car Check Really Necessary?

According to an independent car checker survey:

  • 1 in 3 cars has a hidden history ranging from stolen to clocking
  • 1 in 3 vehicles has an active finance contract or loan against it
  • 1 in 4 vehicles gets a number plate change
  • 1 in 11 automobiles has a mileage anomaly
  • Thousands of insurance write-off cars are available for bargain daily in the UK market

If you buy a car with a stolen marker or having an active finance contract, you will have to hand it back to the original owner. Unfortunately, you might not be able to retrieve the money you have paid for the vehicle.

Besides, we are sure you do not want to buy a scrapped, cloned, or clocked vehicle in the UK. For just £9.95, you can put your mind at ease. Not a bad deal to save thousands of pounds, is it?

What makes our reg check service different from our Competitors?

Our focus on providing unprecedented support to our customers at the industry-cheapest price is what drives us every day. We have designed our car check service keeping in view the buyer's needs while offering the maximum protection. In the 21st century, thieves and dishonest sellers have many tools to fool you. But do not worry! We understand all the ways they use to scam you and cover every aspect with our car check UK.

We cover all critical data checks, and we source data directly from the official or most trusted agencies:

Police Stolen: We query Police National Computer and MIAFTR (Motor Insurance Anti-Fraud and Theft Register) to find out the stolen status.

Outstanding Finance: We ask Experian, finance houses, and logbook loan firms to know a vehicle's unsettled loan status.

Insurance Write-off: We source data from the Motor Insurance Anti-Fraud and Theft Register (MIAFTR) to find out the write-off status of a vehicle.

Mileage Anomaly: We use various sources such as manufacturers, dealer groups, owners, DVLA, and BVRLA - British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association, to detect mileage discrepancies.

DVLA Checks: The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) offers us a lot of information for a fee. We tell you:

  • How many previous owners/keepers the car records on the logbook?
  • Did the DVLA mark the car scrapped?
  • How many plate changes has the car had, and are there outstanding issues on the old plate?
  • Does the car have import or export status?
  • Is the car displaying the correct mileage?
  • Does the VIN/Chassis number on the vehicle go with the one on the V5C/Logbook?

Expect all this and so much more when you buy our car checker service.

Which car check is most suitable for me?

It depends on the stage you are in your vehicle purchase. During your initial research, we advise you to take our Free Car Check. If you are close to shortlisting a vehicle, we recommend taking our Basic Check. Finally, if you have made up your mind about a car, we suggest you run our Full Car Reg Check.
