We are sure you have heard the adage “There is no such thing as a free lunch,” so forget about a free HPI check. HPI Ltd charges you to get the vehicle history report as any other car check provider in the UK. That said, CarAnalytics, as well as a few other vehicle history providers, offer free car checks. How? Because we get that for free. However, the data for which we have to pay to third parties, we have to charge for that.
