Frequently Asked Questions

Why run a stolen car check?

You don’t want any unknowns when you’re purchasing a used car.

Running a free stolen check lets you see if and when the car you’ve been considering is marked as stolen. You can then get in touch with the police for full details.

What happens if you buy a stolen car?

You’ll need to turn it in to the police and then go through a painful and drawn-out process to claim your money back from the person who sold it to you. This can take a very long time and lots of legal paperwork to accomplish. However, you are entitled to a full refund.

Can’t you just give the car back to the seller?

Nope. That’s considered handling stolen goods and it could cause you a lot of legal grief. If you find out the used car you’ve bought is stolen, you must hand it in to the police and get a report number.
