Frequently Asked Questions

Why buy a vehicle history check?

Vehicle history checks tell you key information about the car you’re considering. From emissions to fuel consumption, you don’t want any surprises in day to day runnings. Beyond that, you want to avoid costly errors like taking on a car with existing finance. You’ll own any debt once those papers are signed. And it can be a real hassle in court to sort out after the fact.

Who should buy a partial check versus full vehicle history check?

If you’re buying a car from a dealership, you can agree in writing that they’ll settle any outstanding debts at point of sale. But if you’re buying from a private person, the process is less transparent. There’s no need to take the seller at their word. For under a tenner, you can have complete confidence in your new purchase.

What is a free vehicle history check good for?

Use a free check before you go to look at your potential new vehicle. It will give you some basic information to let you decide if it’s worth your time. Once you’ve inspected the vehicle and had a test drive, you’ll likely want to purchase a full or partial check to cover off any loose ends.

What does the £30,000 Data Guarantee mean?

We’re serious about data accuracy. If something is wrong in our report, we’ll cover you from any damages resulting from the inaccuracy up to £30k. All the more reason to request a full check. Total data confidence.

What’s included in the vehicle history report?

Partial and full reports both include records of write-offs, stolen, scrapped, plate changes, colour changes & more. The full report package also includes finance debts and a £30k data guarantee. Here’s an example of what your report would look like.
