Why check a car?

You can never be sure a car is all it appears to be. So a car check can reassure you. Plus it could save you a lot of money.

A quarter of the cars we check turn out to have outstanding loans against them. And did you know that the finance company can demand the money from you as the new owner?

If the car has previously been involved an accident and the insurers have written it off, the car shouldn't be on the road and you wouldn't be able to get insurance to drive it.

These are just a few reasons why a car check is crucial if you're buying a used car.

It will help you build a picture of the car's history so you can make an informed choice. The mileage check is run against the National Mileage Register, set up to help reduce fraud,. As this is a voluntary scheme, mileage may not be available for every vehicle. Ensure you check documents such as service history, MOT certificates or by contacting previous keepers.
