Used Vehicle Check

Used Vehicle Check


You must purchase a USED VEHICLE CHECK if you are thinking of buying a used vehicle

A car, motorbike, motor home, JCB digger, lorry, van, quad bike etc. you get the picture ~

The vehicle registration number can be checked online using one of the vehicle data check services listed below, you should do this before you buy the vehicle or hand over any cash! If you have found your dream car and can't wait leave a deposit and agree a deal subject to the car being 'all clear' this way you get your deposit back if something horrid turns up in the used vehicle check.

With the cost of fuel these days and full used car check being available for only a few pounds online it's better to check a few cars from home before leaving. Make sure you jot down the registration numbers, you can log in later with the VIN number to activate any indemnity insurance/guarantee. The VIN number (Vehicle Identification Number) is the long number stamped into the chassis usually under the bonnet or corner of windscreen.
