Free vehicle history check

A free history check is carried out before all inspections to ensure the vehicle is free from theft, insurance write off or fraud.

 

This detailed history check includes our unique My Salvage Check which accesses salvage auction data within the UK to ascertain if a vehicle has been written off within the last 5 years. A recent investigation by BBC's Rip Off Britain television program  has uncovered significant gaps in the official database used by consumers and dealerships to check second hand cars' history and estimated that 80,000 write offs a year (around 12% of the total for sale) could be repaired and put back on the road, with new owners having no idea of their car's chequered past.

Not only can this information save you from purchasing an unrecorded accident damaged vehicle from an assumed trusted source. Our own case study also details a similar case found at a BMW main dealer. Click here to read this case study

 

In cases where information is available it can be used to build a pre inspection report for clients knowingly purchasing repaired accident damaged vehicles. 

 

Any signifcant adverse infromation will be reported to you prior to us inspecting the vehicle to allow you the option to abort the inspeciton should you wish to. Sourced data will be referenced within your online inspection report.

 

If you wish to add any additional checks to your inspection this can be done at the booking stage.
