Vehicle checking services
Use of our vehicle history and vehicle data checking Services is subject to these Terms of Service.
By requesting vehicle information through our Services, you are making a legal offer to enter into a contract with us for the provision of the requested information subject to our Terms, which we are free to accept or decline at our discretion. A contract will only come into existence between you and us when we have provided you the information in response to your request. By accessing and using our vehicle checking Services, you warrant that you are a consumer, dealing in person, and that you are not acting on behalf of a business, or as a motor trader or motor dealer.
The information we provide you via our vehicle checking Services is strictly for your personal use only and is not to be relied upon or otherwise used by any third party. No such change will have retrospective effect. Our Services do not provide any information regarding the roadworthiness or general condition of any vehicle checked, nor will the check necessarily identify the use of a false vehicle registration mark or the fact that a vehicle has been “ringed” or “clocked”.
Unless otherwise stated, use of our vehicle checking Services and reliance on the information provided to you via these Services is strictly at your own risk, and you agree to indemnify us from any claim by you or any party for any loss or damage however caused. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy and we do not warrant and will not have any liability or responsibility for any vehicle data or information we provide you through our Services.
Where applicable when requesting vehicle information, it is your responsibility to complete all required fields fully and correctly, including but not limited to Vehicle Registration Mark, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN/Chassis number), V5C (log book) serial number and issue date. Failure to complete the information accurately may affect our ability to provide a prompt response.
Where our Services are provided to you at cost, we will provide vehicle information in response to your request following receipt of payment from you by displaying the results on screen. The vehicle history information we provide to you is for your own personal use. You must not sell, supply or otherwise disclose the information to any third party, but you may supply free of charge a printed copy of the Certificate of Vehicle History to any potential purchaser or the seller of the vehicle to which the information relates in the course of negotiating the purchase or sale of the vehicle. You agree not to change or delete any of the information that we have provided.
Vehicle information is provided where available. Performance and Environmental information may not be available for vehicles over 10 years old and for non passenger cars. Valuations are unavailable for some vehicle categories, e.g. Classic vehicles, Motorhomes, Heavy Commercials.
If you know or suspect that the information we provide you as part of our vehicle history check Service is incorrect or incomplete, you are responsible for notifying us of this by contacting us.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have selected the appropriate add-ons for the vehicle history check Services before committing to your purchase. You are responsible for paying the charges set out for the requested vehicle history check data including selected add-ons where applicable. We will not provide any information until the payment has been processed.
Due to the nature of our vehicle check Services and the fact that the requested information is made available to you immediately, we are unable to accept any cancellation from you once you have submitted payment to us and redeemed your check code. By accepting our Terms of Service and proceeding with your purchase, you acknowledge and confirm that you are waiving your right to a cancellation period and you are expressly requesting that we provide the Services and information to you with immediate effect meaning you will lose your right to cancel the Contract.
Vehicle check codes (vouchers)
Unless otherwise stated, vehicle check codes are valid for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase. After this time they cannot be redeemed nor refunded and are deemed void.
All purchased vehicle check codes are refundable within 14 days of purchase by submitting a request to us and providing proof of purchase. Refunds will only be issued on vehicle check codes that have not yet been redeemed. Any redeemed vehicle check code purchased as part of a multi-pack will be charged at full cost of a single full “Gold” vehicle check. Promotional and complimentary vehicle check codes have no monetary value and cannot be exchanged or refunded. Expired vehicle check codes are deemed void and cannot be exchanged, refunded or redeemed.
Our service to supply a registration begins immediately upon receipt of payment. Personalised registrations are ‘personalised goods’ which are reserved on your behalf when you place and confirm your order, as such we do not offer refunds or a returns policy on the sale of registrations.
By making a payment to reserve and secure a registration advertised on Cars GT, you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the registration and confirm your acceptance to the terms and conditions set herein. Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2014, all rights are lost when purchasing a registration and agreeing to the terms and conditions. No cancellations, nor returns can be granted and all orders are processed with immediate effect.
Please note that all registrations and transfer of registrations remain at all times subject to DVLA and government approval. Once the purchase of a registration has been authorised by the DVLA, we disavow, and are free from, all liabilities regarding the registration in question. Please note that the Secretary of State has rights to cancel a registration at any time without compensation.
Making an online payment on our website for a chosen registration does not guarantee its price or availability. If we are no longer able to fulfil your order or are unable to supply the registration mark paid for, any payments made shall be refunded in full, provided that the failure is through no fault of the customer. Our liability is strictly limited to a full refund only and we will not be held liable for any claims for damages, interest on money paid or any other expenses or losses incurred by the customer; whether or not we have been made aware of these items.
