Finding the perfect used car or bike can be a stressful, challenging and daunting task, especially when you stand to potentially lose your hard earned savings by buying a cloned vehicle, a vehicle on finance, or one which may prove to require costly repairs soon after you take ownership due to poor past maintenance and upkeep by previous owners.
We’re here to give you peace of mind and help you make an informed decision when buying your next used vehicle by giving you an insight into a vehicle’s past, and revealing any known hidden history which may not always be as squeaky clean as the vehicle may appear.
Our car check has been designed with familiarity in mind, using the traffic light system and highly visible indicators to highlight and bring to your attention any minor and major issues a vehicle may have before you commit to buying it.

Our vehicle check
We hold records and data of all UK registered vehicles sourced directly from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), Police National Computer and other leading financial and automotive bodies.
Our ‘Gold’ standard fully comprehensive vehicle check not only checks finance held against a vehicle registration number and VIN, but also gives you invaluable insight in to the history of the car, van, bike (motorcycle) or other vehicle you’re looking to purchase; protecting you from motoring fraud and scams, as well as highlighting potential future costs of ownership.
What we check
Finance Check & Valuation
With our comprehensive car check, we check for any outstanding finance linked to the vehicle registration mark, as well as the vehicle identification number (VIN) and also give you a market (condition based) valuation of what we think you should be paying for it.
Stolen or Exported
We check with the DVLA if a vehicle has been exported and also check if its been registered as stolen on the police national computer (PNC) and motor insurance anti fraud theft register (MIAFTR), keeping you safe by helping you identify any vehicles which may have been cloned.
MOT History & Mileage
With data sourced directly from the DVLA, we check the full MOT history of a vehicle and verify its mileage with the National Mileage Register (NMR), flagging all instances where mileage may have been altered or rolled back (clocked).
