Vehicle History Check

Did You Know:
1 In 3 Cars Has A Hidden History?

It is important that you avoid buying a vehicle with a hidden history, therefore, we recommend that you have it checked to make sure that it has not been reported as a stolen vehicle or reported as Code 3.

Numbers to look out for:

  • The vehicle registration number (VIN) and the 17 digit chassis number.
  • The engine number.

Inspections and Valuations

Choosing the right kind of vehicle requires much more than just a keen eye. Make sure it is as good as it looks, by booking a comprehensive inspection through the AA, before you part with your money. A qualified independent vehicle inspector will carry out a full bumper to bumper inspection, a thorough road test, and issue you with a detailed report. If serious problems are found the report may recommend that you do not purchase, or if only minor faults are highlighted, you’ll be in a much stronger position to negotiate a lower price or insist on repairs.
