It's essential to establish if a car has been involved in a serious crash. If it has, for safety you'll need to know if any damage was repairable. Also previous write-offs generally cost a lot less than a non-accident damaged car.

During the last 90 days we found that more than 12,100 vehicles we ran checks against had write-off records that a buyer may not have known about.
