Why should I do a vehicle check?
1 in 4 vehicles have a hidden history. You wouldn't buy a house without a survey, so why buy a car without using a vehicle checker? Vehicle checks, also known as car reg checks or vehicle provenance checks, reveal details about a vehicle's background that the seller might not know or not want to tell you.
