A free car check is not enough information to make an important decision such as buying a used car.

For extra peace of mind one of our more comprehensive checks can be bought within the app. For only a few pounds you can avoid buying a potentially un-safe, stolen or debt-ridden vehicle, saving yourself time, money and effort, not to mention the unthinkable consequences of buying an unsafe car. Don’t risk it. Check it first.

For a fee, via in-app purchases you can buy:

History Check

£2.99 per vehicle
