why do you need a history check?

You should never buy a car without checking it’s history first. There are many hidden historical issues that could cause issues for you after you buy. For example, say you buy a car that has been previously stolen; if the police come to collect it as evidence of a crime, you’ll be parting ways with your car and your money.

Or, say your car has been written off in the past; that will have a knock-on effect on its value. Or, you might need to double check the VIN to ensure the engine hasn’t been cloned or the mileage hasn’t been tampered with.

One in four cars have a hidden history, unpaid finance, or have been stolen or written off. It’s essential that you have all the information in order to protect yourself from financial pitfalls. Not only that, but you’ll be protecting yourself from the potential dangers of an unsafe vehicle.
