Free Vehicle Factsheets from My Car Check

If you are in the process of looking for a used car, the free Vehicle Factsheet from My Car Check is an essential money saving tool to get you started. When buying a used car you need to know as much information about the car’s history as possible in order to make sure you are buying a quality vehicle.

“A free Vehicle Factsheet is useful when making a short-list of vehicles you are interested in. It allows you to confirm it is likely to be the car the seller says it is; but that is all”

1 in 4 used vehicles have a hidden history and a free check will not show this.

When you’ve found the perfect car, make sure you carry out a thorough check before you buy.

What does a free Vehicle Factsheet or free car check show and is that enough information to decide to buy a car?

Like many other free car checks available, the Vehicle Factsheet only shows basic information from the DVLA about the car you are interested in buying, plus MOT and tax information and the current value.

It is not enough information to buy a car.

We are able to instantly tell you what kind of car is registered to the licence plate number. So if you are looking at a VW Golf and our free car check returns a Transit van, you instantly know something isn't right and you should investigate further.

“A free car check is not enough information to make an important decision such as buying a used car. Before agreeing to buy any car make sure you complete a comprehensive car check first.”

If the free check doesn’t tell the whole story, how do I get a comprehensive car check?

When you have gathered a list of legitimate vehicles and you are ready to discuss buying one with a seller, it’s time to find out everything you can about the vehicle.

You should buy one of our low cost car checks that reveals much more information about the car’s history: information that could save you lots of time, money and effort.

“For only a few pounds you can avoid buying a potentially unsafe, illegal or debt-ridden vehicle, saving yourself a lot of time, money and effort, not to mention the unthinkable consequences of buying an unsafe car.”

Remember, before agreeing to buy any car make sure you complete a comprehensive vehicle check first. Don’t take the risk, it’s not worth it.
