Free Car Checks from My Car Check

If you are in the process of looking for a used car, the free car checker service 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 car check 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 car check show and is that enough information to decide to buy a car?

Like many other free car checks available, it only shows basic information from the DVLA, about the car you are interested in buying.

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.
