Motor Industry News
Unbelievably 1 in 7 of all currently registered vehicles in the UK have been written off at some point in their history. Many of these vehicles (also termed as a Total Loss and Write Off) should have been crushed but an alarming number find their way back onto our roads.
The majority of these previously accident damaged/repaired vehicles look absolutely fine - many even look better than they should due to the recent re-spray - but these vehicle could disintegrate if they are involved in another collision, making them a potential life-threating risk.
It is estimated that over 4m repaired vehicles are on the roads and many of the drivers would be potentially uninsured unless they had informed their insurance company when they took out their policy. And, of course, the vast majority of owners are unaware that they have been sold a 'dodgy' motor.
Major accident records and details of any mainland UK registered vehicle can be checked using www.mycarcheck.com, where you can access Insurance, Police and the DVLA scrapped register for less than £10.00 and the reply is instant.
