Change of name to mytextcheck.com heralds new push in-car data text check service.
The battle to beat the car criminals who make billions of pounds a year endangering the lives of road users just got faster, cheaper and easier. mytextcheck.com is the new name for textcheck and in conjunction with the highly successful mytextcheck.com website, is already providing peace of mind for thousands of UK motorists on a daily basis.
More than 7.5m used cars are sold every year and it is estimated one in three cars on the road have something to hide yet only one in three people bother to check their vehicle's history. mytextcheck.com, the UK's first vehicle history text check service which enables buyers to get information on a car's history in seconds, anywhere in the UK, for as little as £3, has expanded its service.
mytextcheck.com is the only service of its kind offering details on any registered vehicle - including whether it is scrapped, stolen, an import, number of previous owners, date first registered and make, model and vehicle identity. Just by texting 'watch' then a space followed by the car registration number to 88600, prospective buyers can get the history of a vehicle in seconds and secure peace of mind before parting with their hard-earned cash.
"This is the cheapest service of its kind and could go a long way in helping to fight car crime in the UK and save unsuspecting buyers falling victim to fraud," said Roger Powell, General Manager of mytextcheck.com
"We can confirm the make, model and partial vehicle identification number on any vehicle within seconds which will allow buyers to find out if the car they are looking at has ever been scrapped or stolen or even cloned by comparing the VIN."
"We even offer to tell buyers if the car has been stolen and recovered none of our competitors do this."
"Each year some 25,000 dangerous cars are put back on the road, many of them sold to unsuspecting motorists by organised gangs and confidence tricksters making an estimated £3bn a year from the illegal trade."
"Criminals have been able to get away with it for so long because of the lack of information readily available to buyers. Now people can use their mobile phones to get the information they need within seconds."
