Mycarcheck.com, the fastest growing vehicle data check in the UK, report that along with it's mobile check service, mytextcheck, they have performed over 1 million vehicle data checks to the general public over the last 12 months (up to September 2009).
"This underlines what we have been saying for many years", said Roger Powell, General Manager, "that vehicle data checking should be available easily and instantly to all prospective car purchasers, not just the Motor Trade."
"When we came into the retail market in 2005 the price for a single vehicle data check was over £40.00, a lot of money for anyone and particularly for a student or first time buyer."
"Consequently these purchasers were simply not checking and at risk from purchasing a seriously written off vehicle that could have been poorly repaired and put back onto the road (1 in 7 of all cars on the road are considered a Total Loss), putting themselves and their families at risk, or even a Stolen vehicle where you stand to lose the vehicle and all the money you paid."
"We charge only £3.95 for our online check at mycarcheck.com, and as our sales figures show we are not only making vehicle purchase a safer transaction for all but an affordable one", said Powell.
mycarcheck.com can also reveal if a vehicle has been stolen/recovered (competitors do not) - if you do not know this the vehicle may have been used to transport drugs and only be discovered at a check point or routine Police stop.
mycarcheck.com also protects against Outstanding Finance, Stolen, Total Loss, False Mileage Readings, Valuation, VIN Checks.
"We are proud to say that we have saved thousands of consumers the pain and worry of buying a Stolen Vehicle or even worse an unsafe one that could be putting their lives at risk."
