MyCarCheck.com customers get special discount on a Winter Inspection at any Halfords AutoCentre, plus advice on buying a used car for Xmas.
MyCarCheck.com, the UK’s No.1 vehicle provenance website, has saved millions of people from making an expensive used car mistake. As part of its latest seasonal promotion it is now offering customers a better than half price deal on a Winter Inspection at any Halfords Autocentre, as well as some top tips on buying a used car for Xmas.
Roger Powell, Divisional Head at CDL Vehicle Information Services Ltd (which owns MyCarCheck.com), commented: “A Halfords AutoCentre Winter Inspection is already great value at just £29.95 for a thorough check of your anti-freeze, battery, lights, wipers, oil, tyres, air con system and more - all the bad weather essentials. However, a special deal for MyCarCheck.com customers means they can take advantage of this valuable service at an incredibly attractive rate. The especially harsh winters over the last two years have really opened peoples’ eyes to the importance of being properly prepared for the onset of icy conditions. Treating your car to a Winter Inspection could prove to be a very wise investment, so visit MyCarCheck.com for further details.”
Giving some great advice for those in the market for a four wheeled Xmas present, Mr Powell continued: “The run up to Xmas is traditionally a slow time for car sales, so there is an opportunity for buyers to haggle hard and grab a bargain. Anyone treating themselves or a loved one to a used car for Xmas would do well to spend a few pounds at MyCarCheck.com to confirm whether their potential pride and joy has ever been scrapped, stolen or clocked, or, as is quite common these days, whether there is any outstanding finance still owed. Our prices start at just £4.95, which is not a lot to ask for complete peace of mind.”
In 2010, MyCarCheck.com and MyTextCheck.com delivered 2.2m consumer checks, which equates to 27% of all vehicles that changed hands in the UK. Parent company CDL performs over 14m vehicle data checks a month for companies including AutoExpress, CompareTheMarket, Tesco Bank and WhatCar. It uses up-to-the-minute information from the Police National Computer (PNC), the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and major finance houses including Lloyds TSB.
Car history checks used to cost over £40 and MyCarCheck.com has really shaken up the industry by charging just £4.95. Its UK-based call centre has experts in cars, light commercial vehicles and motorcycles. They can confirm in seconds whether a vehicle has ever been scrapped, stolen or written-off, the last recorded mileage, the number of former owners and much more.
