Car History Checks – Why are they Important?

To some, especially those who have carried out a Car History Check, this will seem like a ridiculous question.

Would you buy a house without purchasing a survey….my guess is 99% of people wouldn’t dream of buying a house without paying a few hundred pounds for a survey to check their new house wasn’t going to fall down. Those that don’t carry our a survey are quite frankly fools!

The same applies to buying a used car. Often the only thing you will buy in your lifetime more expensive than a car is your house, yet very little consideration is given to the background of a car. You may be spending five, ten or even twenty thousand pounds on a second hand car. Don’t you think it is worth spending an extra £10 to check you’re not quite literally throwing your hard earned cash away.

People who are selling a car are only legally obliged to tell you if the car has been an insurance write off if they are aware of it, but that is difficult to prove. If you ask the question has the car been involved in an accident many sellers will reply “not to my knowledge” their get out of jail free card.

Don’t take a chance, with your money. Make sure you carry out a car history check on any car you are thinking of purchasing. HPI are the leading provider of Car History checks and we can’t stress highly enough the importance of protecting yourself against unscrupulous sales people

A useful, free tool is an MOT check provided by the government. Here you can enter the V5 (log book) Document Reference Number and the vehicle registration number to check all the previous recorded MOT's. This may help you identify any mileage discrepancies.  Government MOT Information.
