Write off check
When a vehicle has been in an accident or damaged, the cost of the repair may exceed the value of the vehicle itself. It is therefore written off by insurers. This can affect the value of the car – which will inevitably give you choice to purchase or not. Many car owners omit information about a car history. Write off information is available for just £7.99
Outstanding Finance Check
It is illegal to sell a car with outstanding finance as it is legally owned by the lender. Prior to any sale of a car, the balance of the vehicle, along with any outstanding fees or other agreements must be settled and paid in full. In the event you end up purchasing a car on finance, you will be liable to pay the lender back. Available for just £7.99 with a Next Car Check.
Stolen Car Check
The report will show you information on if a vehicle has been stolen, when it was stolen as well as contact information for the police if available. This information is offered for just £7.99.
