See what’s included in our full car history check

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.

Vehicle Mileage history

The mileage check will ensure you will have a verified source which shows the last known mileage. This will tie into the MOT history of the vehicle. Ensure you pay attention to this detail. This information is offered in a our £0.00 Free car check.

I checked out a van that I had seen for sale online and was keen to know all about it. I used the free check to start with, see what it came up with first before paying for a more in depth check. The colours of the van I was looking at didn't match what DVLA thought it was. I will leave well alone! I didn't go as far as paying for the advanced check, there didn't seem much point. Thank you very much Next Car Check and my thanks to the lovely Molly who helped me through the process. I will definitely use this company again. PS Promise to give you some money next time.
