With almost 30 years of auto sales experience, we find that most car buyers feel uncertain buying a vehicle that is going to be a reliable, sound investment. CarVeto provides a number of services that help motorist make a wise purchase.
The service begins with a free car check that instantly loads vehicle information, road tax and mot status and the costs to tax, export status and the askMID motor insurance check. This car check is freely available for any UK registered car.
Data from our free car checks are derived from DVLA and DVSA.
At its launch, our service offered a single, premium Platinum check that discloses all available online information for any car.
In June 2019, we decided to launch a mid-range check that shares the majority of car history but omits car finance information (outstanding car finance). This has become our Gold car check.
Always begin with a VRM (vehicle registration number) and access the free car data check. This allows users to confirm basic vehicle details whilst ensuring the car is held in legal status with DVLA.
Gold is designed for use before viewing the car. This check will help eliminate the possibilities of a stolen car or one that has been involved in a major accident resulting in write-off status.
If this check flags any such warnings you may consider rejecting the car at initial stages.
Platinum must be used after viewing the car but before buying. This check includes all of the car data previously mentioned and an outstanding finance check (this information is sourced via Experian and includes a data guarantee of up to £30,000.
The mileage check offered here applies to vehicles that are 3 years old or more. There is a flag for mileage inconsistencies resulting in MOT history that results in a Warning check status.
Ideally, this work has been carried out by a Franchised, supplying dealership.
The Platinum check includes a detailed guide on buying a used car that is genuine and of good value. The information contained in this guide is founded on 29 years of extensive, frontline motoring experience within car dealerships.
The combination of Platinum and the robust CarVeto buying guide arms today's car buyers with the information needed to buy a great, long lasting car.
