What is a car check report?

The car check report is a comprehensive reported history of a used motor vehicle that has been registered in Ireland, the UK and elsewhere. The car check report is designed to alert you to potentially significant information about a vehicle and its history. Running a car history check report will include essential information about a vehicle which can help you in your decision to purchase that vehicle.

As well as an Irish vehicle car history check, you can also run a UK car history check report and find out the history of the vehicle in the UK. In the UK over 80% of people automatically purchase a car history check, commonly referred to as a HPI Check, when they are considering buying a used car. In Ireland only about 20 per cent of car buyers consider to check a car registration through a car history check website. In this instance, Irish consumers are gradually seeing the benefits of checking a car's history before they buy.

Check car reg before you buy

When you purchase a full car background check, you also get other essential information about the vehicle such as a vehicle identity check, car finance check, car valuation showing what the car is expected to be worth in the current market and a host of other essential data about a used car history.

The report will tell you if the vehicle has suffered damage resulting in a written-off status. You will also find out if the vehicle’s odometer reading is consistent with what has been previously reported, or if it has been potentially wound back (based on the reading you provide) which is known as clocking. The car history check will also tell you if the car has been previously stolen as well as other information such as safety and emission ratings for that vehicle.
