When buying a second-hand car, it’s so important to get a car history check report. As soon as you purchase a car history check from MyVehicle.ie we will send you a document with a wide range of information about the car.
A Vehicle History Check will tell you amongst other things:
- If the car was written-off
- Has the car has been damaged
- Is there is any outstanding finance owed
- If the car was used as a taxi before
- Number of previous owners
- If the NCT is invalid
The history check will also give you a number of other findings in the report that might affect the performance of the car. After that, you will also be able to make an informed and rational decision when thinking of buying or selling a car.
