Why it’s important to do vehicle background checks

Backround checking is essential when you are buying a used vehicle. No matter how convincing the seller sounds, don’t expect them to tell you everything they know.

Whether you are purchasing privately or from a motor vehicle dealer, it’s always a good idea to make informed decisions — you don’t want to buy someone else’s problem.

We search for hidden debts

A vehicle may have security interest (finance owing) registered against its past plate number if the registration plates have been replaced by the owner. We check for these cases too.

To detect money owing, the system automatically checks the past plate numbers in addition to the current plate number, the VIN and/or the chassis number.

More than just cars

• Cars • Motorcycles • Vans • Trucks • Buses • Motorhomes • Trailers

In general, any vehicle that has a plate number or a 17-character VIN can be checked.
