“You get what you pay for!!! Don't expect much!”

Written on: 24/03/2017 by 295Rodgers (1 review written)

So, its cheap and cheerful. But be aware, the website is missleading, I paid £4 for finance to be included, and like others have said, it is asking for £5 more for the finance. It also is not listing anything for mileage. Therefore, its a bit shady and thus makes you question how accurate it is? It's a glorified service that is not worth much, only thing it told me I didn't know was the Vin number and that it wasn't written off. If I was buying something over 5K I would def not… Read Full Review

Don't bother, use the DVLA site it's free. No finance checks, which is what most people want, and anything else is free with DVLA, do save you pennies and don't use these misleading people.

You wasted your hard earned cash use the DVLA for free. This company use misleading information to get your money, you pay £5.00 extra for finance information, sounds very close to fabrication of the truth.

You can get all this information free by going on the DVLA web site, and it is much more accurate and up to date. All this site does is copy this information and send it to you at a price.
