“Great information and good value”

Written on: 28/08/2016 by Aryan207 (1 review written)

Just what I needed to check a car I was going to buy. I was not only able to check the standard things such as finance, write offs, owners, but also the MOT history which details any failures and also record mileage which helps know whether the mileage is correct. For under £2 it is good reassurance… Read Full Review

“Enormously Helpful. able to tell me such a lot about...”

Written on: 27/08/2016 by mqDobson454 (1 review written)

This company were able to give quite a thorough history on the car we wanted to buy. Not knowing very much about cars at all, it was a huge relief to have confirmation on exactly what the dealer had said. Buying a car is a minefield so it is very comforting to have this company to call upon The staff were always very clear on the various levels of assistance they could offer.

“My Car Check”

Written on: 09/07/2016 by 152Russell (1 review written)

This was a perfect and quick way for me to check out a potential new car and put my mind at rest. It is not expensive yet it could save so much heartache. It is very easy to use and you only need the registration and make of the car to find out if it is okay to buy. There is also the option for a more advanced search if you feel the need and that is also not very expensive for the peace of mind it provides… Read Full Review

“My problem solvers! ”

Written on: 08/07/2016 by MarcosPerkins (1 review written)

I was planning on p/exchanging my car but the dealer pointed out that there was a problem with HPI. I hadn't come across this before so contacted MyCarCheck. In a few moments I had the information identifying the problem - and more importantly what to do about it! Altogether a great result and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. You get a print out of the car details & a free market valuation too… Read Full Review

“problem now resolved.”

Written on: 05/07/2016

My whole experience with "My Car Check" was excellent. The result came through very quickly, but because of a worrying problem with one detail (not their fault) it became necessary for me to phone Customer Services. Again their response was most professional and courteous. Within a short time the matter was resolved to my complete satisfaction. I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again if the situation should arise in the future. … Read Full Review

I bought a car: BMW 118d msport convertible done a HPI check with My Car Check.com. On 16/4/16, report came back all clear no outstanding finance, nothing.

Does mycarcheck have an update for the users of this forum regarding this matter? Having just used the platinum package before travelling 70 miles in the morning to hopefully purchase what sounds to be the perfect car for my son, I now feel I need to pay and carry out another with the RAC. A full service history is must for me which this car is advertised as having as this will verify the low mileage. mycarcheck came back with "No Mileages Available For This Vehicle", A simple free DVLA check instantly lists ALL MOT's for the same vehicle and has provided me with the Mileage at each MOT since it's first in 2013 - I then questioned the "We have no record of" update given for every other category (with exception of "No VIN check has been performed"especially after scrolling down and viewing the VALUATIONS - I am at a loss as to where on earth you source this data from or what value it adds, unless you can advise your customers which "forecourts" we can all find there bargins which in my case is 33% less than any forecourt I have found and I have viewed over 600 forecourt priced cars using many search engines, every one which is 33% more than your figure seems to have been sold within a day. YOUR VALUATION OF PRIVATE SALE IS WITHIN LESS THAN 5% OF "WEBUYANYCAR".

So coming back to this particular customers review and your response, after looking at various review forums, including your own and seeing that several customers appear to have experienced finding that the finance information was incorrect, both for cars with finance and those without, I decided to use one of my "free" platinum checks to test the robustness of your search engines and "we have no record of" data updates provided to me on my first search. I searched a vehicle which I knew was one of a number in a fraud investigation in to a local car firm, very recently liquidated, the car had been double financed, it has not yet gone to auction having been repossessed and will pay less than 25% of the finance owing by the two duped owners, it was bought at auction and then sold first time with no service history, 16K miles on a 3 year old Merc which runs like a Datsun Sunny!

Anyway, report came back as "we have no record of this" on every category again! One former keeper. There was some mileage history on this one, 3 records from mid 2015 to july 2016, 16K, 16K and 22K but a not to say, provided from third party (whatever that means)

In fairness, more by luck than judgement you got the valuation closer to "worth nothing do not buy" albeit still £18,000.

Please, please, can you advise which industry source you use for each data check which you provide - it does not appear it is experian or DVLA.

My personal perception and I hope that you can quickly change this, is that your checks actually destroy value rather than add value.

“Total rip off”

Written on: 01/08/2015 by Aydinr (1 review written)

Paid for gold check and all checks came back clear. Later found out it had been written off and insurance had not released vechicle so now need for fork out additional costs for vosa vic testing. Paid £4000 for car and it can't be driven. If I had done checks with DVLA for free this information is logged. Mycarcheck customer service rubbish as they request every document you can think off perhaps another barrier to avoid making claim. All in all I won't be getting any compensation. They don't… Read Full Review

Really easy site to navigate and use- able to check if any finance linked to the vehicle. Felt confident with the information I could access and helped me to avoid a fiesta I was looking to purchase.
