  • Our car checks at HPI include a fully comprehensive check of the car, providing you with information on 80 valuable data points regarding the history of the car. These include any number plate changes, mileage discrepancies which may indicate the car has been clocked, MOT history queries, the number of previous owners the car has had and many more.

Why You Need One of Our Car Checks

At HPI we’re experienced in providing thorough car checks and our detailed vehicle history check provides you with all of the most vital information about the car you’re wanting to buy to ensure you can make a fully informed decision.

We’ll provide you with accurate and up to date information when you use our car reg checker service, exposing any hidden secrets owners may have tried to conceal.

A car registration check at HPI can reveal so many different things about the history of a car, including whether it has ever been recalled for a safety defect which can be critical. Many cars for sale have a hidden past that the owner may be trying to cover up, our car checks protect you against these risks.

A car history check with HPI makes sense, giving you the reassurance you need to purchase a new car you know you can trust.
