Check the logbook actually belongs to the car you’re looking at and is the most recent issue
A great way to identify whether a used car, van or motorbike you’re looking to buy is legally valid and safe to purchase is by using a logbook checker. This validates that the logbook belongs to the vehicle being looked at and that all the details included in it are correct and line up with the car’s history and condition.
A logbook check comes as part of all HPI car checks we offer, and is the easiest way to ensure the right documentation is attached to the correct vehicle. Otherwise it will be likely that the car you’re buying is stolen or rung.
Stolen Car Registration Document (V5C) Check Online
There are thousands of stolen V5C documents in circulation. This is dangerous when buying a used car as the wrong attached logbook could claim that the vehicle has had a different number of previous owners and not include any major work it has undergone. Misrepresenting the vehicle means you won’t be sure of what the exact condition and history is of the car being bought.
Therefore, a registration document check is an essential action to take before buying your next vehicle. The V5C check will determine whether it is the correct documentation for that car, and if it is not then you should postpone buying the vehicle.
Every car logbook check will confirm the legitimacy of the vehicle for sale. It allows you, the buyer, to feel secure in the knowledge that it is not a stolen car or logbook, and are aware of any risks its history or current condition may provide.
This is included as part of every vehicle checker service we offer, and informs you that the logbook is the most recent issue as well as matching with the vehicle. Book in for a logbook check as part of our HPI checks today.
