An essential service, efficiently delivered

“Using HPI Check is, for me, an essential part of buying a car. Unlike some other aspects of buying a car, this one is straightforward, quick, and given the potential should things not be in order, it is excellent value for money. It also means that I trust the many other offers that come through HPI Check. Excellent!”

Mr Tom Chubb

Comprehensive, quick and reassuringly helpful.

“I just needed a bit of reassurance that the car I was buying was indeed what it said in the ad. Initially the report I had back from HPI said there was HP outstanding but by following the advice and calling the finance company, I was pleased that this had indeed been cleared.”

I used this service for the first time and I am really, really pleased.
