HPI Check® - Trusted by millions of people
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.”
Saved me money and a long journey“Saw the car I wanted, checked the car through your website, and how relieved I was that I did check its history. It was an insurance write-off, and the mileage was incorrect. Saved me from a very bad situation, and having a conman making my life a misery. Money well spent. Thanks”
