When a seller advertises a vehicle on our website, we use the details sourced from Motor Insurance Anti-Fraud and Theft Register (MIAFTR), operated by Insurance Database Services Ltd, to check whether the vehicle is recorded as having been written off.
This is one of the five basic checks we do on all vehicles advertised on our website. Our basic vehicle check will also show if a car has been stolen, scrapped, imported or exported. We won’t advertise a car if a check reveals it’s been stolen, scrapped or recorded as Category A or B write-off.
Cat A or B vehicles can’t be advertised on our website, but Cat C, D, S or N vehicles can. We’ll highlight its insurance status as part of our vehicle checks. For more information, read insurance categories explained
As well as our 5 basic checks, some sellers have purchased our full vehicle check on the cars they’re advertising which includes checks for mileage discrepancies and outstanding finance. This means you can see a summary of a cars history without having to buy a full vehicle check report. The only difference is you won’t have a data guarantee of up to £30,000 should any information be incorrect.
Data can always change so we strongly advise you to perform your own vehicle check with data guarantee for added peace of mind. Get a vehicle check
