The 3 aspects of a car check report

  • Any car check report includes 3 parts namely basic vehicle check, finance report, MOT and tax related tests and the first part is basic vehicle check. This involves everything related to the mechanical aspect of the vehicle which includes subheads like the previous ownership of the car(the number of owners included) , any form of colour change, any change in the number plate and it’s related history , the history of being scrapped, and various authorised numbers associated with the cars like firstly comes the VRM number meaning vehicle registration number, VIC and VRC numbers meaning re-issued registration number in case of any theft that took place and also ViC serves as the means of cross checking with government if the registration number issued to the number is correct or not. Lastly the specific engine number which acts specific to every engine and can be known instantly if the engine has been changed from one car to another. the scrapped part include any form of history related to being met with an accident and the it’s parts removed or replaced in place. Hence covering the basic vehicle check gives an idea about what the condition on the car is it and also the estimate of the car’s resale. This is included in total car check.

  • The financial report as mentioned earlier consists of an outstanding finance check usually includes a financial report where if the car has any payments to me made of any sort either to the insurance company or to the previous owner hence clearing the name of the owner who is purchasing from any finance related troubles associated with the car. This when ignored can actually cause the owner to fall into legalised financial troubles. Coming to any history of write off from the insurance company meaning the car has been declared a loss the amount of money put into repairs and fixes is more than or exceeds the purchase value hence is car has been declared a write off previously and is still trying to be sold to the new customer it can be identified from this aspect of the report and the whole purchase proceedings can be stopped further saving the buyer a lot of money and time behind the doomed car.
  • The third aspect being the MOT. In any country the rules have become such that for the vehicle to be travelled on roads requires to fulfil some criteria and to fulfil the criteria it includes having tax related queries and also the specifications of the MOT to be fulfilled meaning it has few rules that are to followed and a series of frequent tests are to be done over a series of years and also the result is declared after the test with a remark made on the mileage and the pass or fail report. The fail report is given also comes with a set a changes to be made are against  or does not follow the road traffic guidelines.
