Why Should You Run a Smart Car Check?

Shopping for a used car? It’s a dodgy market and more than half of used cars in the UK have a hidden history that the seller does not want you to know about.


Getting a Smart Car Check is important due to some of the following reasons:

  • Uncovers any hidden history or associated risks related to the dar you are interested in

  • Provides details including vehicle registeration, all alerts i.e if the vehicle was imported, exported,scrapped,or had any mileage discrepancy and more

  • Saves you from investing in a car that has been to an auction or was badly damaged due to any incident

  • Allows you to check if there were previous keepers of the car and the log book counts, if the plate was changed, if color was changed. Not just that, it provides you the MOT and tax dues information aswell

  • Give insights into the fuel economy, running costs, CO2 emissions. and vehicle performance features too

Benefits of Checking Every Used Car with Smart Car Check

A Smart Car Check Is a Key to the Car’s Past and Present Unlock the Data and Be Smart

Learn the shocking truth about that auctioned vehicle.

Reckon that the car went to auction? Auctions cause vehicles to lose significant value because cars get rebuilt and refurbished. We are the only vehicle history provider to offer auction records and 10 exclusive photos of the vehicle per auction listing. The data includes seller name, seller type, auction date, location and sale status plus selling price. The images provide visual and detailed explanations of the condition of the car at the time of auction. Get to know the truth about any vehicle.


Avoid getting trapped in the increasing odometer fraud.

Has the car been clocked? Over 2.5 million vehicles have been clocked in the UK. Check the mileage history odometer data to make sure that you don’t overpay thousands of quid for a used vehicle. Our report will have the complete mileage history documented accurately on a table and graph. The data will also provide a mileage issues check. It is critical to make thorough checks to make sure that the vehicle is displaying its true mileage and you don’t overpay for your next used vehicle purchase.

Save yourself from buying an exported car.

Should you buy an exported car? Here’s the short answer: No, never buy it. An exported warning is a massive red flag. Something is very off with the records and the vehicle is in the UK illegally. The proper steps were not followed to transport the car in and out of the UK and there could still be VAT due or even other issues. Once you purchase an exported car, you won’t be able to insure, sell or drive the vehicle at all. Avoid the major hassle of a problematic car with the export check.


Know if there are colour changes to the vehicle.

Any mysterious colour changes to the vehicle? A vehicle's colour has a surprisingly large difference in its resale value. Certain colour changes including gold, brown, and purple cause used vehicles to depreciate dramatically at a 41-46% rate in just three years. Steer away from any surprising colour changes to the vehicle. Be sure to run the check to discover if the car still has the original colour and the reported current colour of the vehicle.
