When you are purchasing a vehicle you may want to run a Car History check first.

The reason being that there are any things that you won’t be able to tell without it.

All you need is a VIN number of the vehicle and the history of the vehicle (Cars, bikes and trucks) is yours to discover.

There are 2 major parts of the report that you get the most value from.

Is the car a repairable write off?

So what does it mean if it is?

Don’t get me wrong, a car can be a repairable write off, fixed properly and still be a great car.

However, you may want to have someone check the work has been completed properly.

Especially if they have caused other issues that we not fixed.

Most importantly though is that finance companies will not give you finance for written off vehicles.

If you are financing the vehicle this report can save you a lot of time.

Another important section of the report is if there is finance owing. 

A finance company can repossess a car that has finance owing from you even if you paid the seller in full.

The CarHistory Report is a comprehensive report on the reported history of a used motor vehicle that has been registered in Australia. It is designed to alert you to potentially significant information about a vehicle.

The Report includes a PPSR Certificate and depending on the information returned, the report can provide you with:

  • A PPSR Certificate – formerly REVS (which indicates if there is existing finance on the vehicle)
  • Written off Status – has the vehicle suffered damage? e.g. hail, fire, accident, flood
  • If the vehicle’s odometer reading is consistent with what has previously been reported, or if it has potentially been wound back (based on the reading you provide)
  •  Record of any reported written off or stolen statuses
  • Previous sale listings
  • Vehicle safety and emission ratings
  • What the car is expected to be worth in the current market

Comprehensive CarHistory Reports also include Vehicle Buyback Insurance (the only report in Australia to offer this feature).

This insurance provides you with added peace of mind.

A valid claim is paid if your vehicle is found to be a stolen vehicle, a written-off vehicle or encumbered at purchase.

However this must be within three months from the date you purchase your CarHistory Report.
