If you’re purchasing a van, it’s vital that you consider all the facts before going ahead with your purchase. From the condition to the vehicle’s history and the weight of the van, there’s so much to think about, and that’s where having a van check can come in handy.
The importance of checking a van’s history can’t be overstated. You need to be aware of any problems with a vehicle before you buy it, so that you can be sure if it’s safe to drive and that you’re not going to be faced with countless costs further down the line.
While some problems are immediately visible with the naked eye, others are not, and that’s where having a full van check can give you the data you need to make an informed decision. It also means that you’ll be able to verify the information the seller has given you, such as the mileage, the finance status and the van’s history.
Without a van check, you may find yourself purchasing a van that’s previously been written off or one that’s a stolen vehicle, without realising. There are also additional factors to think about, compared to buying a car or motorbike, that means it’s vital that you have all the information you can get prior to making a van purchase.
To check a van’s history, our van check tool provides you with valuable information that will help you make an informed decision. Simply enter the van’s registration number to get started.
We provide you with a great deal of information related to the van you’re considering buying. This includes:
Our van check is a comprehensive overview of the vehicle so you can make a purchase knowing you have all the facts you need, and that the vehicle is safe to drive.
A paid car check reveals the same information as a free check, but with added extras such as the value of the van so you can be sure that the vehicle you want to buy is a sound investment. This is a must when you’re buying a used van and it ensures that you know whether the van will be suitable for your needs. You’ll be given a range of valuation prices, from the trade retail to the part exchange price, auction price and more, all from the registration number.
While you may be excited by the prospect of buying a vehicle, you need to be sure that the investment you’re making won’t come back to cause you issues in the future. A vehicle check lends you that helping hand, helping you to spot the scams quickly so you don’t make a costly mistake. This is particularly important if you’re buying a commercial van for work, as you need to be completely sure it’s without any issues. Having the complete history in the form of our full van check will help you make a decision armed with the facts. We’ll inform you about the legal owner of the van, if there’s been a change in the number plate which can imply a fake identity, or if the mileage has been tampered with.
When you’re buying a van, you need to know how many miles it has travelled as vans are highly functional vehicles which are used in fleets and for delivering goods. This means that they are put through a lot of driving and can be in disrepair by the time they’re put up for resale. You don’t want to buy a van only to find that it’s nothing more than a hunk of metal with low performing parts that wear down quickly. In addition to a van check, you also want to check for signs of rust or obvious damage and leaking.
By entering the registration number and purchasing a full report, you can check if the van has been stolen or not. This data is taken from the police national computer so you can be sure it’s accurate and up to date.
