HPI vehicle check text – open your eyes to the used car market
IT’S amazing how quickly that feeling of satisfaction you get from driving your new car can disappear once you realise the motor you’ve just shelled out your hard-earned cash on has a murky past. Of course, once the money has changed hand, it’ll be too late to realise that the car has outstanding finance on it, has previously been declared a write-off by an insurance company or even been reported stolen. At best, you could just be left out of pocket, at worst you could lose your money and the car. A few quid spent on a HPI text check could have saved you a lot of heartache.
Sending a quick car check text to TextCarCheck.com will let you know if the car is a write-off. This is valuable information as some write-offs have just been patched up and sold on, without much regard for safety. If you are then involved in accident, you can’t be too sure whether your new car would stand up to it or if you or your passengers would be able to walk away from it. In some cases, a HPI check could literally be a life saver.
Splash out on a stolen car and you could be buying yourself a whole pile of trouble. If the police managed to track down a car which has been reported stolen and you, the unwitting buyer are found to have it sitting in your driveway, you’ll lose the vehicle and the money you spent on it. The original owner will get the car back or if the insurance company has already paid out on a claim by the owner, then they would assume ownership of the vehicle. Either way, you’d be left with nothing.
Similarly, if there is outstanding finance on the car and you buy it, you cannot be the registered owner of the vehicle until the balance of the finance agreement is paid out in full. In this instance, the finance company could assume ownership, leaving you back to square one. A lot hassle which could all be avoided with a quick and simple car text check from TextCarCheck.com.
What will my text check tell me about the vehicle?
For a few pounds, you’ll have a lot of data at your fingertips when you decide which used car to go for. You’ll find out the car’s history, including whether it has been clocked, ringed, cloned, stolen, written off or is the subject of an outstanding finance agreement.
Each year, around 500,000 cars are written off by insurers who feel that repairing them would prove too costly. Many cars which have been written off are put back on the road, with figures showing that almost one in 20 cars which have been the subject of HPI checks have been previously declared write-offs.
Almost half-a-million cars are reported stolen each year in the UK. Over 30 cars a day are stolen according to HPI text check figures and many of those are purchased by buyers who are unaware of the illegal activity involved. However, that will be no excuse if the car is tracked down as you will have to return it to its rightful owner and you’ll lose your cash too.
Some form of finance is used to buy more than eight million vehicles in the UK, so there is a high chance that you could have your eye on a car which was original purchased in this way. That’s why it’s important that you find out if a car has any outstanding finance on it. A quarter of cars which have been investigated by a HPI text check are found to be the subject unsettled finance agreements. If there is still balance owed to a finance company, then they can take ownership of the car even if it is sold to you, and you will have no legal comeback due to the Sale of Goods Act.
Car reg check and clocking
When an attempt is made to disguise the real mileage of a car by tampering with the odometer, this is called clocking. An unscrupulous seller will try to make it look like a car has done far fewer miles than it actually has.
By firing off a car check text, you’ll be able to find out if the mileage records just don’t add up.
A car with an incorrect mileage can also be a safety hazard as certain parts will need replacing at particular mileage intervals. If the mileage is inaccurate, you could find things starting to go wrong with the motor you’ve just spent a large amount of cash on. A HPI text check is essential to protecting your money and your safety.
To get an online car check with TextCarCheck.com, all you need is the registration number of the car or the VIN/chassis number.
A HPI text check is the quickest and easiest way to get all the vital details on the car you are hoping to buy. Whether you are at home flicking through a used car magazine or in a dealer’s showroom, you can get all the information you need straight to your computer or mobile phone.
Many companies will supply you with a report over the post and some used car garages will also carry out HPI checks on the vehicles they are selling. However, it’s always worth getting your own report as, sometimes, a dealer may not be showing you the whole picture.
Before you part with your hard-earned cash, make sure you know what you’re getting into it. A HPI text check is a small price to pay for the knowledge of knowing you are buying the right car.
