It’s not unusual to be a little wary and cautious when you’re on the lookout for a new vehicle.

With cloned vehicles and clocked cars on the road, you’re right to be concerned about being scammed. You don’t want to be the one who finds out that the great deal you got on your new car ended up being a costly nightmare!
That’s why it’s vital to check the history of any vehicle you intend to buy. Whilst our vehicle checks won’t tell you outright that a car has been cloned or clocked, our premium check will advise if a vehicle has been scrapped or written off and provides you with the tools to obtain a valuation. If a car’s too good to be true, it probably is.
Clocked vehicles – which is when a car’s clocked mileage is reduced manually to increase the sell-on price — might be tricky to identify, but by using our free vehicle check, you can easily see the mileage history and check for any anomalies. If anything looks odd, walk away.
