Great Service

“The actual check was great as always, more data points than anyone else, clearly the best option and they have the best guarantee of all the providers I looked at. Also, their service was great on the phone. They called me back when they said they would, they did what they said they would, they just generally exceeded my expectations of a call centre operation. Good work guys.”

HPI Check

“I found this extremely useful as I found the car I was buying had a mileage discrepancy when checked with HPI... This was resolved by the seller however without the benefit of the HPI check I would not have been any the wiser.”

~ Ben Hattersley

Great, quick and informative service

“This service saved me from spending a lot of money on a vehicle that turned out to be Cat D (write-off), which wasn't mentioned to me. Would definitely recommend this company before purchasing a vehicle.”

~ Shelley

Brilliant as always

“I've always used HPI when buying a vehicle and again it's done its job perfectly. This time the car had outstanding finance on it so we made sure the dealer had this cleared before we took the car.”
