Car Owner Check


Cars with multiple previous owners are often seen as being less valuable to prospective buyers, which is why many car adverts are often keen to stress whether a car has had “one careful owner”.

With a car owner check, you can check that the information provided to you in the logbook is correct and accurate, or highlight issues that may cause you to walk away from the purchase.

If the logbook details are shown to be incorrect, then there could potentially be other issues with the vehicle. A car ownership check can tell you how many previous owners are actually recorded on the logbook, so you don’t have to rely solely on the information the seller gives you.

Vehicle Owner Check


A vehicle ownership check is highly advisable for reassurance before you buy a second-hand vehicle. Before you commit your hard-earned money to a new vehicle, it’s wise to know exactly what you’re buying.

In addition to verifying the number of previous owners, a car owner check can help you spot other potential areas of concern. For example, if the results of your vehicle owner check reveal that the car has had multiple owners within a short period, then it may be a sign of an unreliable car.

Alternatively, a vehicle owner check that verifies the information you’ve been given, will give you more confidence in proceeding with the sale.
