About CarVeto

Buying a second-hand vehicle is an ideal route to reducing the costs of motoring as the majority of new vehicles will lose around 40% of their value in the first 12 months.

You most likely already know that buying second hand can be fraught with risk so it is important to take your time and avoid rushing into a quick purchase. Your ultimate buying decision must come from the head and not the heart.

CarVeto was born from more than 30 years of direct experience in the used car industry. Our firsthand knowledge of the sector gave birth to CarVeto, one of a kind vehicle history check service that offers a definitive answer to buying a used vehicle.

There is only one check on offer, our premium Platinum service that reveals all information pertaining to any UK registered vehicle. The Veto investigation searches the police theft markers, DVLA car check data fields (including mileage history investigations), MIAFTR insurance car write off status and VCA safety recall.

There are a number of car check providers in the UK including RAC Passport, AA Checks, Instant Car Check, My Car Check and hpi Check. These providers differ in price but almost all of the data they provide is identical.

The vital components of your car check must include outstanding finance agreements, records of any major accident damage that’s resulted in a category loss, mileage discrepancies and stolen car check theft records. CarVeto offers this data and much more. Alongside every investigation, we provide clear instructions if the vehicle is safe to buy.

We also include complimentary access to the finest, most comprehensive car buying guide, with every Advanced Check.

Enter your car registration number above and take advantage of our preliminary car data check. It will send you the basics of any UK car including vehicle details, insurance details, MOT and road tax information. Once you have these our Platinum service provides the other critical data.
