History of CarVeto

Comments from Marcus Rockey

As the CEO and founder of CarVeto, I built the brand on top of 30 years of motor trade experience. My father owned a well-known car dealership in Bristol, and I was learning the trade from a young age.

CarVeto was created to be the first car history check that is intuitive, simple to understand with one simple offering at an affordable price. Since launch, we now offer a Gold and Platinum certificate.

We offer a free service that includes vehicle details, export status, MOT status, road tax status, costs and CO2 output and car insurance status with thanks to askMID.

Included with our best car check is my personal, car buying guide and tips. This additional resource includes just about every tip and trick I have learned to buy a used car that is genuine, reliable and good value.
