Compared to hpi and the others I like this service because it is direct about if a car should be bought or not.
Definitely use it again.

Free car check that Vetoes a vehicle before you buy

CarVeto is a high quality, valuable car check.

There is only one premium check on offer, our Platinum Veto service that reveals all information pertaining to any vehicle registered within the UK from new. The Veto investigation searches the police theft markers, DVLA data fields (including car mileage history checks), MIAFTR insurance 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 and hpi Check. These providers do not provide a free service.

The vital components of any paid car check must include outstanding car finance check agreements, records of any major accident damage that’s resulted in a category loss, mileage check anomalies and theft records. CarVeto offers this data and much more.

Alongside every investigation, you are provided with clear instructions if a vehicle is safe to buy.

We also include our free, comprehensive car buying guide with every Veto Platinum.

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.
