CarVeto or hpi check?

Hpi check is the UK’s earliest car checking service, established in the 1930’s. CarVeto is in no way affiliated or aligned with hpi check. Our car check service is similar and most of our sources are the same.

And, CarVeto is almost half the price of hpi.

CarVeto offers a free and platinum car check service. We chose to offer one product with one clear outcome.

When you buy car data there are crucial components to understand.
Failed datapoints may directly impact your financial investment if you continue to buy the car.


Important data

Stolen – CarVeto search and return data from Police Theft Markers.
If the car turns out to be stolen the new owner may lose their money as well as the vehicle.

Insurance category write-off – CarVeto searches and returns from the Motor Insurance Anti Fraud Theft Register (MIAFTR) insurance write-off status database. Should the car return a failed status from this data point it can potentially mean the car is worth a fraction of its true market value. The vehicle may also be illegal and unroadworthy.

Mileage discrepancies – CarVeto also receive data from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) that reveals full MOT history and recorded mileage information. Car clocking is on the rise in the UK as a way of increasing a cars market value. Incorrect mileage usually means the car, its engine and components are excessively worn which severely impact on the car value.

Scrapped – CarVeto provides data revealing if a car has been scrapped and/or cloned. This is illegal practice and car value is dramatically reduced.

Outstanding finance – CarVeto gathers financial interests on any UK vehicle via Experian. As with hpi check, CarVeto is backed with a 30,000-data guarantee. If the car bought has outstanding finance the new owner is likely to lose the car and any financial investment made towards it.
