Start your car check with a FREE Vehicle Factsheet

Free Car Check Competition

My Car Check have launched a brand new, FREE Vehicle Factsheet that allows you to check the MOT status & history, Tax status, recorded mileages and valuation of a vehicle, in addition to showing you some basic specification data.

The Vehicle Factsheet has been created to assist car buyers at the very early stages of searching for a used car, when you may have lots of vehicles on your shortlist and not yet ready to choose the car you’re likely to buy.

The Vehicle Factsheet will give you some basic, but crucial information to weed out a large number of cars early on, before you then go on to upgrade your Vehicle Factsheet to a comprehensive vehicle check such as the Gold and Platinum checks My Car Check offer.

Remember, always check the paperwork of any cars you are interested in buying and always carry out a comprehensive vehicle check before agreeing to buy it.

It’s easy to get a Vehicle Factsheet for any vehicle, simply enter the reg on our homepage or in our app and select the “Vehicle Factsheet” option.

Top UK cities for write-offs

A recent analysis of all vehicle checks carried out on mycarcheck.com over the last 12 months has shown the cities in the UK most likely to have written off cars for sale.

London came out top as the city most likely to find a written off car, with 24.74% of all cars checked being written off. At the other end of the scale, the big city you are least likely to find a written off car is Glasgow, where only 13.67% of cars checked being written off.

The most common car to be written off in the UK’s biggest cities is the Ford Fiesta, where it tops the table in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool and Cardiff.
