All cars at Motors.co.uk are entered into the screening check, but it may not always be possible to find data on the vehicle. A common reason is that the number plate has previously been changed, for example where someone has had a private number plate. There may not be a need to be concerned and we recommend you contact the seller if you have specific questions about a vehicle’s history. You must ensure that you reconfirm all information with the seller before committing to buy.
Condition Data uses information provided by Motor Industry Anti-Fraud and Theft Register and specifies if a vehicle has been written off (eg. there has been a total loss claim) due to damage or theft. Details are also available from the DVLA advising whether a vehicle has been scrapped, exported or has had a Certificate Of Destruction issued against it. An explanation of the categories of write-off are listed below:
The vehicle has not been repaired following extreme damage. It was deemed too damaged to be repairable with little or no salvageable parts.
The vehicle has not been repaired following significant damage. It was deemed too damaged to be repairable however did have salvageable parts.
This vehicle was repairable, but the repair costs exceeded the vehicle value. The insurer chose not to repair for economic reasons.
This vehicle was repairable, but the repair costs were significant compared to the vehicle value. The insurer chose not to repair for economic reasons.
This vehicle was recorded with a theft marker on the date provided. It does not necessarily indicate that the vehicle remains stolen.
Please note that it is for you to satisfy yourself as to the quality, condition and provenance of the vehicle through your own inspection and enquiries and Motors.co.uk shall accept no liability for any information prepared by it (in particular, where it is dependant and reliant on information provided by third parties and, for the avoidance of doubt, Motors.co.uk does not undertake to check or scrutinise such information).
