These guys mugged me for 15 quid. I only wanted and paid for one car history check but was charged 15 GBP again next month for no reasons.
Someone should report these guys to small claims court !

I want to know why I have been charged £15 for one search on a car.
If someone from the company could get back to me, that would be a start.

Review by Pitagoras Derrow3 years ago
I paid for a HPI check on Monday (bank holiday). I received the report but I had a query as it showed as not being able to confirm if there was finance on the vehicle.
I emailed the customer service team and they replied the same evening saying they would get back to me ASAP. I explains the urgency as I was waiting to collect the car.
Today is Wednesday 8:30pm and since the original email I have emailed three times with no responses.
I used a competitor "Instant Car Check" and I would highly recommend them. I received all of the required information instantly.
I am now waiting for a refund which I have requested as I had to pay twice to get the required response.

Brilliant, very quick excellent price and well worth it. You know then the status of the vehicle you can purchase with confidence safe in the knowledge that you are not buying trouble.
Review by VWduk5 years ago
I cannot fault the service I have received. I have used Car Status Check twice in the past month to verify the identity and check HPI on vehicles I have been looking to purchase. Both times within seconds of purchasing I had all the information I needed to make a decision. I paid for the top level service, but even so it is still reasonably priced compared to others, and their guaruntee offers some peace of mind should the information be inaccurate.

Clear information, good service
Review by ASuperGav Belis5 years ago
Yes, would recommend however do feel that more details on it would be better, for example the car was a write off but didn't say what category it was in!

The report is ok but what they don't tell you on the homepage or selection page for silver £2.99 gold £7.49 or platinum £11.99 is for the full platinum check you will need the V5 registration document information. If you haven't got the V5 info you won't be entitled to the £10,000 insurance.

Information layout is simple and informative no unwanted stuff.
Review by Tsirimonas6 years ago
When I checked out the car I was going to buy it came back as an Insurance write off however I didn't tell me would category the write off came under. Most car checks tell you the category off a write off so you know roughly how bad the damage was. So I was not impressed as I paid for the Gold Check and expected it to tell me the category off the write off. However due to the fact that it was a write off I am no longer buying this car.

Review by Rajalingam Kousholt6 years ago
For £12 the peace of mind of doing the full check and having a guarantee is definitely worth it. My only negative is that as I started completing the information I was asked for information I did not have to hand (eg Chassis number). I was concerned I would not be able to complete the activation and would lose my money and was irritated by the thought this might be a deliberate ploy but it turns out you could complete the activation later. I think this needs to be clearer in the earlier pages to avoid customer frustration. Overall though I was very happy and can sleep easy despite handing over a considerable sum of money to someone I have never met.....
Review by Customerjerry6 years ago
....activating your guarantee is virtually impossible unless it is done at the time of the search, which is difficult because it requires obscure information you are unlikely to have until you complete the purchase.
Review by Ziggy Ivove6 years ago
I was initially going to do the check by texting the premium number to get all the promised details. I didn't have the phone at that time, though, so I went the online route. Paid same much as for the sms service and received very generic, basically worthless info (for example, the number of former keepers was not there). My fault that I didn't check the sample report, which I advise you to do beforehand, but the way the website is constructed made me think that I would get the same level of information. Not a substantial loss I incurred, nevertheless an annoying experience.
