HPI/Car Check Service

As above really, who have you used before for HPI check? Any recommendations?


Cheers,

Matt

Ok a bit pointless, but just went for a full HPI check from HPI.com. Thought I'd be better to go direct to the most renowned firm first.

Still interested to hear any alternative companies though as the car I was looking at has come back with outstanding finance! So looks like I'll be doing another one...

As I understand it HPI maintain the database, other companies buy bulk access and then re-sell it onto you. If it's important I tend to buy an HPI directly, for a cheap shed I do a cheap text check etc for a couple of quid.

It's fairly important, so thought I'd go direct. The owner has now proved to me the outstanding finance is now cleared with paperwork. Over 2 weeks ago so even HPI can be out of date.
