How we’ve helped

One of the daily rewards we enjoy at Motorcheck is reading the feedback we get from customers who have been helped by our service.

It’s very gratifying to know that what we’re doing is making a real difference to Irish car buyers and letters describing how we helped make the purchase of a car that much easier as well as personal accounts outlining how a Motorcheck report saved thousands of euro are a wonderful testimony to the value of a Motorcheck car history check.

Included below are some of our favorites received recently from prospective buyers and Motorcheck customers.

The history was too suspicious”

Annmarie Delaney

The lady selling the car seemed very genuine and we were in two minds whether to even bother doing a motor check.

Eventually after lots of discussions, about “wasting money” to check the car out, we logged onto Motorcheck.ie and were amazed at the findings…..

Badly Repaired & a Fake NCT”

Lizzie Foale

I did a Motorcheck back in June 2011, it highlighted that the car had been clocked back by more than 30,000 miles…and the NCT that it claimed to have was a fake.

I can’t thank your company enough for providing this service. It really was a life saver.

Clocked Half the Mileage”

James McEvoy

James McEvoy

The seller was selling for €13,150. It had only 70,000 miles on it with a full BMW service history. “You will want this car as soon as you see it” he said. I thought this was the one but how wrong was I!

Forewarned is Forearmed”

John Clark

As a very Senior Citizen it is a great comfort to know that there are still honest people  around and Motorcheck has to be one of these.

I have used your services many times over the last two years and the accuracy and depth of your reports has saved me time and money.

I avoided buying a clocked import”

Joe Farrell

Joe Farrell

All i can say is wow, what a great service.

I was purchasing a car for my daughter and we had whittled it down to a short list of VW Polo 1.4 TDi Year 05, we had three in mind. Having decided to run a check on these cars prior to making the journey up country we discovered that the cars had been CLOCKED ie 93000 miles in UK.

Lorraine thanks Motorcheck”

I found motor check wonderful and staff very helpful. Looked up a UK reg Skoda Superb and found there was finance owed on it.

Rang motor check and they looked into it and found it was cleared!! I was very happy with the quick service they provided.

From a very happy owner of a Skoda Superb.

 

Thank you Motorcheck”

Thank you Motor check as it gives one piece of mind when purchasing a vehicle and helps make the decision to buy or not to buy.

We’re Helping to Make Decisions”

It’s a very useful website. Yes, I did base my decision on your report and bought the other car – 06 SCENIC for which I also got a report from your website.

Thanks,

Spend a Few Euros to Save a Lot!”

Motorchecks.ie saved me a whole heap of trouble and a whole load of money. You simply cannot rely on the seller to tell you the entire truth about the car – in some cases they might not even know that the car was crashed previous to their purchase of the car. You cannot take a chance and spend a few euros to save a lot!

So I decided to go to Motorcheck…. Well I am glad I did!”

Well this car was going for a good price…. Too good. So I decided to go to Motorcheck to put my mind at rest. Well am I am glad I did! Car had almost certainly been clocked. There was a condition marker on it indicating it may have been involved in an incident and it had 9 previous owners the latest of which had owned the car for 22 days. Saved me a wasted journey and 60e in fuel to view the car.

Thanks!!

Matt

Motorcheck it – Make decision easier!”

Yea bought the car today, yea report helped as on the report the car had not been taxed for over two years, putting this to the seller it was explained and this also helped to answer why the milage was low on the car which was another concern I had. So report helped with any doubts I had and my decision easier, very helpful

Hire Purchase Information”

I asked Motorcheck to carry out a check on a car. The report which Motorcheck issued showed that there was outstanding finance on the car. Motorcheck proceeded to check with the bank in order to confirm the status. And Motorcheck then confirmed by text message to my mobile that the bank had confirmed that the finance was clear.
What I would have liked at that point was if Motorcheck had re-issued (to my email) the original report with no ‘highlighted’ issues showing. This would allow me to have a print-out of the report that I could put with the paperwork of the car in order that when I sell it in three years a new buyer can see this ‘clear’ report.
A future buyer will still need to get confirmation by carrying out a new check on Motorcheck to ensure that there is no finance/mileage tampering/write off or accidents etc., and the original paperwork would be complete.

Thanks,

Garrett

Seriously dodgy mileage”

John Walshe

I used Motorcheck in September 2011, when buying a new car. On a friend’s advice, I decided to perform a Motorcheck on both vehicles, and boy was I glad I did.

One of the vehicles showed up with some seriously dodgy mileage on the clock, and it had also been up for auction six months previously and not sold.

3 Clocked Cars and an Ex-Taxi”

Eugene Quinlan

4 Motorchecks on 4 Passats…3 clocked, one a disguised taxi and finally the car I was after was acquired with the piece of mind provided by Motorcheck that it was not imported, clocked, crashed, written off, stolen etc.

Thanks to Motorcheck I didn’t end up with a car that, down the road (excuse the pun!), might give me some (big) unwanted surprises.

Service History Looked Legitimate”

Adam O’Toole

I had gone through the service history booklet, and was satisfied that the car “ticked all the boxes”…I was completely shocked to discover that the Motorcheck.ie report showed odometer discrepancies on the car, which was suggesting it might have been clocked!

Clocked, Written Off and a Lemon”

Pat Casey

I spotted an apparently-good-value Jaguar X Type estate in May 2011 at a local 2nd hand car dealer. Having viewed the car it was obvious that this was an import and I wanted to make sure the mileage was genuine.

I performed a Motorcheck history check and within seconds knew that the odometer had ‘lost’ tens of thousands of miles! Needless to say, I didn’t purchase….

Nearly bought an insurance write off”

Keith-Walsh-TN

Keith Walsh

I decided to go for the full check and was shocked to find out that the car had been written off earlier in the year. Also the car was originally a UK car which I did not know either.

I rang the seller and told him what I had discovered and he admitted the car had a “tip” but that the car was fine. When I pressed him on it he didn’t know the details. Needless to say I didn’t purchase the car.

Alan avoided to buy written-off vehicle”

Recently we received this testimonial from Alan Smith who thanked us for helping him avoid a written-off car that he was looking at.

Your service was a great help. I was just about to give a deposit on that golf. Thanks to your site I found out that the car was wrote off in July this year. I pulled away from the deal.

I will use you again.

One More Happy Customer”

The website was extremely helpful and helped detect that the car I had been researching had been written off and led to me pulling out of purchasing it.

Andrew

Steve – responsible buyer”

The Motorcheck report I ordered informed me that the car I was interested in was subject to a hire purchase agreement that the previous owner hadn’t mentioned.

I still bought the car but was able to ensure the finance was settled with the financial institution before purchase. Worse case scenario I could have paid the seller directly and my money disappeared as well as the car when eventually repossessed.

Great Service, thanks!

Steve

Lesson Learned – Always get the Motorcheck Report!!”

I decided not to buy the Primera in question as the Motorcheck report said that it was registered as a Taxi. The seller did not mention anything about this when I took it for a test-drive; along with a couple of other inconsistencies. The mistake I made was not getting the Motorcheck report before I drove across the country and gave the “seller” €100 as a deposit. When something looks too good to be true it usually is!
Lesson Learned – Always get the Motorcheck Report!!

I did not realise how good the reports were”


So after getting the Motorcheck report from you I did not buy
that Alfa 147.

I had been in contact with the seller prior to getting the report. He assured me that the car was in good condition and to his knowledge never damaged. He also told me he had the car for 2 years and that the previous owner had it for 2 years. We agreed a price and I was to travel from Donegal to
Mayo to view and hopefully buy the car.

I then decided…..
