Shane Teskey joins a lively debate on the Shaun Murray show with Donegal's Highland Radio.
Posted by Shane Teskey on 13 August 2013 in Importing from the UK, Used Cars

Following on from our analysis of UK imports and the discovery that 1 in 10 are write-off’s, Shaun Doherty from Highland Radio hosts a lively debate with Shane Teskey from and Anthony, a local car dealer who believes that a UK import is the only car history he can fully trust.

Whilst insurance companies in Ireland are not obliged to officially disclose their data on category C & D write offs we are hopeful that the law will soon be amended to rectify this. In the interim Motorcheck is actively engaged in researching this data privately and today our database holds in excess of 100,000 condition alerts that are relevant to this category.
