“Nearly bought an insurance write off”

Keith WalshI had been looking for a car for a long time as the car I currently have is quite old and it would need a good bit of money spent on it to get it through the NCT. I don’t use my car for work but I do drive it to the bus stop which is less than 5 mins from my house!

Anyway I had decided that I was going to buy a good car which would be at least a 2008 model to avail of the cheaper motor tax rate.

Eventually I found the one I was looking for, It had the right spec, colour etc. The price was a little high so I made an offer through the website that the car had been advertised on that was about 30% below the asking price. To my surprise the seller dropped the price by around 25%. I told him that I would be down at the weekend to see the car.

On the way I started having doubts and began to wonder why the seller dropped the price so quickly. I decided to do a search for a vehicle back round check. The motorcheck website seemed the most user friendly, you could see the checks and the cost of each option very easily. I decided to go for the full check and was shocked to find out that the car had been an insurance write 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.

I can’t recommend motorcheck enough, they provide a very thorough check and there is a person to talk to if you have any questions or concerns. When I do purchase my next car I will definitely use motorcheck before I buy, it saved me a lot of hassle and money.”
