"Does what it says on the tin. All relevant information I required was presented in any easyformat. The only thing it didn't include was MOT data, which should be included as its free to obtain. I had a question regarding the report which I emailed customer services about. My answer was dealt with efficiently with a thorough explanation to my query. Would highly recommend spending £2 before purchasing a motor."

"Was a brilliant app until they updated it and made it rubbish. Why do all apps think updates make them better when 90% of the time it makes them harder to use than it used to be!! Wasn’t broke so stop trying to fix it!!!"

Hi Thanks for your feedback. Many changes have been made to the app that were necessary for technical, legal and commercial reasons. Whilst we appreciate that not everyone will be happy with the number and scale of changes we've made, the vast majority of users have carried on as normal and have been unaffected. Thanks.

"My son was on his way to buy a car from a private seller and I told him to check it’s details.i did a check for him and told him to turn around as soon as he could.your database confirmed my suspicion that it was a pile of junk.never seen a car with so many failures,thanks for saving his pennies."

"So much worse than the previous app! Produces a generic value based on average mileage instead of asking for exact mileage which was the case with previous app. I paid for a valuation and it simply gave me the value shown in the free factsheet. Rubbish! Really really bad that I lost all of my previous, paid for checks when they changed the app. Some had been bought within the last few weeks for £10’s of pound!!"

Hi, many thanks for your feedback. When we set about re-building our new website and app, saving, converting and presenting old data was a big challenge. So we carried out research to understand the need for it. This research suggested that there was little value in a customer accessing old checks, particularly free look-ups, therefore we did not build it in to the new website and app. We are looking at adding the mileage-specific valuation feature in the near future, unfortunately it didn't make our initial release! We hope that you check back with us in the future and are able to utilise some of the useful and interesting features we'll be releasing over the coming months. Many thanks.

"NOW I PHONED David after the car check which turned out to be incredibly helpful and has saved me a fortune . The report gave me more info than discussing with the seller and David gave me very clear guide line. If in doubt spend a little to SAVE a lot and have piece of mind."

"So it was time to buy a newer used car, given how many used car dealerships there are away from the big names, My Car Check proved priceless. I chose the Gold level check which covered everything I wanted to know for a mere £9.95. Prior to this check I got as much information about the car I was interested in off the dealer, then carried out the check and cross referenced the information to see if anything stood out. It let me see past MOT's and any advisories combined with all dates these were carried out. Whether there was any outstanding finance, if the registration plates had ever been changed or if it was ever a stolen recovered vehicle etc .. It also lets you carry out a free VIN Number check, which I did on the forecourt with the car in front of me. In a nutshell, all cars have a past but this checking tool will not only provide peace of mind but could potentially save you thousands of pounds simply by doing some reasearch BEFORE you buy. Well worth £9.95!"

"On entering the details of my daughters car we found a red flag for finance. We purchased the car from Availbale and contacted them, they ran a HPI check which is clear of any outstanding finance. The mycarcheck was inaccurate, I will not be using them again!!"

"Very happy with the service provided, very detailed report, the vehicle came back as having finance outstanding but the owner had informed me he had paid it, rang customer services and they was very helpful and phoned the finance company to check whether it was clear and it hadn't. I was told by them to contact the seller to get it cleared, he eventually did clear it, I rang customer services again and they again rang the finance company, this time the finance was now clear and was safe to go ahead. Very good service indeed"
