Background Check is an add-on service that allows you to easily highlight to buyers key criteria about a vehicle you are selling, helping them put their mind at ease about the history of that vehicle. Things like whether the vehicle is stolen, has money owing, was a damaged import or if it's been re-registered.
By analysing your most recent Car Check report on a vehicle, we can extract the key data from it and allow you the option to supply it to sites like Trade Me and your own website*, so it can be displayed to buyers in an easy to understand format.
