Hi, Unfortunately we are charged money to access the finance check part so aren't able to provide it for free, as much as we'd like to.
Very easy to use but sadly did not offer more in depth searches about damage etc. I had to pay another site for this.

Never ever use this site to check car history. It supplied me a lot of incorrect and misleading information. I wanted to give zero rating but no option. Do not waste your money and time. Go for total car check. It provides me a lot of useful information before you buy any car. I have complaint about it and I want my money back. I just waiting for their response.

Dear Altaf, As per our Terms of Use, unfortunately we don't normally provide refunds once the data check has been purchased. The reason is because we are charged money ourselves to access the data. If the data is inaccurate, we will issue a full refund, but your claim that the colour of the vehicle is blue and our website shows it in grey, is simply because all of the vehicle images are in grayscale i.e. black and white. There is a notice at the bottom of each vehicle image pointing this out.
Total waste of money I was expecting a report on repairs to payed 10pound for something I already new very dissatisfied stay well clear and save your money.

Hi David, Vehicle repair history isn't logged anywhere except with the company or manufacturer. We don't get access to that information, and don't claim to. The same is true for all HPI Check style companies. Our free sample report clearly lists everything included with each Premium report.
Hi David, Thanks for using FreeCarCheck. Unfortunately, our data checks don't show service history or vehicle repair history - that information is logged only by the vehicle manufacturer and not shared with us (or anyone). Depending on the age of the car, it may not even be logged at all. We do provide a free sample that highlights what is included in our Premium reports, you can view this at
this site gives vastly inaccurate information Total, complete utter waste of time and most certainly DO NOT pay for false data

Hi Susan, I can't find your order using the email address given. Are you sure that you're not getting us confused with another company? All our data in each Premium report is covered by our Data Guarantee so we have to make sure that it's accurate.
I pay to get history about my car SL58GJE and I did not get anything

So very sorry to hear about this. We process many checks a day without issue. I have checked your order and can see that it was processed fully, and an email was also sent out to you confirming the check. Did you check your spam folder? Please can you contact us, the FreeCarCheck support team, via the Support Centre if you are still struggling. We are here to help 7 days a week.
Inaccurate info , very misleading - I wish to get my money back . Last record shows me outstanding finance form 2017 with is not true. Very limited reports - do not recommend to anyone .

All i was after was my cars service history?
Helpful Report
Car service history isn't something that we get access to (and neither do any vehicle history check services). This is strictly controlled by the vehicle manufacturer. If in doubt it's always best to check the free sample at to see what is, and isn't, inside our Premium vehicle reports.
Says get you vrm from your vin number ? unless I'm blind or dumb it does now show this.
Helpful Report
Hi Carlos, You need to contact us with the VIN and we will check it for you that way for free.
I tried a number - car doesn't exist apparently. Funny. It's on my drive
Helpful Report
Hello, Please contact us at and we will look into this for you. Unfortunately if our data provider does not recognise the number plate there's no much we can do. Normally, these types of issues are because the vehicle is on a foreign plate or is an import.
Says it’s a free service then wants to charge you £10 for the information it initially says is free. False advertising and should not be allowed to advertise in such a way n

The check and the cost is very much the same as others, although there are much cheaper in the market as well. This web page does not allow to go back to my original search page which is truly a pain ......
Helpful Report
Misguided by your wrong review rating advertised on your website, checked few reg numbers and none of them worked.
Helpful Report
Unfortunately the information provided about the vehicle was wrong in a number of important respects. The check had to be repeated through Experian. This caused delay and inconvenience and some embarrassment and alarm for the seller. Please will you refund the fee. I look forward to confirmation that this has been done. Yours Richard Gregory
