A full Car History Report provides more extensive information on a used car.

When buying a used car it’s important to be aware of the car’s history so you can be confident your purchase will be problem free. A PPSR search (formerly REVs) only provides information on whether there is money owing on the vehicle or if it has been reported stolen however a full Car History Report provides more extensive information on a used car including:

  • PPSR (formerly REVs) check to see if finance is owing on it from a previous owner
  • If the vehicle has been previously written off
  • If the vehicle is listed as stolen
  • Known odometer readings to identify any odometer discrepancies
  • Registration details
  • Sales listing history
