HPI Check is a vehicle history check service provided exclusively by HPI in the UK. HPI pioneered the vehicle history check in 1938. The HPI Check produces a report that provides information about a vehicle's history, mainly if it has outstanding finance, or if it is written off, stolen or clocked, among other things.
The term "HPI Check" is a term widely used to describe an actual vehicle history check thought-out the motoring industry in the UK. However, "HPI Check" is a registered trade name of HPI.
An HPI Check is usually performed just before purchasing a used car from a dealer or a private buyer to discover whether the vehicle has a hidden history. The check can reveal vital alerts that can help protect used car buyers from fraudsters. An HPI Check does not only check the history of used cars but can be used to check any vehicle that is registered with the DVLA including; vans, motorbikes, quad bikes and motor homes.
The HPI Check history report data comes from the DVLA, the National Mileage Register, Police records, insurance companies, finance houses and industry bodies. The HPI Check Report is available to both consumers and dealers all over the UK.
