Frequently Asked Questions

Have you got a lot of questions about your car? ChecknBuy has the answers for you!

Buying a car can be a daunting experience. There’s a lot that you need to consider and plenty of information you should get your hands on. But what reports should you read before you hand over your hard-earned cash?

Here is some of the information that ChecknBuy can provide to ensure you’re getting exactly what you paid for.

Included in the report is a Personal Property Securities Register Certificate (PPSR). This will tell you if any money is owing on the vehicle you’re looking to purchase. If there is finance outstanding, the certificate will include details such as the name and address of the creditor, details of the vehicle recorded on PPSR, the date the interest was recorded on PPSR, and the type of interest.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you purchase a vehicle with money owing on it, that debt legally becomes your responsibility.

You’ll also be able to find out the true odometer reading, in case the owner has rolled it back, as well as the service history and a range for the value of the car.

A written-off check will state if the car has previously been declared as a write-off. A vehicle that has been written-off generally has been damaged to such an extent due to severeimpactthat its deemed uneconomical to repair by an insurance company. It also dramatically effects the value of the car.

The report will indicate if the vehicle's odometer reading is accurate. Some owners may have tried to wind it back based on the car's known odometer history, or they’ve gathered data from independent third-party sources within the automotive industry. ChecknBuy recommends that you review the vehicle's logbooks and service history in conjunction with the CarHistory report to determine the vehicle's odometer reading accuracy.

This report will tell you if the car is currently reported as stolen.

If the vehicle has an active registration, this report will state the registration plate number, expiry date for the registration, and the state in which the vehicle is registered.

This will tell you how many times the vehicle has been listed for sale.

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is checked against the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries to ensure that it corresponds to a real car. The report also includes details of the vehiclesuch as the make, model, series, body, year (first retail date), colour, fuel type, and fuel consumption.

Here you can find out how much your car is worth in the current market.

A price comparison chart is included with the CarHistory report to indicate where your car sits in the current market. It also compares your car with reported odometer readings and saleprice listings for similar vehicles.

You’ll also receive information on the vehicle's first sale, including what it was used for. It will tell you if your car was purchased for private or non-private use, such as a taxi, rental, or fleet car.

All CarHistory reports contain the ANCAP five-star rating and overall green rating.

A PPSR search helps you avoid the risks involved when buying a used car. This is especially important if you buy from a private seller as opposed to a licensed car dealer. The search can tell you if you’re about to buy a vehicle that has a security interestdebt, is stolen, or has ever been written off.
