Free Autocheck Insurance
AutoCheck relies on data from more than 20 types of provider, such as the police, insurance companies and finance companies.
Mistakes are rare. However, occasionally a piece of data is missing. To ensure you don't suffer a financial loss because of incorrect or incomplete data, we offer insurance for free.
This is included at no extra cost in the AutoCheck and covers the data provided up to the purchase price (to a maximum of £30,000) for two years.
How the insurance works
This insurance is provided on the car you eventually buy (not every car you check). It is arranged by AutoCheck with Pinnacle Insurance plc (Please note that we offer insurance on a non-advisory basis).
Check you qualify
Once you have checked a few cars and made your decision to buy one, check the insurance policy's key facts document and policy to ensure you qualify. This policy meets the demands and needs of those that wish to ensure that the data provided when an AutoCheck is performed is insured, should any of the insured events be disclosed at a later date. The documents show the main benefits(insured events), conditions and exclusions.
Make sure you check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) before you buy, enter it on AutoCheck and we will confirm if it is correct. You need to do this before you can register for the insurance cover.
Register the vehicle
As soon as possible after you have purchased the car, return to this site and register the AutoCheck Insurance. You will need to tell us:
- The purchase date,
- The amount you paid,
- Whether it was a private sale, from a motor dealer, car supermarket or auction.

Help and advice
Some relevant frequently asked questions
I have purchased a Multiple Check and I haven't used them all, why can't I do any more checks?
It is more than likely you have either registered your insurance, in which case any remaining checks will become void, or you have passed your 60 day time limit and your account has expired.
If I purchase a multiple check and I do not wish to use them all can I get a refund?
No, a multiple check is so you can check UP TO 5 vehicles. Any unused checks are non-refundable.
When does the 60 days start? When I register, purchase or when I check the first vehicle?
The 60 days start from the date of purchase of the AutoCheck.
Can you buy a check over the phone?
This service is an online service only, so we are unable to carry out a check over the phone.
Thank goodness for AutoCheck! It saved me a 130 mile-round trip and stopped me buying a clocked, written off car. What a fantastic service
The primary reason I chose AutoCheck was to make sure the car did not still have finance outstanding. I can't thank AutoCheck enough as, by choosing their report over others, I escaped inheriting a significant amount of debt held against the vehicle. Because of this I'd always recommend AutoCheck over other vehicle check providers.
