Vehicles with third-party traces
The high-risk database is a way for the main finance companies (and sometimes the police) to trace and share information on vehicles that are stolen or have outstanding finance.
If the vehicle you're interested in is one of the 190,000 vehicles on the database, a third party has an interest in the vehicle and is trying to locate it and prevent it being sold.
AutoCheck searches the high-risk database for you – do not buy a vehicle that appears in it until our Service Support Team confirms that it is OK to do so.
Why you should beware of cars on the high-risk database
You run the risk of buying a car that's stolen or has outstanding finance. It may be seized and returned to the rightful owner.

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.
