RAC vehicle data checks now cover vans

The RAC has extended its popular vehicle check service to cover light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

The online service is priced at £14.99 and provides invaluable information to prospective buyers on the vehicle’s history. Buyers can find out in seconds whether the LCV they are looking to buy is stolen, written-off or still on finance. Beyond this, the RAC vehicle check provides a personalised valuation, to confirm whether the asking price is fair or not, as well as a checklist of things to look for when viewing the vehicle which could help in negotiating on price.

RAC director of motoring services Rob Diamond said: “Our comprehensive vehicle data check product has already given thousands of motorists greater confidence when buying a used car, so we are pleased to now be able to extend the service and offer it to businesses in the market for their next LCV.

“The LCV market is booming and there are bargains to be had in the private used market in particular, but understandably small businesses looking for their next vehicle will want some reassurance that their purchase is a good one – not least because small businesses clock up so many more miles per year on average than private motorists.

"A vehicle check can really help here – for instance, it is the case that many LCVs are originally bought on finance and an SME will not want to be stung with being responsible for another firm’s outstanding debts.”
