If you’re in New South Wales and looking to buy a used car, you should always conduct a REVS Check (also known as a VIN Check) before making any decisions.
What does a REVS Check do? It tells you whether your pick is on the Register of Encumbered Vehicles and has money owing from the previous owner. If it does, the relevant creditor may be able to repossess it.
In NSW alone, a whopping 5.25 million vehicles have been registered for that year, accounting for a 2.8% increase in registration from the previous year. You certainly don’t want to inherit someone else’s debt along with your new car; the REVS Check NSW ensures you won’t.
To do your REVS Check in NSW with CarHistory.com.au all you need is your vehicle VIN or Chassis number, registration number and engine number. Unfortunately, there’s a lot more information you need before you can be really sure you’re not buying a lemon.
If a REVS Check can’t tell you everything you need to know, where else do you go to for information? Nearly 12% of Australians in the market for a used car ask their father for advice. Now we’re not saying you shouldn’t go to dear old dad, but 23% of those who ask someone else end up with a dud – so you could be putting yourself at risk.
