Free UK Car History Check – Internet Secrets

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment

There seem to be a lot of adverts on TV for checking a used car’s history before you buy.

If you are simply browsing Autotrader or other used car websites / magazines you may wish to be able to check a few details without having to pay £3, £5, or even up to £30 straight away…

So here we are going to use the internet to our advantage.

For these websites below all you need is the registration number of the vehicle – they all tell you a few basic things but here I am telling you what they can tell you which is unique to each website.

Number Of Owners?

Car Tax Expiry Date

Is The Vehicle Currently Insured?

Your local police should be able to help you in making sure that the vehicle you are looking at isn’t stolen too which is also helpful. All that really leaves is whether it has been written off and repaired at all….

I have not found a way to check everything for free mainly whether it has been written off (Cat C or D) and if it is stolen or not.

BlackBerry Service Down for 3 Days (and counting)


BlackBerry service which most people pay £5 a month for is still down for the third day leaving users very unhappy. Until now BlackBerry was known for the best and most reliable mobile internet service for their push messaging services.

 

RIM (Research In Motion) the main company behind BlackBerry have said it is an issue with their computer systems and the emergency backup system not working as it should.

BlackBerry stated yesterday that it was up and running once again however many people have found it was still not working for them this morning.

People have compared it to Sony’s PlayStation network going down earlier this year, however hackers are not to blame for this – only BlackBerry / RIM are to blame. BlackBerry are saying it costs 16p a day for the service so are refunding people pennies for the loss whereas Sony gave 3 free games to their customers which would usually cost around £25 – £40 each. Plus PlayStation’s service was free. You can do the maths…

This may have come just in time for Apple with the release of the iPhone 4S – I am sure that many BlackBerry owners will ditch their handsets in favour of the shiny new Apple that hasn’t simultaneously let down their worldwide customer base (yet).

Do you think you should get compensation for this issue? Do you own a BlackBerry? Please comment with your thoughts!
