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.

Top Legit Reasons To Jailbreak Your iPhone

The iPhone is a great phone with many features but some simple features that you can find on many other cheaper phones have, for some reason, been left out. In this article I will point out these ‘missing’ features that can help you use your phone quicker and smoother on a regular basis. This article is not about downloading ‘illegal’ apps for free that you would normally have to pay for through the App Store.

As iOS 5 has only just been released, the first list below shows software that you can download through Cydia to bring your phone up-to-spec with iOS 5.

Pre iOS 5

1. Volume button for camera

2. WiFi Sync

3. Lock Info – Like notifications on iOS5

4. Call Bar – Incoming notifications banner.

This list is mainly for users on iOS 5 who already have the features above and want to further improve their iPhone’s uses.

iOS 5

1. Time stamp – Date & Time with each individual text message instead of ‘once every so often’.

2. Winterboard – Custom themes

3. Copic – puts photos next to contacts in call log, address book and messages.

This article is a work in progress and will be updated in the future.

If you know of any extras to add to either list please let us know!
