There is no easy way of finding out if the vehicle you buy is a clone. A vehicle check won’t be able to identify a cloned car, but it will tell you if a vehicle has been stolen, written off, scrapped or has outstanding finance.
The Best on the market is is a HPI check
Over 450,000 cars
are 'written-off' by insurers annually because of accident damage. Many are written
off because the insurance company deem it incapable of safe repair. Make sure
that you don't buy the one thats been sneaked back on the road again.
Also make sure
that there is no outstanding finance on your car.
There are three main ways to spot a clone
Check the log book
Inspect the car
Identify the VIN (vehicle identity number).
If the seller won’t let you do any of these, walk away from any sale.
