Seller Check

Checking the seller is as important as checking the car. A seller may give you false details if they are not the "registered person" (you may be dealing with a stolen vehicle), or if they want to avoid any future problems.

We check with multiple Government agencies to ensure the seller is the "registered person" of the motor vehicle. You will need to obtain the seller's licence details so that we can carry out this check.

A Seller Check is included with every VIR® purchased.

Mechanical check

We'll confirm if there are any flags on the vehicle as being a flood damaged import, or having a wound back or tampered odometer.

You should also consider getting a pre-purchase assessment. An expert will perform a drive test and a complete interior and exterior inspection. Get one at the VTNZ, or from your local mechanic – head to My Auto Shop to get in touch with one today.

Purchase agreement

If the VIR® highlights any issues, you can protect yourself by adding clauses to the Purchase Agreement with a single click - it's that simple.
