Mileage Fraud? One of the easiest to engineer and hardest to detect unless you do a Free Car Checks mileage verification check!
Sometimes a car that has been accident damaged will be repaired and made to look in a far better condition, and the mileage will be altered to reflect that.
Almost ANY damage can be repaired. Don't end up with a car that looked like this before it was repaired! Without a Free Car Checks full report, costing from only £2.99, you can make sure your purchase of a used car didn't look like the one below before it was repaired and and received mileage correction!
Did you know that when a seller states he has 'lost' or 'mislaid' the service history, it could well be that he has done so intentionally.
A private buyer is far more likely to believe the seller when he says the mileage is genuine because he wants to own the vehicle.
A seller that is aware of this will also be aware that the buyer will see more value in the belief that the vehicle is low mileage without the service history present than having it available and showing higher mileage.
