2. The MotorWeb VIR® is backed by a Repossession Guarantee

We're the only company in NZ that has a Repossession Guarantee.

If the vehicle you are about to buy is repossessed because it had money owing (registered security) or is seized because it was flagged as reported stolen, and that information was available to us at the time but was not displayed on the VIR®, we will compensate you up to $100,000.

3. Our Past Plate Check™ uncovers hidden debts

Our comprehensive Past Plate Check™ uncovers hidden debts on all past plates associated with the vehicle's history.

Finance companies normally register outstanding money against the vehicle's registration plate. However, if the registration plates are changed, the vehicle may appear debt-free when it’s not.

Our Past Plate Check™ protects you from hidden debts by checking for money owing on all previous registration plates, giving you peace of mind.

4. We provide NZ's most comprehensive report

The MotorWeb VIR® includes over 70 vehicle history checks (the actual number of checks is determined by what's applicable to each vehicle). We report on important safety and security features (when available) such as:

  • ABS
  • brake assist
  • electronic brake force distribution
  • airbags - front, rear and side
  • automatic stability control
  • traction control
  • factory engine immobilizer
  • seat belt load limiters
  • rear distance park control
