VIR® stands for Vehicle Information Report. The VIR® is an instant online report used by car buyers to check for whether the vehicle has money owing, an inconsistent odometer or is reported stolen?
If you buy a car without getting a VIR® you run the risk of it being repossessed or being worth far less than you paid for it.
MotorWeb conduct nearly half-a million VIRs every year. Our VIR® is the most comprehensive report in New Zealand with over 70 checks, including safety and security information (where available). We can check all registered vehicles - cars, trucks, boat trailers, motorcycles and caravans.
In just 15 seconds, a VIR® will comprehensively check the vehicle's history within New Zealand alerting you to important information such as:
If the seller is the registered owner
If the vehicle is reported stolen
If there is money owing (because if there is, the vehicle could be repossessed)
If NZTA have flagged the vehicle as being a flood damaged import or having a wound back or tampered odometer
If there are outstanding Road User Charges
The vehicle's fuel economy ratings
And loads more!
The VIR® provides a full explanation of our findings and what you need to do about them, helping you to make a wise and safe purchase, before any money changes hands.
