How to do an Irish Finance Check?

Enter the Registration Number in the box and click ‘Go’. Cartell will return the Make, Model and a few details about the vehicle. Make sure that this is the correct vehicle before proceeding. You will see that you have 3 options. 1) Irish History Only, 2) Irish Finance Only 3) Irish History and Finance (Recommended). For an Irish finance check, select the ‘Irish Finance Only’ button. This will start the Irish finance check for you. Irish finance checks normally take about 4 minutes as we need to query the HPI(Ireland) and verify the details with the finance houses. All results will be delivered by email and a free text message and stored in your ‘Previous Checks’. You will receive one of 3 types of results. 1) The vehicle is on finance and we supply you with the details, Bank, account number, agreement date, agreement type and term. 2) The vehicle is clear from finance and 3) we need to investigate further. When you receive this result it means that we need to contact the finance house to verify the result. You do not need to do anything as one of the 2 results above will be forwarded onto you when the investigation is complete.

How do I receive a Cartell Car Check by email?

All Cartell Car Checks are emailed instantly to you unless you request a Finance Check when we must wait for Irish finance. If you have not received an email, please check your spam filter as some email suppliers direct our emails to spam folders. If you still have no email then please contact Customer Care and they will verify that we have the correct email address for you and re-email you your report if necessary.
