Here’s why you should use Checka

Buying a vehicle can be a stressful experience and you want to make sure you’re making a good decision. Checka takes some of that pre-purchase stress away. We pull together data from NZ Transport Agency, RightCar and New Zealand Companies Office Personal Property Securities Register to give you one comprehensive report. We do the hard work so you know if a vehicle you like is roadworthy and a smart choice.

What a Checka report tells you

A Checka report tells you a wide range of important vehicle details, including recall and defect alerts:

  • Debts registered against the vehicle
  • Odometer readings
  • Ownership history
  • Previous number plates
  • Registration status — is it current or expired?
  • Warrant of fitness (WOF) or certificate of fitness (COF) status — current or expired?
  • Road user charges (RUC) status
  • If the vehicle is New Zealand new
  • If the vehicle was imported damaged
  • If the vehicle has previously been deregistered
  • Government fuel economy and safety ratings
  • Engine number, VIN, chassis number, and other details
