    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    I remember from previous comments here that many members here did not care if car was damaged before, but as long as it was HPI Clear it was all fine... For those who actually care few examples from our FB (https://www.facebook.com/vcheck.uk/) page, everything "HPI Clear":

    Stolen/recovered

    It is Cat S on HPi as you saw in the report. Tbh it had some airbags deployed, I would say it was a bit more than just stolen ;)

    Stolen/recovered

    The reason would be data collection started only in 2015 so vcheck would not have any salvage records from 2012 ;)

    This was was alerted to us by one of our customers. They said they could not believe it is HPI clear once they got the reg from the seller. Our site only saved his *** from buying it: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201812083100272 True story, should be Cat S again...

    ^^^ it is the same person ;) I link free salvage data I can find online with HPI stuff. I lost faith in Audi drivers anyway, but if was buying 110k car which is Audi Approved I would like to know everything about the car. I am sure when you call up Sytner they will tell you it had side and...

    To summarise, all the checks you do none of them include data from salvage auctions. This was my point. If something comes up as all green on all other checks not necessarily will be the case with salvage auctions check. I hope I made this clear now;)

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    You missed my point completely. I brought examples of used cars which everyone thinks were NOT crashed but in fact they WERE. I don’t want any arguments, I only wanted people to go on free website and put the REG in to check for hidden history. I did everything to help only but if you don’t get...

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    Yes this is exactly what I said;) I am going into circles. If you trade in crash damaged vehicle which went missing from HPI Audi will sell it as Audi Approved. I am not saying Audi has bought from salvage, but I am saying someone has passed it into Audi and because Audi checks all cars via...

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    I am not saying Audi buys from insurance company as I got no evidence they do it themselves and I would have to work at Audi to have real info on what they do under the table but they would be crazy if they did it; but for example someone could have bought this is before and traded in, after...

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    This is what I am trying to achieve, show this is NOT LEGAL but as it currently stands it accepted all over the place and nobody questioned this until our team of guys started working on it. Insurance companies are not selling salvage, they pass it to third parties. The whole point in one...

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    If car was written-off this is official information. It goes via claim, insurance company pays off, category is assigned that's it. This is official and no questions about it.. I just don't know how to explain this in any better way. If you have an accident and you get paid full value (total...

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    OMG..... Can anyone else help here? Those are write-off categories which are total loss. Total-loss is same as write-off. S. Structurally damaged repairable N. Non-structurally damaged repairable It is called repairable as this is type of total loss (not the case with cat A/B) which you can...

    HPI Clear cars which were written off

    So you suggest CAT C/D/S/N are not coming up up n HPI becuse they are not total loss? That is the whole point of HPI, if car was total loss insurance write off then it will be recorded on HPI.

    You getting it all wrong ;) Cat C, D, N & S ARE total loss. You get paid full value of the car. https://www.abi.org.uk/products-and-issues/choosing-the-right-insurance/motor-insurance/written-off-or-total-loss-vehicles/...
