We don’t have a crystal ball, but we do all have something that can help us find out whether a second-hand car has had any past problems. more info…

Who Are The MIB?

Incidents and accidents involving uninsured vehicles are becoming a huge problem on our roads. Many drivers of new and used cars find themselves unable to make an insurance claim for an accident that wasn’t their fault, all because the other driver involved had no insurance. Hit and run incidents, in which a driver leaves the scene of the accident are also worryingly common.
