Chassis number

Double check a piece of sheet metal on which contains the chassis number of cars and check on all sides that it is not safe or later that the numbers of different forms. Write down the number and check the standard roads or through any of our friends in the police, especially if they are able to access the data of Interpol.

Check the damages

When observing the car, it is always a good idea to take a look at the possible damages that could have been made if the car is stolen. Double check the area around the door lock and the ignition key. Even the least damage can be a sign that the car was stolen.

Check the original parts

Locks and keys should be original, and if something does not respond immediately, the smartest thing would be to cancel the purchase of that car. If there are two different keys to lock the steering wheel and lock door that adds to a suspicion. All glasses should have a default label. Changed steering wheel or the gear lever are also suspicious elements and approach that vehicle with caution. Do not be fooled by the attraction of sports gearbox and steering wheel.

Freshly painted car

The fresh paint is considered suspicious, which may indicate traces of eventual theft. Make an effort to thoroughly examine all the documents.
