3 min read

Before you buy a used car from NSW you would surely want to know a few things about it. Even if you get the information from the car seller, you would want to cross-check the information. The best way to do this is to Buy an affordable and quick REVS check Report in New South Wales.

As the REVS is no more available the details can be found at the PPSR or Personal Property Securities Register. This will not only give details about vehicles but also about the property. All details regarding your car and if there is any finance on it, will be mentioned here. You can also find if the car is a stolen one or written off. Let us see in detail how to make the search on PPSR.

What Do You Need?

Before you begin the search keep the below things handy.

  1. Your credit card/debit card information for making the payment.
  2. VIN, Chassis number or Manufacturer’s number. For all vehicles that are registered after

    1989 there will be a VIN number.

  1. Your e-mail id. Even if there is no e-mail id the detail will be available online

You can begin the search by watching the animated instructions so that you can understand the procedure better. You can stop the animation any time you want.

On the first page, you should click the “search by serial number” option. This will lead you to the next screen. In the next screen, first, you should select the “Motor Vehicle” option. Below that you will get three options.
