Looking for a Vehicle Valuation or hpi check?

crush watch

Protect your assets from being crushed or sold.

Unique to cap hpi, crushwatch notifies lenders if their funded vehicles are seized by the Police or the DVLA, for being either untaxed or uninsured.

Enforcement agencies check with cap hpi before disposing of a vehicle to see if it has outstanding finance registered. Email alerts are sent to the lender notifying them which compound the vehicle is being held at so you can easily recover the asset, and the agency is notified of your interest.
