    Any that are better than the others? All seem to be in the £10-20 range. Was hoping for free but nothing seems to have turned up.

    Full HPI checks are never free, I think there's a fee the DVLA charges these companies so they need to at least make some money to run the service. Anyway, they all basically offer the same thing so it doesn't really matter which one you pick, just make sure you complete the full check (with the VIN) before you actually buy the car.

    Thanks. Will almost certainyl be purchasing through a main dealer so would expect they would do their own checks, worth it for the peace of mind though.

    For the sake of a tenner it's definitely worth it. After all that's a small fraction of the cost of the car itself, and if something does go wrong it may well come in handy!
