TER Check Certificate

COVID19 Update 29 May 2020

 TER is still working for you.

All checks submitted through the website will be completed. However, the response time may be slower as our team is working remotely and several of the external agencies we use are not fully staffed, which could cause delays.

Our phone lines are open  – please call us on 01225 464599 between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm Monday to Friday.

If outside these hours please email; and we will respond asap.

Unfortunately, during the lockdown, equipment thieves have been very active – and in some cases, theft may not be discovered until the lockdown is lifted. 

In the last 4 weeks, we have seen a sharp increase in the number of items reported stolen and checks that uncover a stolen item for sale. 

When buying a used item, it is important to check the serial number with TER but also to request supporting documentation – i.e. logbook, service documents, receipt from the previous owner – and make a record of the seller’s contact details, including, where available, their vehicle registration number

TER Theft Check (£10.00+VAT)
Check equipment to see if it is listed as stolen on our database of over 1,600,000 items.

TER Theft & Finance Check (£30.00+VAT)
Also checks for outstanding finance and includes a search against the HPI database.

Due to EU privacy laws, TER can only check theft and finance data from the UK only, we have no access to data outside the UK

We complete checks within 20 minutes during normal working hours Monday to Friday, outside these hours it may take longer if we have to verify information with other organisations.

To conduct a check, Please register your details below, (name, address, email and phone number)  or sign in using your email address if you have registered before, enter the Make, model, serial number (preferably the full 17 digit Vin number) and the road registration number (if applicable) and we will start your check

Once completed, we will issue a TER Check Certificate showing proof that the item is not registered as stolen or has outstanding finance (if it is a theft and finance check) on the databases we check at the time it was checked.

If you have not had a response from TER please check your spam/junk mail to see if our email response has been sent there.
