Getting van details from reg number

Hey guys

Is there any way to get the van spec from a reg number?

I'm wanting to find out if it's a short or long wheelbase and if it has a standard roof or high roof etc.

Before you say ask your client, half the time I'm not even sure they know it's a van.

I know you can type in the reg number online and get some details but I don't think it goes that in-depth.

Sometimes I just want to double check the information is correct.

Speak with a local friendly garage. They'll probably have access to more information, as they'll source parts for the vehicle?

You could possibly use a 'compare insurance' search or even the DVLA website - DVLA vehicle search

Thanks Peter.

DVLA doesn't seem to give that much information but I have found that webuyanycar does although it all depends if it was registered correctly and I know for a fact that admin staff at showrooms can get it wrong a lot of the time so I think I'll just ask to see the van to make sure.

askMID should give you the exact model including SWB/LWB. After that, go to the manufacturer's website and find full specs.

You need this app on your phone Daniel its called Total Car Check the best thing about this app is it also gives you any MOT History and when your car tax is Due , once you’ve done a Free email sign up you get full use, heres the website but if you go to the App Store or google store on your smart phone there is an app for it https://totalcarcheck.co.uk My vehicle attached

It is an excellent app it even helps when youre mot is due i looked at the app one day showing some Garage and realised my MOT had lapsed by 3 months,, whoops it does actually give you an MOT reminder as well i Just stupidly ignored it as i had a very busy week and needed my van , but then forgot to book it in! all sorted now

Re: Getting van details from reg number

I would imagine that app still relies on it being registered correctly in the first place though Daniel so still always best to ask :lol: :lol:

Jamie, you were lucky not to have been stopped the number of police cars now fitted with numberplate recognition, my road tax was out of date by about 4 months without me realising & I was surprised I didn't get stopped during that time, I don't pay road tax but I would still have got fined for it being out of date :blushing:
