Cartell, Ireland’s first and No.1 car history check was launched in May 2006 to help the consumer and dealers make an informed and secure choice when purchasing a used vehicle. Being the first to introduce this invaluable service to Ireland, our experience in the industry has made ‘getting a Cartell Car Check’ a commonly used phrase. But if you want a vehicle history check carried out by the real experts, always look for the official Cartell logo.

We have access to more car data than anyone else and our thorough investigations have helped thousands of people avoid purchasing cars that have been clocked, written-off, ex-taxi, or that have unpaid finance against them, saving them from unnecessary costs and heartache. Our research estimated that up to 1 in 3 used vehicles has an undesirable history, so it was clear that an effective solution to this problem was put in place to help protect Irish consumers.

Our Business – Your Protection

Cartell is a totally independent and wholly owned Irish company. Car history checking is Cartell’s core business which has no distractions or conflicts of interest. Cartell is more than just a website. Cartell’s role in the second-hand car market is crucial. It is a tool to help Irish consumers and dealers purchase safer vehicles secure in the knowledge that it has been independently checked out. Cartell works closely with Government services and other sectors to establish, verify and record the history on a vehicle.

Cartell – Our Mission

We are a consumer and dealer driven service. We provide the Irish car-buying public and motor dealers with an effective safeguard against fraud. This is done through a user-friendly, cost-effective and totally independent car history check, which is being continuously upgraded and expanded.
