GAUK Motors Undertake Intensive Research Program

A couple of years ago GAUK Motors undertook an intensive research program. We interviewed senior police officers, car dealers and even those who made their living from car crime.

The original brief was to uncover the 'tricks and secrets of the trade, the public ought to know'.  

The result of that study is a no-nonsense guide which has to be the most comprehensive ever written.

The guide takes the innocent car buyer on a step-by-step inspection of the prospective vehicle. It teaches them everything the professionals look for when trying to establish the authenticity of a motorcar.

The guide is broken into 4 easy-to- follow sections:


The first contact you have with the seller of the car will probably be over the phone. You can save yourself a lot of time and wasted viewings by sorting the dogs from the genuine article in the comfort of your own home - just by asking the right questions.


Recent police figures suggest that 1 in 3 cars have a hidden history!

Most cars will have some sort of knock during their life; this is a normal part of driving on today's roads. The problem arises when you're sold a motor that has been in a bad accident then repaired in a back-street garage and passed off as being straight.

There's a lot of money to be made in bodging together a badly damaged vehicle, so unfortunately for you, there are a lot of people at it!


One of the most common car crimes these days is that of winding back the odometer on a high mileage car - 'clocking' in the trade. GAUK Motors have researched thoroughly the art of mileage adjustment by talking to those in the know ... and we show you exactly how to spot them!!!


A massive, and growing problem faced today is that of car theft. The odds of buying a stolen car are stacked very high ... against you!

GAUK Motors have worked closely with the police force and interviewed criminals to learn what the car thieves are up to. In the course of our information service we will pass on to you, the car buyer, that very valuable knowledge.

We feel that if you know how the criminals work you know what to look out for...    


At the end of the guide you'll find a simple, easy to use V.U.It-Check-List, which will assist you in rating the overall value of that used car you are considering.

Just print it out BEFORE you lay out your hard earned money. We promise you'll be glad you did!

You can always trust the vehicle checking organisations ... Can't You?

There are vehicle checking organisations out there but they can only go on the information given to them by you and their computers. Unfortunately, there are numerous ways to fool their checks; they don't have the car in front of them and it's not their hard-earned cash on the line. The buck stops with you!
