If you are considering buying any item of high value (like a car, truck, trailer etc) from a private individual it is important to make sure there is no other security registered against it. The most common use of the PPSR is for motor vehicles. The Register can tell you whether the vehicle is under finance, has ever been reported stolen, has ever been reported as a write off – and even the build date of the vehicle. If you are considering finance for a large purchase Astute will check the register for you free of charge as part of our service.
