What is a MotorWeb Basic Report?

The MotorWeb Basic Report is displayed on vehicle listings where a report has been purchased – it indicates whether the vehicle has been reported stolen, has money owing, or is a damaged import. The report is current at the time requested and contains information sourced from NZTA (New Zealand Transport Agency) and MBIE (Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment).

We recommend buyers get a Vehicle Information Report (VIR) from MotorWeb before you purchase a vehicle. It’s important that you know the history of the vehicle you’re about to buy. If you buy a car without getting a VIR you run the risk of it being repossessed or being worth far less than you paid for it.
