Partnering with MotorCheck

the UK's 'trade only' car history check operator
21st May 2018

We have now partnered with, the UK's 'trade only' car history check operator as our preferred provider for Specification data and Car History Check reports.

As a result of the partnership, Dealers using 'AutoHub', our stock management system, will now be able to create extremely detailed classified listings as well as view and share the market leading MotorCheck Car History Check directly from the AutoHub dashboard.

The MotorCheck integration means AutoHub can send full specification and technical details for a dealers used car inventory directly to the dealers own website as well as their chosen advertising partners without incurring any additional data license fees.

Shane Teskey, Co-Founder of explains

"It's our view that a single used car will have a single buyer and it's only fair that the seller should have a single charge for the data used to advertise it. We make our data available on a simple 'per click - per car' model making it a very cost effective way to broadcast stock. We don't charge any additional fees to the seller's advertising partners nor is our data linked to any specific industry code that could require other third party licenses. It's all provided behind the vehicle registration number which gives our customers complete flexibility."

AutoHub was developed by us as an independent solution that offers a standalone stock management platform. It publishes to all the major classified operators as well as many smaller ones too.

Rob Queen, Starkwood's Managing Director says

"For AutoHub, the delivery of quality data underpins our entire proposition. When it first came to choosing a data partner, MotorCheck stood out as a very interesting alternative to the usual operators. Our analysis of the various providers showed MotorCheck leading the way for ease of Use, flexibility, efficiency, accuracy, reliability and Cost. It was easy therefore to take the decision to include their data service as part of our overall solution".

The data partnership is not limited to specification and technical data. The latest update to AutoHub brings MotorCheck's market leading Car History Check directly to the platform too.

Rob Queen added.

"This latest enhancement gives dealers the opportunity to perform a provenance check within AutoHub and share the results with its website and advertising partners. With over 150 dealers already benefitting from the MotorCheck integration, the results so far have been truly impressive. Our customers are delighted with the very high quality of MotorCheck data and we look forward to building it into more of our applications as we develop our offering."

I am now concentrating on collecting as many email addresses as possible from all enquiries so having the facility for my website visitors to subscribe is going to create more opportunities for my business. I also like the idea of sending 500 subscribers my stocklists/offers at the touch of a button.
