Search Hint #1 : If you know the
registration number of the vehicle
you're looking for, don't include
manufacturer / model etc. in the search,
as this may reduce your chance of
you've tried for specific reg and it
isn't there, including more to the
search like manuf/model will not help!
Search Hint #2 : Combine
registration number and manufacturer /
model etc. searches when you know only
part of the reg, for example if you're
looking for an 'S' reg Ford XR2, enter
'S' into the reg, choose the 'starts'
option, then enter "XR2"
in the model.
Search Hint #3 : If you do a
registration number search with
'Otherwise known as' included, this can
contain strange data. So when you see
results that don't seem to include the
search you specified, it's because the
match is in that field. (Ideally
'Otherwise known as' should include
previous reg numbers for the vehicle,
but often includes nicknames. And some swear words!)
Search Hint #4 : When entering
the Model / Type, be mindful that this
data is entered by different owners in
different ways, so searching for less is probably more
likely to find your vehicle, for example
searching for 'Escort' will find more
than 'Escort LX'. And of course there are spelling mistakes.
And the difference between Model and Type can be blurred. So, all in all, be less specific!
