  9. Just found out today that our HPI check price had gone up in March and we were not informed. Currently we are paying £3.65, If id known I would have reverted back to Autotrader's Experian check through dealer portal which is at £3.50 (I also noticed you can add a CAP valuation for 60p and Glasses for 50p) As you can imagine HPI will not budge on price so they've lost our business... Now we have the RAC as a new player on the market, so for you dealers that are unaware, the cheapest option which offers the same service is the RAC passport check... This is priced for us at £2.99 as we do under 5,000 checks Pricing -1 - 5,000 £2.99 5,000 - 10,000 £2.49 10,000 - 25,000 £1.99 25,000 - 50,000 £1.49 50,000+POA Hope this has saved at least one of you guy's some money!
