Trade Checking

Checking on Trace is FREE of charge for the second-hand trade. Simply register on this site and you will be able to search the system in the same way as a citizen or the Police.

Trace is not designed as a due diligence tool for trade users as it does not provide proof of search in a verifiable format nor does it provide a report that can be provided to potential buyers of the item.

Trace CheckMEND partnership

However Trace has teamed up with CheckMEND the worlds largest property history reporting service where all these functions are available.

Along with Trace's data you will have access to their database of over 150 billion records of property history information that covers confirmation of item identity, loss, counterfeit, cloned, insurance claims, warranty claims, restrictions on international use on cell phones, number of previous owners etc.

In addition all your searches are stored in your CheckMEND account and can be accessed at any time, and every search is accompanied by a report in a PDF format you can print out and supply to any buyer. Each report has a unique ID which you can quote on any online advert so prospective buyers can view the report for FREE from the CheckMEND website.
