Prepurchase Inspection

Pre-purchase inspections are carried out for vehicles being sold either by private sale or through a motor car trader. Inspectors carry out a detailed visual inspection, an engine test and a road test, and then provide a detailed report giving you the information you need to make an informed decision.

It's a small investment that could save you thousands in the long run, not to mention the hassle. Do not get confused a roadworthy certificate or a VIC yellow slip is not a comprehensive report of the vehicles mechanical condition or panel repairs condition. The modern motor vehicle is a complex piece of engineering requiring a specialist inspection. Get it thoroughly checked before you buy with a pre-purchase inspection.

We can provide you with peace of mind when buying a used vehicle. A full workshop inspection by a Vicroads license tester with a background in smash repairs, on a hoist with all the time the inspector needs, we'll examine, test and assess the cars condition and operation, not in a street, on garage floor or drive way. Make sure you get a professional pre-purchase inspections, before you buy your next used car.

We will provide you with a detailed independent report which will help you decide whether or not to buy. General things you should know about a vehicle includes:

  • Has it been regularly serviced?
  • Has it been thrashed on cold mornings?
  • Has it been in a major accident?
  • Has it been fiddled with, or fitted with incorrect parts?
  • How many of the hidden parts are showing signs of serious wear?
  • Would you buy a car which showed evidence of ill-treatment?

With a pre-purchase inspection, you get a full workshop inspection of the vehicle and a fully itemised report on its assessd condition covering: engine and transmission, fluid, seals and hoses, electrical system, cooling system, steering and suspension, driveline components, braking system, under body components, body fit and repairs, accessories and much more!
