Pre-Purchase Car Inspections Save You Money in the Long Run:
Think of pre-purchase inspections as a kind of insurance, either giving you peace of mind that nothing on the car is going to fail soon, or providing you with fair warning of any potential issues. It’s always worth getting a pre-purchase inspection performed by a knowledgeable mechanic, regardless of if you’re purchasing from a dealer or individual, as you’ll be saving yourself money in the long run; our hourly rate is significantly less than the cost of something like a transmission replacement.
Isn’t a Safety Certificate Enough?
Safety certificates ensure the car can operate safely, but they don’t tell you if the vehicle has been properly serviced or maintained, and mechanical faults can be imminent despite a valid safety certificate. Some sellers make efforts to hide problems in the short-term, making your test drive feel great, and stinging you shortly thereafter. Sometimes it’s simply not worth the repair costs, and for the money that you would spend repairing the vehicle, you could use towards a vehicle in better shape.
When performing a pre-purchase inspection, we thoroughly inspect all areas of the vehicle that we would during a major service, not just visually, but also physically testing them during an on-road test. In addition to checking for mechanical faults and wear, we’ll also look for and take note of cosmetic faults, including evidence of accident repair. After we’ve completed the inspection of your vehicle, we’ll provide you with a detailed report that outlines the areas that need attention.
