Pre – Purchase Inspections

What Is Pre-Purchase Inspection?

As our name states we know cars and we take our job very seriously. All Pre – purchase inspection’s are performed by licensed mechanics who are trade qualified. They give the vehicle a thorough look-over and carefully inspect the mechanical and safety prospects of the car. Through a proper pre-purchase inspection the mechanic can bring to light any current conditions or potential issues that could appear in the future. We look for accident damage, service history and a comprehensive vehicle history check highlighting finance, theft or damage. Using advanced tools and machinery we also look deep into the electrical health of a car and if there are any fault codes stored.

Why Is Pre-Purchase Inspection Important?

A pre-purchase inspection is essentially a report clarifying the condition of the vehicle. When you find a car you really like don’t jump in and buy until we give you the all clear. People who rush in put themselves in stressful or even financial situations they cannot undo. We see it every day and know what to look for. Brisbane has a high number of repairable write off’s making their way back onto our streets and unsuspecting buyers snap them up. Whether this is a first car or the car of your dreams any capital purchase should have a level of certainty before commitment.
