Pre Purchase Vehicle Inspection

In the market for a new (second-hand) car? It helps to know what you’re buying.

A pre-purchase vehicle inspection is a great way to ensure you’re clear about your next investment. With over 25 years in the automotive industry, our fully qualified mechanics have a sharp eye for detail and hidden faults.

Our service is based in Newcastle, and we’ve saved both local and interstate buyers thousands of dollars on second-hand cars.
Often, a pre-purchase inspection will save someone from buying a vehicle due to expensive repairs. Or it can help our buyers to negotiate a better deal on the car they want.

Dodge a lemon, or drop the asking price to offset repair costs

Our pre-purchase car inspections are in-depth mechanical inspections carried out by a fully qualified mechanic. They aim to find any mechanical issues present with the vehicle, along with visible signs of wear and tear, and a review of the service history.

We provide you with a complete condition report so that you can have the confidence to either proceed with the purchase or dodge a costly investment.

The inspections are typically arranged by the prospective buyer. We are a mobile service, so we carry out the inspection onsite at the seller’s home or work (with their consent). The inspections usually take an hour to complete and include a test drive of the vehicle.

Once the inspection is finished, our mechanics will input the results into a report that gets emailed to you on the same day. The report outlines any issues found with the vehicle so that you can make an informed decision on the purchase. A follow-up phone call can be arranged with our mechanics if requested at the time of booking.
