Pre Purchase Inspections

When you buy a car, you may have a number of questions about its condition you may not be able to answer yourself. A vehicle inspection by our experienced team will help you solve any concerns you have so you can buy your car with confidence.

Like many others, you may ask:

  • I’m not a mechanic. How do I know what to check for?
  • Will there be unexpected costs?
  • Is this car safe?
  • Is the car in good shape?
  • What if I don’t have time to get it inspected?
  • What is covered by a car inspection?

With our vehicle inspection, you’ll get:

  • A comprehensive 100+ point vehicle check by a mechanic
  • An overview of any recommended repairs
  • An indication of any potential WOF issues
  • Clarity around the condition of the car before you buy it
  • The choice to come to one of our many site locations NZ wide or we can come to you in Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton or Christchurch.
