We will then report all the findings and defects to you in a comprehensive and easy to read car inspection report. All you need to do after that is to decide whether you are happy to buy the car or not. Moreover, our report can be a valid proof for the negotiation of the price of the vehicle..

Pre purchase inspection FAQ
Is an inspection worth doing?
For many of us, the idea of buying a used car, whether from a dealer or through a private sale, is a daunting and stressing experience. You’ll be taking a leap of faith, if not an outright gamble, into whether you’re getting good value for your hard-earned cash or buying into someone else problems. Our pre-purchase car inspection is a service designed to take some of that worry out of any such purchase
A pre-purchase inspection is highly recommended when purchasing an used vehicle, with or without a warranty, from a private or a dealer or when the vehicle is located far from you. For this reason, a qualified inspection makes financial sense, avoinding accident/damaged cars, mechanical or cosmetical issues and saving potential costly repairs or problems to the buyer.
