Why Opt for a Pre-purchase Inspection?

A pre-purchase inspection is a crucial step before finalizing any used vehicle purchase. It involves a detailed examination of the car’s mechanical, safety, and cosmetic conditions to identify any existing problems or potential future issues. This service helps you avoid expensive repairs and provides negotiation leverage in terms of price or repair agreements.

Transmission and Drivetrain

Ensuring that the transmission shifts smoothly and the drivetrain is free of issues.

Brakes and Suspension

Verifying that brakes are functioning properly and the suspension system is in good shape.

Electrical Systems

Testing the battery, lights, and all electronic devices to ensure everything is operational.

Exterior and Interior Condition

Assessing the body for damage and the interior for wear and tear.
