Pre purchase car inspection

A pre purchase car inspection is an essential step before you commit to buy. It can be difficult to know what to look for when inspecting a vehicle, which is why our inspector can do it for you so you do not have to worry that you are purchasing a lemon. Our inspector has had over 35 years of experience in the motor repair history, and being a mechanic knows exactly what to look for.

At AutoChex, we provide on-site personal inspections for vehicles, assisting you in making a decision before you buy. We operate in the Sydney and Wollongong areas, with new serviced areas coming soon. Our mobile pre purchase car inspection service comes to you. This level of convenience makes it easy for you to organise an inspection time between us and the seller. We inspect all car makes and models, with a wealth of experience in identifying mechanical issues.

You can save a lot of money by buying a car second hand, but any such savings can be lost if you accidentally buy a car with serious issues. Any used car will come with quirks and minor problems, but the key when buying one is to tolerate minor or inconsequential problems, while paying attention to anything which will need a costly fix. A pre purchase vehicle inspection minimises this risk of buying a vehicle which will cause you headaches. For a few hundred dollars, our inspector will conduct a complete mechanical inspection of the car, keeping an eye out for common issues. We can do a basic inspection, or can do a comprehensive inspection including test drive. Our goal is to equip you with the complete knowledge of the car you are buying – including the parts that the seller will not tell you. The pre purchase car inspection is an investment to ensure you do not get caught short. Our inspector will always tell you the facts – even facts you may not want to hear if you have your heart set on a particular car.

Before you make a car purchase, you need to be armed with all the information you can. You would not want to buy a car only to find that it needs costly repairs. Even knowing of minor issues can be a great advantage for your negotiating position. The best case scenario is that the car we inspect for you has minimal issues, so you can go ahead with the purchase with the peace of mind that you are getting a reliable vehicle.

A pre purchase inspection is an entirely different matter to the vehicle’s roadworthy check and certificate. Both serve different purposes. A car can be roadworthy without being a reliable vehicle, so do not let the roadworthy certificate trick you into a false sense of security. When we conduct a pre purchase car inspection, we keep in mind common issues for that type of car, and can immediately spot issues which would give you pause before committing to buy.
