What’s involved in a pre-purchase car inspection?

With everyone feeling the pinch and needing to save as much money as possible, a pre-purchase car inspection is a sensible strategy when you are buying a used car. This is the best way to feel confident that you are not wasting your money on a lemon that will cost you an arm and a leg to fix up, shortly after buying it.

At Premium Mechanical Services, we have a mobile vehicle inspection service in Brisbane that can meet you at the car’s location (dealerships and private addresses) and perform the vehicle inspection while you are present. This gives you the opportunity to discuss any of your concerns about the car and to have an expert’s opinion on the state of the vehicle.

What’s included in our pre-purchase vehicle inspection in Brisbane?

The Premium Mechanical pre-purchase car inspection gives you a comprehensive and detailed report of the car’s condition, along with a quote for any recommended repairs. This puts you in a very strong position if you decide to move forward and negotiate the price of the car.

Our assessment is completely unbiased and gives you a realistic idea of the car’s value and whether or not it is worth its asking price. We also perform pre-purchase mobile vehicle inspections in Brisbane for 4WDs, AWDs and SUVs.

Your vehicle inspection will include an assessment of the following:

  • Engine and engine codes.
  • All fluids, radiator, clutch, transmission and brakes.
  • Steering, suspension, dash instruments and stereo.
  • Electrics, exhaust, heating and A/C.
  • Drive shaft.
  • Seats, seat belts, airbags, rust and paintwork.
  • Wheels, tyres, wipers, and the interior.

We can give you a verbal report at the time of your mobile vehicle inspection in Brisbane, followed by a printable copy of the report, emailed to you within a day or two. You will know however, whether it is worth pursuing the purchase at the time of the inspection and you will have an estimate of any likely repair work that needs to be undertaken.
