Pre Purchase Inspections
Why get stuck with a lemon when we can check it for you?
Buying a second hand car can come with it's fair share of anxieties. Is it actually in good condition? Are there any problems? Does it have a major service coming up? Why are they really selling? And all of the other questions you have when looking at buying a used car.
We help alleviate those big questions and provide you with much more than just an inspection - we provide you with answers, a report and bargaining power.

Log Book Check
We check any logbookgs present for service history and check for any major service items that may be required such as timing belts, in-tank fuel filters, differential or transfer case services, etc, which you may have not been repaired for with a price guide on what they could cost.
We provide a report with information on the vehicle, list any issues and provide logbook information on any major service items which are due.
