VEHICLE
  INSPECTION
 

If you are purchasing a vehicle, we highly recommend you have a pre-purchase inspection done. Whether you are buying your car privately or from a used car dealer, it's worth the time and the money having this Inspection done. Because no matter how good it looks, there could be all sorts of expensive problems lurking in the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, or other areas of the vehicle. And you definitely don't want to discover them after you have already purchased the vehicle.

 

It really does pay to have a Pre-purchase Inspection done before you buy the car, and it is your best protection before purchasing a vehicle.

 

Our trained technicians perform a thorough bumper-to-bumper visual inspection of the entire vehicle. We search and document all mechanical, safety, structural, and cosmetic flaws that we can locate. The vehicle will also be road tested for overall drivability. When finished, a detailed report will give an explanation of the true condition of the vehicle and future work required. The following items/systems will be inspected for the actual condition and/or apparent integrity.
