What does a pre-purchase inspection entail?
For your convenience, our mechanics go to the car owner’s location to inspect the car. The mechanic performs a standard 50-point inspection that includes a visual inspection of the fluids, body, brakes, cooling system, suspension, tyres, and overall external appearance. They do not put the car on a lift but may use floor jacks to raise up parts of the car as needed. The mechanic will also take photos of the exterior and interior.
The mechanic may scan the car’s various computers for trouble codes and test drive the vehicle if it’s safe, operational and the owner has been given permission. If the mechanic inspecting the car is not given permission to test drive the car or it is unsafe to test drive the car, the inspection will be completed without the test drive portion. Tools used in the pre-purchase inspections are those needed to check the fluids, brakes, tires, batteries, and other parts of the vehicle.
When are the mechanics available to inspect the car?
The mechanics are available 6 days a week from 7am to 7pm. You can book an appointment online anytime by selecting your location, car, and pre-purchase inspection job. The specific availability of the mechanics in your area will appear after you request a quote.
