Advice from our expert mechanics

We have a team of experienced and highly skilled professionals who will come to the vehicle’s location, conduct a thorough inspection and give you honest and candid feedback about the used car. Their feedback will be crucial, as having an unbiased professional tell you what is wrong with the vehicle will allow you to make better decisions about spending your money wisely. Having a professional weigh-in in these situations sure does help.

What kind of inspection should I get done?

Our team will come to the location at your convenience and conduct a comprehensive 50-point inspection. This type of inspection is also commonly referred to as PPI (Pre Purchase Inspection). The standard procedure before starting the PPI is to acquire the History report of the vehicle so that you are aware of the damage history, which is essential in determining the vehicle’s life.

 

The inspection involved everything from checking for any physical damage to checking the engine, mechanical systems, and other metal components that often get rusted quickly. Assessment of the brakes, suspension and steering wheel is also done, and the mechanic also takes the vehicle on a test drive to learn more about the car.

When and why should I get my vehicle inspected?

You should get your vehicle inspected at least twice a year for preventive measures. However, if you are looking at buying a previously owned car, then getting one done before you finalize the deal is the way to go. This way, you will know before you make the heavy payment for the car whether it is worth your money or not.

  • Set your budget: what’s the maximum your budget can allow you to shell out for a car? Always go lower than your budget because you will also factor in the servicing and initial expenditure. 
  • Do your research: Find a mechanic near you, make sure that your papers are in place, look up everything there is to know about the vehicle you have your eyes on and check the vehicle’s history.
  • See your financing options: If you can afford the vehicle all by yourself, good on you! If not, you can check the many automobile insurance choices out there. Find the one that is best suited for your needs, and you’re good to go!
  • Do a test drive: How does it feel when you drive the car? Are you comfortable driving this car? Does your body adapt to the interiors?
  • Compare prices: Always have a bunch of options before you select one. You never know; you might find a seller selling the same model for a much cheaper!
