San Diego Pre-Purchase Car Inspections

A pre-purchase car inspection aims to help our customers make the correct decision when it comes to buying a used vehicle. This can be a daunting experience if the purchaser doesn’t know what to look for in a used vehicle, and although they might look nice, this doesn’t mean they are a good purchase.

The mobile mechanics we schedule in, to make these used vehicle inspections are the very best in the industry. They run through their own set of tests to find out if there any problems with the vehicle, or if there could possibly be anything which will cause a problem once the car has been purchased.

Our mechanics will cover the following as part of their used vehicle purchase inspection.

 

  • Verify all the listed equipment is included in the vehicle for sale
  • These checks will verify the vehicle is in the described condition
  • Frame and chassis checks will be conducted along with engine and body to make sure they are all above board. An estimate will be provided if there is remedial work to be carried out.
  • Body and engine codes are checked for signs of tampering
  • You can have an increase in bargaining power if there is work to be carried out, or the car inspection shows the vehicle is over-valued.

 

As many people decide to have a pre-purchase vehicle inspection, there are still a vast number of people who choose not to proceed with one. This can be for a few reasons such as the ones listed here.

  2. Many individuals just don’t have the budget or are unwilling to spend that little extra for an additional inspection

Any seller who denies access to a used vehicle inspection is in most cases hiding something. There are many tricks they use to show the vehicle in the best light. In many cases, a skilled mechanic can learn so much from a quick test-drive, so it is easy to see why some vehicle owners don’t want them near their vehicle.

Cars are often in accidents which never go reported to the insurance, these are made to look good, but when they are driven by an expert, little signs will show up.
