What is a Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection?
A pre-purchase vehicle inspection is a detailed and thorough inspection to ensure that a vehicle is in a good mechanical condition, safe and roadworthy and is carried out by a mechanic and an automotive engineer assessor that is qualified and experienced, offering invaluable feedback.
The engineer will inspect the exterior of a vehicle for signs of major or minor body repair. The engineer will then check the interior of a vehicle to ensure that all the instruments and controls are working correctly.
