The Benefits of Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections

If you’re looking to buy a new car, it’s always a good idea to have a pre-purchase vehicle inspection with a professional mechanic. Our team at Carcare Joondalup will be able to identify any issues that you may not be able to spot and/or any issues with the car which may not be noticeable at first.

We will take the car for a road test and check things such as:

  • body
  • mechanics
  • interior
  • warranty
  • history

As we all know, sometimes when we buy cars from individuals, they will do short-term fixes so that the car drives smoothly during a test drive and so that they can sell the car. Major issues may arise after a couple weeks of driving, which can turn into expensive repairs. Nobody wants to experience that.

What to Ask the Seller

It’s a good idea to have some of your own questions in mind to ask the seller when purchasing a used car from someone. For example:

  • Why are you selling the car? Putting the seller on the spot can be a good way to recognise any deception on the part of the seller and will keep you mindful of any potential problems.
  • Who was the previous owner? Knowing who has owned the car can be just as informative as a full service history.
  • Can I see the maintenance history? You might not be able to see everything about the car by looking at the surface, but a maintenance history can help you learn a lot about the car.

Getting a good deal is important, which is why our professionals are here to help you. To book a pre-purchase vehicle inspection, simply fill out our online booking form, or contact us today on (08) 6500 1708.
