Pre-Purchase Car Inspection by Expert Mechanics

Pre-Purchase Car Inspection by Expert Mechanics

Updated on April 19 2024

Most modern cars are built to last and can easily go several years without needing anything more than routine maintenance–but it's always a good idea to professionally inspect any used car for peace of mind.

Aside from shady paperwork and unknown origins, the biggest concern when approaching a used or repossessed car is its mechanical state of health. The odometer does not tell all, sometimes a high-mileage car may actually be in better shape than a less traveled one. Hence the need for a proper pre-purchase inspection.

Issues with the exterior (paint, body damage) and interior (seats, upholstery) are easy enough to spot. It's when it comes to inspecting the engine, suspension, brakes, and other vital components that a potential buyer may need assistance. Common advice you may have heard is to bring a trusted mechanic when doing the pre-purchase inspection of a used car. Rarely does anyone tell you how to actually find one though.

We charge a minimal fee of P700 per hour for an expert inspection with an accompanying mechanic. This is usually long enough for three car inspections in one location.
