Mobile Vehicle Inspections (FAQ)

Have questions about our mobile vehicle inspections? Our FAQ page provides clear answers and helps you make the most informed decision about your vehicle purchase.

A mobile vehicle inspection is a thorough assessment of a used vehicle by a qualified inspector, performed at your chosen location. This offers convenience, saves time, and eliminates the need to travel to a garage or dealership.

A mobile vehicle inspection gives you peace of mind by:

  • Uncovering potential mechanical or structural problems you may not notice.
  • Identifying signs of concealed accident damage or shoddy repairs.
  • Providing leverage for negotiating a fair price.
  • Helping you avoid costly surprises after purchase.

We conduct a comprehensive inspection, including:

  • Exterior: Body condition, paintwork, rust, panel gaps, lights and glass.
  • Interior: Seats, upholstery, dashboard, electronics functionality wear and tear.
  • Engine: Fluid levels, leaks, belts, hoses, unusual noises, engine maintaince, ecu issues and more.
  • Undercarriage: Suspension, exhaust, frame integrity and signs of damage.
  • Tires & Brakes: Tread depth, brake pad wear or uneven wear patterns.
  • Safety Features: Seatbelts, airbags (visual check) and  warning lights.

Our inspections are detailed and extensive and can not be completely covered within our FAQ. Please refer to our packages to see the extent of our mobile vehicle inspection services.

Most inspections take between 30-90 minutes. More complex inspections or those involving multiple vehicles may take longer.

You are welcome to be present for the entire inspection to ask questions and observe. However, if you’re short on time, you can provide access to the vehicle and our inspector will handle the rest.

Our detailed report will highlight any major concerns or potential problems. This empowers you to:

  • Renegotiate the price based on necessary repairs
  • Walk away from the purchase if the issues are too severe
  • Plan for future maintenance and budgeting
While our inspections are thorough, it’s important to understand that they are primarily visual. We cannot guarantee the future performance of the vehicle or detect problems that are completely hidden. Our goal is to give you the most comprehensive information possible to make an informed decision.

Our skilled inspectors look for tell-tale signs of previous accidents, such as mismatched paint, uneven panel gaps, overspray or signs of frame repair. However, some expertly repaired damage can be difficult to detect without specialised equipment.
