Car Mechanics and Vehicle pre-purchase Inspections

Every year thousands of motorists buy a used car they think is safe, only to find out later about costly, dangerous faults, or hidden crash damage. You can now arrange for a professional inspection for less than £100 with just a few clicks

Car history checks are essential when buying a used car, but savvy buyers are increasingly opting for mechanical inspections by a professional, especially when buying privately, to give total peace of mind about your safety - these are known as ‘Pre-purchase inspections’. Although no mechanic can ever guarantee that a vehicle has no faults, arranging for a professional to attend a car before you commit your hard earned cash is a wise move. There are countless stories of buyers narrowly avoiding buying cars with potential repair bills running into the £thousands.
