What do car inspection services include?

Car inspection services range from general check-ups of a vehicle’s status and performance to more specific assessments of its history and licensing. This is usually done regularly, either for maintenance inspections or assessing the car’s condition before putting it in the market or transferring its ownership. Here are some services that you can expect when you book a car inspection through Airtasker:

Pre-Purchase Car Inspection

Prior to buying or selling a used vehicle, one of the most important tasks to accomplish is a pre-purchase car inspection. Aside from giving you a basic rundown of what needs repairing, it can also supply you with the information necessary to attach a reasonable price tag for the vehicle being checked. Car warranty inspections are often a part of this process and can also be valuable input for a buyer to take note of before they make their final decision.


Pink Slip Inspection

Vehicles more than five years old are the usual target for #pink slip inspections or E-Safety checks. When registering your car, your renewal papers might indicate the need for this. Upon doing so, an inspector can verify that your vehicle is road-worthy—allowing you to register your car for the year accordingly.

Blue Slip Inspection
Blue slip inspections check the roadworthiness of unregistered vehicles that fall under the following scenarios:


  • Autos that haven’t been inspected for the past three months
  • Vehicles with no number plates
  • Automobiles that have undergone significant adjustments in registration records
  • Cars that have been imported from overseas


This process ensures that your car will be ready to get back on the road once the registration has pulled through.


Car Interior and Exterior Inspection

Any dent, scratch, or damage can make or break a car's overall appearance, which is why it's imperative to get a thorough interior and exterior inspection. Hire an expert to check every nook and cranny of a vehicle—from its exterior paint, headlights, and tyres to the dashboard and upholstery. Should any issue arise during the procedure, you can also book a professional #car detailing specialist to give an automobile that showroom quality it deserves.

Engine Inspection

An engine inspection or a car diagnostics test can spot all sorts of car problems even before they occur, sparing you and your vehicle from further damage and more costly repairs in the future. An expert mechanic will check all the essential car parts like the brakes, alternator, cooling systems, gaskets, battery, and suspension, among others. Electrical wirings will also be inspected to ensure that every connection is in its proper order.

Hi there This is me Deepak. I really need your assistance in buying a car from market place. Previously, I bought 2 cars from Facebook market and I got robbed as both of those car had serious engine problems and couldn’t last for 6 months. I already lost huge money on it. This time, I want to make sure I get the car that is in good condition mechanically. Recently, I am interested in one car in Facebook marketplace which is Toyota Aurion 2010 auto and had 260ks on clock. The owner wants $6500 for it which is little fair in respect to current market price for that car. However, I want to have pre inspection of it and if it passes all those requirements I will definitely buy it. So I need your assistance on it as I don’t have good knowledge on cars. Can you provide me your service details and fee ? Also the available time period so I can arrange this inspection. Thanks
