Top Pre Purchase Car Inspection related questions

What does a pre purchase car inspection include?

A pre purchase car inspection usually includes a visual inspection and a short test drive. An experienced mechanic will look at the inside, outside, and underbody of the car to identify any current problems or future concerns. From steering and suspension through to indicators and lights, an inspection can help you get on the road sooner.

What are the benefits of getting a used car inspected?

Used cars don’t come with a warranty or money back guarantee, so it’s important to know exactly what you’re getting for your money. A pre purchase car inspection will give you peace of mind that you’re not buying a lemon. It may also help you to negotiate a better price if issues are found.

What are some common issues found in used cars?

Issues in used cars aren’t always obvious to car buyers. They could include mechanical or engine problems, issues with past repairs, and maintenance concerns. Problems with the gear box, clutch, and brakes could mean costly repairs down the track.

How long does pre purchase inspection take?

An inspection can take anywhere from 1-2 hours. Inspections are usually arranged quickly due to the short turnaround times of a car purchase. By arranging a mobile pre purchase car inspection, you can have the car inspected at a car dealership or the seller’s home.

Who should pay for your pre purchase car inspection service?

If you’re buying a used vehicle, it’s up to you to pay for the inspection so you can get an impartial opinion on the car’s condition. Choose a trusted mechanic for your pre purchase car inspection so you know you’re getting the right information.

How much does a pre purchase car inspection cost?

The average cost of a pre purchase car inspection is $75-$140 when you book through Airtasker. The price may vary depending on how urgently you need the inspection, the car’s make and model, the age of the vehicle, and where it’s located.

Do I need a specialist licence for pre purchase car inspection?

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

Car Inspection Services

What does a pre purchase car inspection include?

Cars are usually sold with a roadworthy certificate, but this only means your car is safe to drive on public roads. A pre purchase car inspection is the only way to make sure there are no surprises when you drive away. A qualified mechanic will do a visual inspection, mechanical check, and test drive to spot any current or potential problems. They will also be aware of concerns that might be typical for the make or model of the car you’re buying and look specifically for those issues. Your mechanic will usually follow a comprehensive pre purchase car inspection checklist to help you make an informed decision about buying the car. Some of these checks will include:

Exterior inspection

The outside of a car is good indication of how well the car has been looked after. Panel damage or evidence of repaired damage could indicate the car has been in serious accident. A pre purchase car inspection will show whether repairs have been performed to a satisfactory standard. An exterior check also includes checks for rust and structural integrity as these issues may cause problems down the track.

Interior inspection

Your mechanic will conduct a visual inspection of the car’s interior, starting with seats and door trims. Then they’ll check all features inside the car operate normally, including lights, seats, seat belts, air conditioning, central locking, wipers, and windows. Next they’ll check the dashboard instruments and gauges.

Mechanical inspection

Hidden mechanical problems are one of the pitfalls of buying a used car. And there’s no way of finding out the full extent of any car problems without pulling the engine apart. But an experienced mechanic can identify issues from just a visual check of the underbody and engine. Serious mechanical problems may also show themselves in other areas of the car. Brakes, suspension, wheels, tyres, gearbox, and steering will be checked, and a test drive will help to identify any additional concerns. Your mechanic will pay attention to electrical and cooling systems, as well as the alternator and battery. They will run a diagnostic scan to identify any other issues.

History check

You can make sure your new purchase isn’t hiding any secrets, and that it’s not at risk of repossession by including a history check as part of your pre purchase car inspection. A history check (or REVS check) show any finance owing on the vehicle, if the car has been stolen, or whether it’s been in a major accident and written off. These records are kept and attached to your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN).
