Why hire a car inspection service through Airtasker?

Car inspection services are a dime a dozen with numerous garages near you being able to handle the most minor of requests. However, a simple inspection can be quite expensive and may not suit the specific type you need—leading to even more costs in the end. More than that, you’ll still need to drive your car to an auto mechanic shop, which can be a danger if you aren’t registered or sure of your car’s condition.

Instead of bogging yourself down by going to a garage, why not have an expert mechanic go to you? Through Airtasker's excellent platform, we will pair you with an experienced car mechanic to have your vehicle's condition inspected properly no matter the nature of service you need.

Best of all, you get to set the price range best suited for your budget, allowing our taskers to see your request, make bids for the task, and giving you the ultimate choice of picking the best person suited for your requirements. All it takes is just one post, and we'll handle the rest from there!

Top Car Inspection related questions

Depending on your needs, an average car inspection run-through could take anywhere between 15 - 30 minutes. However, more thorough maintenance and road checks can last up to two or three hours, so make sure you know the need before proceeding.

A quick inspection may reveal several deficiencies in your car's coolant, engine oil, and brake fluid levels. It can also help detect any issues with your lights, brake pads, and even tyres. More significant problems may arise during the procedure, especially if it has something to do with dead batteries, transmission malfunctions, or alternator failure.

For maintenance and repair inspections, the recommended routine is to have it done every six months or at least once a year. For any emergency situations, however, these should be handled as soon as possible to avoid any issues while driving.

The rule of thumb regarding car inspection services is to simply look for the nearest available garage, especially when you need it for an emergency. Building a relationship with your local mechanic is also a good practice—as small garages offer the best prices for regular maintenance services. 

For the easiest time, your best option is to source this task through Airtasker! With our help, you won’t just get to set a fair car inspection cost, but you can also choose among some of the best professionals who will go the extra mile to give you quality and convenient service.

Suggested reads about Car Inspection

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.
