Pre-Purchase Inspections

Vehicle/Car Pre-Purchase Inspections

At JB Mobile Mechanics, we understand that purchasing a second-hand car can be a daunting experience. That’s why we offer comprehensive vehicle pre-inspections to give you peace of mind and ensure you make a well-informed decision. Our team of experienced technicians carry out a thorough examination of the vehicle, from top to bottom, to identify any potential issues or problems.

During a pre-inspection, we check the vehicle’s exterior for any signs of damage, rust or corrosion. We then move on to the interior, checking for wear and tear, functional electrical components, and the overall condition of the upholstery and dashboard. Under the hood, we inspect the engine, transmission, belts, and hoses, as well as all other mechanical components.

We also perform a road test to assess the vehicle’s performance, including acceleration, braking, and handling. In addition to that, we carry out a computerised scan to check for any error codes or warning lights that may indicate potential issues.

At the end of the pre-inspection, you’ll receive a detailed report that outlines the condition of the vehicle and highlights any potential problems. With this information, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about whether to proceed with the purchase or not.
