Vehicle Inspection

What is a vehicle inspection?

During a vehicle inspection, a qualified engineer comes to examine a vehicle in detail. They will also evaluate the vehicle to see if it is structurally sound. The engineer will also recommend if any work needs to be done on the vehicle so a potential buyer can decide whether or not it's worth buying. As long as you have the seller's consent, you can have a vehicle checked by a technician.

Why is a vehicle inspection important?

As with other vehicle inspection services, a vehicle inspection is not required by law. But it's something we highly recommend.
Sales people can avoid mentioning previous bugs and problems in the vehicle listing, so an inspection is a good way to uncover any problems that you might not spot yourself.
If you are in urgent need of a car or have found one that you are passionate about, you can review all the faults and make a bad decision. The independent and impartial engineer can provide clear and concise answers to any concerns. This is something you might not get from a private seller. An inspection gives you all the information you need to negotiate the best price for the vehicle. This also means that there are no unpleasant surprises after the purchase.

Kind Words From Our Customers

" I am a Real Estate Agent and my car is my lifeline in my business so it is absolutely essential that it is in a good state of repair at all times.
I have no idea what I would have done without German Auto over the last year or two.  They have been outstanding to say the very least. 
It first started with windscreen wipers that broke during a heavy rain storm and I phoned German Auto on a Friday afternoon after 5pm. 
They came to my house and fixed the problem immediately.  Recently flat… flat… battery on a Monday morning and of course a busy
Monday schedule to boot !  Well in no time at all, a brand new battery was brought to the house and car up and running once again. 
Once again on yet a Monday morning, there was a dreadful noise coming from the engine. The guys from German Auto asked me to bring the car in to
 the workshop where I was brilliantly assisted by Clement and Martin.  Fast and furious service done in the friendliest and most efficient manner. 
I cannot recommend them highly enough. "
