About Pre-purchase Inspection

A pre-purchase inspection is an independent, third-party professional service that evaluates a vehicle’s condition before the purchase. The service results in factual information that the prospective buyer uses as decision support for the vehicle purchase. 

We provide Pre-purchase Inspections for

- Light vehicles up to and including 4.5t GVM
- Light trailers up to and including 4.5t ATM
- Heavy trailer up to and including 10t ATM
- Heavy vehicles up to and including 16t GVM

All Pre-purchase Inspections will include checks for

  • Body | only visual check on panels and paint report on the general condition, check for signs of repair
  • Interior | interior trim including seats, restraints, window and door mechanisms

Our onsite Pre-purchase Inspections are carried out by our fully qualified mechanics. In order for your vehicle to qualify for our Pre-purchase Inspection services it must meet the following criteria

- The vehicle must have been manufactured after the 1st of January 1989
- The vehicle must not be privately imported or an imported version of a domestically sold item
- The vehicle must be Australian delivered and/or manufactured for domestic sales in Australia

PLEASE NOTE | These inspections are visual, audible and external ONLY! We do not reserve the right to remove or detach any component of the inspected vehicle (ie. no compression test is carried out; brakes, wheels, carpets, seats, etc. will not be removed or disassembled). 

After the Pre-purchase Inspection

A written copy of the report will be provided along with a comprehensive PPSR (Personal Property Securities Register) report. The PPSR report will provide you with current information such as any reported, stolen, write-off and security (or insurance interest) state of the vehicle.
