What Is Pre-Purchase Inspection?
At Dr. Roadworthy, a pre-purchase inspection is performed by licensed mechanics who are qualified auto technicians. They give the vehicle a thorough look-over and carefully inspect the mechanical and safety prospects of the car. Through a proper pre-purchase inspection the mechanic can bring into light any current conditions or potential issues that could appear in the future.
Why Is Pre-Purchase Inspection Important?
A pre-purchase inspection is essentially a report clarifying the condition of the vehicle. When someone finds a car that they really like, it might be tempting to jump to the conclusion that it is “the one”. But rushing through the process of buying to get into the driver’s seat as soon as possible is not a very good decision while buying any kind of vehicle.
