Pre-Owned Vehicle…
Inspection & Check-Up

If you are purchasing a Pre-Owned Vehicle? We highly recommend you have a pre-purchase inspection done. Whether you are buying your car privately or from a used car dealer, it's worth the time and the money having this Inspection done.

Because no matter how good it looks, there could be all sorts of expensive problems lurking in the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, or other areas of the vehicle. And you definitely don't want to discover them after you have already purchased the vehicle.

European vehicles a particular focus on European Vehicles such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Mini and Porsche, we highly recommend for all on board computers and controls modules analysis and check-up by SCANNER in order to verify any history faulty codes…

It really does pay "$$$" to have a Pre-purchase Inspection done before you buy a car, and it is your best protection before purchasing a vehicle.
