Do I Need a Pre-Purchase Inspection When Buying a Used Car?

Buying a used car is a great way to get a quality vehicle without spending too much money. If you've been saving for a used car and have finally found the one, you want to be sure that the vehicle is in good condition or at least in the condition that the seller has claimed. Too often we have seen buyers commit to a used vehicle only to have the car breakdown within the first week of driving it. It is hard to see the vehicle's condition from the outside, which is why pre-purchase inspections are so important. 

What is a pre-purchase used vehicle inspection? 

A pre-purchase inspection is when you bring a used vehicle that you are considering purchasing into our shop for an evaluation. We take a look at the car to determine its health and any repairs that it needs so that you can make an educated decision about buying the car and if the price fits the condition. 

Where can I get a pre-purchase vehicle inspection? 

You can get a pre-purchase inspection performed right here at Eurotech Auto Service. 

What will the results be of a pre-purchase vehicle inspection?

Once we complete our pre-purchase inspection, we will give you a report of our findings. This will include an overall evaluation of the condition and any services or repairs that we found the vehicle will need in the near future. We also give you an idea of what these services or repairs will cost so that you can understand the financial burden that you will have after you purchase the vehicle. 

What if the seller refuses to let me get the vehicle inspected before committing to the purchase? 

If the seller refuses to let you have the vehicle inspected before purchasing, this is a red flag. This is an indication to us that the buyer is trying to dupe you and that they in fact know something about the car that you don't. We recommend forgetting the car in this instance and finding a more honest seller.
