What does CARCLUB look for during a Pre Purchase Inspection?


One of CARCLUB’s qualified mechanics will thoroughly inspect the vehicle’s exterior, interior and underbody then perform a road test.

The exterior inspection includes paint work, rust, and panels. The interior inspection includes condition, seat belts and electronic functions.

The mechanic will perform a full electrical test. They will check everything from lights and battery, to heating/cooling and de-mister system.

The vehicle will be lifted so the mechanic can thoroughly inspect the underbody of the vehicle.  From there, they will be able to check the frame, exhaust, suspension and shock absorbers, and also the drive shafts, gearbox and CV joints.

The wheels of the vehicle will be checked, and your pre purchase inspection report will include tread measurements for each tyre.

A full engine checkover and report will be provided, along with a road test to check brakes and overall performance.

Once thoroughly inspected, the mechanic will prepare a detailed pre purchase inspection report for you, so you can rest assured knowing the condition of the car, before you buy it.
