pre-purchase inspection

Purchasing a car is a big investment, second next to purchasing a home. When you are in the market for a used vehicle you want to make sure that you get a thorough inspection of the vehicle prior to purchasing. The best way to do this is by taking it to a quality independent mechanic – someone who knows the vehicle inside and out and can tell you the condition the vehicle is in. Most private sellers and used dealerships may know little or next to nothing about the car they are selling. Call today to get a fair and unbiased assessment before you make a used vehicle purchase.

At PKW Motorwerks, we do a full 360 inspection of the car. We will thoroughly examine the mechanical, electrical and safety aspects of the vehicle. This includes reviewing the shape of the tires & brakes, inspecting under the hood for any leaks, checking for any potential flood or fire damage, inspecting the suspension and transmission plus much much more. We then present you with the issues we find and give you an overall idea of the current condition of the vehicle. This gives you an idea of what will need to be fixed immediately and any future issues that may arise. You can then take the information from your pre-purchase inspection back to the seller and request a price savings for any future work you will need to have done or move on to another vehicle. The process takes roughly a couple hours and can usually be done without an appointment – dependent upon availability.
