Basic Inspection

Our basic inspection will give you a good overview of any major faults found on the vehicle with a thorough mechanical and structural check. Our vehicle inspectors, who are qualified engineers, will travel to a location of your choice to conduct a 218 point check on the vehicle and then a report of their findings will be emailed to you.
