Safety and Pre-Purchase Inspections

We do safety and pre-purchase inspections.

If you recently purchased a car, you're trying to sell your car, or you aren't sure about an area of the vehicle, we can offer a safety inspection to make sure it's ready to go. If something is unsafe, we will recommend the proper repairs and schedule the work as soon as possible. If you want to know exactly what you're getting before you purchase your next car. This will make you aware of any potential repairs that may occur in the near future, current conditions that must be repaired, and uncover any safety issues. This will help you decide if the vehicle is right for you.
