Pre Purchase Vehicle Inspection

If you are considering investment into classic car ownership then please ensure you've taken all reasonable risk reductions before parting with your hard earned cash.  We offer a comprehensive vehicle inspection service that will give you a detailed report into the current condition of any vehicle prior to your purchase.  


We pride ourselves on providing information to further assist and advise you with the important decisions such as to purchase or not.  We can even negotiate the asking price on your behalf subject to our inspection.


All pre-purchase vehcle inspections are undertaken by Peter, business owner, who has 45 years experience in the Motor Trade.  A lot of the vehicles that we see now which are looked upon as Classics, were new when Peter first worked on them as a younger man.


Peace of mind when investing in a classic vehicle starts at just £200 for vehicles inspected at our Hertfordshire workshop.


Prices start at £250, plus a mileage charge, for inspections within 100 mile radius from our workshop.  Inspections further than 100 miles radius from the workshop are by quotation only, and may incur overnight accommodation charge.


All charges listed are subject to VAT at the current rate  


Our pre-purchase inspection will give you an appraisal of the bodywork & paintwork condition and an appraisal of mechanical components.  The Inspection will be carried out without any items being dismantled as this is an area that could cause conflict with a vendor.


The vehicle, if legal for the road, will be given a road test to check that engine, gearbox, steering and axle all operate as you would expect without undue noise. The appraisal is made taking into account the age and mileage of the vehicle.


We will provide you with an estimate as to the current market value of the vehicle, and  an estimate for repairs should the vehicle need renovation.


If you go ahead with any Vehicle purchase we can, depending on size, help with the collection, using a trailer or low loader, and deliver the vehicle to your home or chosen repairer or bodyshop if work is required to bring the car up to a better standard.


Because the Inspection is carried out without dismantling any components no guarantees or warranties will be implied or given.
