3 Reasons to Get a Pre-Purchase Car Check
If you’re thinking you have nothing to worry about because you’re buying the second-hand car from a legitimate used auto dealer, or from an independent seller that has shown you a roadworthy certificate, you would be wrong?
On the contrary, a pre-purchase car check is an important step to take when buying any used car—regardless of who the seller is or how few kilometres are on the vehicle. Here are 3 particularly strong reasons to schedule in a pre-buy car inspection with Nambour Car Service the moment you start thinking about purchasing a specific used make and model.
- Roadworthy Certificates can be unreliable: It’s a sad-but-true fact that there is a good deal of dishonesty which goes on in the used car industry. Denis and Jasmine have owned and operated Nambour Car Service since 2003, and over the years, they’ve seen that there are still many workshops and businesses throughout Queensland which will sign roadworthy certificates for distinctly un-roadworthy cars. Bottom line, even if a car does have a certificate, it’s still a good idea to get a pre-purchase vehicle inspection carried out to make sure it’s truly in full safe and functioning order.
- A second opinion is always valuable: Even if the used car dealer tells you the car in question has already gone through a car inspection, and even if you know the roadworthy certificate came from a reputable workshop, a second opinion is always worthwhile. Roadworthy inspections aren’t comprehensive, and dealer inspections can be biased. The mechanics at Nambour Car Service, provide comprehensive pre-purchase inspections that look at every aspect of your prospective vehicle in a fully unbiased light.
- A pre-purchase used car inspection could save you money and headaches in the long run: Second-hand cars can look great, but they may have years of deferred maintenance under the hood. In some cases, a car may have been in an accident and repaired improperly. These are just two examples of issues that may not become apparent during a test drive, but will eventually cause problems further down the road. When you buy a damaged or poorly maintained car, you are also buying responsibility for all of its flaws and issues. You owe it to yourself to find out just how much those flaws and issues could end up costing you in the months or years to come.
