Buying a secondhand car can be a stressful experience. What are you really buying? Is the owner telling the truth about the condition of the car? Have they done anything to disguise the true faults? Why are they really selling?
Some people sell cars because they have underlying problems that are hard to find and fix.
The key to ensuring that you’re getting good value for money when buying a secondhand car is to get it checked by an independent expert. That way if there are any issues then you can decide whether to choose another car or negotiate a better price.
This is why we offer a comprehensive check of secondhand cars before you buy. You get an overview of the general condition of the car and you can then make an informed decision on what to do next.
*You can do a comprehensive vehicle inspection yourself but without a hoist and the right equipment, you’ll likely miss aspects that could make a difference to the longevity of your car and what costs you’ll be up for down the track. The best thing to do is to take it to a qualified independent mechanic.
