Why do I need a vehicle inspection?

Generally, we book inspections if we’re not sure if there is something not working with our car, or, we know there is something wrong, but we just can’t figure it out!

We all just want to get to the bottom of the issue straight away so we can move on with our lives, but when it comes to cars, it could either become a costly repair or put yourself and other motorists at risk if you do not address the issue straight away.

Because there are so many variables when it comes to repairing a vehicle, an inspection allows the mechanic to accurately diagnose the problem so the correct repair can be carried out.
