A personal note from CMM Automotive Mechanics owner Grant
In the early days, we noticed that an abnormal amount of new customers were coming from people who had just bought a new vehicle from either someone they trusted or from a stranger they had never met. What surprised us as mechanics was that these people were shocked that they had been ripped off. People usually only sell a car when they are not happy with it for one reason or another eg financial, or they know it’s got serious problems which they themselves don’t want to pay for. This also includes people who know for a fact that what they did to it way back ‘will definitely be costing them something in the future”!!
In Carine, we provide fully comprehensive and unbiased vehicle inspections.
Our inspections include:
Complete engine check
Full electrical check
Fuel and ignition system check
Visual inspection of brakes, tyres, wheels
Steering and suspension
Transmission testing and check
Body condition inspection
Air-conditioning testing and check
Full interior checks, including rust
Road test of the vehicle
Full customer report and professional recommendation (our report is provided to you and only to you) we can provide a copy to the other party upon your approval.
How long does it take?
Please allow 1-2 hours for a proper formal inspection
How much does a vehicle inspection cost?
It costs approximately $265 for us to come to the car and perform a detailed inspection. We think it’s a small investment for long term peace of mind in Carine.
One of the most important parts of our inspections that puts us a step ahead of all the other mechanics is we will provide you with a list of replacements that will come up in near future services. For instance the timing belt might need replacing in 10000 kms time which will cost you 2000 in 6 months. If you have found your vehicle over the internet, send us a link to the advert and we will make sure you are purchasing the vehicle you believe you are looking to purchase. For instance the year, make, model and VIN number. It is amazing how often people try adding a year or two on the model of their vehicle, especially when aesthetically they look quite similar from the outside.
