Pre Purchase Inspections UK testimonials 

Pre Purchase Inspection UK was on time, carried out a thorough pre purchase inspection and called me soon after explaining potential issues. Very helpful, friendly and informative. Highly recommended!

Aarone - London, UK

Pre Purchase Inspections UK were brilliant. They carried out an extensive check on a van I was looking at potentially buying and took tonnes of photos. They put together a comprehensive report and phoned me after to go through it- the engineer even stayed on the phone while uploading photos so we could chat through each one individually to ensure I had a good understanding of the issues that were found. He was super friendly, personable, chatty and was great to talk to on the phone and gave great advice. I can't recommend Pre Purchase Inspections UK enough for anyone looking for knowledgeable and friendly mechanics.

Marcus - London, UK

Pre Purchase Inspection UK sent me a full report on a car I am thinking of buying. They picked out a number of faults that a test drive and a (non car person) like me would have definitely missed. They were very friendly when he called and let me ask any questions and answered clearly and honestly. They also said he was happy to call again should I need to go over anything again. Very pleased with the outcome. Pre Purchase Inspections UK are highly recommended. Thanks

Sarah - Essex, UK

Pre Purchase Inspections Uk were great friendly and knowledgeable. The photos and report were very detailed and helped me decide that the car wasn’t going to work for me. I would 100% recommend this service to anyone buying a used car.

Andreea - Hertfordshire, UK

Pre Purchase Inspections UK was very informative and helpful in their review. In addition to highlighting various issues they explained their significance which enabled me to make an informed choice about whether to purchase or not.

Paul - London, UK

Very knowledgable, specialist in Mercedes, which the car Pre Purchase Inspections UK were looking at was as well. They seemed to know the "inner workings" (as in, what's usually wrong with these cars) very well.

James - London, UK

Pre Purchase Inspections UK were excellent.
We live in East Yorkshire and the car was in Maidstone so I didn't want to have to drive to Kent to see a car which I might end up not buying. Pre Purchase Inspections UK reports are very thorough-- even the paintwork thickness was measured to highlight any areas which had been resprayed! Much better inspection check than we would have done ourselves and it enabled me to make an informed decision about buying the car.
Prompt follow up phone call where all the issues highlighted were discussed. Emailed report also received quickly.
The mechanic was very friendly and knowledgeable- I even phoned him again after the initial phone call to double check something and he didn't mind at all.
Excellent service, would highly recommend
Thanks again.

What is a Pre-Purchase Inspection?


A Pre Purchase Inspection is an Independent report carried out by a Professional as a third party. This report is then used by the client to gain an understanding of what condition the vehicle is in prior to making a purchase offer.

  Benefits of having an Inspection done prior to purchase?

There are many benefits as to why you should have a pre purchase inspection prior to purchase of a used vehicle, benefits including gaining a sharper and clearer understanding of a vehicle's condition we know buying a used vehicle can be a stressful and daunting task, especially when you may not be confident in a particular vehicle or seller. That's where Pre Purchase Inspections UK comes in! Using our innovative and advanced technology not only do we interrogate the vehicle's electronics with our non-intrusive diagnostics machines but Pre Purchase Inspections UK also have non-destructive coating thickness machines, using electromagnetic induction Pre Purchase Inspections UK can determine how much paint has been applied to a vehicle's paneling and compare these to the manufactures specifications!
