Used Car Inspections Kent WAFinding a garage that does used car inspections in Kent WA isn’t difficult, but you do want to make sure you go to a trusted repair shop with an experienced staff. You have options for a pre purchase inspection, including having one done by a mobile inspector who will come to the site of the vehicle to look it over. However, for the best inspection, you’ll want to come into a professional shop because we can use our equipment to perform a variety of checks that you just can’t replicate off-site. These checks include a computerized engine analysis, as well as part inspections using our equipment, which can spot things that our eyes can’t.

Pre Purchase Inspections You Can Trust

Why should you always be sure to get used car inspections from your favorite Kent auto repair shop? That’s easy: it’s the best way to be sure you’re not getting a lemon. It may be tempting to skip an inspection and buy a car based off a cursory look and quick test drive, but that’s a mistake. You simply can’t get the full picture of a car’s performance based off of a short drive, and if you’re purchasing a car online, there’s even more opportunity for misrepresentation on the part of the seller. Even a seller who doesn’t intend to deceive you may fudge a few facts, like a strange smell in the car or minor damage that could turn into major repairs later. A pre purchase inspection inspects the entire car, including:

  • Tires
  • Frame
  • Glass
  • Brakes
  • Engine
  • Fluids
  • Battery
  • And even more

A professional will be able to tell you if the car’s been in an accident, if its suffered damage from a natural disaster, or if it has parts that will need replacing in the near future. Having this knowledge at your back will help you make a smart purchasing decision or negotiate a better price for the car.
