Why have a Comprehensive 4WD Mechanical Inspection?

Buying a second hand 4WD can be overwhelming. Normal wear & tear, poor service history, driver abuse, emission system failures or unforeseen deterioration of internal components can all affect the longevity and running costs of a vehicle.

Pre-Purchase 4WD Vehicle Inspections

With almost twice as many mechanical components compared to a 2WD, the chance of having mechanical problems is a lot greater. If you are planning a purchase or an extended trip, then let our experienced Technicians perform a Comprehensive Pre-Purchase or Pre-Trip Inspection to alleviate your stress and worry.
