A pre-purchase inspection is a step you should never skip in the car-buying process. When browsing the used vehicle market, you can never be too sure what you are getting into. To restore your confidence, the team at Accomplished Auto can thoroughly inspect the car to make sure it is what the seller claims it is. A pre-purchase inspection or PPI will check for both mechanical and cosmetic defects.
A pre-purchase inspection can take the pain of buying a lemon away. Here are the 4 advantages of getting a PPI:
1) Determine the vehicle’s worth
A PPI is a very detailed inspection that pretty much covers the vehicle, bumper-to-bumper. Most importantly, our techs will closely look at the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, steering system, and more to let you know how much the vehicle is really worth. Does it match the selling price, or are you getting ripped off?
2) Verify the condition of the parts
When buying from a private seller, it is hard to know the true condition of the vehicle and its parts. No one understands vehicles better than those who work with them every day. We can give you an idea of how the parts are looking and whether they work.
3) Identify any faulty, missing, or non-authentic parts
Having faulty or non-OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts can bring down the overall value of the car. We can check the history of the car’s service and let you know which parts have been replaced. It will give you peace of mind knowing which parts are OEM.
4) Reveal any hidden problems with the vehicle
Before purchasing a car, you want to know what potential problems it may have now and in the near future. By conducting this in-depth inspection, we can let you know what kind of work the vehicle needs. Additionally, we can provide estimates of the services it needs so that you can negotiate with the seller.
