Pre-purchase Inspections & Checks

Pre-purchase inspections and checks become imperative when you decide to buy a used vehicle. The reason is simple: it is not possible for you to know the true worth of a pre-owned car merely through test drives and visual inspections. So, before you finalize the deal, it is important to seek the services of reliable and experienced auto maintenance and repair center to get the pre-purchase inspection (PPI) and checks done for the used car you are planning to buy.

We, at B&C Auto Center in San Jose, have skilled car mechanics who are experienced in carrying out thorough pre-purchase inspection and checks for any used car, to assess in detail its mechanical, cosmetic, and safety aspects. In short, they will help you get an accurate picture of the condition of the pre-owned vehicle.

Since a pre-purchase inspection involves a detailed assessment of the cosmetic, mechanical, and safety condition of a vehicle before a purchase is made, it is advisable to get it done by a certified car mechanic or automotive maintenance and repair technician. After all, only an expert with necessary knowledge in the make and model of the car being inspected can help you know if there are any shortcomings in the car, which may entail heavy maintenance or repair costs in future. Our San Jose car mechanics and technicians are certified to carry out a thorough pre-purchase inspection of most makes and models.

Pre-purchase inspections becomes imperative in the following situations:

  • When you decide to buy a car without a warranty: Purchasing a car without a warranty means you are assuming all the risks in case of any major breakdown or mechanical failure. This risk can be minimized if you get an assurance from a certified car technician regarding the condition of the car.
  • When you decide to buy a pre-owned car located in another city: This long distance dealing can prove to be costly for you since you do not get a chance to see the car or test drive it before closing the transaction. In such a case, you can get a PPI done by a local auto repair shop with requisite expertise.
