We carry out a thorough bumper to bumper visual inspection of the vehicle and use our knowladge along with specialist diagnostic equipment to provide you an independent assessment of the vehicles condition.

While we can't guarantee that you will never have a problem with a vehicle we've inspected with our industry knowladge we know what to look for.

What we can do is minimise your risk and identify those faults existing at the time of the inspection.

Please note - an MVTS inspection will not identify all mechanical faults.

Our inspection does not replace the need for regular vehicle maintenance. Mechanical components do wear out and items can fail unexpectedly without prior warning e.g. Cam belt, headlights, water pump.

What our inspection doesn't cover:

Exterior we do pull off covers which may hide any defects

Interior we check the that interior componants are working but we cant check seat memory's etc work

Drive line  we do not dismantle mechanical components on a standard inspection therefore we are unable to check internal drive line components of things like the (transmissions, wheel bearings diffs etc...) for levels of wear or damage.

Engine to really inspect and provide a comprehensive assessment of all of the internal engine components (pistons, crankshaft, and bearings) the complete engine would require dismantling...this is cost prohibitive.

Cooling system we do not remove the radiator for an internal inspection or remove radiator hoses and check internal components of the cooling system therefore some defects may be un able to be detected.

Suspension & steering we do not dismantle any of the vehicles suspension components which means that some internal faults may be undetected.

Brakes we focus on vehicle safety it is our highest priorty however during a standard inspection we do not remove the wheels or brake drums this means in some cases we will be unable to assess the amount of brake lining wear.

Wheels & tyres we check all tyres for wear and condition

Test drive sometimes due to heavy traffic conditions we are not always able to carry an appropriate road test - this will always be explained on your report.
