Pre-Purchase Inspections 

Looking at buying a pre-owned vehicle? It’s always great to have peace-of-mind before you part with your hard-earned money. Have confidence in your decision with a pre-purchase vehicle inspection. As the single largest collection of automotive marques in New Zealand, we represent many of the world’s most popular and trusted brands that are backed by a wealth of award-winning, experienced technicians, ready to assist you on your vehicle-buying journey.

Wherever you’re buying your car from, our highly-skilled technicians will asses the vehicle as if it was their own purchase decision. Then, we’ll provide you with a report highlighting any concerns, and our honest opinion on whether we believe the vehicle is worth the asking price, plus any tips or questions to ask the seller.

Following your inspection, if you do choose to purchase the vehicle, ask us about the benefits of servicing it at an authorised dealership.

Benefits of pre-purchase inspections

A car that looks great on the outside can hide a multitude of issues inside. Whilst it’s great to asses the superficial condition of the vehicle (any bumps, dents, scratches, tyre condition, seats etc.), an expert can diagnose any issues going on under the hood that could save you money in the future. Not only do pre-purchase inspections outline any issues and can shed light on a vehicles past, they can also be beneficial as a bargaining tool – you may end up with a better deal on the car you’re looking at!

Recently had an Audi a7 inspected by Chris and the team, that I was looking to purchase from a non Audi dealership. The service and communication throughout the process was impeccable, and the inspection flagged up multiple issues with the vehicle, which resulted in me not buying it. I highly recommend Archibalds Audi for your servicing requirements, or pre purchase inspections.
