Used Car Inspection

A used car is always a gamble – don’t risk thousands of your hard-earned dollars on purchasing a used car without a thorough inspection! Most reputable sellers will allow you to take the car off their premises for an independent inspection (if your seller doesn’t, walk away). Rely on the professionals at Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres for a thorough mechanical inspection and honest assessment of the vehicle — we’ll make sure you don’t inherit a carload of expensive problems!

Why You Should Get A Professional Pre-Purchase Inspection

A professional Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre used car inspection at our Vancouver locations, as well as many other cities BC and Alberta, comprises an extensive 140-point checklist that will reveal evidence of any urgent and pending vehicle maintenance issues. The up-to-date equipment and tools available in our facilities, and professional detailed mechanical inspections of the car, will reveal most of the issues and fluid leaks that a quick top side visual inspection at the seller’s site may not turn up.

At the end of our 140-point pre-purchase peace-of-mind inspection, our technicians will provide you with a detailed checklist inspection report, along with an estimate for any necessary repairs.

Don’t leave the purchase of your used vehicle to chance. Bring your next hot deal to a Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres garage for pre-purchase inspection by an experienced and professional auto mechanic.
