Pre-Purchase Inspections

Don’t get caught buying a lemon.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Without a doubt you would have heard horror stories about buying a lemon. 

Some cars can become money pits quickly and also your worst nightmare.

So, how do you pick the good from the bad?

By having an experienced mechanic look over the vehicle.

It can save you big money in the long run.

Even though the vehicle may have a Safety Certificate, it does not mean that the vehicle is mechanically sound.

Things that are not included in the Safety Certificate is the service history. 

Has the car been serviced regularly? Are there any major services or timing belts due?

This also shows the buyer the you are looking for a vehicle that is in good condition as promised.

It is an effective report that you can use to negotiate the price or repairs to be completed at their cost.

Most importantly, this is before you take possession of the vehicle.

What is a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

A Pre-Purchase Inspection is a comprehensive report of the condition of a vehicle.

Our fully qualified technicians have extensive experience on a wide range of makes and models.

Their experience in all makes and models gives you the advantage when buying a vehicle. 

With a Pre-Purchase Inspection carried out by M1 Safety Certificates you can buy with confidence.

Once the inspection is completed the examiner will call you to discuss the condition of the vehicle.

You can ask questions directly to the mechanic that has actually inspected the vehicle.

A report follows the verbal report via email for you to keep.

We are working for you. We are your eyes and ears.

I used this firm for a pre purchase inspection on a very rare, high end vehicle as im interstate. The wealth of knowledge on the vehicle I received was astounding, considering its rarity. Even down to acknowledging the battery fitted was not specific to the given model (I personally have a grand understanding of cars and build them for a living however didn’t notice this myself even). Road test was accurate, conditions overall were spot on, and yes, I expect the best. They delivered. To top it off, the invoice for their service was below expectations making it supremely affordable and “cheap insurance “ in my eyes. Great team, and very happy INTERSTATE customer �

I'd like to thank Stacey who inspected the car I was considering to purchase. His pre-inspection report and advice greatly assisted me not to buy the vehicle. He literally helped me save $9,000 ! Although the car had a roadworthy certificate, Stacey informed me about multiple flaws including its hand brake not working, accident damage to front bumper, damage to right rear door trim, A/c not working 100% etc. It's my first time to use M1 Safety Certificates for a pre-purchase inspection. I have no hesitance to recommend it to everyone with great confidence.

Where very impressed by the professionalism, accuracy, and honesty. This is a company you can trust. Economical prices as well. I required a safety cert for my scooter for sale and it was breeze, and wanted a mobile mechanic. Stacey was out the next day, job done within half an hour, and no BS, straight forward, honest advice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED....yes I'm shouting ...from the rooftops, was pretty impressed 😎

Absolutely tremendous service... I've recently moved from Sydney and was looking for an honest company to conduct a vehicle inspection as my vehicle is due for registration. I was given the number of Chris from M1 Safety Certificates by a trusted friend. Chris was very polite, thoughtful and honest so Chris I want to give you a very big thankyou here on FB. I could not recommend anyone more than the gentlemen at M1 Safety Certificates. Mark from Carrara

These guys are just so good at what they do, the staff is friendly and competent and they charge reasonable prices. It's a place I can trust and I am usually very iffy about handing over my car to anyone(!). But with M1 I have no concerns and they're available to convenient hours. I think overall, whoever doesn't have the need to go to their dealer repair service any longer, this is the place to go on the Gold Coast. And if the repair may take longer, the street here has a couple cafes for convenience and Harbour Town Shopping Centre is across the road, just a 5 minute walk.
