Pre-Purchase Inspections 


What is a Pre Purchase Inspection?


A Pre-Purchase Inspection is a comprehensive report of the condition of a vehicle. It is peace of mind for you as the buyer and a great negotiating tool with the seller.


Our Fully Qualified Motor Mechanics and Approved Examiner’s spend every day looking for faults on vehicles when issuing Safety Certificates. Their experience in all makes and models gives you the advantage when buying a vehicle with a Pre-Purchase Inspection by M1 Safety Certificates.


The examiners usually have seen the same vehicle you are buying in almost every condition and can give you an unbiased, experienced opinion if the wear on the vehicle is fair or not.


Once the inspection is completed the examiner will call you to discuss the condition of the vehicle and answer any questions that you may have while they are still with the vehicle.

We are your eyes and ears.


Compression tests, Car History Reports/PPSR (Previously known as a REV’s check) as well as photographs are available upon request.

" I recently brought a car from the tender center. I needed to find a mechanic that would appreciate the vehicle I purchased. It did not take me long to find M1 Safety Certificates as the reviews speak for themselves. Well Done Mark & Lisa Your service is exceptional. I turned up unexpectedly at their premises and both Lisa and Mark made me feel welcomed and invited. I can see they are always happy, friendly and helpful and they will always go that extra mile to help in any way they can. Mark is open, honest and reliable. He explains what needs to be done to my car in simple terms so I understand and is always happy to answer any questions I might have had. Best mechanics I have ever come across. Mark has also explained what I might require for my next service and what I should need attending to before anything else. I will not hesitate to inform everyone I come across about using their business to fix and service their vehicles. Regards "
