Vehicle Inspections & Fleet Servicing

Vehicle Inspections and Fleet Servicing – Queanbeyan

As one of the leading auto repair workshops in Queanbeyan, Performance Plus provides a range of additional services, including vehicle inspections / reports and fleet car servicing.

Pre- and Post-Purchase Vehicle Inspections – Queanbeyan

Are you looking to buy a used vehicle? – or just purchased one? A pre- or post-purchase vehicle inspection takes the mystery out of buying a used car – leading to better decision-making and greater peace of mind. Where a physical inspection isn’t possible, we provide a high-level digital vehicle inspection (DVI) service.

During a physical inspection, we look the vehicle over from top to bottom – noting any obvious faults and serious potential issues. Our inspection aims to draw your attention to issues affecting vehicle safety, reliability and roadworthiness.

Helpful hints when buying a used vehicle

  • Search well-known automotive websites, such as Carsales and Redbook, to benchmark used car prices.
  • When buying privately, make sure you sight the logbook (to ensure the vehicle has been serviced regularly), check for encumbrance (money owed on the vehicle)* and organise a pre-purchase vehicle inspection.
  • A Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) check can be performed online via a number of 3rd party providers.
  • Although buying a vehicle privately is usually cheaper than from a dealer, be aware that there’s no statutory warranty or cooling-off period.
  • A licensed motor vehicle dealer must provide a statutory warranty on a used car that’s less than 10 years old and travelled under 160,000 kilometres. A used car statutory warranty is valid for three months or 5,000 kilometres (whichever comes first).
  • Buying a used car from a licensed motor vehicle dealer ensures guaranteed title; in other words, the vehicle can’t be repossessed by a finance provider.
  • If a private seller or car dealer refuses your request for a pre-purchase vehicle inspection, you may be better off walking away from the sale.
