Pre-Purchase Inspection Means Post-Purchase Confidence

GWAR Pre Purchase Inspection 2When you make the decision to buy a used vehicle, you’re making a financial investment no matter how big or small. Whether it is a high-mileage or low-mileage used vehicle, this vehicle has some sort of story behind it. If you’re not looking for surprises or other repairs that come up once the keys are in your hand, a pre-purchase inspection makes a lot of sense. It can take the surprise out of owning this vehicle and could save you a lot of money down the road on the things that the seller “forgot” to tell you or that you may have overlooked.

Consumers don’t take advantage of pre-purchase inspections enough in our humble opinion. At Good Works Auto Repair, a pre-purchase inspection will only cost you $89.95. Investing a little bit of money before you purchase a used vehicle could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run. Knowing what is wrong or what needs to be repaired can help sway your decision, or at least give you leverage when bartering for a better price. Then, you can use those savings to have the auto repairs done by a trusted repair shop.
