used car inspection in BostonA rather popular service of Mobile Mechanic Pros Boston is the pre-purchase used car inspection by our ASE certified mechanics. The reason for that is that this service may save a lot of cash for our clients when they decide to purchase a used car. Many people make the serious mistake of just buying a car after a brief test drive and based on a few superficial checks. It is understandable that your mechanic skills are not as comprehensive you could perform such a job on your own, so do not hesitate to reach out to us so our colleagues could send an experienced mechanic to inspect your desired automobile.

Why do I need a car inspection service?

Once You have decided you like the car that you plan to purchase, it is very important to do standard checks checks to find out if it’s a peach or a lemon. Based on just a couple of visual signals it’s all but impossible to decide if this particular car is a wise purchase for you or even a complete waste of cash. The best choice is to ask an expert mechanic to do a thorough review of the car, that way you can create a fairly safe choice.

A used car inspection becomes particularly important if you would like to get a vehicle from another part of the nation and you have no way to check it by yourself. In these scenarios a mobile mechanic can be a huge help to perform the needed inspection tasks and generate a complete report for you about the car.

Booking a mobile used car inspection is especially suitable for all parties. The review could be performed on the spot and the report itself can also be written the exact same day and shared with the potential buyer.

Obviously, this report sets you in a better position when you’re talking about the purchase price of the car. This way you will have a concrete point of reference when discussing with the seller, in many cases having the ability to reduce the original price based on potential future auto repair tasks which might have been not considered with no prior inspection. At Mobile Mechanic Pros Boston we have many years of experience in used automobile inspections, so you can call us with confidence if you want to request this type of service.

About how long does a vehicle inspection take?

As you could imagine, this is dependent upon the reason of the inspection and the make and model of the automobile, but in most cases a pre-purchase used car inspection takes between 1,5 and 2,5 hours. The static tests can be performed in less time, but part of the review is a test drive by the mobile mechanic in various driving situations which require some time. Bear in mind, that the buyer does not have to be present at the review, since our mechanic will share a comprehensive report about it later which includes all the necessary information.
