Why do I need a pre-purchase inspection?
It is considered best practice to get a pre-purchase inspection on a second-hand vehicle before you purchase it, especially if the sale is being done privately and not through a dealership. When you purchase a second-hand vehicle from a used car lot or a dealership, you are covered by Australian consumer laws – if they sell you a ‘lemon’ then as a consumer, you have some legal rights and there are options for getting your money back or having the vehicle repaired at the cost of the business who sold you the car.
When you purchase a vehicle privately, via a website online or an ad in the paper, you are not covered by the same laws – if they sell you a ‘dud’ that is going to cost more to fix than you bought the car for… well that is just bad luck. You can ask for your money back but they are not legally obligated to so. That is why it is recommended that you take a professional with you when you inspect the car for the first time – we’ll be able to check out all the major components of the vehicle and let you know if it requires and major or minor repairs. You can then use this information to assist you in deciding whether to purchase as well as to bargain on price with the seller.
