Pre-Purchase Inspections

Don’t buy a lemon! Even the best-looking vehicles and machinery can come with hidden complications. Kel’s diesel specialists will travel to site and conduct a detailed pre-purchase inspection, giving you peace of mind before you make a purchase.

We have your back

Are you interested in purchasing a new vehicle or machine? Are you unsure of its mechanical condition? Nobody wants to purchase a vehicle or machine that’s not mechanically and structurally sound or legally roadworthy. We’ll travel to site and carry out a detailed pre-purchase inspection, providing you with peace of mind before buying.  Transparency and honesty are our values – we won’t hesitate to tell you if your intended purchase is a lemon!

Get your money's worth

Don’t pay too much for a purchase! Our pre-purchase inspections can save you tens of thousands of dollars on a potentially unreliable purchase. We’re on your side, making sure you’re not paying too much for what you’re getting.

We can also help you negotiate the purchase price based on inspection findings and potential faults. If you’re willing to purchase a vehicle despite of its faults, we can quote you in advance for the repairs needed. We’ll give you a complete idea of how much it will cost to make the vehicle roadworthy, so you can adjust your offer accordingly.

Our team works widely across all South East Queensland. No matter where you are in SE Queensland, we can travel to you to carry out your pre-purchase inspection. If you’re purchasing from interstate and unable to physically inspect a vehicle yourself, we can travel to inspect it for you.

Testimonials

Very honest and punctual service, Kel dropped into work one day and checked my slowly leaking diesel fuel pump, instead of trying to sell me a reco pump and full overhaul, he advised that it was only minor and obviously it would be best to fix it but it isn't urgent. That's how you know you have got a good mechanic...

Kel takes the stress of machinery problems away with his down to earth, no messing around approach - he is very trustworthy. There are never any problems with invoices - Mel has that under control. Great to deal with, we recommend to all.
