There’s more to car vehicle inspections and assessments than just being a mechanic.

We do not do motor vehicle repairs on any vehicles that we inspect on your behalf. Hence, we have no interest in trying to sell you the repairs that a vehicle may need or do servicing that may be needed on those vehicles that we may inspect. Hence, our inspections are without any advantage gained or intent to profit after the pre-purchase inspection. 

We have no affiliation with Smash Repairers, Car Yards, Auction Houses or private sellers. They do not persuade us to help them sell their vehicles, so you can be sure we have your only interests in hand when we conduct our Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection or Motor Vehicle Assessment.

Let us help you! with your
Pre-purchase Vehicle Inspections
and avoid the disappointment
of buying the wrong car

Our Approach

A consistent approach to every assessment procedure conducted is your guarantee when dealing with The Vehicle Inspector. When reasonably practicable to do so, and in accordance with the NSW Government State Insurance Regulatory Authority, The Vehicle Inspector will at all times:

  • Ensure that the parties to the application understand the nature of the application, the issues to be considered and the role of The Vehicle Inspector, the Assessor, as an independent decision-maker;
  • Explain to the parties any or all aspects of the procedure of the assessment, and any interim decision or ruling made by the Assessor during the course of the assessment, in respect of that procedure, that relates to the application;
  • Ensure that all parties have the opportunity to have their submissions considered; and
  • Ensure that the parties have had an opportunity to explore the settlement of any dispute.
