PRE-PURCHASE CAR INSPECTION

PRE-PURCHASE CAR INSPECTION

PRE-PURCHASE CAR INSPECTION

German Experts Service Center is highly recommending our customers before investing in any pre-owned car to carry a pre-purchase inspection to secure your safety and your money.

We have seen a lot of situations where car owners brought the car in German Experts Service Center for the periodical service or for our German Experts Car Warranty and at a closer look our car mechanics discovered huge issues and hard damaged vehicles that required lots of money and hard work to comply with the safety rules and be driven normally.

Below we have listed a series of have to check points when buying a car and after our inspection we will provide you with a report that will accurately indicate the real condition of the car you want to buy.

Not buying but selling a vehicle? Increase or keep the real price of the car by providing a report of the car you want to sell and we can guarantee that this will assure a fast car selling without having to negotiate your price.
