Complete Rust Analysis
While buying a classic car is an exciting experience, it could also be a very expensive lesson! We are well aware of the potential issues that lie beneath a seemingly ‘nice’ paint job.  During our pre purchase classic & muscle car inspections, we take particular attention to the body work, floor panels and chassis rails as standard.

Compression Leak Testing (head-gasket condition)
The Compression leak test detects any presence of Co2 (carbon dioxide) within the cooling system.​ The presence of Co2 indicates there is an internal combustion leak within the engine which will ultimately cause compression drop in the cylinders.

A Performance Vehicle Inspection Benefits Both Sides of a Deal

Reasons for a Performance Vehicle Pre-Sale Inspection
Most people prefer shopping for second-hand vehicles because it typically costs about half or a third of the price of a new vehicle. However, by nature of the fact that it is second-hand, the condition would have somewhat deteriorated, and the measure of how much determines the selling price. The pre-sale inspection helps to keep a balance between the condition and price of the car.​

  • It’s difficult for a buyer to judge the actual condition of the vehicle, and in most cases, they give the seller the benefit of the doubt. However, it is the responsibility of the seller to disclose every factor related to the vehicle. When you hire a professional to conduct a performance car inspection, you hand the report to the potential buyer, which generates a sense of trust.
  • Many car deals fall through because the seller has set the price too high. When you receive a thorough report from an automotive technician, it lists all the underlying issues that haven’t yet manifested in affecting the operation of the vehicle. As such, they provide the seller with a realistic price that is attainable for potential buyers. 
  • If you expect to receive a particular amount for your vehicle, putting it through a pre-sales inspection allows you to conduct the necessary repairs. After that, you demonstrate to the buyer the repairs and other work you’ve carried out to restore the vehicle to its fine condition and can demand your price.
