Why Choose Us?

Digital Paint Testing
We are equipped to test the paint thickness to determine any possible pre-existing repairs, body filler, or any other nasty surprises under the paintwork.

Diagnostic Testing
We provide computer diagnostics scanning, and comprehensively check all available onboard modules to discover any hidden faults. We can reset any inactive faults and monitor the vehicle for the remainder of the inspection.

Complimentary Valuations
We are expert valuers and can provide you with a valuation report, with attached market examples, to ensure our clients are paying within the expected market value for any vehicle.​

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.

What is a paint thickness test?

A coating thickness gauge is utilised to test the coating thickness of ferrous and non-ferrous metals (otherwise known as magnetic and non-magnetic metal surfaces).

​Ferrous metals include:

  • Steel panels
  • Iron chassis and engine blocks

Non-ferrous metals include:

  • Aluminium panels
  • Tin panels


​When conducting an inspection and a piece of equipment, we are able to determine not only the thickness of the subject panel coating (i.e paint), but to determine whether there are any underlaying imperfections that we cannot see to the naked eye.

These imperfections include:

  • Body rust
  • Chassis rust
  • Body filler
  • Substandard welds
  • Rust plates
  • Fish plates
  • Sand blasting
  • Primer thickness
  • Body deadener


All of the above mentioned are crucial factors in determining if the subject vehicle deemed as being safe with no other unexpected pre-existing damages
​or repairs.

In short, a coasting thickness or paint thickness test is crucial when completing vehicle inspections. No matter if it is for a pre-purchase inspection, warranty inspection or repair dispute inspections.
