Pre Purchase Inspections

Burgess Automotive pre-purchase inspections on vehicles later than year 2000 cost $138.00 including GST and consist of:

  1.  Up to 1.5 hours labour (* see note below)
  2.  Relative compression test
  3.  Test lane report
  4.  Printed report

Scanner check to access stored fault codes and data is an extra $70.00 if requested

We will endeavor to report on all aspects of your chosen vehicle as presented to us on the day but some aspects can be hidden and not easily seen with a visual inspection.  A pre-purchase inspection is certainly recommended before purchasing but not a guarantee to trouble free motoring.

Something to consider before making a booking for a pre purchase inspection is "high ks = high risk”.

We will give you a precise appraisal of your chosen vehicle but will not be able to tell you how well it will serve you in the future.

* Note: Arrangements can made to spend extra time on a pre-purchase inspection and will be charged at $25.00 per 15 minutes.
