Why You Need a Pre-Purchase Inspection When Buying a Used Car

pre purchase inspection

Found the car of your dreams? The perfect ride? The one you want to spend the rest of your life with? Well, the near future, anyway…

Hold on. Before you fully commit, you need to do one very important thing: You need to bring your car into Searles for a pre-purchase inspection.

Buying a car is a big purchase that you shouldn’t just jump into. Even though you’re in love and want nothing more than to cozy up in the driver’s seat and speed away, you need to make sure you’re buying a car, not a headache.

Searle’s Auto is an ICBC designated inspection facility and a member of the Better Business Bureau, and has been servicing vehicles for over 30 years. When you have your car inspected by our trusted technicians, you…


Won’t buy someone else’s problem

Things are not always as good as they seem. The vehicle may have undetected mechanical issues, may have been involved in an accident, or may have undisclosed problems or hidden damage. But the good news is that we can spot what you can’t!

We’re experienced in all makes and models and offer an unbiased, bumper-to-bumper assessment of the vehicle. We’ll not only give you a detailed report of any existing conditions, but will also give you a sense of future expenses and how the car was maintained in the past.


Will be able to make an informed decision

With our inspection, you’ll have all the necessary information to make a smart purchase decision. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting (or not getting) and can shop with confidence knowing you’re backed by the experts.


Will have negotiating power

Pre-purchase inspections are a powerful bargaining tool. When armed with knowledge of the vehicle’s flaws, you’ll be able to negotiate a price that’s fair. That means you’ll save big bucks, whether you’re buying from a private owner or a used car dealership.


Will kill two birds with one stone

You need a pre-purchase inspection? Check. You need a great auto repair shop with mechanics you can rely on? Check check.


When you bring a used vehicle into Searles, you won’t just be getting a pre-purchase inspection. You’ll be getting award-winning service from a trusted local business—the kind of service relationships are built on. We look forward to getting to know you and your vehicle, today and in the future.
