Purchase your car with confidence!
Don’t be an unsuspecting victim of a used car sale! Although we have helped thousands of used car buyers in Singapore buy a pre-owned car with confidence at Garage R, we have also saved a handful of potential buyers from purchasing a ticking time bomb after uncovering hidden defects during the evaluation service.
Our car evaluation team of experts will provide prospective car buyers an independent and factual assessment on the exterior and interior condition of pre-owned cars, including under the hood and vehicle. The assessment will help car buyers to get a sense of the actual condition of the pre-owned car and help them make the final decision on buying.
This involves a comprehensive process (roughly 1.5 to 2 hours) involving a series of static vehicle checks and road test, offering our customers the confidence and assurance they need on their final purchase.
What's included in our pre-purchase inspection service?
Our comprehensive pre-purchase evaluation is carried out by professional technicians and includes the following:
Computerized Diagnostics & Trouble Shooting
Comprehensive fault-detection using factory-grade diagnostics equipment to detect intermittent faults that may not yet manifest as visible symptoms. This also includes identifying if the car’s odometer has been tampered with and the list of erase faults.
Detailed vehicle condition assessment by our technical inspection team to detect potential failures and advise on repairs that may be required soon. Although this is mostly common wear and tear, it can be used as a negotiating factor with the seller!
Road Worthiness Test
On-road roadworthiness test by experienced assessors to determine drivability when the car is moving and assess on-road behavior. We will assess and highlight noise and vibrations if any, and smoothness and response of the vehicle.
Accident Damage Assessment
Accident damage assessment focuses on detecting signs of major accident damage to the chassis and undercarriage. These are mostly unrepairable and should be considered the biggest factor when choosing to go ahead with the purchase.
Trusted by discerning Singapore car owners
We have two decades of experience dealing with Pre-Purchase Inspection and the personal advice that we give post assessment is founded on the principles of honesty, professionalism and sincerity. Despite there being other evaluation services in the market, you cannot buy experience and that personal touch that we offer to all our customers. We understand that everyone appreciates good service, and we do our best to report the full findings and discuss issues that concern the car buyer the most as well.
If you are looking to buy a used car soon, we cannot emphasize this enough, but a Pre-Purchase Inspection is a must to have to ensure that you purchase your car with confidence. After all, buying a car is a start of your ownership journey and we will be more than happy at Garage R to help you ensure that it is as smooth sailing as it should be!
