In the past you might have got a vehicle inspection when
buying a new car but Queensland law now requires that the seller must get a
safety inspection done prior to selling the car. The certificate lasts for
two months and should be displayed in the vehicle.
This is a good initiative to make our roads safer. If you
are in the market for a car and you look at one that doesn't have a safety
certificate displayed you should be very weary.
This is the most comprehensive vehicle inspection that we
offer and it's pretty thorough. If you are planning a long holiday, perhaps a
trip around Australia, or an interstate trip to visit family then you might
want to have your vehicle fully inspected to identify any concerns that might need to be repaired or replaced soon, something you want to
minimise doing while on holiday.
End of Warranty
The end of your new car warranty is a good time to get a
full inspection of your car to identify anything that needs to be replaced or
fixed in the near future. You don't want to be slogged with expensive repairs
just after your warranty expires so it just makes sense to get a full check now
and be on the safe side.
