A pre-purchase inspection (PPI) refers to a vehicle inspection conducted before a vehicle (usually used) is purchased. While there is no universally recognized “checklist” of things a mechanic needs to check during the PPI, it is best to go with a garage with certified technicians so they can do a complete check and let you know of all minor and major issues the vehicle may have.
Ideally, you should get a PPI performed prior to buying a vehicle. This will let you know exactly what and how much work needs to be done to the vehicle and if the report shows a lot of work, you can decide to negotiate the price or look for a different vehicle altogether. If you do decide to go ahead, make sure you take ownership of the vehicle the moment the PPI is conducted.
If the seller seems hesitant to give his vehicle for a pre-purchase inspection, that may be a sign that it’s time to look for a different vehicle as he/she might be trying to hide something. It’s imperative to get a PPI done from a certified garage that’s not affiliated or connected to the seller.
PPI is not free and most garages charge, but it’s a small change compared to getting a potential car with major issues and is a great way to negotiate the price of the vehicle. It saves you from a potential headache and ensures the vehicle you are buying is a sound investment.
