Negotiate Your Used Car Price with a Pre-Purchase Inspection

Pre-Purchase Inspection in Tallmadge, OH

Every year, tens of thousands of motorists across the United States save money by purchasing a used car. Buying pre-owned can be a good move financially. Why pay thousands of dollars more for the latest bells and whistles when you can drive an older car that meets all your transportation needs for half the cost?

At the same time, buying a used car or truck involves risk. In some scenarios, such as buying a car with no warranty from a private seller, you may even assume all risk.

What About Car History Reports? Vehicle history reports, like those from CarFax, can be helpful. However, they're not perfect. According to Consumer Reports, car history reports rely on information reported to the police and auto insurance companies. Unfortunately, not all owners report accidents. There's another catch, too. If you're looking at a car that was previously used as a rental vehicle, there's a chance it'll show a clean history even if it was involved in an accident. This is because many rental companies are self-insured.

What is a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

A pre-purchase inspection is a type of inspection performed on a pre-owned vehicle before you buy it. During a pre-inspection check, technicians thoroughly inspect the vehicle you're considering buying. An inspection can tell you if there's any heavy wear and tear, so you'll know if you need to replace parts soon. You can use this information to renegotiate your buying price or avoid a bad sale altogether.

Here's why a pre-purchase inspection is worth your time:

  • Negotiate Sale Price: If it looks like you'll need to replace the brake pads or other auto parts soon, you can use this information to your advantage. Why pay a higher price when you know you'll need to spend time and money to get the vehicle serviced in the near future? You want a good deal that takes into account what's due for service soon.
  • Enjoy Peace of Mind: It's frustrating to drive away in a newly purchased vehicle only to end up at the auto repair shop a week later. With a pre-purchase inspection, you know the condition of your vehicle and can drive with confidence. Feel good about your choice knowing its true condition before you drive off the lot.
  • Avoid Bad Deals: No one wants to regret purchasing their next car. If a vehicle isn't all the seller claims it to be, you deserve to know. Be a savvy buyer, and get a pre-purchase inspection to see if you're buying someone else's problems or scoring a good price on a good car.
