Vehicle Inspections

Pre-Purchase Inspections

When buying a vehicle of any make or model secondhand, it’s important to make sure you’re getting what you’re paying for. That great price on a vehicle you’re thinking of buying might be because the owner knows more about the interior of the vehicle than they’re letting on…

Before you part ways with your hard earned cash, arrange for the vehicle to be inspected at AutoplusWA. We’ll find any lingering mechanical problems in a secondhand vehicle before they become your lingering mechanical problems.

Digital Inspection Reports

At AutoplusWA we deliver clear and transparent information about your vehicle, this includes a digital inspection and checklist that records any issues or future issues that we may find during the inspection. We also take pictures to show you and help better explain what the concern is. We then save them to your job card for future reference.

All AutoplusWA Services include a digital inspection as do our Pre-Purchase inspections, call to arrange your inspection today.

Insurance & Warranty Inspections

After an accident or your vehicle being stolen, having a thorough and trustworthy inspection of your vehicle is key to getting an accurate quote on the cost of repairs, which helps get repairs underway sooner and you back on the road faster.

As a trusted auto repairer, our inspection of your vehicle will uncover all damage made to the vehicle, ensuring your insurer gets an accurate quote the first time.

We can also carry our inspections for Insurance or loan companies who need an inspection to confirm the vehicles condition prior to getting finance accepted.

Safe T Stop

Unlicensed Vehicle Inspections

If your vehicle’s registration has lapsed, it can’t be re-registered without first being inspected by a Department of Transport authorised inspection station.

At AutoplusWA we have a full time department of transport inspector who can offer these examinations onsite for all passenger vehicles and light commercial vehicles under 4.5 tonnes. Provided it meets our state’s requirements for vehicles of its type, your vehicle will be given a clean bill of health, and be allowed to be re-registered.

Yellow Sticker Inspection

When your vehicle is found to be unroadworthy, it can be issued with a Department of Transport defect notice, more commonly referred to as a work order or yellow sticker. These are issued with an expiry date, after which your vehicle loses its registration and can’t be used on WA roads.

At AutoplusWA we have a full-time Department of Transport inspector, who can inspect your vehicle to verify that our auto technicians have had the necessary repairs made to your vehicle, allowing you to get back on the road with minimum hassle.
