RACV Vehicle Inspections Bendigo, Ballarat and Shepparton

RACV Vehicle Inspections

When it comes to big purchases such as buying a new car, It’s all about confidence. We recommended booking your prospective vehicle in for a pre-purchase inspection to get a clear idea of the vehicle’s current state and what work you might consider getting done. 

Some people like to use these pre-purchase inspection results as a way to bargain with the seller, others just like to have peace of mind that they’re getting a fair dinkum deal.  

We understand that buying a vehicle can be a time sensitive task, that’s why when you call us to book a pre-purchase test we’ll aim to get you booked in ASAP. 



Do you do onsite tests?

No, we don’t. We believe there is nothing like checking a car on a hoist. We wouldn’t want to skip over, or miss something important while trying to complete a Pre Purchase check on the ground. That’s why we have cars come into the workshop- so we can provide a thorough check.

How do I get the vehicle to you Workshop?

We recommend speaking with the seller to arrange delivery of the vehicle to the work.

What happens to the test?

The test is yours. You paid for it. You will be emailed a copy and will get to speak with the mechanic who performed the test. We do not discuss results with the person presenting the car. You may wish to use these test results to bargain with the seller.

How do I pay for the test?

Usually, the tests are paid for with a credit card over the phone. You are welcome to direct debit, or eftpos at our offices. However, the funds must be cleared before we start the test.

How much do the Pre Purchase Inspections cost?

The price can vary depending on the type of vehicle, the age and how comprehensively you want the vehicle inspected. It’s best to give us a call so we can give you an accurate price
