Pre-Delivery Inspections

Thoroughly checked and ready to go

All vehicles are inspected on our ramps which is more rigorous than an annual MOT prior to delivery. The following components are examined visually and checked manually for correct and safe operation but without dismantling. We then carry out a thorough road test to ensure that normal engine operating temperatures are reached and that the car is driving normally in all respects. The whole process takes approximately one hour and longer depending on the type of vehicle.
