We’ve all heard the horror stories, and some of us have even experienced one; the nightmare where you drive off the lot in the new or used vehicle you just bought and a few days or weeks later, problems start to emerge. Maybe you even did your due diligence beforehand. You test drove the vehicle, listened for any strange noises, checked the dashboard, blinkers, windshield wipers, and brakes.

The fact is, there’s only so much you can check on your own, and a even a brand new car can have a host of problems. Protecting yourself with a pre-purchase inspection is the smart, sensible thing to do. Having a pre-purchase inspection conducted by the professionals at The Shop Automotive is even smarter. We can place your vehicle on our lift and look for evidence of any existing or potential problems before they become yours.
