Car Inspection Services

Want to make sure that a vehicle is in perfect working condition before you buy? Buying a vehicle can be a pretty expensive process, and pre-purchase car inspections are the best way to ensure you are getting exactly what you paid for. At Shift Automotive, our team will check every mechanical part of the vehicle for damage, wear, and overall condition before you buy. We can then provide you with a comprehensive report detailing any issues you may need to address, including internal mechanical faults and external cosmetic issues.

To learn more about what we offer as part of our pre-purchase inspections, and how much it will cost to get a full report on your chosen vehicle, speak with Shift Automotive today.

Whether you’re looking to purchase a vehicle or have your existing car checked out, the team at Shift Automotive can help. We understand the importance of a thorough inspection, and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.

If you’re buying or selling a secondhand car, a pre-purchase inspection is essential for peace of mind. The Shift Automotive team can give you a complete picture of the vehicle, the state it’s in, and any issues you need to be aware of. This helps ensure your new car is safe, well-priced, and won’t require costly repairs just around the corner.

On the other hand, the longer you’ve had your car, the more likely it is you’ll need a general safety inspection. If your vehicle hasn’t been inspected recently, there’s a good chance there are lurking issues that could be making your vehicle unsafe on the road.

At Shift Automotive, we are the only Bundaberg mechanic with a SafeTStop machine. In addition to your standard vehicle safety check, we can inspect for suspension, brakes and wheel alignment with the latest technology.

If you need reliable car inspections in Bundaberg, Shift Automotive is the name that you can trust. To book your vehicle’s appointment, contact our friendly staff today.
