Pre Purchase Car Inspections 

My Car Inspections are Caranalytics recommended provider for pre purchase accident damaged vehicle inspections.


Having identified your potential purchase as a Cat S or Cat N insurance total loss you will likely want to fully understand the nature of the damage sustained and how it will impact the vehicles value and roadworthiness. Our in-depth total loss/write off inspections are only carried out by our own fully qualified staff engineers. All our certified automotive engineers have a working history within the accident repair industry and are registered professionals at The Institute of the Motor Industry. Additionally they hold valid ATA/VDA vehicle damage assessor qualifications which require certification every 3 years at Thatcham Research, the UK's independent research centre..


Our comprehensive pre purchase car inspections cover Cat N, Cat S, Cat C and Cat D total loss classifications and can be carried out at a car dealers premises or private sellers home/work place. Your potential purchase will be subject to a 300+ point vehicle inspection which includes a diagnostic scan to verify the function of the vehicle safety systems including air bags and seat belts. The inspection covers all aspects of the vehicle but most importantly assesses/identifies the area/extent of the damage and quality of repairs carried out.


Having carried out your Caranalytics car history check you will be fully aware of the total loss category recorded against the vehicle. Prior to carrying out our physical inspection we carry out a further investigation to help identify any other additional background information relating to the total loss marker that will assist the inspection process. Sellers often don't know or don't fully disclose the nature of the orignal damage so this additional check helps highlight any potential problems that would need to be satisfied during our inspection.
