Car purchase inspection (CPI)


On this page ...


Unless you are an experienced mechanic, how do you know whether that dream car is mechanically and structurally sound?

If you get it wrong, your new pride and joy may just be a very expensive repair bill waiting around the corner at its next MOT.

On top of this, is the mileage genuine? Has the car been stolen, or have any outstanding finance? Has it ever been involved in a serious accident?

There are no guarantees in life, but a CPI from our depot can help reduce the chances of the worst happening to you.

If you are buying a used car, a CPI may be one of the most sensible decisions you could ever make.
