Found a sweet ride?  Or selling your pride and joy?  Avoid a sour taste with a pre-purchase inspection

Buying a car is a big purchase.  Most people spend as much as they can afford to get the best possible vehicle. 


So imagine driving your car for a couple of weeks before discovering a problem which could add hundreds or even thousands to the purchase price?  Or if you're selling your vehicle, how do you let your buyers know your car really has been well-looked after and is great buying?

Mechanical issues can be difficult to detect on a short test drive or a quick look around a car.  A pre-purchase inspection by a qualified mechanic is the best way to check for potentially costly issues. 

A pre-purchase inspection also qualifies your vehicle for one of our comprehensive mechanical warranties, offering even greater peace of mind for buyers.

That's why we have teamed up with Hometune Mobile Mechanics to offer independent, mobile pre-purchase inspections in the Auckland area.




Hometune has been operating in the Auckland area since 1978 and has built an excellent reputation for trusted service and convenience for its customers.  

100% mobile - which is 100% easier when you're organising an inspection with the seller.

Experienced technicians - all Hometune mechanics are experienced technicians who receive ongoing training in the latest diagnostic technology.

100% independent - Hometune's reputation means too much to be anything else.

Free quoting service - if a problem is discovered, Hometune can let you know how much it will cost to fix or what further investigations are required - so you can decide if it's a dealbreaker or not.

Fast, friendly service - Hometune prides itself on outstanding customer service from end to end - and will be happy to answer your questions and provide further information wherever possible. 

Outstanding value -  two report options offer outstanding value and choice to customers.  See below for more details.

Hometune Pre Purchase Inspection



We get that not everyone's needs are the same.  That's why we have developed two different types of inspections to suit different customers and budgets.


Mechanical Check

  • Comprehensive mechanical inspection

  • Includes computer diagnostic scan

  • Vehicle condition report - interior and exterior

  • Outline of any repairs or further investigation required

  • Indicative quote to carry out further testing or recommended repairs

The Comprehensive report looks at the car inside and out and is the only pre-purchase inspection that includes a diagnostic scan to check for potentially costly faults.  This report is ideal for out of town buyers or for anyone who wants an expert opinion about a vehicle's condition compared to others of similar age and mileage.

Mechanical Health


  • Comprehensive mechanical inspection

  • Outline of any repairs or further investigation required

  • Indicative quote to carry out further testing or recommended repairs

The Mechanical Check is an excellent option if you have had the opportunity to have a good look at the car and you are happy with its general condition, but want an expert to have a good look at it mechanically. 


The Mechanical Check does not include a diagnostic scan or condition report, but it covers off all the mechanical items and offers the best value around.
