Pre-Purchase Inspection

Shopping for a used car can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to make the process as easy on you as possible. Give us a call and we’ll get you in within 24 hours. We’ll even help you get the car to us by picking it up or providing you with a free loaner car.

The Inspection

There’s often a sense of urgency when you find a used vehicle you’re interested in purchasing. But, having an inspection done before purchasing, can save you a lot of money in the long run. Bring the vehicle to us and we’ll get you in within 24 hours and oftentimes even sooner. We’re happy to inspect any make and model and make every effort to do it the same day.

An added bonus: The vehicle will be washed and vacuumed before it leaves our shop.

The Report

Our reports include an itemized list of comments and/or concerns. If work is needed, we prioritize the list of repairs and provide precise estimates so that you can make an informed buying decision. We work for you and information from the inspection report is yours to do with whatever suits your needs.

Getting Here

We offer a number of ways to help get the vehicle to us for inspection. For example, we can:

  • Pick up the car and bring it to our shop
  • Pick you up and drop you off

While You Wait

Inspections take about 2.5-3 hours. You’re welcome to wait in our comfortable waiting area where we offer free Wi-Fi, coffee and a workspace. But, we understand this isn’t always convenient. We’re glad to drop you off and pick you up if there’s somewhere you’d like to be. Alternatively, you can borrow one of our free loaner cars or take a take a short walk and explore downtown Bellingham.

Cost

The basic fee is $125 + tax.

Note to Sellers

We are a licensed used car dealership. While a prospective buyer has your car here for a pre-purchase inspection, we will never suggest or discuss cars we have for sale.
