Top reasons why used car inspection is important - Coming Soon in UAE
2 October 2019

Finding pre-owned cars in Abu Dhabi is quite easy. The difficult part is finding the right one for you.

After scouring through a number of cars, when you find the right car at a great price the feeling is of elation. But before rushing into the decision, having it thoroughly inspected by a certified professional is something you should consider, both as a buyer and seller. Most buyers and sellers rarely look under the hood closely before making that final decision to buy a pre-owned car or put their car on the market.

However, a pre-owned car has been driven, you just don’t know how by the previous owner. Just like any other machinery, cars need to be maintained, repaired and inspected on a regular basis to make sure that everything is working as it is supposed to and that there are no major issues that could pose as a safety hazard further down the line. Most people don’t know how to do a thorough car inspection by themselves; hence it is best to make a wise decision and get a reliable dealer to do the inspection. A lot of reliable dealerships like Carswitch have their own professionals who will inspect the cars for buyers and sellers. However, if you want to go with one of your own, that should not be an issue.

A full car inspection typically includes fluid checks like oil, brake fluid, coolant, and windshield wiper fluid. They check the tyre pressure and tread. The brakes are examined. They check for any battery issues and they check the filter. The certified mechanic will determine the safety and mechanical condition of the car. A car inspection can pinpoint existing conditions or can highlight issues that may arise in the future. If you are looking to buy a pre-owned vehicle, a professional can easily pinpoint to previous damages in the vehicle. These details could be used as leverage to negotiate for a better price when buying a car.

Different parts of the vehicle are prone to the regular wear and tear, as a seller a certified professional will help diagnose the areas the need repairs or replacements. It is best to take care of this before any failure.

The professionals at Carswitch will be able to identify weaknesses in the car and how it can affect the car in the future should you buy it.

If you are looking at cars for sale in Sharjah, most dealers who deal with certified pre-owned cars will provide a warranty on the car. That way should you face any issues with the car within the warranty period you can always take it back to the dealer. An inspection by a certified professional gives a seller peace of mind and confidence when putting the car up to sale and it gives a buyer more confidence in the vehicle.

With pre-owned vehicles what you see is not always what you get.  The optics can trick you into thinking you are making a great buy when in fact it could lead to several repairs and replacements down the line that can land up costing you dearly. However, with cars that have been certified, there is a certain level of transparency which gives you all the details of the car. If any repairs have been undertaken or it if has been involved in any collisions. However well the exteriors of the car may have been painted and repaired, a professional will be able to tell the damage done to the chassis of the vehicle.

If you’re a seller, ensure that you find a mechanic you is a certified professional and can provide you with an inspection certificate.
