BMW and MINI's are both reliable and desirable cars if well maintained. However, buying a used car can be a risky business because you may find that previous owners have cut corners or deferred maintenance. While it may still not be a bad car, you could have an expensive first year. We offer highly regarded BMW & Mini pre-purchase inspections for all models to give you as much peace of mind as possible as you go through this important purchase.
With our BMW & MINI pre-purchase inspections identifying any issues, you can ask to have them resolved as part of the transaction, negotiate a lower price or, in extreme cases, walk away from the car. In our experience, most dealers involved in selling BMW's have good intentions and, if a fault is discovered, they will put it right without hesitation. The cost of our BMW & MINI pre-purchase inspections will, in most cases, be more than covered by money saved on repairs post purchase.
We carry out a 100 point checklist which coincides with main dealer standards. The cost of this service is £180 + VAT (up to 25 mile radius, from Braintree, Essex - There is a small additional charge for fuel for those further afield).

All pre-inspections are carried out by highly qualified and experienced BMW / Mini specialist mobile mechanics.
