Buying a car from interstate, I relied heavily on a service that was not adequately provided. Angelo attended the property to inspect the vehicle, however the mechanic on duty advised he did not complete a cylinder compression test on the turbo vehicle, ('06 forester would have required longer time based on difficulty of access) but rather gave inaccurate figures on his report. These were inaccurate as I took the vehicle elsewhere to have an inspection done and the test was performed in front of me with very different figures.
The mechanic even had the car on a hoist to make the inspection easier and he still did not carry it outread more
Picked the car apart with a fine toothed comb. Took about an hour n a bit or so and allowed me to watch and ask questions along the way. Explained in plain english what was wrong and showed me the evidence of how he came to that conclusion
Would recommend absolutely. you couldpay him twice and its still cheaper than RAA
Vehicle inspection booked without a problem, turned up on time, gave me a verbal report before leaving and promised to email written report - all good. However, since then I have not heard anything from Adelaide Vehicle Inspectors despite me sedning 3 emails, ringing twice and leaving a voicemail. My vehicle inspection was in May and 2 months on I have not yet received my written report and they are a nightmare to try and get in contact with. Would not recommend.
I wouldn't recommend this service overall.
Pros - Angelo attended and inspected the vehicle for the advertised cost. He sent me the report on the vehicle.
Cons - He promised a call once he had inspected the vehicle, this didn't happen. The information in the report was vague and I needed more information to make a decision but not only didn't he call as promised but he did not return calls or texts in the following days. Not worth the money due to the lack of information and follow up, my advice is to pay a bit extra and get an RAA inspection.
Angelo answered my calls/texts promptly and was approachable and professional. He conducted the inspection as soon as the vendor could accommodate. The report was sent within hours of him completing the inspection and it was the best $140 I ever spent. Not only was it comprehensive, it was easy to understand.The car concerned appeared 'good to go' to me - but it had a number of faults that would have been potentially dangerous. The car was destined to be my son's and would have cost $1000's to put right. Can you afford NOT to use Angelo's services?
