Book a Car Check

Car Inspections Ireland is your ticket to stress-free motoring when buying a used car or other vehicle. We have a nationwide network of experienced and fully accredited engineers standing by, ready to deliver you a 100-point check on any vehicle you are thinking of buying. We’ll spot any defects or evidence of crashes, clocking, or cloning, and we’ll deliver you a comprehensive report on all our findings – usually within just 48 hours.

We’ll also provide a full vehicle history report and finance report – all for just €185.
That’s the best price anywhere in Ireland for such a comprehensive check by expert industry engineers.


What we do

We will carry out our thorough 100-point inspection on any car, SUV, motorbike, classic car, camper van, motor home, or light commercial goods vehicle for sale. Most inspections are conducted within 24 hours of booking, and all are complete within 48 hours.

We will telephone you immediately afterwards with our main findings. The following day, we will supply you with a detailed report of approximately 15 pages (including at least 30 photographs) on the vehicle you are thinking of buying.

This is particularly useful if you’re interested in a car you’ve seen advertised online, but aren’t close enough to the seller to easily travel to see it yourself. By having one of our engineers check it out first, you’ll know whether your trip might be worthwhile.

We will also supply vehicle history and finance checks, and will advise on any minor faults you should ask to have rectified before making a purchase. In a worst-case scenario, if we find major problems, we will advise you to walk away from a deal.

We can also carry out inspections for dispute resolutions – for example, if you are in dispute with a dealer over a vehicle you’ve already purchased, and what is or isn’t covered by a warranty.


Where we do it

We travel to carry out all inspections wherever the vehicle is located. There is no need for you to arrange to have it brought to us.
