Car Checks

A car check or other vehicle check with Car Inspections Ireland is your ticket to motoring peace of mind.

Our nationwide network of experienced and accredited engineers is standing by to deliver you a 100-point check on any:

  • Car

  • Jeep, SUV, etc.

  • Classic car

  • Motorbike

  • Camper van or motor home

  • Light commercial vehicle (up to 3.5 tonnes)

We do three types of car checks:

  • Pre-Purchase Inspections – to help you make a decision if you’re considering buying a used vehicle

  • Post-Repair Inspections – if your vehicle’s been involved in a crash, and you need an engineer’s report before it goes back on the road

  • Dispute Resolution Inspections – if, for example, you’re in dispute with your dealer over whether a fault should be covered by warranty

Our inspections are normally carried out within 24 hours, and our engineers always travel to wherever the vehicle is located – there is no need for you to arrange to bring it to us.

Our thorough car check lasts at least 60 minutes, and larger vehicles may take even longer. Either way, you’ll get a phone call directly from our engineer as soon as it’s finished. A detailed 15-page report, with at least 30 photos included, will then be sent to you during the following 24 hours.

History and Finance Reports

With our Two Star Car Check level of inspection, full vehicle history and finance reports, covering both Ireland and the UK, are included with every car check or other vehicle check we do.
