An invaluable service

published

I decided to use Red book Inspections after issues buying second hand cars in the past.
The report covered more then I expected and I was impressed with the competency.
I would rather spend a few hundred dollars finding out if there are issues I need to be aware of then spending thousands on repairing a vehicle I already paid a good market price for it.
I definitely recommend them

Motorcycle Inspection

published

The reason I chose RedBook to inspect a Triumph T100 was to have the bike ridden.
This was clearly communicated to the staff member at time of booking. The staff member after apologised profusely for her error. - Redbook don’t ride bikes…hmmm.
Today the bike failed the pit inspection as the tyre has a visible crack along the face of the rear tyre contrary to the report given - pretty sure a vision impaired person could do a better job!

Vehicle inspection

published

Adam C. inspected the car I was purchasing today, he did a very thorough analysis and detailed review of all the faults and details of the car, while also taking high quality photos of any defects and components of the engine, wheels, interior, exterior. Overall, very thorough analysis and I am very surprised by the great service at my first car inspection.

I should have started doing this earlier!

published

I was quite surprised how in-depth this inspection was. Jason G conducted a very careful and thorough check of my car, inside, underneath and everywhere he could shine his torch, which provided an extremely detailed report. This makes buying a car so much easier, especially for peace of mind. I would highly recommend this service to anyone buying a car!

Poor Service

published

Red book recommended a lemon car for $500000, rating it as 4/5 instead of 1/4. Wobbled steering, wobbled sunroof, balding tyre, disintegrated material in glove compartment. Redbook refused to help to recover my money or to repair the car

Jason conducted a thorough Inspection on the Vehicle we were intending to our base.

I commend him and recommend his detailed, knowledgeable reviews.

Great service. Worth the costs.

Buying a 2nd hand card can be challenging, there are many items to look at. RedBook Inspection gives you the extra confidence to know what you are buying is worth what you are paying and it is in good condition.

Garry and Emal are the professional and do the inspection based on the guidelines and explaining the process. Very quick and fast. But it is difficult to find out the inspection site.

This is a review for Redbook Inspections. Forgot them and use MTA.

published

We booked redbook in and they let us down badly. MTA came out the day after I called them. Both the seller and the buyer waited around for two days!!! Not good when you are trying to buy a car.

Hi Hitesh,
Thanks for getting in touch.
If the damage is larger in size than a credit card, it will typically cause a failure of the inspection.
