The Underside and Most Hidden Parts of a Car Are the First Place to Check
Usually, when people think of rust on a car, the first thing they do is check the outside without worrying about what happens under it. Many times, road salt and other contaminants encourage corrosion in our cars.
This means that dirty or salty water trapped somewhere in our car's body makes that spot rust faster. That's why cars in climates, where salt is used in winter, are more prone to rot.
We suggest that your vehicle should be inspected every year to check for corrosion damage, especially however a thorough Vehicle Inspection is advised before purchase as often buyers forget about checking less visible areas.

BODYWORK - or more in this case Body Panel Alignment. Would you be checking for these things when buying a vehicle? Sure, we do.
As much is bad panel alignment could seem to be a cosmetic issue for some, most people does not realise that this is an indication of bad previous body repairs or/and a sign that vehicle could have been involved in an accident.
Moreover, bed seams and cracks at joints or structure of the vehicle weakens the chassis and can cause water leaks which in effect can contribute to further issues like damage to onboard control units and so on.
Poorly adjusted Boot Lid for example can allow Boot Seal to leak rain water into the Cargo Well where most of modern vehicles have installed Batteries and Electronic Components. If this is the case the obvious signs my not be seen immediately after purchase.
As much as we cannot water test the vehicle for you, we will always look for the often 'missed' or hidden indicators that something may not be just as it should be...

TYRES – so why are we checking them so thoroughly during our inspections?
It comes without saying that worn tires can be a costly surprise but identifying the type of tyre wear correctly allows us to predict potential issues with the vehicle.
Today we have inspected a car which had a wear to the outer edge on both front tires. This type wear is due to wheel misalignment, but it may also be caused by the suspension moving out of its proper position. Other parts like these may be the reason too:
• Worn ball joints - front tires wear on outside edge, as well as slight feathering closer to the centre, are the first signs of wearing out and/or a failing ball joint.
• Sagging springs - a constant load weakens the springs, making them lose arch (leaf spring) or/and height (coil spring).
• A bent strut or spindle - the struts determines the camber position of the suspension, and if they’re bent, the alignment also changes. Consequentially, front tires will wear on outside edge or the inside one, depending on the change.
• Out-of-position strut mount - The strut tower (or mount) may move out of position due to age, as the metal rusts and weakens.
• Worn out control arm bushings - Bushings act like cartilage between suspension parts, and when it’s worn out, the control arm moves out of its proper position, causing wheel misalignment.
Our inspections will not only help you save money on potential repairs but also keep you and your family safe on the road.

DRIVETRAIN - today we have found a CV (Constant Velocity) Joint Boot split on a vehicle we were inspecting for one of our customers. A CV joint is packed with a special grease and sealed tight with the rubber boot.
A CV joint doesn’t need any maintenance and should last quite long if vehicle has been smoothly driven. But when the protective boot cracks or gets damaged grease comes out and moisture and dirt get in casing the CV joint to eventually fall apart (due to lack of lubrication).
First signs of wear are clicking noises at low speeds more notable when turning - they can be harder to note to less experienced drivers.
If a split boot is caught early, simply replacing the boot and repacking the CV joint with a fresh grease is all that is usually needed. This is much cheaper than replacing the whole CV joint or drive shaft.
If missed when buying, it will be a very expensive surprise shortly after; not mentioning the safety aspects and possibility of breaking down (as broken shaft will immobilise the vehicle).

BRAKES - Single most important part of your vehicle. Did you have them checked last time you were buying a vehicle?
Do you know what to look out for?
This example of uneven wear to both discs and pads was caused by lack of maintenance, incorrect parts (or wrongly fitted) or a faulty Brake Caliper.
Reduced efficiency and potentially hazardous, were highlighted to potential owner during our inspection saving the new owner hundreds of £’s (and maybe even his life)...
