While we do perform our own safety inspection on every vehicle we sell (see below), we have many customers that want to have their own technician look at it for a more in depth inspection and additional peace of mind. We get asked all the time: “Do you mind if I take it to my own mechanic?” Our answer is “OF COURSE WE DON’T MIND!” Yes, absolutely, it is your right to be able to take the vehicle and get it inspected anywhere you like before purchasing. If you would like us to, we can even drop it off for you at an independent, third party company of your choice for an opinion on the overall condition. Inspections are paid for by the customer, and they usually range between $75 and $125 at the local repair shops. We encourage having this completed prior to purchase especially for those customers that are going to have their new vehicle shipped to them!
Quality and transparency are at the forefront of our service. Our vehicle inspection process prioritizes safety, and ensures that every vehicle on our lot meets our standards of safety, reliability, and performance. At Joe’s, our commitment to providing safe, dependable vehicles is unwavering. Do you have questions about the condition of a vehicle, or perhaps need something extra done or looked at?
