Pre-purchase Inspections

When it’s time to purchase a new-to-you vehicle, it’s time to bring it into the auto repair specialists at Trent’s Garage for a pre-purchase inspection. Trent’s Garage serves Clive, Des Moines, and beyond and our auto mechanics love to have an opportunity to give you much needed information in the way of a pre-purchase inspection so you feel confident in making such a large purchase. 

When you bring a potential vehicle into Trent’s Garage in Clive/Des Moines, we can either do a free visual inspection to see if it’s a total lemon or we also offer one that is far more in-depth. That takes us a lot more time, so we do charge for that pre-purchase inspection, but what you receive in return is a full general health report about what’s right and wrong with the vehicle. This gives you, the buyer, a lot of negotiating power. It also lets you know what needs to be addressed right away and what items can wait until later. A pre-purchase inspection gives you a good idea of what you’re getting yourself into and a definite peace of mind. You’re in the driver's seat when you have a pre-purchase inspection in hand when negotiating your purchase deal. 

The Trent’s Garage team thoroughly enjoys providing a customer with a detailed pre-inspection report because we know it gives you power and confidence. We value our customers and we sure appreciate it when they leave us a 5-star review like this one: 

“Honest people, they don't try to scam me, have been very patient and answered all of my questions, I have been very satisfied with their work.” -- Betsy
