Covering the Greater Sydney Metropolitan Area - Western, Eastern, Southern Suburbs & Northern Beaches

Suffice to say that an IVI vehicle inspection in the Greater Sydney and Northern Beaches is a truly comprehensive rundown of a car.

Once the basic inspection has been completed, we we'll do a road test to get a sense for how the car feels on the road.

Some things—such as engine performance, transmission function, etc.—are difficult to assess when a car is in stationary position, so taking a car for a test drive can help us to learn a lot.


At Independent Vehicle Inspections, we always stand beside the work we do. It is our mission to help our customers make the best and most informed purchasing decisions possible, when it comes to buying used cars.

For that reason, we inspect every single component of a car closely before giving a customer advice on whether or not to purchase it.

We also don't pull our punches with the advice we give. On the contrary, IVI's inspectors examine vehicles for our customers in the same way they would examine vehicles for themselves. If a customer hires us for a car inspection in Sydney, that person can trust our word on whether or not the vehicle is worth buying.

Why? Simply because the advice we give our customers is the same advice we would give to family members. If we ourselves wouldn't be comfortable buying the car, then we won't advise you to do so either.
Once the entire inspection and test drive process is complete, IVI gives customers a full written report on the vehicle. The report includes an overall vehicle rating, which essentially tells the customer whether or not a car is worth buying.

The bottom line is this: don't purchase a new car without knowing everything you can about it. The inspection is a pivotal part to any used car purchase—part of the reason that our motto is...

'Before you buy, Call IVI!'
