The Pre-Purchase inspection is highly recommended for many reasons. Knowledge of any issues or faults before committing to a purchase could save major repair or replacement expenses afterwards.
This is an example of a caravan I repaired. The customer bought the caravan from a dealer. After 5 months the owner noticed a wall in the caravan developed signs of water ingress: dampness and rippling of the wallboard. Sadly the dealer was not prepared to undertake the work. I identified the source of the leak, sealed it then repaired the internal wall.
The Pre-Purchase Inspection could take up to 2 hours to complete depending on the condition of the caravan. At the end of the inspection you will receive a report highlighting any issues or faults. The report is then discussed with the customer. If required, a quote for the work to correct faults or carry out repairs will be provided.
Depending on the location where the caravan to be inspected is, there could a mileage charge to cover the cost of travel.
Please note that the Pre-Purchase inspection is NOT a service.
