Buying a classic or modern used car? Don't make a mistake - contact the expert in classic car inspection before parting with your money


Buying any used car is generally the next most important purchase after buying your home and the pitfalls can be just as hazardous as those encountered when buying bricks and mortar.


Each year, more than 180,000 cars are written off by insurance companies yet some of these cars get back into the marketplace - sometimes with inferior repairs. Your money is hard-earned and could prove easy to lose when buying a vehicle without first having it inspected by an expert.
