What's the difference between an In-store Vehicle Inspection and a Mobile Vehicle Inspection?

The In-store Vehicle Inspection is carried out at any NRMA MotorServe Car Servicing and Repairs Centre, which is a convenient choice for car owners looking to identify any warranty issues for referral back to the manufacturer. Vehicles inspected at the Car Servicing & Repairs Centre have the advantage of an inspection on the hoist with the wheels removed to ensure 4WD engagement and a thorough brake pad examination.
