Mobile Vehicle Inspections


An NRMA MotorServe Mobile Vehicle Inspection is a comprehensive Vehicle Inspection advising the current state of the vehicle. It is a great way to receive independent advice and peace of mind when buying a used car in a private sale or auction or when your new car warranty is coming to an end.

NRMA MotorServe Mobile Vehicle Inspections offers you:

  • The convenience and ease of coming to you Monday - Saturday, 7.30am - 5.30pm.
  • Trained and experienced Vehicle Inspectors
  • Peace of mind with independent advice - potentially saving you hundreds of dollars
  • Exclusive NRMA Member pricing and a further discount on identified repairs carried out at any NRMA MotorServe Service Centre.

What's the process?

1. Call 1300 770 116 to book an appointment. You'll initially be provided with a time window. On the day prior to the inspection (before 5.30pm) your Vehicle Inspector will confirm the exact time of your appointment.

2. Upon successful booking, you will receive a confirmation of your booking via e-mail.

3. On the day of your appointment please bring along the vehicle's registration documents. Allow approximately 1.5 hours for the Mobile Vehicle Inspection to be carried out, which includes a short test drive.

4. At the conclusion of the Mobile Vehicle Inspection, a copy of the Vehicle Inspection Report will be emailed to you.

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.
