Vehicle inspection

Vehicle inspection


An NRMA vehicle inspection is an investigation into the state of your vehicle. At the end of the vehicle inspection, we'll give you a comprehensive report detailing the condition of almost every mechanical aspect of your car - inside and out. 

Why do I need a vehicle inspection?

An NRMA vehicle inspection is a great way to give yourself peace of mind when buying a used car in a private or auction situation. It can also be useful for finance company inspections.

Some customers choose to use our vehicle inspection to provide independent advice when their car is nearing the end of its new car warranty period. The detailed vehicle inspection report is a potential money-saver. It gives you information so you can address any issues with the car while it is still under warranty with the dealership.
