    Looking to buy a car privately - is there a service that will come and check a car for you?

    As above.

    Sister in Law is looking for her first car but really we need someone to check it over.
    The car she has seen now is not near enough for us to take to our local garage so wondered if there is such a service that will come out to the car (in South London)
    I am sure I remember the AA or RAC used to do it and they offered some kind of guarantee on the inspection, anyone know about it?

    Thanks very much x

    Thank you!

    That's exactly what I was thinking of - couldnt find it :oops:

    More pricey than we were expecting though, the car only costs £1500 - I wouldn't mind paying it on a more expensive car.

    Anyone know anything cheaper?

    One of the cheapest ways to have the working bits of a car ( as recommended by motoring journalists) looked at is to pay for it to go through the MoT test. If you hunt around these are £25 upwards, and you get a written report on it's condition.
    Also try a local garage, pay for an hour's labour and they will look over the car for you. obviously you won't get a written report but it will be at least 1/3 of the price of the AA/RAC

    Thanks, I was considering a local garage but would rather use the one I have used for years which is local to me, may have to go down this route though I guess :thumbsup:
