Damages that compromise the reliability and safety of the vehicles are fixed. We also check interior equipments and tools and verify that everything is functioning correctly.

The steering and brake systems are vital for the safety of the vehicle. This is why a thorough and detailed check is carried out and any necessary repairs are performed to provide safe and reliable driving.
We make sure that all elements of the electrical system such as the battery, lights, wipers, switches and electrical controls are working. We recondition or substitute any element judged problematic for proper operation of the vehicle.
CHASSIS AND UNDERNEATH
All our vehicles are put up on ramps to check for rust, corrosion, torn boots and joints and any leak of water,oil, or fuel. Our ramps are equipped with lighting specially designed to avoid overlooking any problem.
All our vehicles are thoroughly washed before we inspect the exterior and chassis to make sure we do not overlook any damage or problem.
We measure the tyres tread depth for all tyres and replace them when judged necessary. Tyres are also checked for cracks and any damages on the sidewall, wheel , wheel nuts and bolts.
We do our best to make the interior of each vehicle as clean as possible.
