Why choose Buy Smart Vehicle Checks?

Hi, I’m Cliff!

I offer independent vehicle inspections to help people all across Melbourne make smarter, safer, and more informed choices when buying a new car.

I have more than 25 years’ experience in car inspections, and prior to that, I was a licensed VicRoads RWC vehicle tester for a decade. I also ran a successful auto repair shop for 11 years.

Why choose an independent vehicle inspector?

There are two important reasons why you should choose an independent car inspection:

  1. Simply put, you pay less for the service than some of the larger companies (which often send out contractors)
  2. My personal reputation is on the line every time I perform an inspection – so I’m committed to providing outstanding service to each of my customers

FInd out what some of our happy – and informed – customers have to say about our car checks and inspections!

Cliff was outstanding! He went above and beyond in all aspects of the inspection. Honest and straightforward with his responses and opinion. He will tell you everything in detail and easy enough for anyone to understand.

I’d recommend him to anyone needing a great inspection for a great price. Would not hesitate to do business with him again. Top job. Thanks so much again. Absolute legend.


Simple transaction, quality information and friendly communication seem to come easily to Cliff. From what he reported and the photos shared, he is very thorough.

What’s more, he spotted a couple of problems that were great points of negotiation with the selling dealer. All fixed and transacted.


What an experience! Cliff was so easy to deal with and thorough.

The report was magnificent, easy to understand and nothing is left to chance with the level of detail. Easy payment over the phone. Could not recommend Cliff and his service more highly.

Very confident in finalising my car purchase. Wow great value for such piece of mind!


Pre-purchase Car inspections Melbourne

Buying a used car is an exciting yet challenging task.

There are so many considerations you have to make: What type of car should you buy? Where should you buy it from? What is the history like? And what’s the best way to pay for it?

These are all reasonable questions, and ones you must answer. But have you also thought about any hidden costs associated with your potential new purchase?

Do you know for sure that the car you want to buy isn’t fraught with hidden mechanical or electrical problems?

Whether the seller is hiding something or simply isn’t aware of existing problems, a new car is a large financial investment that you can’t afford to get wrong.

Fortunately, there’s a lot that Buy Smart Vehicle Checks can do to weed out the vehicles that aren’t right for you, or present hidden dangers and faults so you have a true understanding of what you’re paying for!
