Independent technical inspection of used vehicles and classic cars at any location in the Netherlands

Do you have the intention to buy a used car, modern classic car, or classic car that is located in the Netherlands? Save yourself a lot of time and money and arrange an independent technical inspection before you start a long journey. I am an independent expert, not connected to any dealership or workshop, and I approve cars all over the Netherlands. Professional, quick and at your service.
Within a few days after your request, I will check the car and draw up a comprehensive report you will receive by e-mail. If you wish, I can send you detailed pictures and discuss the results of the check over the phone or online chat.

The technical vehicle inspection includes the following aspects:

  • Availability of vehicle board documents, registration documents, maintenance records, car history
  • Mileage, status of the annual roadworthiness test (apk, like MOT, TÜV or CT)
  • Bodywork, paint thickness, damages, scratches, lights, windows
  • Chassis, suspension, subframe, shock absorbers, exhaust system, tyres (visual inspection using car lift)
  • Engine, transmission, clutch, steering, brakes, battery (visual inspection only)
  • Electrical components, air conditioning, accessories, audio and/or navigation system
  • Overall condition of interior and upholstery
  • Test drive (if possible)
  • In the case of a restored classic car: quality of former restorations

You will receive a detailed report, written in English or Dutch as per your request, and at least 40 high-resolution photographs of the inspection by e-mail. If you prefer, I can use your personal  inspection report format.
