Why Choose a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

Investing in a pre-purchase inspection is a wise decision that can save you from future frustration and financial burdens. When buying a used vehicle, it’s natural to be concerned about its condition, functionality, and safety features.

By allowing our qualified technicians to examine the vehicle carefully, you can gain peace of mind and make a well-informed purchase decision.

Our Inspection Process

At Econolube, we have designed a comprehensive inspection process that covers all aspects of a vehicle, including mechanical, cosmetic, and safety issues. Our technicians diligently follow this process to ensure no stone is left unturned.

Mechanical Inspection

Our skilled technicians will assess the vehicle’s mechanical components to ensure that they are in optimal condition.

This inspection thoroughly examines the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, exhaust system, and other essential parts. We’ll identify any mechanical issues and inform you of their potential risks or future expenses.

Cosmetic Inspection

A vehicle’s aesthetics significantly affect its overall value and appeal. Our inspection will evaluate the cosmetic condition of the vehicle, including the exterior paint, body panels, lights, and interior upholstery.

We’ll document any cosmetic damage or wear and tear, giving you a complete picture of the vehicle’s exterior and interior condition.

Safety Inspection

Safety should be your priority when purchasing a vehicle; our inspection process emphasizes this aspect. Our technicians will inspect the vehicle’s safety features, including airbags, seat belts, steering system, tires, and lighting system.

We’ll ensure that these crucial components meet the required safety standards, keeping you and your loved ones safe on the road.

Investigation of Previous Damage

When buying a used vehicle, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of any previous damage it may have sustained. Our technicians will thoroughly investigate the vehicle’s history and inspect for any signs of previous accidents or repairs.

By carefully examining the structure and paintwork, we can accurately assess the vehicle’s past and whether it has been adequately repaired.

Peace of Mind

Knowing that a certified professional has thoroughly inspected the vehicle of your choice, identified any existing issues, and evaluated its overall condition will provide you with the peace of mind you need when making such a significant investment.

Negotiation Power

Our inspection findings can give you leverage when negotiating the price with the seller. With detailed knowledge about the vehicle’s condition, you can confidently discuss any required repairs and their impact on the purchase price.

Identifying existing or potential issues before purchase lets you plan for necessary repairs or maintenance expenses. By understanding what lies beneath the surface, you can avoid being caught off guard by unexpected costs down the road.

My wife and I have been bringing our vehicle here for oil changes, we recently brought it in for a brake service. The mechanics were knowledgeable and the staff were friendly. Shuttle service was efficient and well communicated with text notifications. The owner was also running the front of the mechanic shop as it is a family run business. We had a great conversation and he was very friendly. Would recommend their services - support local!

My thanks to Kurt at the 200 183 highway 16a location in spruce grove. I discovered a leaking oil filter that was in stalled by my chev dealership. I was heading out hunting at the time but apparently that dealership didn’t have the 5 min to help me out. I pulled into the the econolube, explained the situation and “bam” Done at very reasonable price. Not to mention the pleasant attitude and willingness to help. Thanks again Kurt. Sorry if the spelling of your name is incorrect.

My car needed some repairs, and based on my past excellent experiences with Econolube for oil changes and tire service, I booked it in with them for mechanical service this time. I've had 2 appointments over the last 2 weeks to get everything fixed, and they've been fantastic to deal with. Booking the appointments has been super easy, communication with Reuben before and during the service has been great, and pricing is incredibly reasonable. They do not try to upsell on things that don't actually need to be done, and they were willing to work with me on a timeline to get everything fixed, including swapping over winter tires today. They even offered a shuttle service to get me back home after dropping my vehicle off. Thank you Paul, Reuben, and Vanessa for an excellent experience! I will definitely be back for any future mechanic needs.

By far the nicest most helpful staff out there. Owner was on the floor getting in just as well as everyone else, highly recommend this family run business. Edit, on my 3rd different vehicle and countless time of coming to these guys and I stand behind my previous statement. I’d review these guys and give top ratings every single time If google would let me. Cannot recommend enough, use local it is infinitely better
