This is the 2nd car that i have had Klavs look at. The first one I bought but the 2nd car I have decided against, based upon his inspection, finding that more than £900 needed to be spent, along with some niggling electrical issues that would be difficult to satisfacorily resolve. I would not hesitate to spend the money to have one of these inspections done and I am going to book another on a different vehicle in the next 24 hours. Thanks, Clare

Really pleased I chose Carexamer. Klavs was brilliant! He was communicative and on time. He presented an extensive report that was clear and easy to understand. He found a few issues that the dealership were happy to fix saving me £100s. I would highly recommend.

Brilliant thanks a lot Klavs, super detailed and informative. I'll now go back to the dealer and negotiate around the problems you highlighted in your report.

Klaus did a great job on a post-purchase inspection for us. He arrived on time and was very communicative, happy to talk about what we were looking to find out about the vehicle, explain his findings and take the time to do things very, very thoroughly. We appreciated his flexibility to take one of us with him on the test drive and the patience to go over the fine points of his examination. Klaus identified some key information that we would never have spotted without his help and overall gave us the peace of mind we were looking for in respect of the vehicle. The written report was extremely detailed and useful as well. I had reviewed offers from other providers of similar services and CarExamer came up top in every desktop comparison of price and features. I can honestly say that the experience lived up to expectation in every way. Thanks again Klaus!

Great experience with Klavs. Very comprehensive review and useful report. Ultimately I decided not to buy the vehicle as a result of the report - it has no doubt saved me a lot of trouble and expense. Thank you
