Pre-Purchase Inspections (Caravans, Motorhomes & Horse Trucks)

Are You Considering Purchasing a Motorhome, Caravan or Horse Truck?

Before making a purchase, conducting a pre-purchase inspection is a great idea to ensure you make a good decision and eliminate surprises down the road. At CaraCare, we understand the importance of thorough inspections to help protect your investment and provide peace of mind.

30 Years of Experience

We specialise in pre-purchase inspections for motorhomes and caravans. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, we have developed a comprehensive inspection process "CARACHECK" that covers the key aspects of the vehicle, including exterior structural components through to the interior appliances. For motorhomes, we can also include a comprehensive mechanical check.

Exterior Condition

We will assess the exterior's overall condition, including the floor, body, paint, windows, doors, and roof. We aim to identify any signs of damage, leaks, or structural issues. For example, floor condition is a key indicator of leaks (rotten materials), and roofs are prone to water ingress and leakage.

Checking roof seals and the quality of existing sealants is part of the CARACHECK process.

Interior Condition

Our inspection extends to the vehicle's interior, where we inspect the living area, kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping quarters. We will check for any signs of wear and tear, water damage, mould, or malfunctioning appliances, plumbing and wiring.

Interior moisture tests are a key part of the interior check.

 Motorhome Mechanical Inspection

As an add-on service, this inspection comprises the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, electrical systems, and a test drive to assess the vehicle's performance on the road.

Report and Findings

Once the inspection is complete, we will provide you with a detailed report (including photos) that outlines our findings. This report will give you a good understanding of the vehicle's condition and any necessary repairs or maintenance that we think might be required.

CARACHECK inspections are designed to identify any existing or potential issues that may affect the vehicle's performance, safety, and value.

Conflicts of Interest

It is important to note that our pre-purchase inspections are unbiased and objective. We remove any conflict of interest by not accepting appraisals where we have any affiliation with the sellers or manufacturers, ensuring that our assessments are solely based on the vehicle's condition and your best interests.

At CaraCare, we believe in transparency and customer satisfaction. We aim to empower you with the knowledge and information needed to make an informed decision. Whether you are purchasing a motorhome, caravan or horse truck, our pre-purchase CARACHECK inspections are an essential step in the pre-purchase/buying process.
