Welcome to CHECK-IT Vehicle Inspections.

On-site vehicle inspections provide an innovative, blue chip service, for either the corporate opportunist with limited time, or for that retired and diligent automotive marksman who needs quality confirmation. We offer commitment without surprise to buyers at private and commercial locations throughout Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast Metro basin areas.

CIA inspectors have found 60% of checked vehicles had prior major accident damage. We offer more diagnostic facts than A class mechanics, after all, we are the only inspectors capable to write court litigation.


If you use other inspection agencies and after a crash, your insurance company finds prior incomplete accident repairs when parts are removed, they’re likely to refuse to fix your car. “DON’T Risk your future” CIA CHECK-IT!

Called at 1:00pm today and Bern was able to get the inspection done in the afternoon. He provided a very comprehensive report with images and an overall summary. He also provided some excellent general advice about maintaining the car. Well worth the money, and a really nice guy. Will definitely use again. ????

Bernie is 'Simply the Best' in my opinion and first hand experience. After reviewing different vehicle inspection businesses I came across Check-it by chance.After reviewing their services, affordable, competitive pricing and customer reviews I decided they would be the service to use.I contacted Bernie on the same day after I had inspected and test driven a used car at a car dealership to inquire when he would be available to inspect the car. Bernie advised generally on the same day.After negotiating with the dealership that I could have the vehicle inspected that same day, to their surprise and chagrin they agreed to have the vehicle available to be inspected.Given it was very short notice Bernie was available and would be there in 1.5hrs.The process to pay and provide the details of the vehicle, dealership and sales rep to Bernie was very easy to follow and was completed within 5 minutes.Bernie's report was received via email within minutes after the inspection had been completed.The report Bernie provided was very thorough, easy to read and understand (especially for someone like me who has limited knowledge about vehicles mechanically).Any vehicle faults found were highlighted with pictures and markings to show what they were.A summary of faults and repair needs were included at the conclusion of the report along with a percentage out of 100% what the vehicle condition is currently assessed to be at and the vehicle quality percentage would increase as any repairs are completed.Also noted was a summary of what the vehicle quality conditions were in comparison to a similar make, model, age and origin manufactured vehicle.The vehicle I had inspected rated 99% and was is in a pristine condition.Any questions I had about the report I called Bernie and Bernie was only happy to answer them.Based on Bernie's expertise and thorough report I was able to make a final decision about the car. The minor non mechanical faults that were found were completed by the dealership as part of the negotiation deal made bringing the vehicle up to a 100% rating. I am happy to report that I am now the new owner of the vehicle. Thank you Bernie at Check-It. I highly recommend Check-It and will use Check-It again with any future vehicle inspections.

We got our dealer-supplied Ford Mondeo inspected by Bernie just as a precaution. Bernie's report was super-helpful in confirming that the car's in great condition.Bernie also shared his observations over a call.Highly recommended, especially if you don't know much about cars and are buying a used one.Thanks Bernie! 😀

Had Bern have a look at a car i was interested in, He got there one day after calling, and gave me an extremely detailed breakdown of anything and everything about the car, showed me all the intricate body damage + let me know about any potential mechanical faults, he also gave me a call after to go through it with me and dicsuss the car. Overall im absolutley stunned at the level of professionalism, the prompt callout , and the genuine duty of care for me as a customer, and the price, was well worth it, id have him do it 5 times over just to know which car is better spending my money on....The car i enquired about was listed for $7,000, after knowing all the minor but real faults i talked the guy down to $4,500 ... saving me $2,500, and i know what condition the car is in 🙂 thanks BERN!

Just wanted to say thank you again for a very thorough inspection. Even the dealer was impressed at how thorough it was. Organised same day and very timely response. From the report, we haggled for two new front tyres and bought the car! Money well spent.

Excellent experience with Bern for my pre-purchase inspection. He fitted a booking in with very short notice, which was very much appreciated. Bern is experienced, professional, friendly and very thorough. He took the time to point out and explain defects and potential ways of rectifying them (from minor to major) and provided a very thorough report that gave me confidence in the vehicle. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Super happy with our experience and glad we chose Bern for our pre-purchase inspection. He was able to fit us in on very short notice, and even came earlier than expected. The inspection was very thorough and he took the time to walk me around the vehicle to show me all the defects (even very minor ones). The report was also emailed to me about 5 minutes after he completed the inspection. It was money worth spent in terms of giving me the confidence to purchase my first car.

Why CIA?

CHECK-IT AUSTRALIA has more vehicle body diagnostic experience than any other facility operating in the Sydney & Brisbane Metropolitan basin NSW & QLD.

CIA inspections found one in every four legally registered cars on the road have on average at least one wheel bearing loose.

Often an online REVS check won’t declare the facts and your new pride and joy will be purchased with pending incomplete or dangerous repairs.

Engine compression tests are a false sense of invalid security to the vehicle purchaser and rarely are they compared to original factory compression test results by an inspector. Additionally, engine compression can increase in either cylinder as a result of excessive carbon deposits from spark plug failure over time and falsely indicating that the other cylinders are worn.

Don’t sacrifice your safety or your family’s on those non-structural vehicle reports the other facilities offer. You deserve the best comprehensive inspection and only an assessment conducted by a CHECK-IT AUSTRALIA diagnostic technician can honestly determine the true factual condition of the vehicle.

Make sure you CHECK-IT AUSTRALIA – “You’ll be glad WE did!”

  7. Having completed your report, we process the results
    with our assessment and QUALITY PERCENTAGE RATING either on-site in
