Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of any parts failures. This warranty is only valid, however, if you have your vehicle periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who records these services and stamps your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Goodyear Fountain Gate, our expert mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
- Electric/hybrid vehicles
Vehicle Inspections & RWC
If you’re thinking about selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you first have to obtain a Roadworthy Certificate, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection. This inspection ensures your vehicle is safe to be legally driven on Victorian roads, and you have to obtain your certificate before you can even advertise your vehicle for sale.
On the other hand, if you’re looking at buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. This inspection ensures you know exactly what you’re buying, and helps you avoid any nasty surprises.
Goodyear Fountain Gate can help you with RWC inspections and pre-purchase inspections.Contact us today!
