Very Helpful: A Pre-Delivery Inspection Checklist For Used and New Car

: So, you’ve done the test drive. You’ve bargained over the price. You’ve found the best car finance deal also. And now it’s the time to drive out your new car from the dealer’s yard. But before you leave the showroom, you must do some important checks to ensure that your new car is unblemished.

Pre-Registration Inspection

Before you begin, inform your dealer that you want to do a pre-registration check. A pre-registration inspection is performed at dealer’s yard before the registration of the car on your name. You can request for a different unit, if you notice any faults or problems at this stage. Once registered in your name, it is almost impossible that dealer will replace that unit in case any defects are found.


We strongly suggest you to take the delivery of your vehicle in the daylight hours. After the sunlight fades it becomes difficult to spot minor faults and changes in color shades.

Pre-Delivery Inspection

Pre-Delivery inspection is made at the showroom when you are taking delivery. This time make sure that everything matches the pre-registration inspection checklist and all the accessories you were promised have been fitted. You should adequately test all the accessories and features before leaving the showroom with the car.
