Here's what our happy customers say

Thank you very much for inspecting our car for us last week. You were a terrific help. We were very impressed by how you took the time to explain everything we needed to know, show us what we needed to see with the car, and made sure that we knew everything we needed to know about the car before buying it. Your inspection was very thorough and your written report was sent to us the same day and was very clear. You also followed up with us quickly with an answer to a question that we had afterwards. You could not have done any more for us than you did.

Thank you once again for all your help, we really appreciate it.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your comprehensive inspection especially given that I needed this done urgently before I completed the paper work for this vehicle. Do I need to ask for anything to be fixed prior to collecting the vehicle?

Overall, very impressed with the same day service and very pleased that given that I am new to the country someone recommended MTA to me. I will be recommending your service to others.


I would just like to provide a testimonial on how pleased I was with the above inspection carried out by Ray Tabone. The work was very comprehensive. I was also able to speak to Ray and he provided supporting counsel to the inspection and insight into the dealership involved. This was all very useful in my purchase decision. Thank you.

Alan Taylor

Thanks very much for your help, your prompt and efficient service but most of all for saving me $4000.
You'll be the first people I call into the future, you can be assured of that.

Richard Webb

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the fantastic job that you did for me to-day .

To be able to have someone that you can trust to be honest and to be my eyes to view a car in such a professional manner and provide me with such a detailed report is awesome I can’t thank you enough.

If I had, had to travel to see the car it would have cost me my time not to mention money.
To pay for your service was worth every cent!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would also like to thank you once again for your professionalism in providing me with the information necessary to be able to make a decision regarding the purchase of a car from Interstate

John & Bernadette Holden

A very comprehensive report which assists me in making an informed decision on the vehicle purchase.

Thanks so much for carrying out the inspection on the Yaris.

I am very impressed with how quickly you carried out the inspection and with the information provided in the report

I am looking at purchasing the Yaris as my first every car!! I’m only learning to drive at the moment, so I wanted to get an inspection to make sure that the car would be safe and reliable and would suit my situation.

Thanks again and if you have any further comments please do not hesitate to contact me.


Thanks for checking out the ML63 for me on the weekend. I really appreciated the time you took chatting to me about the car. Re the paintwork you discovered I managed to dig a little deeper and find out what happened. Every panel on the car was keyed. Check out the attached pics. Thanks again for your great service.


I am extremely appreciative of ur business n professional's a magic thing u guy's r doing..just a total pleasure Ray..if I wasn't such a pain in the xxxx I would've liked to thank u guy's personally. U made it happen for me! I loved every aspect of your input..especially ur dialogue coz u convinced me to spend more to get a better car! Logical. Especially for a tight xxxx like me! Haha all the best mate.


Thankyou for your excellent and comprehensive report on the Toyota Landcruiser. Without your inspection we may have travelled to Sydney (1,000 Kilometres each way!) to inspect the vehicle and we would have been extremely disappointed in the vehicle when we got there as it looked far better in the photos that we had seen previously than it did in your extremely good photos. I will recommend your inspection service without hesitation to anybody I know in future as it is an excellent service.

Neill Leigo

Thank you very much for your comprehensive report and photos. We have decided to go ahead with the purchase of this vehicle and very much appreciate your time and input.

Jane Pelham

This probably should be a Testimonial. We had an inspection done on Sunday 21st September 2014 on a 2007 Hyundai Tuscon. We were about to buy this car for our 18 year old daughter. Price was good, car looked in good condition. Luckily we organised a MTA pre purchase inspection. Jay Corcoran, the MTA Inspector saved us from future grief by reporting the car's engine was in poor condition and the alloy wheels fitted to the car were 18" when the spare was actually a 16" wheel, explaining that we most probably would have experienced problems trying to re-register this car.

Rod Black

I had a pre purchase inspection done on a car yesterday by Tom and I'd just like to say thanks very much. He was very thorough and the report was easy to read. He pointed out some issues with the vehicle and has potentially saved me a substantial amount of money. Your services are greatly appreciated.


Quote from the baby boy “He did an awesome job please thank him”. Young man of very few words but this is high praise let me assure you. Thanks again for your assistance on the weekend.

Jackie B

Thank you so much – the report is very comprehensive and thorough and I’m very impressed by the detail including all the additional comments. On this basis, I will be going ahead with the purchase and just want to thank you so much. I didn’t even know you guys existed so I’m very happy I found you and will recommend you to my friends and family.

By the way Ray – you should know that I was originally going to get NRMA to do it but only just realised that they don’t do mobile inspections any more. NRMA gave me names of local repairers that ‘might’ do mobile inspections. Castle Hill Toyota recommended you or IVI.

Perhaps you could set up an arrangement with NRMA because a lot of people would think they are the first people to contact for mobile inspections. Better they forward enquiries to you!


I just wanted to thank you and most of all Raymond Tabone as the inspection he did for us was most helpful he did such a great job also had photo’s also the after service was great as he phoned me to make sure I understood the report which was fantastic as my son did not end up with that vehicle. Not sure where this goes on your website but I would like other people to know what a great job Raymond Tabone did for us.
