Here's what our happy customers say

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.

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.


Thankyou Jay.

I have read your report and it seems that, for the age of the vehicle, it is in good repair. I will reread and make notes of your suggested items to look into when the motorhome has the next scheduled service, which is to be carried out by Sydney RV before I drive it away. I will also give the photos and report to my new service centre in Northern NSW and have them remove the guards so as to have a better look at those items you were unable to see properly.

Thank you for your comprehensive inspection and subsequent report and photos. My mind is at rest knowing there are no major faults with the Motorhome before I purchase it and your Inspection was well worth the cost.

Hi Ray
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your inspection today on the Lexus I'm to soon buy. It's not often that customer service stands out these days but I have to say I'm very, very impressed.

It was very simple & easy to book the inspection and you turned up on time to view the car with me. I was surprised that you took the time to point a few things out to me and provided such a detailed written report with so many photos. It's much more than I had expected!

I now have to confidence to buy the car and I'd like to thank you personally for such a great job. It's excellent value for money indeed and much appreciated. I shall be telling many people about your service. Many thanks Ray!

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 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

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 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

Hi Arthur,

I appreciate you going and having a look at this car for me. I decided not to buy it based on your report - better safe than sorry.

Thanks a lot, you saved me from any problems in the future.


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.

Lester F

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

Thank you so much for your comprehensive report on our new car.

The dealer fixed everything you noted and I wouldn't have even realised a lot of these things were wrong with the car without your inspection.

Thank you

Kirrilly Lopez

Thank you 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

Just a note to thank you for the wonderful service you provide. Personalised service is a rare commodity these days however the staff I dealt with went out of their way to support me through this rather stressful process of buying a car sight unseen. From Karin on the phone who advised me of the initial steps I should take, & organising a same day inspection to Ray for his detailed report & phone call, I have purchased a car I have confidence will deliver. Thank you again from a very satisfied customer will definitely recommend your services.

Ray just to thank you again for assessing the Tarago so promptly on Friday. Flew down today & picked it up, I am thrilled with it drives like a dream. The owners were delightful people, the whole experience has been a breeze. Thank you for the phone call, I really appreciate the personalised service. I will be broadcasting the benefits of using MTA to one & all. Cheers Victoria Wilkie :))

Victoria Wilkie

Received with thanks. The report was very detailed and clearly set out. My thanks to you and the MTA team for making this process so seamless! I will definitely recommend your company to anyone purchasing a car in the future!

Elizabeth Kuruvilla

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!


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

Dear Arthur

Received with thanks. The report was very detailed and clearly set out. My thanks to you and the MTA team for making this process so seamless! I will definitely recommend your company to anyone purchasing a car in the future!


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

Sharon S

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.


Just wanted to say thanks mate for the comprehensive report and pics and for getting to the car same day.

Scott McGraw

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.


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

Hi Jay,

Thank you very much for your inspection and advice. We didn't know what to look for and thought it was a really good used car!

We are now looking for other car. Thank you again!

Caren Mok
