Beachwheels Inspection Station

Beachwheels vehicle inspectors conduct the vehicle inspections on site and following their thorough assessment of your vehicle, discuss their findings with you. Following this, Beachwheels provides you with a formalised report which itemises our findings and recommendations.

Our reports provide a comprehensive review of your motor vehicle including extensive testing of body and mechanical conditions.
