1) Description of services and payment for those services

Car Inspect Pty Ltd is a web-based booking platform matching a used car purchaser (THE CUSTOMER) to a local accredited mobile mechanic (AMM). The AMM performs a pre-purchase vehicle inspection at a location designated by the vehicle seller (THE SELLER) those details having been provided by THE CUSTOMER. The result of the inspection is submitted through the Car Inspect Pty Ltd mobile app and a report compiled with the addition of a Car History report and this report is provided to THE CUSTOMER. This report contains results of a detailed visual inspection of THE SELLER'S vehicle.

AMM's performing these reports are independent contractors of Car Inspect Pty Ltd who have been hand picked and accepted to perform the inspection for THE CUSTOMER. Each AMM is verified by Car Inspect Pty Ltd prior to engaging their contracting services. While a binding contract between THE CUSTOMER and Car Inspect Pty Ltd for the purchase of a Car Inspect Pty Ltd pre-purchase Vehicle Report occurs at the time that Car Inspect Pty Ltd accepts THE CUSTOMER'S pre-purchase vehicle request, payment will not be retained by Car Inspect Pty Ltd should the pre-purchase vehicle inspection not be performed because of the following:

  1. Unavailability of AMM - Incorrect request information (e.g., vehicle location address, Seller contact information)
  2. Vehicle no longer offered for sale
  3. Vehicle pending sale or sold
  4. Seller unwilling to permit inspection

Car Inspect Pty Ltd will only refund payments made by THE CUSTOMER in the event that the inspection is not conducted.
