A 5-star friendly and... professional service was provided by Geoff on a Sunday afternoon for a second-hand car. Geoff pointed out the main faults and this was followed up by a clear and concise report that was emailed to me within a few hours of inpsection. This report allowed me to make an informed decision on not to purchase the vehicle which potentially has saved me many thousands of dollars in repair bills. Thanks Geoff! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.read more
Geoff at PDS is an absolute... professional! The report he produced far exceeded my expectation and was exactly what I required to make an informed decision on the car I was considering to purchase. Geoff also took the time to speak with me on the phone to discuss the report in detail. If you are considering a second hand vehicle, I can highly recommend Geoff and PDS Vehicle Inspections. Thank you Geoff.read more
I contacted Geoff for a... inspection in the Blue Mountains. He was the only person who serviced this area out of approx 10 people that I contacted. He was out the next day and gave a very detailed report and spoke to me at length over the phone that night to help me make an informed decision. I would recommend this service 100% for peace of mind and to know if you are making a good investment. He was so good even the vehicle seller said he would use Geoff for any future inspections. Even though the same didnt go through both parties were happy and well educated.
Thanks again mate!read more
Geoff was awesome to deal... with - thorough, informative, easy to talk to, and unbiased. I needed a car checked out interstate and felt comfortable making a decision on the sale based on Geoff's report. 5 stars from me! :)read more
I am not one to usually leave... a review, but I feel as though it is definitely worth one. I just picked up a car I purchased (sight unseen), thanks to the help of Geoff from PDS.
Geoff was incredibly thorough in his inspection and took the time to chat to me before and after about his expertise regarding the car, as well as answering any questions or concerns that I had. I felt like I was really listened to, and could trust that he was really genuine and honest about what he was saying. Now having picked up the car I can also confirm that he was spot on with what he said!!
I would not hesitate to go with PDS Vehicle Inpections again if I ever need a prepurchase inspection in the area. Worth every cent!read more
First time using PDS to... conduct a used vehicle inspection and i would definitely use them again.
My initial phone call with Geoff sounded promising and he managed to fit an inspection in for me at short notice. Report was extensive and quite more thorough than i expected, and the follow up call to discuss further put my mind at ease.
Professional, knowledgeable, and gave me the tools to help negotiate and ultimately make a decision on buying a used vehicle.
Geoff took the time to... explain the inspection and condition of the car. The report provided was very comprehensive and easy to read and plenty of photos were provided. Both the report and the phone conversation with Geoff provided me with a clear idea of the car even though I couldn't attend the inspection in person. Would happily book Geoff's services again in future.read more
Very impressed with the... service. Report goes over every aspect of the car is extremely comprehensive and transparent with included photos. Geoff himself is a chiller and will happily chat and freely give advice on what he thinks the car is worth. Using PDS Vehicle inspections gave me the confidence to know exactly what I was buying, would use this service again.read more
The actual cost is... considerably more than the indicative 'from' pricing on the PDS website for the Premium Inspection. However, I think anyone would be hard-pushed to find a vehicle inspection as thorough and insightful as which Geoff provides. He was timely, responsive and absolutely independent. He has bags of experience and knows all the tricks of the trade and the quirks of particular models of cars. It was a beautiful car, but Geoff's report uncovered that it had multiple serious defects. The report saved me some serious money and a whole heap of anguish.read more
