What Pedders Customers Have To Say About This Service

My vehicle was meticulously inspected whilst I could work quietly in a comfortable and clean customer area. Once inspection was complete I was supplied a comprehensive report with photos showing any concerns as well as a quote for repairs. All for $28, massive value. Thank you

Steve - Malaga, WA

Got the $28 Check done and came away feeling very informed about the state of my ute. The staff were very friendly and explained everything to me in a manner that made me feel safe, informed and trusting. I will be back to make the recommended improvements to my ute.

Dee - Ferntree Gully, Vic

Very pleased with the care and attention I received. Had a rattle in my rear suspension that turned out to be a deflated airbag. They inflated it and also pointed out where the bag was rubbing on the shock absorber. All for $28! Amazing service. Thank you

The Brakes, Steering & Suspension Check Process

Vehicle Test Drive 

As part of the Brakes, Steering & Suspension Check, our specialist Technicians will test drive the vehicle to gain a better understanding of what issues the customer may be experiencing. This allows the Technician to feel and hear for any irregular sounds, vibrations or movements the vehicle may display. 

Shock Absorber & Brake Test

Our stores are fitted with the latest Test Lane brake and suspension test technology, which is used for transparent shock absorber and brake tests as part of the Brakes, Steering and Suspension Check. By using this specialist piece of equipment we are able to check and report upon several key items of information. Where TestLane is not available or suitable, other adequate evaluation methods are used.

Under Car Inspection

The undercar inspection is carried out by our expert technicians who complete an extensive series of checks on the vehicle. This includes checking the components which are essential to maintaining safe vehicle handling on the road, including shock absorbers, bushes, mounts, control arms and steering system. 

Battery Test

As part of the Brakes, Steering and Suspension Check, we will test your vehicle's battery and report on its state of charge and overall health. If we think your car battery may let you down, we will recommend a replacement and can even install it for you.  

Brakes, Steering & Suspension Check Report

During each step of the check, the technician will document the condition of the vehicle, including capturing images and videos of any worn or damaged components.
