Classic Rolls Royce

5
I commissioned Matt to inspect a classic Rolls Royce Corniche for me. He was very professional, the inspection was arranged very quickly and carried out thoroughly. The report was e-mailed to me same day after a phone call with him explain his findings, which was very helpful.
I would recommend the company to anyone needing a vehicle inspected.

Vehicle inspection, would highly recommend

5
I wanted to purchase a vehicle and know nothing about cars, therefore I decided to go for an independent inspection. Matt at south west vehicles was fantastic from the first call. He was really flexible around the time(fitting it in around the sellers work). As well as the very detailed report, the phone calls to talk it through were so valuable. Would highly recommend!

Great service - found an oil issue in a supposedly pre-inspected car [by an online car shop]

5
Definitely recommend SWVI. Decent price and found a significant issue that an online retailer's mechanics had missed during their supposed 300 point pre-sale-inspection [and that they also missed during a service that they did]. Getting this inspection done saved us money in the long run, for sure.
