“Joke”

Written on: 21/11/2015 by mumblin (1 review written)

Recently had an mvi inspector check my car for a customer. The guy checking out the car didn't know anything about it, he didn't drive it and did little more than take lots of pics to gloss up the report no doubt. I understand people fall mostly for their sales pitch and quick turnaround. It's not worth it. I've had AA and RAC checks done to cars I've sold in the past and they are far superior. I believe there may be other independent vehicle inspectors who could do a better job and would… Read Full Review

Mviuk's Response to mumblin's Review

Same old story of a dealer with a bad vehicle - Our reports are fair and comprehensive. If your stock is good then our report will be good it really is as simple as that!

“Peace of mind - cheaper than the big boys”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by Aaliyah476 (1 review written)

I used these guys in order to save money compared to the AA and RAC. The service was probably superior in that they were able to offer an inspection the following day and report back promptly. The result was both peace of mind in that they recommended the purchase and negotiating power with the dealers in that they agreed to address some minor faults which the inspection identified. I was able to simply then drive away without pretending I knew what to look out for and with complete peace of… Read Full Review

“Fantastic service!”

Written on: 05/12/2013 by Jeanthelibraryqueen (1 review written)

I came across MVIUK when I was buying an 07 Mercedes SLK200. I know nothing about cars, and was impressed with their website. I then came to this website, and was impressed with the reviews here - including their reasoned response to a poor review! Communications were very good, and the car was inspected within 48 hours of me booking the inspection. Si contacted me by phone that afternoon, and gave me a full verbal report, explaining all the technical parts clearly. The report was good, and… Read Full Review

“Absolute Life savers!!”

Written on: 26/09/2012 by Missdimension (1 review written)

The review was fantastic. Lengthy and details, the guys communicated well with both myself and the seller. I was sent the details report quite quickly as I was due to purchase the heap of junk. The car had many hidden problems which could have potentially been dangerous and costly. This particular car was rubbish, however, for peace of mind and savings of potentially 1000's of ££££ I am willing to look again and have another inspection. I really appreciate this kind of service. Thank… Read Full Review

“Now thats what I call a good service!”

Written on: 06/06/2012

Frustratingly I am an engineer but I just did not have the time to view this car prior to purchase as I am some 120 miles away. I used Mvi as my 'eyes and ears' and lets face it my time and fuel costs were well worth the fee alone. Well, I was more than impressed with the overall package and there were numerous faults shown although as stated by Mvi a lot of them were to be expected on a used car which was fine by me and a few other bits were dealt with by the seller. This service in my opinion… Read Full Review

“Saved Me £400 and Peace of Mind”

Written on: 29/05/2012 by Smithy99 (1 review written)

Bought the car from over 400 miles away from an established dealer but Matt still found some fault that the dealer fixed. Matt did a thorough check or should I say Ortopsy with 100 pictures taken, some which I didn't recognise. The Inspector found scratches which I have yet to discover. Cheaper than the AA without the hard sell of a more expensive product. Inspection carried out the day after with report e mailed and follow up call at 7pm the same day… Read Full Review

“Tested a potential vehicle purchase for me”

Written on: 17/05/2012 by Boshly (1 review written)

Easy to deal with, prompt response, great communication followed by a clear and concise report with plenty of photos. On top of that price was competitive. Really cant say any more than that. They did what they said they'd do, did it well and did it quickly! I'm one very satisfied customer… Read Full Review

“A scam masquerading as a service..”

Written on: 14/05/2012

Well, there's a lot of people saying how wonderful they are in faulting cars, but in the interests of balance, try a dealers view of these people...A customer who had agreed to buy a full franchised historied car from us employed this lot to inspect it...When they showed up I had a quick chat with them about their business and was very suprised to hear them say that they were looking to "volumise" their business from each instruction and hope to get 3 or 4 inspections (and fees) out of each of… Read Full Review

Mikemviuk's Comment

Written on: 25/05/2012

As Co-owner of MViUK it worries me to have feedback such as this. The one thing we do not and never will do is to dream up faults to try and get more than one inspection out of one buyer. We are busy enough and our GENUINE reviews say it all. This particular vehicle had MAJORITY PAINTWORK and the bonnet had been removed for what reason we do not know. Furthermore, we did not put in the report that it had suffered accident damage as the dealer suggests. The dealer is correct that we did not drive this MB and that was because the fuel guage was well beyond empty and the computer was showing 0 mile range. The dealer had at least 24 hours notice that we would be inspecting this vehicle and could and should of had it ready for us. The oil leak was written up in the report as 'Significant fluid leak which I believe is from the steering rack, I cannot be certain due to lack of visual access to this area but this definately needs further investigation'. Yes, we back up every report with numerous photographs and because this buyer was in Australia we did more than usual. In fact, we did not advise the buyer NOT to buy this vehicle, we just reported the findings which is what we are paid to do.

Oooh, touchy!! Well at least I agree, make you're own mind up up...Love the comments....Look underneath any 6 year old, 50,000 mile car (hardly "low mileage", that's why it was £30,000 less than a new one) and it's not pretty when you put it under a microscope with the sole intention of terrifying people!! The brakes are the best pictures....They're brand new! With surface corrosion that occurs after any car is parked for a week, that's why they put put wax on new cars!! If it had been actually driven it would have come off in 100 yards...And "the leak"' is nothing of the kind, stick your head under your own car and it'll look like that, if not much worse...I've made my point and totally agree, have at look at the pictures and I think they'll support me to anyone who has any experience of owning and buying a used car...end of subject :)

Written on: 29/05/2012

We take great pride in what we do - We are very realistic in our inspections and understand that cars do have issues and advise accordingly as most good dealers will look after their customers putting defects right. Take a look at the photos and decide for yourself bearing in mind that this is a low mileage, prestige Mercedes. But, I am sure the 'Anonomous Reviewer' will come back and state that the pictures are not of his car or have been 'doctored'. Truth hurts....... Here they are:

Complete rubbish...I offered to put some diesel in it to which their response was "Don't bother we only spin 'em round the block" And they didn't even do that!! The Merc dealer didn't mention ANY oil leaks, because there were none...There was the tiniest bit of residue on a gaiter that ANY 5 year old car will have, that was then photographed to death, and portrayed as a catastrophe in the report...

Here's the closing comments on the report :-

"We have taken lots of photographs of the vehicle for you detailing the faults found, In my
opinion I would look elsewhere for this type of vehicle. The vehicle itself is not the standard I
would expect with regards to the paintwork and the dealer did not inspire me with confidence"

Hmmm...that's objective isn't it....KERCHING!!! Next fee please....

If you can't take some criticism, then you shouldn't dish it out with subjective prejudicial nonsense I'm afraid...:)

“Great safety net!”

Written on: 14/04/2012

As the car I was interested in was a long way away I asked MVI to check the vehicle which they did immediately. I was really happy with their report, so be aware of any 'private' sale in Salford where a lady is running clocked cars. Worth the money to avoid the dodgy trader. … Read Full Review

“Well worth the money Highly recommended ”

Written on: 11/04/2012

I highly recommend MVIUK. My brother used them first and he has now bought a top quality Range Rover vehicle with MVIUK's help. Today MVIUK inspected a vehicle which was a damaged repaired which the seller classed as having had a minor bump. On inspection the vehicle has suffered substantial damage and has been repaired so poorly that it will now be extremely difficult to rectify. I could have bought a load of problems and suffered the pain and cost of trying to fix the impossible. Thank you… Read Full Review

“A penny spent turned into a pound saved”

Written on: 29/01/2012 by RodHarron (1 review written)

The publicity photos showed a very clean looking automobile, the price was competitive, the mileage low for it's age, and it had all the extras we could possibly want. A current MOT and just two owners from new. The dealer attentive and informative. "Yes sir" the car has bills and service record, runs beautifully and we just reduced the price. We agreed to buy the car, unfortunately being far away and not able to look at the vehicle personally, made an inspection a condition of purchase… Read Full Review

“A Close shave”

Written on: 26/01/2012 by Celticmad (1 review written)

Thankyou Mike & Matt, Having just about made my mind up to buy a car from a Local dealer, I called Mviuk in to have a look "just incase". They carried out an inspection within a day of asking and Not only found out that the service record on the vehicle had been "made up", But the mileage had been tampered with and was not a true reading. The inspection itself was a very thorough one which included stacks of good quality Photos of areas in question around, under and inside the car which… Read Full Review

“Dream Car was a dud!”

Written on: 16/12/2011 by RehmanKhan03 (1 review written)

I picked these guys because they were good on price and were also going to check the car out for me the next day. They were not charging extra because the car I wanted checked was a BMW 330d whereas other companies will charge on engine size as well. I found MVIUK to be very courteous on the phone and they communicated with me in an efficient way. Which is what you want when buying a car. I thought I had found my dream car, a BMW 330D, 2006 with 62k on the clock advertised on Autotrader… Read Full Review

“Very accommodating, great value and ecellent service”

Written on: 18/11/2011 by tboo009 (1 review written)

Matt and Mike were absolutely brilliant. Not only did most other companies quote at well over double what they charge but they also advised it takes up to 48hours. The guys were inspecting the car within 2 hours of the phone call. At £139 it was phenomenal value as the inspection was very thorough and very informative. I highly recommend these guys to anyone else looking for inspection services… Read Full Review

“Speedy and Excellent Service!”

Written on: 10/11/2011 by yourcandy (10 reviews written)

Ordered an inspection report on a Porsche. Despite it being a Sunday evening I got a reply back within 2 hours. Decided to use MVI UK after being quoted £325 by RAC. Just got the report back and I am impressed at it's depth and thoroughness. It was money well spent because the repairs needed on the car would have cost close to £2,000. With me being a complete car novice I would have otherwise bought the car! … Read Full Review

I was looking into buying a Bmw 3 series, So I phoned Mviuk (www.mviuk.co.uk) and arranged an inspection. They inspected the vehicle within 2 days, and found some problems which I was later able to use to negotiate the price down! Couldnt reccomend enough and so much cheaper than their competitors. … Read Full Review
