Vehicle Valuation & Inspection Services

Rest assured of the roadworthiness of any motor vehicle inspected by AA Kenya Technical Officers. Research reveals that 10% of all cars inspected have major faults, some of which can prove fatal. Our procedure includes thorough road test; detailed examination and a report issued within 24 hours giving you a stronger bargaining position if problems are detected.

Always consult AA Kenya for technical assessment of the vehicle that you want to buy or sell or and regularly consult our technicians for an assessment of your vehicle's performance.

Choosing a car to buy can be a hectic and stressful experience especially if you are purchasing a used car. For some, it is an outright gamble. AA Kenya performs out valuation/inspection on all types of motor vehicles including tractors and prime movers to ascertain the condition and value in relation to sale, purchase, insurance etc.

For a small fee, AA Kenya experts will inspect and answer nagging questions such as:

  • What is the mechanical condition of the car?
  • Are there any major defects requiring expensive fixing?
  • Are there signs of misuse or rough use?
  • Does the car betray an accident history?
  • Is the stated age and mileage genuine?
  • Is the car clean with respect to markings such as its log book, registration plates, chassis numbers, engine numbers etc?
  • What is the AA Kenya opinion of the car's value?
