What to do When you Need a State Inspection

By July 31, 2017Uncategorized

If you are new to the Philadelphia area, you might not know what to do when you need a state inspection. Not every state requires one, after all. If you’ve never had to have one before, what do you do? Where do you go? The answer doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, all you really have to do is call Schafer’s Auto Center. Here are a few other tips to help you out.

Determine Need

First, you will want to figure out when you need a state inspection. There’s no point in putting your life on hold and going in to the auto shop unless you need to. You can check out the requirements within the state to ensure you get the inspection you need, when you need it.

Ensure Auto Shop

You will want to take your vehicle in to an auto shop that meets the state’s requirements. If the state has not approved the shop to give state inspections, you can get one, but it won’t count. You need the shop to be pre-approved in order to make your inspection count. Luckily, Schafer’s Auto Center is definitely approved. You can bring your vehicle here to us in Philadelphia and get everything you need.

Call for an Appointment

In order to work around your busy schedule, it is best to call for an appointment. You can look at the calendar a few days in advance or even a week or two in advance and let us know what works best for you. We’ll put you down on our calendar and save that time for you. That way, when you get here with your vehicle, you will get the state inspection you need as quickly and efficiently as possible. You can go back to your everyday life faster when we expect you and make time to accommodate you.

Ask Questions

While you are at the Philadelphia, PA auto shop, it is a good time to ask questions about your vehicle if you have them. You have expert technicians giving your vehicle attention so if there is anything you want to know, it would be a good idea to ask. You might want to know whether or not you need new tires, what schedule is best for maintenance, or anything else that concerns you. Use your time wisely and you won’t have to research much on your own later.
