I’ve used MintCo on four separate occasions. Several friends have also used Ivan including an inspection for a GTR.
The MintCo team are great professionals and help you make a decision on the car within hours of inspection so you can move first on any desirable vehicle. They always work around the clock to turn around inspections on cars and travels across the UK. They provide great detail and thoroughness regardless on which car they is inspecting. They run thorough checks including bodywork, diagnostics by plugging into the car ECUs and engine, chassis, suspension etc. They have saved me from buying a crash damage Porsche Panamera which was very well repaired.
I’d recommend them without hesitation and I’m very fussy. Also, compared to the cost of the car the inspection is a fraction of the value of the car. In the long term, inspecting any vehicle by MintCo, I’m sure this will save you money and hassle in the long run.

I was very impressed with Ivan from MintCo. To the point I would happily buy a GTR without seeing it if he gave it the all clear.

I haven't found my perfect car yet, but when I do I will be asking MintCo Automotive to come and inspect it once more.
