We will check if the condition of the car conforms to the inspection safety standards of the vehicle inspection and whether there is part of the failure that could be dangerous. Mechanics with national qualifications, disassemble your car quickly and inspect it based on inspection items prescribed by the law.
Also, if there is a part that needs replacement or repair, we will check with you before start working.
We will propose a separate quotation if additional maintenance is required.
*Safety inspection fee doesn’t include a headlight adjustment fee, side slip adjustment fee, cost for incidental work, replacement parts, and oil/grease.
* We do not inspect illegally modified cars.

Weight tax as a statutory fee

[Note] The above weight tax is the amount applied for cars less than 13 year old from the initial registration.

Weight taxes for tax exempted eco cars (75% or 50%) or non-eco cars 13 or 18 years old are different. In that case, we will inform you after checking the car inspection certificate.

Inspection fee and incidental work cost chart (Sample: 2000cc passenger car)

The following incidental works will be charged for a safety inspection. Even though you think that is cheap at the beginning, it often ends up with unexpectedly higher costs with various incidental works. We will discuss with you and conduct safety inspection according to your budget.

The basic fee of safety inspection is composed of statutory inspection cost and inexpensive adjustment fees included in the inspection items.

After the inspection, if there are parts not conforming to the safety standards, or if there is a danger of becoming incompatible, maintenance will be necessary and maintenance fees and part/oil fees will be required separately.

Safety standards refer to the laws and regulations stipulated by the country to operate automobiles safely and safety inspection and inspection shall be in accordance with such standards to conduct works.

The blank cells indicate items that are free of charge. (1), (2) and (3) are included in the basic inspection fee. Our motto is to hand over your car with its best condition, and we implement a manual car wash and indoor cleaning for you free of charge.

As expected, Company T charges the highest for the basic fee. Company B and Company K sell low prices, but let’s see the final cost.

Total tire replacement cost

When the depth of the groove of the tire becomes 1.6 mm or less, it does not-conform to the safety standards and will not pass a car inspection. Cracks and damage are also highly likely to rupture while driving, which is very dangerous. Even though the groove of the tire is left, it is said that about 5 years is the life of rubber.

Companies other than Company T use imported tires. The biggest advantage of imported tires is that they are replaceable with reasonable prices compared to ones domestically manufactured. We have imported tires too, so you can choose according to your budget.

It seems that the other wages are included in the replacement cost of Company K. Although it depends on the tire brand, Company T charges the highest for tire replacement. The difference between Company T and K is about 60,000 yen.

A battery is a consumable item. We recommend you to change every two years before causing any battery trouble. Company T sets the highest price for the battery.

If you use the brake frequently in a deteriorated condition, it’s possible that the brake will not work. Company B sets the highest price for brake oil change.

Although the parts cost is almost the same for all the companies, Company K sets the highest price, including the replacement work fee.

The expiration date is clearly stated, and it does not conform to safety standards after the expiration date. Company T sets the highest price.

Engine oil plays a role of lubrication, cooling, etc., in a very severe environment. Therefore, a replacement is required semiannually or every 5,000 km. Regular replacement is required for oil elements that filter contaminants mixed in the oil. Company T sets the highest price for engine oil and Company B for oil elements.

Company T also sets the highest price for regular replacement parts.

Research result

There are many chargeable items at the new car dealer and it turned out to be very expensive. Although the other two companies charge both high and low prices depending on the items, total safety inspection costs were almost the same. However, a car inspection with cheaper basic labor cost sets the additional work fee at a higher price to balance out. And if maintenance is carried out for you to drive safely, the overall safety inspection fee will be high as a result.

We put interaction with our customers as the top priority and make proposals adjusted to the customers’ budget with techniques and knowledge equivalent to those of dealers.
