Kick The Tyres started out in Christchurch as Canterbury Car Inspections over 20 years ago.  That’s a long time and a lot of vehicles inspected!  With that sort of history, you can be assured that we have a lot of experience and a wealth of knowledge about motor vehicles in New Zealand.  Our team are fully trained, qualified and highly knowledgeable about a wide range of vehicles.

With branches now operating in Christchurch and Invercargill, watch this space for more branches popping up nationwide in 2020!

Our goal? To be the number one independent provider of quality pre-purchase vehicle inspections.

January 2020 “As I don't have any clue about cars, a friend recommended me to make a pre-purchase check over here. The service was excellent, and all my questions were answered in much detail. Additionally, I received a detailed report about all aspects of the car's condition. I 100% recommend to anyone, and especially when you don't know much about cars!”

December 2019 “Me and my girlfriend wanted to buy a backpacker van, but we were not sure if it was a good one. That is why we decided to go to Kick the Tyres to have a look at it. The service was great! Shane really took the time to help us as good as he could and although the van did not pass the Pre-Purchase Inspection, we were really happy with the honest advice. :)”

December 2019 “Fast, thorough and very well-presented pre-purchase vehicle inspection by Shane at Kick The Tyres. Thanks mate, for letting us know what we’re in for with the new car. Glad we can now purchase with confidence & know we’re getting what we’re paying for. Well worth the peace of mind.”
