RACV inspections?

Hi all,

just out of interest, does a standard RACV check have a standard fee? (I'm pulling a figure out of my arse here -->) For example, no matter what RACV approved mechanic I go to, and no matter what car I an getting checked, the standard RACV check should cost say "$150".

Would the above be true? Or would it be more like:

RACV check on Datsun: $100
RACV check on Mercedes: $500

Or,

Johnno the mechanic does an RACV check on standard car: $200
Davo the mechanic does an RACV check on same car: $350

Can someone enlighten me please? Or, give me a link to a related thread perhaps? Cheers

-Dave-

Re: RACV inspections?

Thanks for the link jamesk :)

Amazingly I didn't think of looking online!

I thought I've better check out the RACV site just in case prices differed to RACWA and this is what I found:

(RACV)

Extra time (eg 4WD and imports): Members $210, Non members $283
Pre purchase
Members $125, Non members $165
Roadworthy
Basic test (standard cars) $75
Extra time (4WD, luxury, imports, exotic vehicles) $95
Recheck
$75

Re-check

Item Member Price Non-Member Price

I was thinking of an inspection on an old Corolla, but if the prices are "this high" it isn't worth it for something so cheap. Well worth it for buying an E-series Ford though.

Thanks again for the link jamesk.
