I will be buying a used car in the next few days

It's about 5 years old valued around 15k

I wanted to get it tested by a mechanic as a pre purchase inspection

RACV and RED book inspection are asking around $400 for the same which I find to be on the higher side

Any other reliable recommendations?
I don't mind travelling a bit to the garage to get the inspection done so any suburb within 20km from CBd would be fine

Cheers

Redbook seem to be about $250? https://www.redbook.com.au/inspect/

Otherwise, could ask locally at a couple of service stations that actually do servicing (have to look for service bay/s), or even somewhere like a KMart Tyre and Auto if they could do it or recommend somewhere.. :)
