We ask a lot of our vehicles: to withstand the weather, to get us where we need to go, and to do it all without leaving us stranded on the side of the road. Eventually, though, we all grow out of vehicles, and the time comes to sell it on and look for a new set of wheels. The same is true for the caravans we might use to go on holiday, or the utility trailers tradies rely on to haul their equipment. If you’re in Queensland and planning on selling your vehicle soon, don’t forget that the law says you must have a valid road safety certificate on hand. Not only does this let your buyer know that everything is above board, but it allows them to transfer the registration over upon closing the deal.
Acquiring a caravan safety certificate or a “pass” for other light vehicles (including 4WDs and light trucks) doesn’t have to be a source of stress. In fact, with the right help, it can be an easy process that’s fast and effective. At Miss Roadworthy, a mobile service offering inspections and certifications, we have the practical knowledge and the necessary motivation to provide you with everything you require. How does it work?
The simplest way to acquire your road safety certificate
First, make a booking, and we’ll confirm the first available opportunity we have to provide service for your vehicle. If a driver is local to your area right away, we can arrange for a very quick arrival. The workload of the day determines our availability, but we make every effort to reach all our clients. During our confirmation conversation, you can share the location where you’d prefer us to inspect the vehicle.
Next, we arrive and begin the inspection. We follow all the Queensland criteria, whether that’s for a trailer safety certificate or for your caravan. Are you curious about what the inspection will consider? Feel free to ask! We enjoy providing clarity to our clients as they seek the ability to sell their vehicle finally. If a part of your vehicle does not pass the inspection, we liaise closely with mobile mechanics who can fix the problem ASAP.
Finally, once all issues have been addressed and we’ve completed the inspection, you will receive the safety inspection certificate you need to complete the sale. These remain valid for 2,000 kilometres of additional travel or for two months, whichever comes first. It should provide you with plenty of time to make the sale.
