If you need to buy a car on either STT or STJ, send me a PM when you find one and I can tell you if it's a good one or not...

just for info where are you and what do you charge for a car inspection to buy? I get a few people asking me what to do.

I run a biz on STT called "Marty's Mobile Mechanic Services" and I can travel to STJ, as well...STX is just cost prohibitive for me....I charge $40 for a Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI). I ask that you NOT tell me the asking price prior to me checking the vehicle, so that, when I am done with my Inspection, I will tell you what my opinion of the vehicle is, as well as my opinion of it's value.

The PPI covers EVERYTHING! I check the vehicle so thoroughly, that, once given my approval, I would feel safe sending my mother on a cross-country trip in it...without a cell phone! Everything from brakes, bearings, struts, U-joints,exhaust, fluid levels, leaks, to hazards, lights, bulbs, belts, radio, seatbelts...you name it, I check it!! Once the PPI is complete, I provide a written account of my findings with the receipt.

Hey Marty,
Glad things are doing well for you. May get in touch when I arrive for advice on an island car on STX (if you are so inclined). I'll be in the Gallows bay area. Can't wait...

Good day -
Marty, your trip to St. John will be additional to the fee you charge above, right?
Or $40.00 includes the ferry ride?

Good point, Moon, yes, trips to STJ will be an additional charge due to ferry...

Nova, yeah, I may just make an exception for you! Haha! (plus, I wanna see IslandJoan, too!)
