RUST ONLY Guaranteed Inspection Option

As an option, you can choose to have the guarantee applied only to rust for vehicles with known previous accident damage/repairs. In this case the vehicle still receives the full Pre-Compliance Vehicle Inspection process, only excluding accident damage/repairs. This is an excellent stress-free way to ensure your vehicles do not have any unexpected rust-related compliance costs when they arrive in New Zealand.

Our Guaranteed Pre-Compliance Vehicle Inspection is done in accordance with standards set by the NZTA and our inspectors have passed the NZTA Vehicle Structural Inspection Course. This combined with the skill and experience of our inspectors give us the confidence to provide a written guarantee that vehicles that pass our Guaranteed Pre-Compliance Vehicle Inspection will pass the NZTA compliance test without any structural repairs.

AIS is the largest and leading domestic vehicle inspection company in Japan and its 200 plus inspectors are responsible for the inspection of some 500,000 vehicles annually.
