Default Vehicle Pre Purchase Inspection company Sydney

Can anyone recommend a pre purchase car inspection service in or around Sydney and related costs. I have found a 2008 G6E Turbo that I am interested in but I live in Hervey Bay which is 1200 kms away. My options are to get the vehicle inspected and if I am happy with it I can then fly down and drive it back or just fly down look at it myself then drive it back. If I am not happy with it I have a day or two in Sydney and fly back.
Timing is the main issue as I can't get down to Sydney til 25th or 26th may and also flights a fairly expensive from Hervey bay to Sydney.

Just trying to get a plan together before I contact the seller.

Thanks Cav, I have done a bit of googling and research and was after any first hand info from forum members. The ones I found had both good and bad reviews.

If I can hijack the thread, anyone here used Motacheck independent mobile vehicle inspection in Adelaide?

Looking at getting a private vehicle inspected in SA, and thought this may be a good way to achieve that given they can go to the car instead of the current owner having to take it somewhere.

Would appreciate any feedback.
