Before a Visit to Bass Transmissions

Helpful Tips Before a Visit to Bass Transmissions

Bass Transmissions in Roanoke, VA, wants to advise our customers on what to do before a visit to our shop. The Virginia State Police requires that every vehicle registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia undergoes a safety and operating inspection once every 12 months. Luckily for residents of Roanoke, VA, Bass Transmissions is just a short drive away on the west side of Roanoke. We take pride in keeping our quality auto repairs affordable year after year. Before you stop by our shop, there are a few things you need to know and do to get your car ready for service.


We Are Your Local Shop for VA State Inspections

Having your car inspected doesn’t have to be a hassle if you have everything you need. Remember to bring the vehicle’s valid registration and insurance card. You don’t need to worry about bringing the title. The registration card will contain the title number, VIN number, and plate number. Another piece of advice is to schedule the inspection for a weekday in the middle of the month. It’s even better to drop off your vehicle the night before if you have the means to do so. All inspections are on a first-come, first served basis, so dropping your car off early may help your spot in line.


Providing Professional Repairs at Fair Prices

Over time, vehicles will begin to make strange noises. These noises can be indicators of parts beginning to fail and being in need of repair. Instead of just dealing with the noise and continuing to drive with it, bringing your car into our repair shop is the best thing you can do. Taking care of the problem as soon as possible will save you money, time, and get you back out on the road faster.


Cleaning Out Your Vehicle Before a Visit Helps Our Staff

Let’s be honest. Most of us have fast food receipts, empty coffee cups, napkins, and other debris in our car. Sometimes, those things can get in the way for our mechanics and inspection technicians. All we ask is that you take a few minutes to remove any trash from your vehicle before you bring it to us. During inspections, we have to look at certain safety items and components inside the car, including seats, seatbelts, airbags, door latches, steering, and others. Having a clean and organized vehicle gives us the best workspace to get your vehicle inspected quickly and correctly.
