Lining up to see a few cars in the Berkshire/Hampshire areas, mainly around Reading/Basingstoke.

Would really appreciate it if anyone could give me any recommendations for these areas for a pre purchase inspection

I used porscheinspections.com which used to be run by Peter Morgan, who has now retired. The PPI was extremely thorough and expertly done. For around £400 you get a 30 page report with photos and it includes an HPI check.
The car I bought was in Farnborough so they cover that area. Strongly recommended.

Thanks to all, appreciate the quick replies.

Ive since spoken with Ray at Northway, and sent a few emails to others including Porsche Inspections.

I'm just waiting to hear back from the car owners to see how we can work it.

If you end up having an issue getting the car taken to a place for a PPI and need it done where the car is then James at JMBautomotive will go to the car , he is a time served Porsche tech and can do borescopes as well as PPIs . he can cover Hants and the reading area. I use him for nearly everything on my car .
