NH ME State Inspection

NH and ME State Inspections

When it comes to your vehicle, you're eventually going to need a NH state inspection. For some, the NH state inspection is something to avoid at all costs, because it so often means spending more and more money on your vehicle that - for whatever reason - wouldn't pass inspection.

At Stratham Tire, our goal is not to fail your vehicle or suggest unnecessary repairs; it's to save you money and keep you and the drivers you share the road with safe. By giving you an honest, accurate, and comprehensive state inspection we believe we can save you more money than anyone else. It's a level of service and value that's hard to find elsewhere, and its one thing that has helped us make long-time repeat customers out of customers who simply happened to come in one day for their dreaded state inspection.

Your NH state inspection shouldn't be viewed as an inconvenience. At Stratham Tire - it's a chance for you to save money. Let's face it - a lot can go wrong with your car. But at Stratham Tire, we use the state inspection as an opportunity to identify glaring problems that need fixing now, as well as burgeoning issues that could cost you money further down the road. What we don't do is use the NH state inspection as an opportunity to thrust a handful of unnecessary repairs on your vehicle.
