your auto inspection an experience. If you’re looking for a place to
get your vehicle inspected around Allandale, no need to go any further
than Burnet Rd., just south of North Loop. You’ve got to be looking for
it but just across from Sue Patrick’s  on Burnet Rd you’ll find Terry’s
Auto Inspections.
The building is not much bigger than a 2-door garage but the walls are
decorated with photos, bumper stickers,  posters and memorabilia to
keep you entertained while  Terry or one of his inspectors take your
car through the paces.

aren’t many shops
around dedicated to auto inspections. Most auto inspection services are
performed at gas stations or auto repair shops. It’s  just another
service. So you figure a business focused on auto inspections welcomes
the business and probably has figured out how to make it as painless as
possible. And my experience proved that to be the case. I pulled in on
a
Saturday morning and satTerrys_burnet_rd_1 inside enjoying the decor and country music
playing on the radio while my car was inspected. The guys are friendly
and efficient and my wait wasn’t long.  To learn more about Terry Sabin
and his business read
the recent business profile done by the Austin American-Statesman.

No_crybabiesTerry
confirmed the best time to get your car inspected is mid-month,
however, due to the change in law that goes into effect September 1
requiring tougher emission inspections and an increase in the
inspection fee, he’s doing more inspections than usual these last few
days of August. It’s easy to recommend Terry’s Burnet Rd Auto
Inspections because he’s local, however,  even if I didn’t live in
Allandale I’d probably make the drive to Terry’s just for the
experience.
