pre-buy recommendation

pre-buy recommendation

I'm looking at purchasing a 2004 T182T in Texas (newby pilot).  Could anyone recommend (highly or to avoid) a place that does pre-buy inspections?  Also, I understand these can vary quite a bit.  It sounds like the best prepurchase inspection is an Annual.  Any other suggestions of things to look at?
Thanks!

Re: pre-buy recommendation

I just went through the same thing. I called Cessna (web site is wrong) for nearest authorized maintenance shop. Called the shop and they recommended a small version of the annual. If they found anything out of order they would call me back and recommend what to do next. I also asked them to scope the cylinders. They only found one small thing and I had them fix it. Good luck
