What we inspect
Our inspections are about more than just kicking tires and checking lights. We are looking for previous repairs, faulty features and options, failing mechanical systems and how the vehicle performs.
High Quality Photos
We provide over 100 high quality digital photographs showing the vehicle’s full overall condition including any damages or previous repairs we find including undercarriage photos.
Each of our inspections also includes a HD video of the vehicle’s body, interior and all of its features and options being tested. We also include video of the engine and exhaust so you get a feel for how it runs.
Our checklist is very easy to understand and includes notes in each section explaining the condition of the systems. Each system is graded based on its condition so you can make an informed decision on the vehicle.
Each vehicle we inspect we take on a full road test as long as we have seller’s permission, the vehicle is licensed and safe for operation.
We fully examine the undercarriage of each vehicle we inspect. Although we are not able to get every vehicle on a life we do carry ramps so we can fully inspect the vehicle undercarriage.
Each vehicle we inspect we scan the vehicle’s on board computer to ensure the seller has not erased any codes or there is an pending diagnostic codes.
What we do
Avoid buying a used car lemon or a car with hidden mechanical or structural problems. Our used car inspections can save you not only our inspection fee but sometimes even 1000’s of unexpected repair bills after you purchase the vehicle.
Our Used Car Inspections provide a hands-on inspection of the body, frame, interior, features and options, lighting, engine, transmission, driveline, brakes and steering systems. We put you in the driver’s seat during our used car inspections with over 100 quality photos, HD video of the cars body, , interior, features and options as well as a video of the engine and exhaust going through the RPM range. Our Used Car Inspections also provide a full test drive of the vehicle as long as conditions permit. These days when buying a used car or truck you never really know what you are getting stuck with unless you get an independent 3rd party inspection by a professional. See one of our ACTUAL past inspections performed in the St Louis area here.
We help answer questions such as…
- Are there open recalls on this car?
- Is there undisclosed hidden repair damage to this car?
- Was the car maintained and cared for well?
- Are you buying someone else’s lemon?
- Did someone pond off their problems by trading in their used car?
- Is the seller representing the vehicle truthfully?
This is where our Pre-Purchase Used Car Inspections can help you know what you are buying…
Video is worth a million words
What is the next best thing besides being there to see the car yourself firsthand? Seeing the car in HD video being tested and performing. Our videos provide you with details of the vehicle’s body, interior, features and options being tested as well as video (AND SOUND) of the engine and exhaust being tested through the full RPM range so you can get a feel for how it runs. Sadly even though we provide video of the car we are not able to provide video of the test drive portion be rest assured we will put it through a full 3-5 mile test drive at both city and highway speeds.
