Choosing a Pre Purchase Auto Inspection

Getting a pre purchase auto inspection matters

There is no doubt that when buying a used car it is always beneficial to complete a pre purchase auto inspection. One out of six cars inspected by Motovise has major structural or flood damage and half of that damage remains undisclosed to the buyer. It’s not on any history report and you can bet the seller won’t be willing to disclose any details that can harm his/her chances of selling the vehicle. So, when buying a used car you should never assume the seller will disclose any damages or problems with the vehicle. It is important to get the vehicle inspected by a reputable company which specializes in pre purchase auto inspections. But how does one go about finding and ultimately paying for the right pre purchase auto inspection? Let’s take a look!

How to choose the right pre purchase auto inspection:

Find a qualified company to perform your pre purchase auto inspection.

Qualifications: This is probably the most important item to check off your list when searching for a pre purchase auto inspection. Call in and ask how their inspectors are selected and what is their experience. Ask what techniques they use to identify any potential problems with vehicles. Strict processes and procedures keep inspections consistent and avoid missing issues which as a result, could end up costing you a small fortune. The correct company should have standardized inspection procedures to keep things consistent. Here at Motovise, we drive all our vehicles on ramps to inspect the under-body for damage and leaks, therefore detecting more issues and providing the most accurate inspection reports.

Make sure they are honest and professional.

Transparency and professionalism: First impressions are always important. Read through the website and make sure there is clear language on how the process works and if there are any hidden or added fees. Some companies will even charge you extra for basic things such as phone consultations or answering questions about your report. Speaking of reports, make sure there is a clear sample of the report on the website as the last thing you need is to pay for a pre purchase auto inspection and never get a report.(Yes, it happens). At Motovise we provide our customers with leading condition reports that include easy to read layouts and photos. (Check out what’s included here). Make sure the information on the reports covers your needs and provides you with sufficient information to make a purchasing decision so you don’t end up with more unanswered questions .

A great reputation is a must.

Reputation: Reputation is everything in our day an age. Same goes for pre purchase auto inspection companies. Consistent 5 stars reviews across multiple platforms is a great start. This can help you narrow down your search for a reputable company to help with your next used car purchase. You should avoid hiring someone with inconsistent reviews who spends more time responding to negative reviews than actually working. At Motovise our 5 star ratings across the board speak for themselves. This, among other things, helps build a level of trust from the first interaction. Therefore, helping our customers feel comfortable through the whole inspection process.
