HOW IT WORKS

Book inspection

Booking your used car pre purchase inspection with Motovise is easy. Just fill out our simple form where we ask for your information, the seller’s contact information and some basic details about the vehicle that you need us to inspect. We will coordinate with the seller and schedule an appointment within 24-48 hours to perform our full vehicle inspection. Once the appointment is scheduled we will notify you. Of course you are more than welcome to be present during our inspection, but if you don’t have time or live too far, we’ll take care of everything and notify you when we’re all done.

The Nitty-Gritty

This is where the magic happens! Our technician will arrive onsite to perform a full vehicle inspection. We check everything from visible structural and mechanical components to scanning your on-board computer systems. If permitted we will take the car for a spin and make sure it runs and drives like a dream. We are trained to be able to provide you with a complete assessment of a vehicle’s overall condition. Typically this part of the process takes about an hour.
