HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM A VEHICLE HISTORY REPORT?

Find issues not visible in the photos before you negotiate

We like to say a history report is like a car’s resume but that an inspection is like an interview.  A history report looks into the past and may or may not tell you everything about the car, including whether or not it was in an accident or whether it was well maintained. An inspection will allow you to have confidence about the quality and condition of the pre-owned vehicle in its current state.  We think it is important to check both the history report and get an inspection.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

A little time upfront will provide years of peace of mind.

Our thorough inspection usually takes about 1 hour from the time the mechanics started our standardized procedure to the time your report is ready.  The mechanics can also walk your through the report and answer any questions you may have.

WHERE CAN I GET AN INSPECTION?

We only use the best and highest rated local garages.

Currently our garages are located in San Mateo, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, and San Jose.  We are planning to continue our expansion in the rest of the  San Francisco-Bay Area region.  We are always looking for honest mechanics so let us know if you have a favorite in your area that we don’t cover.

WHAT IS A PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION?

All the experts highly recommend having a trusted mechanic check out your car before purchasing it.

Before buying a used car, a pre-purchase inspection can make sure the car is in good condition and worth every penny you pay for it.  A detail inspection will give you information whether or not the car is in good working condition.  Our graded report card gives a transparent assessment how good each area being inspected is and allow you to make an informed purchase decision.

TRUSTED 3RD PARTY INSPECTIONS

Independent means fair and accurate.

Being independent allows us to provide a comprehensive inspection that is not biased nor hides any information.  We want both the buyer and seller to be happy with the transaction. Our standardized inspection results allow used car buyers to compare similar cars, weighing the differences based on any issues that may exist.
