The AutoReportCard advantage:
No cutting corners:
Our inspections, done at full-service garages, are more thorough than mobile inspections:
We put the car on a lift and look carefully underneath at important parts that can’t be inspected otherwise.
Actual mechanics will inspect your car using our standardized step-by-step procedure.
Our test drive includes detailed criteria for evaluation, including a freeway drive, not just a quick trip around the block using a mental checklist.
Compare “apples to apples:”
Online reports can be directly compared because the inspection procedure and standards are the same everywhere.
Know your inspector:
We only establish partnerships with reputable independent mechanics in your area that have already been vetted online (e.g. via Yelp). Our inspectors don’t just show up and then disappear.
We don’t just say pass/fail:
We use specific measurements when applicable to help you better understand the car’s condition.
Our reports not only include easy to understand summaries of the inspection but also include details that would satisfy a demanding car expert.
Inspected vehicles with high scores may qualify for AutoReportCard Certified status which help sellers sell their cars even faster and gives buyers added peace of mind.
