Pre-Purchase Inspections (PPI)


Why order a PPI and what does it cover?

A pre-purchase inspection protects you. Vehicle sellers and dealers want to sell their car, period. They may also be paid on commission or have a sentimental connection to a vehicle that makes it hard for them to see the flaws. Nothing is perfect, and we want to make sure you have all of the information in your hands to make an educated decision on whether it is the right vehicle for you. Our job is to get all of the information below, along with photos and videos to you so that you can decide if it is the right fit, and the right price. At the end of the day, we have no attachment to the vehicle and aren't affected financially by whether you purchase or not. An unbiased opinion is a necessity, especially if you are thinking about buying sight unseen. There are plenty of horror stories on the internet about people who did just that, without a qualified inspector providing a detailed pre-purchase inspection, and were burned for thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.

We provide the most thorough PPI available. Looking over every aspect of the vehicle and giving you detailed information on all parts.
