Are you considering a vehicle purchase? Sometimes you may find the right one but it's not in your area. How can you buy with confidence over a long distance? How can you have a vehicle verified by an expert in the auto appraisal field?
The word pre-purchase inspection means just that. A certified appraiser is hired to be your eyes and ears when you cannot justify the expense of viewing the car yourself, or time is of the essence in the purchase process. For years, prudent buyers of collectable cars, have used individual appraisers, qualified in pre-purchase inspections, to view and assess their potential purchases.
Before you buy your next automobile, have an independent inspection completed by a pre-purchase inspector. With a certified professional inspection service, you can buy with confidence.
A Pre-Purchase inspection should include:
• An extensive 8 to 10 page condition report crammed full of information documenting the condition and originality of every component of the vehicle you wish to purchase.
• A report includes identifying numbers and pertinent historical documents, as available.
• Along with the inspection report, you will receive 36 to 48 photographs of the vehicle, providing first hand evidence of the vehicle's condition, inside and out.
• After gathering the required information, an inspection agent will review the report with you.
• The report and photos will be available to you by e-mail for viewing and download to your computer.
• The service includes a current market value, consultation with the pre-purchase value expert, all within 24 to 48 hours upon requesting an inspection.
• If you decide to purchase the car he can provide a value certificate to document condition and value. This certificate may be used for insurance coverage, estate planning or lending requirements.
• Agents are impartial and your interests are their only interest.
A good pre-purchase inspection will provide you with far more information about the vehicle than you would have, if viewing the vehicle yourself. Remember they are professionals and are equipped with the proper tools, inspection lists, paint thickness meters, and the experience to toughly evaluate all aspects of the vehicle. In addition, a good company's database, to provide you with the accurate purchase value for the vehicle, regardless of condition.
