Wilmington Used Car Inspections

Wilmington Used Car Inspections

Purchasing a used car today can be a hazard to your wallet. Why take a chance? We offer three types of used car vehicle inspections that can reduce your chances of buying that lemon. Over the decades, we have seen countless examples of what others have purchased without getting an inspection first.

If you want to see an example of what some used cars look like from underneath, take a look at our YouTube video from a recent inspection. Keep in mind that this is what unscrupulous people will try to sell you.

What Our Clients Say

Excellent service!! Staff very polite and courteous with up to date information regarding how the work is progressing. Their pre purchase check up is the best. They take pictures of all problem areas, give a detailed report of what needs to be done immediately or can wait, and explained why. Best of all respected my decision of what work I wanted to have done. They gave me a time it would be ready and they delivered. This car now runs and handles like brand new and instead of selling it I'm keeping it! I would recommend them to anyone who asked, especially if they were looking for a thorough evaluation.
