Inspection Report Contents
What does the inspection report look like? It includes 3 parts.
The first part contains vehicle data and a brief summary of inspection results followed by our recommendations, where we give our professional advice on buying a particular vehicle considering the potential cost of repairs/servicing and potential impact on a resale value.
The second part contains detailed reasoning, where you will find a detailed description of obtained results.
The detailed reasoning specifically describes the following areas:
- Body & Aesthetics
- Brakes & Tyres
- Control Units
- Road Test
The third part is a cloud-based archive typically containing 100-150 high-resolution pictures showing each aspect of an inspected vehicle in details.
It happens from time to time in the course of the inspection that we find evidence of major previous damage, making the further inspection worthless. For instance, if a vehicle shows damage in its frame, or we find out that airbags were deployed in the past, or the chassis number does not match V5 and has traces of illegal change, or other significant defects. In this case the following thorough inspection would be worthless, since such a vehicle should be avoided in any case. We certainly would recommend against buying such vehicles.
