PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS

Purpose

 

The intent of every MotorTech Pre-Purchase Inspection is to provide the information necessary to ensure that our clients are well-equipped to make an informed and educated purchasing decision on any special motor vehicle under consideration.  Further, we stress that our Inspectors put themselves in the place of a potential buyer who may not have the luxury of personally inspecting a vehicle being considered.  We have over 350 Inspectors located in all 50 states to serve the needs of our clients.  Please click here for the location of an Inspector near you.   While no inspection is guaranteed to uncover every flaw in a used motor vehicle, a trained eye (and ears) can help potential buyers avoid serious and costly problems now and in the future. With many thousands of dollars often at risk, a professional inspection and evaluation is good insurance against the unknown.
