Should you want to buy a custom or classic car, it’s a smart move to get a pre purchase car inspection San Diego California. Professional, experienced, and trained appraisers will inspect the vehicle you’re thinking of buying so that you can protect yourself and your investment of money, time, and effort.
If you don’t know that much about cars in general, or especially about classic or custom vehicles, working with an appraiser makes a lot of sense. The appraiser will help you determine if there are any mechanical or cosmetic problems with the vehicle that may prevent you from buying it. With this information, you can make your choice about whether to buy it or to keep looking for another one.
Additionally, an appraiser can get to the vehicle more easily than you if you don’t live nearby. Traveling is expensive in airfare, hotels, food, rental cars, and time away from family and work. Let the appraiser be your advocate and eyes and ears on the ground by doing the inspection for you. They will complete a full report and let you know what they find.
Your inspection will include dozens of photos and notes. You will get a PDF and hard-bound copy of the inspection. This is all organized so that you can easily read it and make the right decision about whether you want to buy it or not.
If the car needs a lot in repairs, you will know up front and can budget for that if you still want to move forward with the purchase. You could even get the cost of the vehicle down to help pay for those repairs. Take the inspection report to the owner as documentation of the problems the vehicle has to try to save some money.
We are experienced and can help you figure out whether the numbers match, if there are leaks, if the lights work, and otherwise give you all the information you need to make the best decision for your bank account. The best choice may be just to wait and look a little longer.
Appraisers are car enthusiasts themselves, often having decades of experience in the auto industry in one way or another. They use that experience and knowledge, and their professional training as appraisers to determine what a vehicle is worth. They access our extensive sales database to determine the value. They can tell if a vehicle has been in a wreck, the quality of the repairs, if there are any big mechanical or cosmetic issues, and more.
