HOW IT WORKS The KarChek service uses proven methodology to inspect each vehicle. KarCheck employs only A.S.E. Certified Master Technicians to inspect hundreds of body, chassis, mechanical, and electrical points on your vehicle, and provides you with a completed checklist and expert evaluation comprising more than 100 categories. Our comprehensive checklist allows us to give you an informed evaluation of the vehicle, and can help identify a well-restored wrecked vehicle as well as one that was restored badly. It might turn out that the rebuild was properly done, but even if it is a fine car, wouldn't you like to know the truth before you enter into price negotiations? We come to the car You don't have to worry about making an appointment to get the vehicle to a mechanic, or getting a ride to and from the shop to drop off the car - we come to the car. Call us and tell us where to find the vehicle and arrange a time with the seller to perform the inspection (often this can happen the same day), and we'll take care of the rest. You can be there for the inspection if you want (always a good idea), or we can mail or fax the evaluation form to you. We try to make it as easy as possible for you to avoid buying a wreck. In the end, you'll get an honest written report that you can use to make an informed purchase decision. If the vehicle passes muster, the report gives you valuable information you can use to either negotiate a better price or to justify the car's true value. Information is power. Vehicle Inspection Procedures We inspect the body, frame, paint, interior, mechanical systems, electrical systems, look for previous damage, flood damage, and we test drive the vehicle. We put all this information in a written report and provide a verbal consultation. Vehicle Checkpoints
Jim is fantastic! He was so thorough and explained everything so well. Incredibly knowledgeable. I will recommend KarChek to everyone I know who is buying a used car. The peace of mind I have in buying this car now is worth so much more than the cost to have Jim come look at it. If you need a car inspected, don't call anybody else! I will absolutely call Jim in the future, and tell everybody about the excellent service he provides. Thank you Jim! - Alicia Roumonada (Facebook)
