It’s been busy at WeGoLook since the beginning of the year and already, it’s getting exciting in 2016. We wanted to provide a quick round-up of some of the WeGoLook related news around the web. We've got news about NAAA Policy updates for 2016, vacation rental surprises and where you can find CEO Robin Smith's thoughts on the gig economy.
NAAA updates Generic Condition Report criteria for 2016
The National Auto Auction Association announced the updated criteria and requirements for generic condition reports for 2016. Previously, the generic condition report required mechanical and body inspection information. The updated criteria removes the more specialized technical information from the generic condition report requirements.
Why is this important to us at WeGoLook? It now means our network of 20,000+ Lookers are now a viable resource and solution for financial companies, lenders, insurers and auto auction companies to complete generic report requirements. We’re excited for the opportunity to prove our vehicle inspection reports will provide NAAA members the accuracy and speed they need from generic condition reports to be successful.
You can learn more about the NAAA Arbitration Policy Summary of Changes here. The changes are effective as of February 1, 2016.
