The Power of On-Demand Auto Inspections

Auto inspections come in many different shapes and sizes. When buying a used car, dealerships may offer a free inspection before you take possession. 

Or, you may get a second opinion from your mechanic. But there are better options out there that will save you time and money. In this article, we will show you why you should choose to use an on-demand inspection service like WeGoLook to take care of your auto inspection needs.

No matter the case, the point is that when making a significant consumer purchase, you need to protect yourself.

And at WeGoLook, we are here to help. Let's take a look.

Why Auto Inspections?

"The way consumers obtain car inspections is changing rapidly with on-demand asset verification services like WeGoLook. This means one simple thing for you: lower costs and a higher level of service." - Robin Smith, CEO WeGoLook

We know from recent statistics that Americans alone purchase around 7 million vehicles every year. Many of these vehicle sales are covered by a traditional warranty, but many are not. And in the case of the latter, you can protect yourself with on-demand auto inspections.

An auto inspection from a qualified inspector has two benefits. First, and most important, is that it can uncover safety issues that you as the consumer may not be aware of. Secondly, on-demand auto inspections can save you a bundle of cash if your inspection turns up certain issues such as future unwanted or expensive maintenance.

Third-party auto inspections are an economical solution to many of these problems. Because of their importance, many States are mandating them under particular conditions and time intervals.

Auto inspections are there to protect you against safety and damage issues that may not be apparent to average consumers.

And the cost of an auto inspection is very reasonable. At WeGoLook for instance, you can get a basic vehicle condition inspection for $99.

Auto Inspections: A Dealer's Report

A dealer report on a used car is often offered to car shoppers as a way to ease their mind concerning any potential future repair issues. But, would you take a home inspection report from the person selling you property?

Heck no!

Like any diligent person, you'd get your own inspection from a qualified third-party. Vehicle inspections are no different.

Also, used car reports can be inaccurate because different jurisdictions have their own laws on what to report. Further, a used car report may not show unreported damage or maintenance from non-qualified mechanics.

So what is the solution? Let us explain.
