Lets face it — commercial vehicles are pushed hard. We’re here to make sure your commercial vehicle wasn’t pushed past its limits. Our expert inspectors know these machines inside and out and will take extra care to note the industrial workings of your potential new vehicle.

More attention to industrial components

  • Condition of the body and paint
  • Presence of scratches, cracks, dents, or rust
  • Underbody check for any signs of rust or damage
  • Condition of tires and wheels
  • Glass exam for cracks or other flaws
  • Previous accident damage and previous flood damage
  • Check lights, A/C, gauges, and operation of all other electrical items
  • Thorough check of interior–including upholstery, mats, headliner, and seat belts
  • Comprehensive inspection of the motor and transmission
  • All drive-line components including 4-Wheel and All-Wheel systems
  • Steering, suspension, Braking components, and Exhaust system
  • Visual inspection of engine and all other items under the hood
  • Notation of fluid level, oil leaks, and any missing parts
  • Examine all specific commercial/industrial components
  • We’ll address any additional areas of concern that you identify (if available)
  • If possible, assuming the vehicle is street legal and safe weather conditions exist, the entire drive train performance is evaluated with a road test, to be performed by the seller or seller’s representative with the inspector as a passenger.
