We deal with such matters on a physical inspection basis or via a desktop review of a file and papers relating to the vehicle(s) in question. A physical inspection is always recommended if possible. Especially if a buyer is intending to purchase a vehicle long distance or requires a full detailed analysis of the true condition of the vehicle.

The physical pre-purchase inspection service will include a detailed inspection of the vehicle (without any dismantling) and during that time detailed digital images will be taken.  We will also perform a HPI history check on the vehicle to include a check of the vehicle’s odometer reading via the National mileage register (NMR) & MOT history check.   

We research the valuation of the vehicle using a variety of sources including industry recognised valuation guides (where applicable) including searching for comparable vehicles advertised for sale in the marketplace at the relevant point in time.

Once we have gathered all the facts, data and research we will then produce an executive summary valuation report, including our captured digital images (physical inspection only) and the relevant research used to support our expert findings.
