It's often been said, and it's true: buying a used car is a much better financial decision than buying a new one. The value of a car can drop to 50-60% of its original price when it's just 3 years old. If you're looking to get as much value as you can for your dollar, a used car is the way to go.

Get Your Vehicle Inspected With Carchex Today! But how can you make sure the used car you're looking at is a good, quality vehicle? The best way is to have the car inspected by a professional mechanic. They know what to look for and can alert you to problem areas before you've invested in a used car purchase.

It's not always easy, however, to find a good, quality mechanic that you can trust. And these days you might find yourself shopping on eBay and find a car clear across the country. How can you get a vehicle inspection done then?

Fortunately there are services that will provide you with a professional mechanic, trained in the area of vehicle inspections. These companies will send their mechanic to the car, and inspect it for you - whether you're there or not. They will examine the car closely and check a number of items including dents, paint, rust, wear, tire quality, interior, performance, and more. Some vehicle inspection companies even offer a guarantee if their efforts are not satisfactory in finding a major flaw or issue.

Not all vehicle inspection companies are the same, however. Differences exist in cost, quality, and range of service. Finding the best vehicle inspection company is important to giving you piece of mind before you spend thousands of dollars on your next car.

Some important factors to consider when looking at vehicle inspection companies include:

  • Coverage and reporting.  What aspects of the car will the vehicle inspector review? How will that information be communicated to you?
  • Cost.  How does the cost of the vehicle inspection service compare with others?
  • Reliability of the company.  Is the vehicle inspection company one you can trust, or is it a fly-by-night operation? How is it rated by the Better Business Bureau and other reporting agencies? has reviewed and ranked the best vehicle inspection companies available today. We hope this information helps you find the right car for your next purchase!
