Did you know that there are almost twice as many unreported vehicle accidents as reported vehicle accidents in any given year? This makes sense when you consider the amount of uninsured and underinsured drivers in the United States, and the desire of the person that causes a crash to keep his or her insurance premium from skyrocketing if they do have insurance. Thus, the vast majority of accidents will not appear on a vehicle history report. If you want to increase the likelihood of uncovering an unreported accident, aren’t confident in your abilities to inspect a vehicle on your own, or might be interested in a vehicle not located close to where you live there are professional vehicle inspection services available that will inspect the vehicle for you, as well as conduct a road test.With more than 10 million inspections conducted annually, Alliance Inspection Management (AiM) is the industry leader in this area. Their clients include major domestic and imported auto manufacturers, national car rental companies, banks and finance companies and auto dealerships nationwide. Only AiM has a national base of over 600 inspectors who are full time AiM employees, not part time contract workers. Only AiM utilizes the very latest technology to ensure its used car inspections are accurate, unbiased, consistent and delivered on-time. Their over 600 field-based inspectors are equipped with Panasonic® Toughbook® tablet computers and 3G cellular capabilities. This state-of-the-art equipment allows for quicker inspection results to help you make a decision on a car or truck fast.
There are many methods AiM ’s technicians employ to determine whether or not a vehicle may have been in an unreported accident or flood, including:
- Measuring the width of the panel seams
- Checking for uneven hood gaps
- Checking for scratches on bolts
- Checking for the presence of rust in the wheel well
- Examining whether a part of the vehicle has been repainted
- Checking for wind noise during the road test
In addition to these methods, there are many other methods an AiM Mobile Inspection technician might also use to uncover undisclosed problems, either during the road test or 150 point inspection.
Most inspections are completed within 2 to 3 business days of when the order is placed. Once the inspection has been completed it usually takes 1 business day for AiM to email the report to the inspection purchaser.
A vehicle inspection can potentially save you from a very costly mistake, or confirm that the vehicle you are interested in is as clean as the seller claims. Thus spending a little more than $100 seems like a smart investment. AiM's highly trained employees will help you make a better buying decision.
If spending $100 seems like a high amount ask the seller if he is willing to split the cost. You can sweeten the offer by telling him or her that you will pay for the full cost of the inspection if you decide to purchase the vehicle, and if you do not purchase it, the seller can keep the inspection report to show other potential buyers.
