Inspections

NEW Get more for your car – book an inspection!

We are excited to offer pre-purchase inspections through a trusted partner, Lemon Squad! Inspections give bidders the confidence to pay more for your vehicle sight unseen.

Review your inspection before you go live.

Your inspection report isn’t shared with Cars & Bids until you approve it. While we strongly recommend including the report, as we’ve found that full transparency yields the best results, you can choose to keep the report private.

How inspections work:

  1. 1 Book your inspection after we’ve accepted your car
  2. 2 The inspector meets you and inspects your car
  3. 3 You review your inspection report and approve it
  4. 4 We list your car with the confidence of a full inspection report

Fast, thorough, and friendly!

Our team of expert inspectors know what to look for in a used vehicle. They will check for frame damage, drivetrain issues, fluid levels, interior and exterior condition, test drive the car, and more.

You can view a sample report here. Lemon Squad’s team is available to help at (888) 231-7965 if you have any questions.

Here are a few more reasons you should get an inspection:

  • Lemon Squad inspections are the fastest in the industry – typically completed in just a few days.
  • Thorough, professional inspections attract more bidders, more bids, and higher prices.
  • At only $199, a single additional bid typically pays for the entire inspection report.
