Comparing Pre-Purchase Inspections (PPI)

Not all Automotive Technicians are qualified to perform a PPI, and not all PPI's are the same!

Getting a partial or incomplete inspection increases your chances of existing problems missed or overlooked. Anything missed during the PPI becomes your problem after the purchase.

MechanicBe aware: There are no standardizations for Technicians or inspection types when performing a PPI. Any Technician can say they perform a PPI, but only a few are qualified.

We believe that a PPI should only be perform by Technicians that are certified on all 8 automotive areas, and are Body & Frame specialists. Most Automotive Technicians however, specialize on only on a few of the 8 general automotive areas.

A PPI should be performed by a Technician that is certified on all 8 General Automotive Areas, which is an ASE Certified Master Technician.

Only an ASE Master Certified Technician and Body & Frame Specialist is qualified to properly inspect EVERY mechanical, electrical, and frame systems.

Don't just compare price, you must compare the qualifications of the Technicians and reputation of the company when looking for a PPI.
