Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Prepurchase Inspection?

A prepurchase inspection is a detailed assessment by a qualified individual to document the condition of a vehicle to help the potential buyer make an informed decision to buy or not to buy.

Do I Need a Prepurchase Inspection?

Prepurchase inspections are recommended when buying a vehicle second-hand or when buying long-distance. If you are buying any vehicle second-hand, there is a chance the seller may not be telling the whole truth about the vehicle in order to sell it to you. This is especially true for classic vehicles, whose values can be highly subjective and require a specialized inspector.

What is the typical turnaround time for a prepurchase inspection?

Prepurchase inspections are considered a priority service. Most prepurchase inspections take place within 2-4 days of receiving your order. Agents will coordinate with the seller to schedule the onsite inspection as soon as possible. Rain could delay the inspection because most sellers will not take their special interest vehicles out in bad weather.

What Does AAG Provide That Other Companies Don’t?

AAG agents are tested and certified to provide consistent results. They have extensive knowledge and backgrounds with vehicles! Our inspections include over 350 checkpoints throughout the vehicle. With that many checkpoints, our reports are much more thorough. When we quote our price for our service that includes everything, travel to the site, decoding, appraisal value consultations, etc. There are no hidden fees.

“Larry, explained every detail about the vehicle I was going to buy. He went over and beyond. I made my decision due to his expertise. Thank you Larry!”

Prepurchase Inspection - Detroit, MI - 7/22/22

“Very professional approach to the business at hand, clear explanation of what they can do for you, would recommend them to everyone needing their services.”

Errol S., 1951 Chevrolet Styline
Prepurchase Inspection - Orlando, FL - 7/29/22

“I used AAG two times and they really did a great job for me. They sent an inspector out to not only look at the car but he took pictures of the car top, underneath and inside the car too. He documented every good and not so good areas that I would not have thought to look. The inspector was also able to drive the car too. Great job!! If you can’t go, I highly recommend sending AAG to go for you. Thank You AAG!!”

Doug Y., 1964 Mercury Comet
Prepurchase Inspection - Denver, CO - 11/17/22

“AAG is an outstanding company, Brad Youmans was a professional and did a great job on the pre-purchase inspection of my GMC Sprint and also the insurance appraisals on my 3 other classic cars I own. I talked with Larry over the phone and learned a lot from him. I have used other inspection companies before, and they all fall far short of AAG.”

Bill V., 1957 Chevrolet 3100
Prepurchase Inspection - 2/11/22

“Excellent service throughout the entire process. AAG explained the process at the beginning and followed through in each step, they were prompt and never in a hurry to answer questions. The pictures and explanations were very informative and the appraisal step made me realize that the car was priced substantially higher than the market analysis showed. I passed on the purchase as a result of AAG’s findings.”
