Visit our testimonial page to see what our clients say about the pre-purchase car inspection and classic auto inspection service AAG has been providing for over 30 years!

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.

Your rep in Tampa area, Fred is a very valuable resource for your firm. He called me the evening before the pre-purchase inspection and spent a half-hour just letting me know what he would be looking for and doing for me when conducting the inspection. I got a feel for him and with his expertise and it was comforting knowing while I was in PA he would be my eyes and ears on site looking at my potential purchase. Perfect solution to the distance problem.

- Roy L. 1939 Ford Replica - 12/5/21

I wanted to buy an old car in another state, two days after finding it online. That’s such a bad idea, they’ve probably made fraud awareness videos out of it. AAG took the risk off the table, completely. They sent a true expert across state lines with a days notice to complete the most thorough examination of a car ever!

Pre-Purchase Inspection Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Pre-Purchase Inspection?: A pre-purchase 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 Pre-Purchase Inspection?: Pre-purchase 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, who's values can be highly subjective and require a specialized inspector. If you are driving a brand new car off the lot, then no, you will not need a pre-purchase inspection.

What Does a Pre Purchase Inspection Include?: The level of detail varies between companies. You should look for a pre-purchase inspection service that addresses all of your concerns as the buyer. Whether that is a visual inspection, mechanical inspection, road test, verification of ownership documents, accident history, or in the case of classic vehicles, inspection of restoration work.

What Does AAG Provide That Other Companies Don't?: AAG agents are trained, 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.
