Cars On Line.com sees buyers and sellers from all over the world, and the Cars On Line Inspection Service has become a necessity for many car buyers. One of the things we always preach is to have an inspection done before you buy. Don’t buy sight unseen!
It’s no secret. Many sellers out there have a tendency to exaggerate the quality of the vehicles they’re selling. Efforts to get the best price aren’t always an attempt to be misleading. Some sellers just don’t see the problems with the vehicles they’ve spent years driving or restoring. This causes a problem when the quality of the vehicle is sitting right between one class and another, a predicament that could be hard to identify and mean a difference in thousands of dollars. Take this 1959 El Camino for example. The ad indicated it was a 20-foot car, and to the seller it may have looked good at that distance. That statement implies the car is a “driver quality” car. The inspector reported otherwise, “this is not considered a 20-footer, but more like a 40-footer.” He also said it came in at a low Class Four, even a Class Five.

The Cars On Line Inspection Service has set the standard for inspections and appraisals on collector cars. The inspectors in our inspection network use our standard report so that you get the same type of service anywhere in the United States or Canada. Our contracted inspectors are not affiliated with any sales organization. Their loyalty is to the buyer. Click here to find out more!
