MyUsedCarBuddy will provide you with a professional comprehensive top-side inspection service. We can provide service at all sellers including OffleaseOnly, HGreg, Florida Fine Cars,, Gateway Classics, and many, many more. We are an independent service working for the buyer.

Sellers do-not get a referral fee. If its the right car for the buyer, they get the sale and nothing more. The buyer gets what was expected.

Our initial observations are the exterior, dings, dents, scratches, broken lenses, missing equipment, misaligned panels and obvious body damage. We perform an electronic paint test on every vehicle, when applicable, and are looking to identify areas of the vehicle that are not original, being repaired or repainted, or serviced. We look for evidence of poor, substandard, and unfinished repairs.

The interior inspection will include testing of the vital accessories, controls and options, and we look at the and seating, trim and doors for notable damage. A tire and wheel inspection, the brand, the tread, and the condition of the wheels.

The mechanical inspection will focus on serviceable fluids, looking for areas of lack of maintenance, fluid leaks, fluid intermixing, modifications, visible leaks and missing items; and always a vehicle computer scan test when applicable.

The vehicle will be driven, testing the engine, transmission, steering and brake systems. We may also identify strong smoke odors, or musty smells.

We take lots of pictures and add an eight-page report, emailed to any device. We provide the highest quality pre-purchase vehicle inspection service the industry has. The data in our reports can be used as part of the buyers purchase decision to include (but not limited to) Carfax, AutoCheck, TrueFrame, service and maintenance records, and seller disclosures.
