Portland's "Premier Modern Vehicle" OnSite Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection Service
We are the most well known, qualified and respected Oregon mobile inspection specific company with our lead inspector being an independent Advanced Level L1 ASE Master & GM Master Certified Technician who only performs used car evaluations. Our inspector is certified to the highest automotive standard that exists.
We take it from there. We will first confirm the booking with you, providing you whatever research we can along with a vehicle history report. We will then contact the seller to arrange the inspection time and we keep you notified via email along every step of the way. Your PDXinspections report (.pdf) is emailed to you directly from the inspection itself within minutes of completion. It's as easy as placing an online order. We only ask you notify the seller that we will be contacting them on the day of the inspection to arrange a 30 minute window of arrival.
MOBILITY – We go to the vehicle whether it is being sold by a private party or at a dealership. Our very thorough mobile inspections come with a complete inspection report (.pdf) immediately emailed to you and start at $99 – Visit our order page for our complete pricing structure
INFORMATION – Your inspection includes: unparalleled customer service and advice, research prior to inspection (we often have access to vehicle service records), an AutoCheck history report, the PDXinspections inspection report emailed within minutes of the inspection completion and post sale advice if requested.
INDUSTRY LEADING – Our inspections are modeled after manufacture certified vehicle standards (I.e.150 point certified) but are far superior as we also check for repainted panels, frame damage, prior repairs and proper operation of all electronics/accessories, noting tire, suspension, and brake wear as well as running extensive mechanical tests you won’t find anywhere else. PDXinspections is an “inspection specialist” not a repair facility and because of this you can be assured we are your only option who is guaranteed to be completely unbiased offering you the most accurate evaluation of your potential purchase. With well over 500 inspections per year on average, we know better than most how vehicles wear and what to expect to see at a given mileage/age.
COMPLETE – Our inspections are complete: Mechanical/Fluid/Safety/Wear Items/Electrical/Computer Diagnostics. We use the same factory level scanners and high tech diagnostic equipment as the big franchised dealers do. These include multiple high dollar scanners as well as a tablet/laptop and with enhanced data capabilities meaning on most 1996-2013 European, Asian and American vehicles we can electronically check airbags modules, anti-lock braking systems, body controllers and more (this is far superior to a simple code reader others are using), Midtronics Electronic battery/starting/charging analyzers, infrared testers, 5 gas digital infrared exhaust analyzer, digital engine analyzer, coolant refractometer measuring efficiency/condition, pressure testers, a digital video scope to identify and inspect areas not easily seen without disassembly, an air jack to properly lift and inspect the undercarriage/frame/steering/suspension and more.

CONVENIENCE – You are more than welcome to join the inspection although 95% our clients have already viewed the vehicle in person prior to booking and elect to book the inspection online and once they have reviewed the report decide to negotiate, go back with the report in hand to take a second look, or decide to skip the vehicle all together. Depending on the vehicle location we are usually available same day (if booked by 10:00am) to next day out. Our up to minute availability can be viewed below.
EASE OF ORDERING – 1) Check our online up to minute availability on our order page 2) Follow the instructions to figure your inspection cost 3) Choose one of our easy/widely used checkouts, and your done!
We suggest you let the seller know you’re considering having the vehicle inspected up front. We contact the seller after payment is made to arrange a 30 minute arrival window, notify you of that time if you’d like to be present otherwise an ETA on when to expect your report via email.
SPEED – We perform our industry leading complete inspection, measure painted panels to locate repaint and accidents, test drive, and email our report (.pdf) on our company letterhead immediately from the inspection site. High quality photos and high definition 1080P video of the vehicle’s condition including damage items is available and highly recommended for out of state buyers.
