Road-Ready Certified to offer collateral and VIN inspections for Collector Car Lending.

Road-Ready Certified®, a leading nationally recognized, independent pre-purchase inspection program for classic cars, announced today they will be the exclusive collateral and VIN inspection provider for Collector Car Lending, a new division of specialized finance partner Trailer Solutions Financial. Collector Car Lending requires a collateral and VIN inspection for all classic vehicle loan applications.

Popularly known for its pre-purchase inspection product for classic car buyers, Road-Ready Certified also offers the Spec Check™ collateral and VIN inspection product for finance, insurance and transport service providers in the classic car industry. With a Road-Ready Spec Check, a mobile inspector is dispatched to the location of the vehicle to verify the year, make, model and VIN. The inspector will also provide photos of the vehicle for collateral documentation.

“Our Spec Check product fits the needs of finance service providers and has become a popular product in our lineup,” said Roger Falcione, president and CEO of Road-Ready Certified. “Our fast and reliable inspections make Spec Check the ideal product for companies like Collector Car Lending that need a time-sensitive service.”

Additionally, Collector Car Lending customers will now have the option to upgrade the basic Spec Check inspection performed on their classic to a full Road-Ready Pre-Purchase Inspection. The upgrade will provide the results of a multi-point mechanical and visual inspection, test drive, 30+ full-color photos and inspector notes.

“It was a natural fit for us to partner with Road-Ready. We require a VIN Inspection on all of our loans, and we wanted to give our customers the option of upgrading to a full pre-purchase inspection for added peace of mind protection. Road-Ready has a nationwide team of inspectors that have provided us fast response times for our customers," said Andy Ackerman, president, and CEO of Collector Car Lending.
