Driveroo's Pre-Purchase Inspection streamlines the process around 3rd party pre-purchase inspections on used cars, trucks, and vans

"Driveroo’s Pre-purchase Inspection helps buyers and sellers alike by streamlining the process of third party pre-purchase inspections, and providing a higher level of confidence that the vehicle is going to be safe and mechanically sound," said Leo Sigal, Founder and CEO, Driveroo.

Driveroo, the proactive auto care service platform, today introduced Pre-purchase Inspection, a service that streamlines the process around third party pre-purchase inspections on used cars, trucks and vans.

Third party pre-purchase inspections are always recommended on used cars, but they often create logistical hurdles for both buyer and seller. The buyer bears the burden of having to schedule and pay for the services of an independent technician, and the seller has to find a way to get the car to the service shop and, if necessary, recondition the car before the sale can be completed. With Driveroo’s Pre-Purchase Inspection service, all sellers and used car dealers can now buy the pre-purchase inspection in advance of listing the vehicle for sale, and have it performed at an independent, local BAR licensed auto service shop in Driveroo’s Shop network. The technician inspects the car with the assistance of Driveroo’s AI-powered application, recommends necessary repairs, and completes them prior to showing the car to a potential buyer. The buyer can view the report and make an informed choice about the vehicle.

Driveroo’s Pre-Purchase Inspection service is already being used by used car dealerships in the San Francisco Bay Area. Rolling Motors, a used car dealership in San Bruno, California, chose to provide third party pre-purchase inspections on its entire inventory of used vehicles. “We strive to provide excellent vehicles, great customer service and transparency to our customers, so we focus heavily on making sure that the vehicles we sell are safe and in great condition. We know we are doing the right thing, because our customers come back to us for every vehicle they buy,” said Ben Ahmedov, CEO of Rolling Motors. “Having an independent company perform a pre-purchase inspection for each vehicle we sell demonstrates our commitment to providing 100% transparency about the condition of our cars. It also allows us to spend less time reconditioning cars, and more time matching our vehicles with qualified buyers. Driveroo has made it logistically possible to get an independent pre-purchase inspection for every vehicle. Now, we offer complete transparency about the cars history by using Carfax, and about its current condition by using Driveroo.“

Driveroo utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning to examine millions of data points, in order to accurately predict potential service issues before they arise. The Driveroo mobile app, in combination with partnerships with professional auto service providers, offers more visibility and convenience into the process of automotive care, maintenance, and inspections. Driveroo provides a full range of services, available instantly on-demand, from pre-purchase inspections to fleet care services.

“Up until recently, most people have had a low level of trust in the process of purchasing a used car because they had little visibility into the actual condition of the car,” said Leo Sigal, Founder and CEO of Driveroo. “Now, progressive, honest dealers are working to create higher levels of transparency and satisfaction for their customers. Driveroo’s Pre-Purchase Inspection helps buyers and sellers alike by streamlining the process of third party pre-purchase inspections, and providing a higher level of confidence that the vehicle is going to be safe and mechanically sound. We are providing critical information on the current condition of the car, much like what Carfax provides on the history of the vehicle, and we are doing that on-demand and in a systematic, transparent way. If a dealer does not offer a third party pre-purchase inspection up-front, the consumer can get the same essential inspection within an hour via the Driveroo App and be confident that the vehicle they are about to buy is going to serve them well.”

Driveroo uses advanced technology to guide the auto technician through the inspection process, allowing for uniform service across the entire Driveroo network. The company partners with a network of local BAR licensed auto service shops to provide mechanical inspections and all necessary maintenance and repairs. Driveroo currently serves consumers, car dealerships, managers of short-haul delivery services and virtual fleets, car/ride sharing services, and other businesses that need to maintain multiple vehicles. The Driveroo free mobile app is also available for car owners on Android and iOS devices.
