Wheels Wisdom offers two types of used car inspections:
- Detailed X-Ray: A 150 + points inspection, which excludes underbody inspection and is carried out at seller’s location.
- Insanely Detailed X-Ray: A 175 + points inspection, which includes underbody inspection and is carried out at service centers.
Our used car inspection customers get a 10% discount on all Wheels Wisdom service and repair bookings for a period of 6 months after inspection.
Wheels Wisdom’s Used Car Inspection is recommended once you see a used car, test drive it, like it, are comfortable with the price, and the only remaining step is to inspect the used car and make sure it doesn’t have any red flags.
Once you reach this stage, simply contact the seller and get their consent for a Wheels Wisdom inspection. Tell the seller you’re serious about the deal, but can only proceed after a thorough inspection by Wheels Wisdom. Sellers who maintain their cars well are confident of getting their car inspected by experts, and a positive response from a seller agreeing for the inspection is the first sign that you can deal with the seller.
What happens on the day of inspection?
Detailed Used Car Inspection [150 plus points – Excludes Underbody Inspection – Carried out at Seller’s Location]: Our Service Experience Manager visits the address where the used car is located, at the time of appointment, and carries out a detailed 150+ point detailed inspection. The detailed inspection takes about two hours to complete. Your (the buyer’s) presence is not necessary, but you are most welcome to join if you wish. Since we don’t raise the vehicle on a lift or a ramp, the underbody of the vehicle, wheel bearings and brakes are not visually inspected.
Insanely Detailed Used Car Inspection [175 plus points – Includes Underbody Inspection – Carried out at Service Centers]: Our Service Experience Manager visits the address where the used car is located, at the time of appointment, and drives the car to a Wheels Wisdom preferred multi brand service center, for a detailed inspection. The detailed 175+ point detailed inspection takes about three to four hours to complete. The vehicle owner may want to bring the car to the service center themselves. In that case, we share the service center location with you, and you can request the seller to bring the vehicle to the service center at the appointment time. Your (the buyer’s) presence is not necessary, but you are most welcome to join if you wish. After the inspection, we safely drop the car back at the seller’s address, or the seller themselves can drive the car back to their address.
Report: The Used Car Inspection report is generated and shared with you via WhatsApp the same day after the inspection is completed. The report goes through multiple reviews to ensure every detail is verified, prior to being shared with you.
Rescheduling: We recognize that our customers are dependent on the seller’s availability to make the inspection happen. Therefore, we do not charge any rescheduling fees. However, the following conditions apply, which are essential for us to run smooth operations:
- Our Service Experience Managers will be able to wait for a maximum of 1 Hour from the time of appointment, for the inspection to begin. After an hour, they will have to move to their next appointment.
- New (rescheduled) appointment time is subject to availability on our website.
Additional inspections: In case you decide to not buy the car after seeing the inspection results, additional inspections must be booked via the Wheels Wisdom website for new inspections. At the moment, there are no discounts on additional inspections :-).
Our X-Ray Used Car Inspection service is available only in Bangalore at the moment.
