InspectMyRide.com, which offers online car shoppers comprehensive vehicle inspections, has formed a strategic alliance with Experian Automotive to provide customers with an AutoCheck® vehicle history report summary and empower them with an additional layer of confidence in making informed decisions about their online purchases.
As a subsidiary of DataScan Field Services LLC, one of the largest automotive inspection services in North America, InspectMyRide.com provides a 150+ point visual inspection, a variety of quality digital photos and a road test (when conditions permit). Now, the service also includes a summary of the AutoCheck report, so shoppers can receive the complete picture of what the vehicle has experienced. The summary is based on AutoCheck’s full vehicle history report, which leverages Experian’s North American Vehicle Database of more than 650 million vehicles to disclose important events in a vehicle’s history, such as major flood damage, frame damage, or odometer rollback issues, along with other key information. Using the summary report, InspectMyRide customers will also be able to compare vehicles of similar models using the AutoCheck Score®.
“Providing the most accurate and complete picture of the vehicle is our top priority. By adding the AutoCheck summary to our inspection report, customers get a full 360-degree view of the vehicle, spanning its history through to the present-day condition,” said Brent Sergot, vice president and general manager of DataScan. “Experian Automotive is a trusted company that provides the data and insight needed to understand a vehicle’s history, compare it to similar models and provide the confidence needed to make a purchasing decision.”
InspectMyRide.com makes visual inspections fast and affordable and eases concerns associated with buying pre-owned cars online. Within approximately 48 hours of a request, InspectMyRide.com will make arrangements to perform the third-party inspection almost anywhere in the country. The purchaser then receives an online comprehensive condition report, hi-resolution digital photographs and an AutoCheck® vehicle history report summary.
“Joining forces with the InspectMyRide team is a natural fit for us,” said Scott Waldron, president of Experian Automotive. “We strongly believe that in order for shoppers to make the most informed purchasing decision possible, it requires that they pull an AutoCheck vehicle history report and have the vehicle inspected by a trusted source.”
As a global leader in delivering critical information to organizations and consumers, Experian Automotive compiles data and information from reliable sources -- including state department of motor vehicle records, auto auctions and dealers from all 50 states – to identify possible reported accidents, odometer rollback, lemon vehicles, branded titles, past ownership and much more.
With online sales becoming more common in today’s automotive market, InspectMyRide.com’s nationwide network of professional inspectors is tailored to meet the needs of today’s consumers.
“Buying a car is a significant purchase, but buying online can sometimes be intimidating because of all the unknown factors,” Sergot said. “Having an experienced professional thoroughly inspect the vehicle you are considering for such a low price is worth avoiding a costly mistake.”
Unlike other vehicle inspection services, an InspectMyRide.com report includes a unique consumer-friendly scoring model that analyzes findings from the inspection and assigns both a numeric score and a rating of up to five stars for each vehicle.
The introduction of InspectMyRide.com was a natural progression for DataScan, which provides similar inspection and other services to the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, automotive lenders, dealerships and financial institutions. The DataScan team has more than 25 years of experience in providing automotive inspections and repair estimates.
