The Experts Agree
Don’t take our word for it, take the word of the most respected automotive brands. They all agree that an independent verification of a pre-owned vehicle’s quality is the smartest buying decision you will make, and with SureSale, you can be sure that your vehicle meets our quality standard.
Experts agree that used cars must be inspected by a qualified specialist before the final negotiation for purchase. The ordinary car buyer, even if mechanically savvy, really can't do it justice. A thorough, professional inspection can tell you whether you're about to buy a peach or a lemon.
Before you close the deal, have it scrutinized by a repair shop that routinely does diagnostic work. A dealer should have no problem lending youthe car to have...your mechanic look at it.
A pre-purchase inspection is highly recommended when purchasing a vehicle...a qualified PPI makes financial sense.
If you’re seriously considering a car, take it to a trusted mechanic to have it fully checked out before signing a bill of sale. They can get vantage points most shoppers won’t be able to get...
Despite being advertised as “like new” or in “mint” condition, used cars are indeed used... The best advice is to have the car looked at by a certified mechanic.
While a simple test drive is a nice way to get a feel for a car, it’s no replacement for a true inspection from a certified mechanic... we recommend getting an inspection on nearly any used car.
In our daily lives we rely on industry standards which are designed to protect us. We may take them for granted, but can you imagine flying if there were no safety standards, or purchasing a home without having it inspected? Likely, the answer is no. In the used car industry, there is no government agency like we have with aviation or food safety, which sets and enforces used car quality standards. This is why we created SureSale.
We’re here to upset the lemon cart, so to speak. We’ve helped thousands of car buyers just like you navigate the jungle of used car buying and resolve their car buying concerns. With SureSale you can:
Have Confidence You’re Buying a Quality Car
Most used vehicles are sold “as is” so you have one chance to get it right. Whether you are buying a car from a private seller or a dealer, most used car purchases are “as is,” which means there are no guarantees of quality, and the buyer assumes the responsibility of costly repairs. In fact, very few states even have a requirement for sellers to inspect and repair vehicles prior to sale, and even fewer set a minimum safety standard. Being sure has never been more important, or more complicated to achieve. SureSale’s universal pre-owned vehicle quality standard has filled this void for thousands of buyers: if it’s a SureSale, you know it’s a quality vehicle.
Avoid Costly and Unforeseen Auto Repairs
Over 80% of car buyers say repair costs are their biggest worry when buying a used car. It’s a valid concern. As cars age they start to require additional maintenance and repair. An average repair bill can cost up to $600, and these unforeseen costs are often not factored into a buyer’s decision. As most of us are not trained mechanics, we have to rely on independent experts to give us a dependable quality assessment. You’ll get that with a SureSale vehicle, so you can be confident you’re buying a car that’s in great condition.
Get an Independent Verification of Quality
Auto dealers are savvy car buyers, and you should be too. Dealers won’t buy a car without an independent inspection, why should you? The experts, including Edmunds and Consumer Reports, also agree that an independent inspection is the best decision you can make when it comes to buying a used car. That’s why SureSale is so important. We’re an independent advocate -- on your side -- giving you the information you need to know about a vehicle’s past and present condition so you can make an informed purchase decision.
Build Trust with Facts – We Analyze Thousands of Vehicle Data Points
Everyone researches used cars like crazy, but all of that information doesn’t reduce our purchase anxiety or fear of buying the “wrong” car or a “lemon.” In fact, over 80% of used car shoppers tell us they wish they had a “mechanic friend” to help them during the buying process. That’s exactly why we created SureSale. As a third party, not affiliated with the dealership or car seller, we’re acting as your quality consultant throughout your used car buying journey. We give you the tools to have an honest discussion about the vehicle, with objective information, so you can build trust and buy with confidence.”
Know the Past, Present and Future Condition of Your Car
Many buyers rely on a vehicle’s history report as a measure of its quality, but the history report is just that – ancient history. It only tells you part of the story and doesn’t tell you anything about the vehicle’s current condition. We’ve solved this problem with our proprietary Factfile vehicle report. What’s a Factfile? Before we approve a car as a SureSale, we analyze thousands of data points about the car including a 170-point inspection, road test, and history check. These results are all clearly laid out in the Factfile, so you can review all the facts and make an informed buying decision.
