Get an Inspection and Get Covered
Has your manufacturer’s comprehensive warranty run out? No problem! You can still get extended warranty coverage — but we do need an inspection of the vehicle first. Inspections keep insurance premiums lower by eliminating pre-existing conditions from the equation. It also allows for the best and fastest claims service when something does happen. We have convenience in mind and often can arrange an inspection at your home, work, or even a mall parking lot.
How It Works:
Get a Warranty Quote
Before getting your inspection you need a warranty quote. The vehicle should be registered in the name of the person getting the inspection.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to get an inspection?
Insurance fraud is a real issue. We need to ensure that all vehicles we cover are safe to do so. Filtering out vehicle issues allows us to provide amazing claims service and lower pricing to all our customers.
Which vehicles need an inspection?
If your manufacturer’s full comprehensive warranty has expired (most are 3 years/60,000km or 4 years/80,000 km) you will need an inspection to buy a warranty. New vehicles still under warranty do not need inspections.
Why does the inspection need to be through Obvi?
Streamlining inspections through trusted partners provides consistency and makes our claims process more efficient. Unfortunately, some dealership inspections are not always thorough. They are often more focused on closing the vehicle sale.
Do I need a quote before getting an inspection?
Yes. Get a quote for your vehicle before booking your inspection so we can provide you with the best possible pricing and service.
Where can I get an inspection?
We are currently able to provide inspections in the greater municipal areas of:
Alberta – Edmonton, Red Deer, and Calgary.
British Columbia – Vancouver, the Lower Mainland/Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island, and Kelowna.
Manitoba – Winnipeg.
If I don’t live in one of the inspection areas could I still drive to one of those locations for an inspection?
Yes, it’s possible to go to these areas for a scheduled inspection. Please plan to determine a safe place to meet the mechanic.
What does the inspection include?
Certified mechanics perform a detailed multi-point inspection which you will receive electronically. The inspection includes:
– A thorough inspection of the vehicle’s mechanical, cosmetic and electrical systems
– Identify any existing conditions
– Identify potential safety problems
– Taken on a short test drive
What happens if the inspection finds an issue?
If your vehicle has an issue that would be covered under our warranty, you will need to get it repaired before buying a warranty. This doesn’t apply to excluded items such as tires, rims, or body panels. Our partner mechanics can also help with the repairs for you at the time of inspection.
