Inspections that can come right to your door!
If your vehicle no longer has any manufacturer’s comprehensive warranty remaining you can still get great extended warranty coverage — but we do require an inspection of the vehicle. 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. Our partner mechanics have convenience in mind and in many cases will be able to inspect your vehicle at home, work or even a shopping mall parking lot.

Certified mechanics perform a 147-point inspection which you will receive electronically. The inspection includes:
- Thorough inspection of the vehicle’s mechanical, cosmetic and electrical systems
- Identify existing conditions
- Identify potential safety and financial problems
- Wheels will be taken off, vehicle raised and then taken on a test drive
If your vehicle has an issue that would be covered under warranty you will need to get it repaired before you can purchase a warranty. This doesn’t apply to excluded items like tires, rims, body panels, etc. Our partner mechanics can also help with the repairs for you at the time of inspection.
