The ACR pre-purchase inspection is a primarily visual inspection conducted by our team of experts before the vehicle is considered for purchase. Using our internal, proprietary rating system, the ACR team begins by inspecting a potential vehicle down in terms of body, trim, drive train, interior, and electrical components. Each category is broken down into sub-levels that rate specific components that are judges individually. These categories are totaled and an overall rating of the vehicle is established based on a 100-point scale, determining the value of the car as perceived by the ACR Team. While the pre-purchase inspection is primarily done visually, (generally in an auction setting where hands-on access to the car is limited) vehicles purchased privately are given an even more thorough inspection whenever possible.
The post-purchase inspection is done immediately after ACR officially acquires the vehicle, and before it is authorized to travel any distance. Every system and component on the vehicle is critically examined, and the ACR team determines a list of immediately recommended repairs and improvements.
