We go look inspections

Bought a bronco on eBay and used the “we go look “ button to schedule a inspection. 2 pm next day had my report and saw all I needed. Not a bad investment for peace of mind. Think I may sign up with them to do occasional checks. My new ride

Did they drive the Bronco or just take pictures? Also, did they check VIN on frame?

"Photos of the vehicle were taken to the best of abilities given it's location."

I guess the inspector did not have the ability to kneel, stoop or get under the vehicle.

Can you request certain pics?

Pretty neat there is a service like this, but my skeptical, pessimistic side (which always seems to surface) says there is room for improvement.

"Front Interior View from Driver Side" is clearly taken from passenger side!

The car is being stored in a garage and could not open door due to the VW bus. The owner is not on site so I needed a confirmation of vehicle. Title and registration were in vehicle and pictures were supplied. I am in Ga and wanted to insure as much was on up and up. The internet articles on it Project buckshot were also a lot of info.

That is a great truck (and really nice seller). I was very close to buying it; but, wife (wisely) talked me into shopping for something a bit more family friendly.

I would love to know what you paid for it (for a point of reference)??? CA prices are insane.

A few years ago a member posted about his experience hiring a 'professional classic car inspector' to look at a Bronco that he wanted to buy.
After looking at the Bronco the inspector looked at the buyer and told him that he had no idea what to look at or for on a Bronco.

Still charged him the fee though.

... I've got skills, ingenuity and no regard for maintaining any kind of historical preservation or authenticity...My Dad called that sick and wrong

I hired a guy in Southern California. It was under $200 and I got a great report with pics everywhere, a drive, etc. Can refer if someone messages me.

That's a neat service. Makes sense that something like that exists. Picture quality could be better for sure, but you do get a good idea of what the overall condition is.

Nice bronco as well!!
