Two Major Announcements – iPhone App and Easy Vehicle Inspections – including an option for a third-party pre-sale inspection

15. August 2012 07:41

Good news for all of our members.

Our goal is to create the nation's best pre-owned car site, and one of the major ingredients to accomplish this goal is proper vehicle inspections. Properly disclosed vehicles make the experience much better for both buyers and sellers.  Buyers have the confidence to pay everything a car is worth, particularly if they are bidding from a long distance.  Sellers avoid adjustments and payment of roundtrip transport on unwinds.  So today we are announcing two ways to make this super easy and affordable for you.

1.     New iPhone app – Some of you want to self-disclose, and we have made this very easy with our new iPhone app.  Our new iPhone app allows you to post a vehicle directly from your iPhone, including all disclosures and photos.  Go to the iPhone App Store and search on “DealersForum” and download the app for free.  Although the new system is self-explanatory, we would be happy to send out an inspector to answer any questions you may have.

2.     Independent Third-Party Pre-Sale Inspections for only $22 - Many of you have requested independent third-party inspections, so this is what you get.  Our own impartial third-party inspectors will paint meter your car, check tire tread depth, disclose all damages, check the KBB book sheet for proper equipment, test drive (fresh trades), take up to 30 pictures and post your vehicles to our site.  Currently, we have inspectors servicing southern Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County and San Diego County.

If you would like to use the third-party inspection service, please contact your Account Executive, or when you go to add a car, just click the button "order inspection" and an inspector will contact you shortly. You can also send email to:

The bottom-line is that properly disclosed vehicles are critical to everyone having a great experience.

Let’s continue to build a great community of dealers interacting directly with each other.  As always, do not hesitate to give us any feedback.
