The CARO inspection is a comprehensive review of any year, make and model vehicle. There are two types of inspection available. Pre-sale auto inspection which all begin with a thorough 75-point inspection to evaluate exterior, interior, frame and engine compartment condition to 150 points pre-sale auto inspection, we also offer Safety inspection for dealers and auctions. The professional CARO inspector concludes with an optional test drive where the inspector rides along with the owner of the vehicle and observes any issues related to the vehicle. Caro can also provide detailed history for the vehicle and up to 40 photos.
