Documents check

Our agent will go through the registration documents. We will make sure that the seller has the legal right to sell the vehicle.

For EU clients we will check if the car has valid conformity code and can be easily registered to any EU country

Exterior check

We take a paint thickness reading from all around the car to reveal any repainted or repaired parts. This is the most efficient way to know if there has been any accidents in the history of the vehicle. Any current scratches, dents, loose or missing parts will be reported and photographed. The condition of the windshield and other windows is checked.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are ready to answer any of your questions by email or phone. Please check first if your question is already answered.

  • What will you check during the inspection?
  • At this moment we inspect any motorbikes, cars or vans (less than 3500 kg) historic to new ones. Later we are adding other types of vehicles and allow our agents to set prices for inspections of different vehicle types.

  • If you are a private person living within EU, you need to pay 24% Finnish VAT for any service we provide. This applies also to any company in Finland, since our HQ is located in Finland. Companies from other EU countries need to provide a valid VAT number to get the VAT removed from our services. Any private client or company from outside EU will not pay any VAT on our services.

  • We require our agents to schedule the inspection within one day. Each inspector will be reviewed for their rapidity in their communication and inspection job. Sometimes the seller doesn’t allow inspection immediately. Most often we are able to send you the inspection report within two working days. Some agents work even on Sundays for inspections of private owner’s cars.

  • Only our most experienced inspectors on the highest level (Certified Expert Partners = CEP) are allowed to help you in making a deal. This is for your own safety. If an another agent on lower level made the inspection, you can than hire one of our CEPs to close the deal. You will always buy the car from us based on the inspection report. We will make the deal 100% secure.

  • In EU car prices are ofter mentioned as “netto” without VAT and “brutto” with the local VAT (for example 19% in Germany or 24% in Finland). Vehicle is considered to be new in EU if you buy a vehicle that is registered less than 6 months ago or is driven less than 6000 km. For new vehicles you always need to pay VAT to the EU country where you register it. EU companies can buy a car from other EU country without the VAT and they will pay the VAT to the country where the car will be registered. Private persons are allowed to buy car from a company in other EU country by paying the VAT to the seller and based on the seller’s home country. In that case there is no need to pay VAT in the destination country. This way private persons will save money when they import car from other EU country with lower VAT percentage. Any client from outside of EU, company or private, will not pay VAT to EU. They can buy a car without VAT.

  • Some EU countries have other taxes added to the car price. In Finland and Portugal it is called car tax. In Netherlands or Denmark it is called luxury tax. Buyer from other country can apply to get this additional tax returned to them if the car is exported to any other country.

  • We have years of experience in identifying frauds. As part of our inspection process the agent will always go through number of checks to make sure the car is legitimate. You can be 100% secured when making a remote deal by selecting one of our Certified Expert Parteners and allowing us to make the car deal on your behalf. Our insurance will cover any damage caused by a fraud or a scam up to 200,000 €.

  • If you are not able to personally go and buy the car or you feel that you are not knowledgeable enough yourself to do checks on the seller to prevent frauds, you can always use one of our Certified Expert Partners (CEP) to close the deal. We only secure any payments of cars bought by our CEP. We are not responsible of any damage or harm caused by a deal done by yourself or even by the help of one of our lower level agents or based on any report our agent has done.

  • Remember that some damages can occur after the inspection. For damages that cost you more than 350 € to repair, and were undoubtedly on the vehicle during the inspection and should have been noticed by the inspector (did not appear later during the transport etc), we are willing to return the inspection payment. But we limit our responsibility to the maximum amount that was paid for the inspection. Read more on our terms and conditions.

  • You can pay a bit extra to get also the verbal vehicle assessment report. The agent or an experienced customer service representative will call you and you can go through the report on the phone. On the call you can also get advices on how to go forward if you want to buy and export the inspected vehicle.

  • We will always return the payment if we are not able to perform the inspection. This applies to any other service. You only pay for services we are able to deliver. By buying the pre-inspection history report you will be allowed to cancel the inspection up to 5 hours before the set inspection time and you will receive a full refund of the inspection and traveling fees you paid.

  • Agent will make any possible tests without the test-drive. We will always do our best to be able to make a test-drive with the vehicle. But sometimes it is not possible. Seller might deny the test-drive. Our report will still be out of great value, since our agent will normally spend 1-2 hours in inspecting the exterior, interior and equipment. Agent will also be able to listen to the engine and see if there is any excess exhaust smoke when throttle is pushed. We don’t return any payment if the agent can’t perform a test-drive.

  • Yes, we might be able to help you. You can ask for transportation prices by email

  • We have a really good coverage of agents in Europe. We are looking for new agents all the time and our network of agents is growing. We are aiming to be the place with most car inpector agents around the world.

Tomi Rantanen

Ceo & Founder

“How did I come up with the idea of InspectWise? I have been working in car import and export business from 2011 onward. I have seen and experienced how professional criminals have scammed honest and confident car buyers – me included.

My best friend bought a luxury Mercedes in 2012. It was stolen from Switzerland and cloned with VIN from another car. Police took the car. He lost all his savings and ended up having some car loan for a car that was seized. In 2015 I ended up paying for an almost new Audi Q7 to criminals. They had just taken the car for a test drive and fabricated the documents. In 2020 I noticed that Mercedes-Benz official dealer’s website was hacked and contact details were changed. The invoice I received by email looked professional, but the account number displayed wasn’t one that belongs to the dealer. These criminals were never caught by the police. They are executing new scams at the moment.

These are just three examples of criminal action I have seen. In 2021 I established InspectWise Ltd to make used car deals 100 % safe for car buyers. I am sure this new platform will become super popular even around the world. Please enroll as a car inspector or order a report. I am excited to work with you!”
