Many of us who have shopped for our dream car have no doubt been in this situation before: it’s located thousands of miles away, but you’ve spent years searching for it and you want it now. What do you do?
If traveling to inspect the car yourself or finding a friend or relative to do it for you isn’t possible, there are several companies that can. WeGoLook.com, for example, provides added peace of mind and prevents lot of headache by sending one of its more than 7,500 nation-wide “lookers” to verify, inspect, and photograph the car. A detailed report is sent to you to help make that final decision. Inspection orders are made on the WeGoLook.com website; A basic service costs $49 and includes a 15-minute, hands-on inspection, answers to your basic questions, 10 digital photos and a report.
Aside from cars, the company will also inspect boats, RVs, motorcycles, electronics and almost anything else worth inspecting off of Craigslist or eBay. WeGoLook.com will even save you from awkward dinners by checking out and providing a current photo of your blind dates. One downside to the company’s broad service, however, is there’s no guarantee that the “looker” assigned to your request will be a car expert, which means requests to check for orange peel, clutch wear or other overly-technical questions will likely not be possible. WeGoLook.com does provide upgrades such as custom inspections, additional photos, videos, and background checks. And for the truly paranoid, the company can also handle the shipping process to prevent a shady bait-and-switch situation.
