|Pittsburgh Vehicle Pre-Purchase Inspections|
David in Germany - 1971 Volvo 1800E
I have worked with 6 companies to inspect 7 vintage cars I purchased and not one compares to Pittsburgh Vehicle PPI. Brian spent time with me on the phone to review every detail to make certain I understood his service versus others. My initial thought was how different can the service really be. Simply stated, like night and day. Brian is professional, sends proper quotes and adheres to his commitment. His report was extensive, pictures of every aspect of the car were clear and accurate with the description. His cost was extremely fair. The dealer I purchased the car from said to me he has never seen someone take the time Brian took to go through the car. Its a pleasure to write this. I bought the car and it is being shipped to Germany next week. I give Brian 5 Stars out of 5.
Tony in California - 1958 Jaguar XK150
I had an excellent experience with Brian at PVPPI in the evaluation of the condition of a vintage Jaguar. Brian was attentive and timely in all of our dealings on the car, and provided a detailed and objective report with many pictures which were invaluable in deciding not to purchase the car.
Jenny in Pennsylvania - 2011 Nissan Quest
We used the services of PVPPI when purchasing a used minivan. Brian was a pleasure to work with. We found him to be honest, professional and true to his word. Brian went out of his way to ensure we were informed and educated during the entire inspection process. His report was valuable and thorough. I highly recommend Brian and PVPPI!
Josh in Texas - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car
We used Pittsburgh Vehicle PPI for an unrestored 1969 Camaro. They did a wonderful job of accurately representing the condition of the car, and for a very reasonable fee, verified the numbers matching claim made by the seller. They went above and beyond my expectations, including returning my calls after hours. The car purchase was completed based on their confirmation of the seller's claims, and upon arrival to Texas, we found the car to be exactly as described by Pittsburgh Vehicle PPI. I would highly recommend Brian and his company to anyone purchasing a vehicle.
Alan in Illinois - 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T
Thank you for your professionalism and thorough inspection of a vehicle I had considered buying. Your inspection revealed several flaws that were not disclosed by the seller and additional red flags were raised by your point by point analysis. Your service saved me from what would likely have been a very disappointing purchase.
George in Canada - 2011 BMW 550
I found Brian's company online and contacted him for his services for a 2011 550ix BMW I was purchasing located in Pittsburgh. He was very courteous to deal with on the phone and was able to review the vehicle within a couple of days of me contacting him. He sent me 40 plus photos of the vehicle and did a thorough inspection which he documented and sent me. He then arranged to have a call with me to give me his observations on the vehicle which allowed me to negotiate with the dealer to fix some minor scuffs that were on the vehicle. His service paid for itself many times over and I would recommend anyone who is remotely purchasing a vehicle to use Brian's services. Brian, thank you so much for your help. It was a great experience dealing with you!!!
Earl in Nevada - 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
After locating a 1957 Chevy for sale in Pittsburgh I contacted PVPPI for a pre-purchase inspection. Brian wasted no time in contacting the owner and inspecting the vehicle. Using the 84 pictures he took, we had a very thorough discussion of the condition of the vehicle. A pre-purchase inspection is a must, and I'm glad I found a trustworthy professional like Brian at PVPPI to do it for me.
Robert in Virginia - 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass
I was looking to purchase a car in Pittsburgh but my schedule did not allow me the opportunity to inspect the car. I saw Brian's website and he was actually pretty close to where the vehicle was located. He did a great job and he actually help me save a lot of money and keep from making a big mistake. I would definitely recommend his services. Once he does the report and takes the pictures, you can call him and he will go through the report with you. Pay him and save thousands.
Qasim in New York - 2010 Audi R8
Living in New York and finding my $100K Dream Car in Pittsburgh was how it all began when I started searching for the perfect Audi R8. When I finally found it, I needed to make sure it was thoroughly reviewed, inspected, and driven by an expert with extensive experience prior to finalizing the deal. Since I was not local to the area, I definitely required a used car inspection. Originally I tried to contact other online services that claim to offer PPI (Pre Purchase Inspections), however they gave me the run around, and took my credit card payment right away without even setting up a punctual appointment time and clearly stated I would not be able to speak to the inspector, nor would they provide the credentials and experience of the inspector which made me very worried. Eventually I cancelled their service, and searched for a PPI which was local to the Pittsburgh area. I immediately came across the Pittsburgh Vehicle Pre-Purchase Inspection website and contacted the owner Brian. I explained my situation and he was able to accommodate my particular needs and carry out a full inspection with nearly 50+ photos within less than 24 hours time. Also included was a complete worksheet indicating what exactly was inspected and the condition of each inspected item. My particular vehicle was a Certified Pre-Owned Exotic Car. Brian went above and beyond the call of duty to obtain the full Audi 300+ point checklist to make sure that everything was in order. In addition to this service he actually goes over the inspection verbally with you, so that you are fully aware of the cars condition. You have the opportunity to ask any and all questions you wish to do so at this time. His services definitely gave me the peace of mind I needed before spending over 100K dollars to buy a car over the phone I had not even seen. After having the car for about a month now, I definitely think the best investment I made was to hire Brian to look at the vehicle before I purchased it. In fact I flew in from NYC to pick up the car and drive it back. When I got to the dealer, I wrote the check and drove out, with full confidence knowing that Brian had already thoroughly inspected the vehicle. This service is strongly recommended without reservation. Thanks Brian.
