Get A Buyer’s or Seller’s Report
If you are selling a classic car of any age, what better way to back up its condition and presentation than with a Classic Friendly Ltd Buyer’s or Seller’s Report?
The report incorporates the full Classic Friendly Safety Inspection, but then goes much further, taking a look at trim and upholstery, brightwork, modifications and paint condition.
The survey also looks at paint thickness, which can be a handy indicator when looking for evidence of intensive filler work, which may indicate that not all is what it seems beneath the surface.
Wherever possible, oil pressure is checked with an external gauge and a cylinder compression check is also undertaken.
Tests are also conducted on fluids, such as coolant and brake fluid, giving a greater indication of underlying vehicle condition and maintenance.
Classic Friendly Ltd reports can be a particularly useful tool when looking to purchase a classic car too. An expert will inspect the vehicle impartially, whether at the garage itself, or even where the car is located, subject to safe and suitable conditions in which to do so.
What to do next
Use our approved garage list to find your nearest Classic Friendly Approved Facility.
You will then need to contact them and book an inspection. Your chosen garage will require your vehicle details and email address when making the appointment.
When the garage has completed the inspection on your vehicle the results will be logged onto the Classic Friendly website. You will be presented with a Classic Friendly inspection certificate. This will provide you with a summary of the inspection results and the unique certificate number. The full report will be available for you to view and print on the Classic Friendly website. This will be available to you by way of a link attached to an email sent to you from Classic Friendly, inviting you to open your own account with Classic friendly. Once you have registered with Classic Friendly you will be able to access all the inspection reports you have had carried out with any Classic Friendly garage.
You will be able to have multiple vehicles on your account and will be able to build up a comprehensive history for all your vehicles. There is also the option for you to add pictures to your vehicles history.
Another benefit of being registered with Classic Friendly is that, as the owner of the inspected vehicle you can also invite a third party to view any of your vehicle inspections or history. This is particularly useful for Insurance companies and prospective buyers. After the initial Classic Friendly inspection, all these extra benefits are at NO extra cost
