      About Us

The Auto Detectives were founded in 1995 by Mark J.Allen.(Mark's bio-click here) They are an Automobile and R/V inspection company, and were created to protect used car buyers in the United States. They are a mobile service and would send one of their A.S.E. Certified Master Inspectors out to a remote location to perform a 201-point inspection. Their inspection includes checking inside to make sure all the equipment is operational. They make a determination if the mileage is correct and matches the condition of the vehicle during their odometer rollback check. The vehicle is then checked for evidence of flood damage. They check the exterior for evidence of collision damage repairs or prior repaint.
They check the undercarriage for rust, frame damage or external fluid leaks. All the mechanical components are checked and the vehicle is taken for an extensive test drive. They will perform the inspection at any remote location, making this a very convenient and affordable service available by appointment 7 days a week starting at $129.95 - $199.95 (classic & luxury cars slightly higher).

The Auto Detectives founder, Mark Allen, now performs all inspections personally in Arizona. However, his primary focus now is working with law firms and government entities as a legal expert witness. His main areas of expertise include Automotive Cause of Failure, Appraised Value, and Industry Standards and Practices. His unique skill set, training, and experience bring a valuable perspective to many automotive industry issues. And with his experience in public speaking and behind the microphone (Weekly Wheels Radio), he is very comfortable and effective during depositions and trial testimony.
