The Auto Detectives
(www.auto-detectives.com), an Automobile
and R/V inspection company, was
created in 1995 to protect used
car buyers in the United States. They are a mobile
service and now, the founder of The Auto
Allen, personally performs all the
Arizona. He will go out to a remote
location to perform a 201-point inspection.
The inspection includes checking inside to
make sure all the equipment is operational. He
will make a determination if the mileage is
correct and matches the condition of the
vehicle during the odometer rollback
check. The vehicle is then checked for
evidence of flood damage. He checks
the exterior for evidence of collision
damage repairs or prior repaint.
The undercarriage is checked for rust,
frame damage or external fluid leaks.
All the mechanical components are
checked and the vehicle is taken for an
extensive test drive. Mr Allen 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 only $129.95 - $199.95 (luxury and
classic vehicles slightly higher). For all
other prices please see the Pricing
What is the difference
between The Auto Detectives inspection and the
inspection companies who may be less expensive
companies usually due everything online and
get to talk to a live person, especially
not to the inspector who actually
looked at your car! You get a report with
online and have to email questions back and wait
for a response. Do you really need 30
more photos after you have probably seen hundreds
posted with the sales ad already?
for your questions to be answered after trying
to make sense of the report can get very frustrating!

directly to the person who inspected
your vehicle! And that person, Mark Allen,
happens to be an automotive expert with over 35 years
experience in the business! You can review his
certifications, and credentials
on the website, so you know you have a qualified
individual inspecting your potential purchase

other guys let you speak directly to
the inspector? Probably Not! . . .Do you get
to review the inspectors credentials to see if
he is qualified? . . .Probably Not!

inspection companies hire just about anybody
who has some kind of automotive experience and
is willing to work cheap so they can still make a
profit on the inspection! The are
banking on quantity, not quality.

who may have experience with the mechanical
components of a vehicle, but very few know
anything about body and paint issues, spotting
frame damage, odometer
issues, and flood
damage. You want to know if your
vehicle was ever in a wreck, don't you? . . .If it
has been repainted?
. . .If it has frame damage? . . .Correct mileage? .

Allen, has documented experience and
training with all these issues! In fact, he is
