Your Appointment

Can the inspector arrange a new time with me personally?

Yes, in some instances we understand that things can change, and an inspector can’t hold an appointment at the time agreed initially. The inspector will contact you and the vendor to arrange a new time if you are happy to. If the new time suggested is not satisfactory, then inspector will contact us and we will cancel the booking for you free of charge.

Do the inspectors carry identification?

As a matter of courtesy, we do ask inspectors to carry a means of identification with them when visiting customers, to reassure customers who they are. This is not compulsory, but most of our inspectors are happy to do so.

The Inspector did not turn up, what can I do?

In the extremely unlikely event that this happens, please get in touch with us immediately and let this be our problem. Please contact us: CarExamer.com/contact-us

Should the vendor leave the keys to their vehicle with the inspector?

Where necessary, and if the inspector asks for the key, the vendor should consider leaving the keys with the inspector. The inspector might otherwise not be able to carry out his work as planned. Inspectors are insured with trade and public liability insurance.

Is the Inspector allowed to drive the vendor’s vehicle?

Every inspector has a trade insurance which allows them to road test any vehicle.


What happens if the inspector is late?

Unfortunately, it can sometimes happen that inspector is running late due to traffic or another job taking longer than scheduled. We always ask the inspectors on our platform to communicate with you and vendor directly should there be any issues.
