Phoenix, May 28, 2013 – Road Ready Inspections™, a leading nationally recognized, independent pre-purchase inspection program for classic cars, announced today they have partnered with Leake Auction Company, one of the first car auctions in the country, to provide pre-purchase inspections for vehicles going across the block June 7-9 in Tulsa, OK. Pre-purchase inspection package options will be available for onsite bidders, telephone bidders and consignors.
"We are excited to be working with Leake to provide their bidders and consignors with pre-purchase inspection options," said Roger Falcione, President and CEO of Road Ready Certified. "Bidders can get the detailed vehicle information they need to bid with confidence and consignors can give their cars that extra boost to stand out from the crowd."
Bidders will have the opportunity to schedule an inspection to be performed prior to the auction. The inspection report will include the results of a multi-point mechanical and visual inspection and test drive, plus vehicle photos and inspector notes. Bidders also have the option to have a vehicle inspected onsite. The onsite inspections will not include a test drive or vehicle photos. Telephone bidders should contact their Leake representative for additional options.
Vehicle consignors can also have their vehicle inspected prior to the auction or onsite. The consignor package includes the inspection report plus onsite sales materials. Consignors may offer the inspection report to potential bidders to answer questions about the condition of the vehicle.
"Road Ready Inspections is the next step in educating and protecting car buyers before buying a vehicle," said Richard Sevenoaks, President of Leake Auction Company. "Buyers need to know what they are buying into, especially with classic cars. This is the best opportunity to have the vehicle they are interested in checked out by an expert."
