Since its launch in the country last year, Premium Warranty Services Philippines, Inc. (PWSPI) has inspected more than 2,000 vehicles from over 150 accredited secondhand car dealers across the nation.
This in line with the company’s goal to elevate the used car buying experience and help consumers find quality cars. Premium Warranty is now launching another service aimed at assisting those buying from private sellers by making its renowned 188-point vehicle inspection available to the general public.
Premium Inspection is for customers who intend to purchase a secondhand vehicle from a private seller, be it a relative, acquaintance or just someone they met through an online classifieds website. To learn more about the vehicle’s real condition, buyers can have the vehicle checked by one of PWSPI’s trained surveyors so they can remove guesswork and minimize risks before making a purchase.
Through the on-demand service, PWSPI will deploy a mobile surveyor to the vehicle’s location upon the customer’s request. The inspection will take approximately 45 minutes to complete on-site. The check covers the body, exterior, interior, engine and undercarriage. The thorough evaluation process also uses specialized tools to test the on-board devices (OBD), battery and alternator to look for hidden faults. Paint thickness and subframes are carefully scrutinized to find any signs of previous repair, accidents or flooding, all of which are crucial details that need to be considered when purchasing a secondhand vehicle.
Once the assessment is complete, PWSPI’s surveyor will discuss any noteworthy findings with the customer, explaining to them parts that have passed inspection and identifying areas that may need attention. A complete inspection report will also be available for download online after 24 hours.
Buyers can also rest assured that all PWSPI surveyors are fully vaccinated and adhere to strict health and safety protocols.
“We understand the plight of the typical car buyer in search of quality used cars. With so many available options, it’s often difficult to tell a good car from a bad one. That’s why some rely on a relative, friends or a mechanic to help them check the vehicle they intend to buy. Let PWSPI be that trusted expert that buyers can depend on to give an honest assessment and sound advice on the used car they’re buying or looking to buy. Our goal is to give buyers peace of mind and confidence with their purchase through Premium Inspection,” said Koji Kasahara, president of PWSPI.
Private sellers can likewise avail of Premium Inspection and have their inventory checked beforehand. The inspection report and PWSPI’s certification give them more credibility as a seller and improve their chances of selling a vehicle since they are fully transparent on the car’s condition.
Premium Inspection is applicable to any type of vehicle regardless of brand, model, type, age or mileage. It can now be booked online through PWSPI’s website or Facebook page. The on-demand service is available from Mondays to Saturdays during regular work hours and can be deployed to any point in Metro Manila and select parts of Bulacan, Rizal and Calabarzon. The service can be availed for a minimal fee of Php2,600 paid via bank deposit or online channels.
