Independent car auction brand G3 Remarketing has announced the launch of a new 30-point check 'assured' programme.
Produced by the team’s NAMA-accredited inspectors, G3 Assured is the firm’s first mechanical inspection report and aims to deliver complete transparency surrounding the state of each auction lot.
A buyer will have 96 hours or 250 miles, whichever comes first, to contact G3 should they experience a misreported issue.
Joint director and co-founder, Matt Dale, said: “In today’s fast-paced and pressured motor industry, buyers are quite rightly seeking increased confidence in the quality of stock they’re procuring.
“We’ve therefore introduced a number of mechanisms to strengthen the calibre of our visual checks, but this mechanical assessment now offers even greater peace of mind for dealers.”
The news is not G3’s first inspection announcement for 2017. Following 18 months of in-house technical development and £150,000 of investment, G3 launched a new mobile inspection and asset management application – AVID – in the spring.
Utilising Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) technology, the vehicle appraisal system became the first of its kind to include video, audio descriptions and HD images.
It has since enabled inspectors to capture a more accurate assessment of a car’s true condition, using over 20 vehicle-specific 'splats'.
Dale added: “Because AVID was extremely well received, we wanted to take our approach to inspections that one step further.”
