AiM Launches National Inspection Program for Pre-Owned Vehicles

Nov. 15, 2017
AiM has more than 1,400 full-time vehicle inspectors operate throughout the U.S., enabling AiM to address more than 10 million vehicles bought and sold in the peer-to-peer market.

Nov. 15, 2017—Alliance Inspection Management (AiM), a vehicle inspection company that evaluates more than 13 million auto inspections annually, launched for vehicle buyers and sellers.

The vehicle inspection service platform provides a way to understand the real condition of a car or truck located in the U.S. before making a purchase or listing it for sale. offers tiered inspection solutions for used vehicle shoppers and sellers through four product offerings: AiM Preferred, AiM Plus, AiM Premier and AiM Commercial.

Each package includes

  • A 150-point inspection
  • Bumper-to-bumper interior and exterior evaluation
  • A test drive by a professional inspector
  • 15 or more photos documenting condition
  • Online reporting and much more

Vehicle history reports and fluid testing are included in several packages

All inspection products include a condition report with an “A” to “F” letter grade so buyers can quickly make informed decisions and sellers can list their vehicles with confidence.

“One of the biggest concerns when purchasing a pre-owned vehicle are underlying issues that might go unnoticed,” said AiM senior vice president of sales and marketing Eric Widmer. “Prospective vehicle buyers can use our services to ensure these items get identified before they pay for the car. It is also a good practice for people selling cars to be proactive and get a third-party inspection as this creates a trustworthy sales experience for both parties. With used car sales at an all-time high, we’ve launched to provide a solution for used car shoppers that want to have an independent verification of the condition of a car before making the purchase and sellers who want to address items before they list their vehicle for sale.”

Kelley Blue Book launched a pilot of the program to help car sellers be more transparent with their listings and increase the likelihood to sell their cars faster.

From a buyer’s perspective, there will be more transparency into the vehicle with timely information on the true condition of a vehicle, which is at the cornerstone of Kelley Blue Book’s efforts to help buyers make the best possible purchase decision.

The pilot will take place in several major markets, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and others. inspections use the company’s proprietary software, hardware and training to ensure consistent and accurate condition reports. 

AiM’s more than 1,400 full-time vehicle inspectors operate throughout the U.S., enabling AiM to address the more than 10 million vehicles bought and sold in the peer-to-peer market.
