“1st vehicle inspected by Kiwiz: not recommended by the expert because the brake is in poor condition. 2nd car inspected: a positive expert opinion, with the estimate of maintenance for the coming years. I avoided a car that would have cost me more than an arm ... Thank you! "

“I called on Kiwiz to inspect a vehicle. The dealership he was in gave me a nasty blow in the middle of the inspection by telling me that I had to buy the vehicle the same day or it left someone else. I obviously refused but paid for an inspection for nothing. Kiwiz couldn't reimburse me because the inspector had come and started. And this is completely normal. But they gave me a nice gesture of goodwill and offered me a 50% discount on my next inspection. In the end, with very valuable advice and a great follow-up, I found my car thanks to their inspection. I highly recommend. "

“I really appreciated the services offered by Kiwiz. The service that helps find good ads is free. We can ask our questions to the experts by chat, and I always had a complete answer in less than 24 hours, always free! I subscribed to the insurance with their comparator. Rather simple but you have to allow 48 hours between the submission and the final subscription. What I liked the most is the inspection, especially the simplicity of the thing. Inspector Kiwiz takes care of organizing the meeting with the seller and we receive the report when it's over. I was pleasantly surprised at the price negotiated by kiwiz and bought the car, a 2003 Subaru Legacy that runs A1. I highly recommend Kiwiz to buy your car. You will not be disappointed."

Car enthusiasts who have become experts over time. These can be mechanics or engineers who have worked in the automotive industry for many years. Our recruitment and training processes are strict to ensure the inspector's good automotive and mechanical knowledge, as well as his thoroughness in carrying out the mandate.

The most complete verification on the market, which includes: a mechanical report, a functional report, a road test, the expert's final opinion, the list of potential repairs to be planned, and a negotiation.
An inspection with all the necessary and recommended points to check before a purchase!

Yes ! Our inspection is one of the most complete in Canada. It allows you to subscribe to an extended warranty with our partner GVC Garantie (thanks to our volume we have negotiated the best price for you: you won't find cheaper elsewhere 🙌)

No you don't need to! The inspector meets directly with the owner (individual or concessionaire) and gives you a debrief with a complete and detailed digital report after the inspection.

The inspection lasts 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes and the report will be sent to you immediately once an internal audit has been done to ensure that it is complete and carried out rigorously. 

Yes! A mechanical inspection is recommended when purchasing between individuals and at a dealership. Kiwiz offers total objectivity, unlike some dealers who have no qualms about hiding certain defaults in order to sell better.

Our inspectors are responsive and once your request is received, we will send you the report within 48 hours. However, it may happen that the individual or the dealer is not available within 48 hours, which would extend the time. We are unfortunately out of control of these situations and we disclaim this responsibility. We do everything to ensure that the report is received within 48 hours!

XNUMX. You book your inspection here

2. An inspector chooses the mandate and sets aside a time with the owner for the inspection.

3. Within 48 hours, you will receive the complete report by email

If the vehicle has been sold in the meantime : Kiwiz gives you a credit for an upcoming inspection. If you prefer a refund, it is possible, subject to a $30 processing fee.

In case the seller does not want Kiwiz to come and inspect the vehicle : this is a bad sign because it is likely that the vehicle has defects that the seller wants to hide. We therefore advise you to turn to another vehicle. 
Be careful, it's up to you to make sure beforehand that the seller agrees that you have a third-party inspection done.
You will still be able to obtain a Kiwiz credit on your next inspection. 

Just contact us by chat to get the price. 

In order to provide a responsive service, it is possible to complete the inspection request form even before receiving the quote. We will then contact you to inform you of the price. If you have specific requests (example: cylinder compression test), please let us know directly in the request form.


If the price is not up to your expectations, a refund can be issued. Only minimal transaction fees will not be refunded (Stripe.com)

Inspecting the floor of a car is not only possible when it is 7 feet high!

It is quite possible to inspect a car without lifting it onto a bridge.
Inspectors from the Kiwiz network are used to bending down to analyze vehicle floors.
A photo of the floor is included in all of our inspection reports.

Just like the shocks which are visually inspected before being rigorously tested during the road test. For vehicles with low ground clearance (mainly luxury sports vehicles), we can ask the inspector to use ramps to raise the vehicle.
This is one of the reasons why exotic vehicle inspections require a quote. Each request is different and must be treated in a personalized way.
