“I was really impressed by [the inspector's] thoroughness and his close attention to the issues I asked him to check out. Dave made me feel that he was inspecting the BMW as closely as he would inspect a car for himself or a family member. Based on his inspection, I decided to buy the car!” – Greg, a BMW buyer.
“Thanks to Bryan [a Jewel or Jalopy inspector], I didn’t make an expensive mistake. I got a beautiful Miata at a great price, and I owe it all to Jewel or Jalopy.” – Kurt, a Miata buyer.
