The inspections module allows users to create, view, edit, and/or close inspection requests on vehicles. These can be Post-Sale Inspections, Pre-Sale Certifications, etc. Additionally, you can configure the type of inspection you typically complete. This module is especially helpful with certifications or requirements set by specific sellers.
For example: When a seller requires a specific type of inspection to be completed on their units, you can set the type of inspection, inspect the vehicle, and charge the seller for the inspection if applicable. This will certify the vehicle as inspected and ensure that no arbitrations can be claimed unless a buyer observes something arbitrable that was missed.

Creating New Inspections

If the unit is assigned to a lot number, the sale date and lot number will be prefilled automatically. Select the Inspection you wish to complete, who is completing the inspection, and then, who requested the inspection. Add any inspection notes that pertain to the inspection, and click save.
Above the left navigational panel, there are filters available that make reviewing inspections much easier to manager. By selecting the inspection status, only those matching the filter will be show in the table below.
When editing an inspection, you can complete an official condition report within the Unit Information section, using the Condition tab. All inspections open a condition report ID by default but will be blank until filled out.
For more information on Condition Reports, please see the Condition Reports article.
Inspections can be closed by viewing the Details section of the inspection, under the Sales Order Info tab. At the bottom, click "New Update" and select the option that you wish:
