Save yourself a headache

I’ve used SOS on 5 separate occasions. Norris has saved me from cracked frames and bent suspensions. Don’t trust the dealership inspections, the inspector works for the dealership,Norris works for you. There are some dealerships that won’t allow him on their lots because of what he might find. He called me after my last inspection and told me to go get the car before it gets away! The cost far outweighs what he will save you in repairs and surprises. Thank you Norris and Mike Steve

Horrible service

Guy came out to my house with a horrible attitude and snatched paperwork out of my hand. I sent him on his way. I would not recommend using this company horrible service!

Tj is a part time-car-flipper guy, who after setting an appointment to allow his car to be inspected, pretended he didn't know why I was there, then lied about selling the car to someone else the night before so the inspection would not take place (the car was still in front of his house). This is typical of a car seller who is dumping a horrible car or that has no title in their name. Tj sells cars on OfferUp and CraigsList his C# is 720-234-9932 ~ BEWARE~ BTW, there was no "paperwork" it was just a business card.

Excellent!

I have used Norris 4 times. I bought 2 vehicles and was kept from being disappointed 2 other times. Well worth the fee! The vehicle report is in depth and covers everything.

Very Helpful

Norris at SOS Inspections was great to work with. Very fast appointment, on time, very thorough, and presented a professional report. He also took the time to walk me through his report and explain the importance of things that he caught. Money well spent.

S.O.S Inspections

I dd not feel this company was reliable. They were very polite but not professional. I called on a Saturday to make an appointment for the following Monday and it was all over the news that it would snow Monday, I knew this but still needed the inspection and didn't think it would be a problem. Time was taken off work to meet up with s.o.s on the morning of the meeting we received a call cancelling due to snow. I feel like letting me know when I made the appointment that it could be cancelled due to snow would have been professional, then I could have made a decision then to make the appointment on a different day and not miss the time from work. We live in Colorado so to cancel for a light snow is not reliability to me.

Weather can and often does change faster than the forecast. A cancellation due to snow or bad weather is not unusual for a service that takes place outdoors. Our sensitive electronic equipment that costs many thousands of dollars has a range of operating temperatures. We choose not to go below the suggested operating temp (32 degrees) of our equipment so as to protect our investment. At least we called you in a timely fashion so you could get on with your day.

Would not use

This man comes to my house to inspect a car I am selling to a gentleman in RI,[He was hired over the internet] This is an expensive Porsche 993. He is not knowledgeable of this car at all.He gave the car a fair rating, car is good to excellent anywhere. He advised my customer that he was unable to drive the car which is not true. I was there the entire time he was trying to find fault with the car and he never asked or said lets road test.He never asked for books or records, any novice know that is the first question on a Porsche. His qualification are ASE certified, there is one at every gas station,Would you take your $50,000 car to Conoco for Service?? Funny car just had a PPI at the best Porsche garage in Denver and passed with flying colors....

Mr. Murphy operates an illegal salvage, repair and resale operation out of his home. He was also selling a car for which he did not hold title (skip title). Of course he is upset when I discovered that the so called "excellent condition" car he was selling had previously been wrecked. The buyer was happy with the report and grateful for the effort.

SOS was a godsend

I live in Atlanta and flew to Denver to purchase an older used car for my niece who lives there. We had set a $2500 budget and decided the best route to go would be Craigslist. I have no mechanical knowledge about cars and looked for a mobile inspection service with good reviews. I called SOS several days before arriving in Denver and spoke with Mike to be sure they would be able to respond promptly over a weekend. Once in Denver, I actually ended up having SOS inspect a couple of Craigslist cars. The first one my niece was interested in ended up having too many undisclosed and costly issues. Because of Norris' report we nixed that one quickly. The second car inspected much better, although it was 9 years older. It was a 1996 Camry with 162k miles. There was an undisclosed power steering leak that Norris estimated would cost $500-600 to repair. With that information we were able to negotiate the price down from $2500 to $2000. It was a daunting task to find a reliable older used car in a short 48 hour window, but we did. Mike and Norris communicated well with us by phone and email and I feel confident my niece has a solid vehicle that will last her at least a few years. I highly recommend SOS, their fee is money well spent.

Best Car Inspection

This man gave a detailed report and pointed out that a dealership did not properly disclose information they should have! With the visual evidence provided we were able to recover $500 in damages from the dealership!

Amazing service! Thank you so much for the information. I sounded so smart going into the shop to seek repairs.

Norris was able to customize his report to focus on the items that were of concern to us, (mechanical components) and lots of pictures. He prepared a well documented report . The price is right and way better then waiting at a shop with a paranoid seller. I will definitely be using his services again as he is well credentialed and thorough.
