What is RedBook Inspect?

RedBook Inspect (RBI) is Australia's leading independent provider of vehicle inspection services. RBI provides inspections for both dealers and consumers all around the country. 

RedBook Inspect is a national service provider with a mobile, fixed site and remote technology inspections solution.

RedBook Inspect is the exclusive partner of carsales.com.au in the independent dealer/certified inspection segment.


How does it work?

If you subscribe to our RedBook Inspect certified program, we will send out our state manager to conduct an on-site inspection. This allows us to check over the dealership layout and ensure our inspection visits don't cause any interruptions to your business.

Once we have the layout, we set out a specific day to visit based on the frequency you choose to sign on for. You are charged solely on a day rate, so if we are able to inspect more than the allotted 15 cars per day/7-8 per half-day, your ROI increases significantly.

For each inspection, you will receive a detailed 120+ point report for you to advertise. If the vehicle does not achieve 4/5 stars or higher it will not be automatically published. These reported can be published online, although they will appear as inspected not certified.
