When completing an online transaction, an inspection is a prudent measure to put both parties at ease.


Whether you arrange a third-party inspection with your family mechanic or trusted industry experts like, vehicle inspections can be a life saver. If an on-site inspection isn’t in the cards, you can easily pull a vehicle history report and check VIN numbers against things like flood damage or salvaged titles.

Antiques, Fine Art & Collectables

When appraising the condition of collectables and art, the ideal would be to bring in an industry expert to inspect the items in person. If on-site inspection isn’t an option, be sure to provide or ask for a certificate of authenticity. Such a certificate will describe such details as the item’s country of origin, date of production and whether it’s an original or a reproduction.


To avoid fraud, it is common for sellers to send jewelry to buyers through a verification service. These companies verify the item sent from the seller and compare anything sent back from the buyer against the company’s original record. You may want to consult with a local jeweler or your preferred shipper for more information about these types of services.
