Commercial Vehicle Appraisals

Our expert team of inspectors provide unbiased, independent appraisals of thousands of commercial vehicles in North America each year.

Our Commercial Vehicle Services team provides a variety of inspections and appraisals for several industries, including:

  • Trade-In and Off-Lease - An independent inspection aids manufacturers and finance companies take back only units meeting trade terms.
  • Repossessed Vehicle Reports - An assessment of condition provides the necessary information to determine the most effective method to re-market inventory.
  • Pre-sale Inspections - Used vehicle buyers same time and money deploying a DEKRA inspector to perform a full inspection of a vehicle under purchase consideration. Our in-depth report and photographs often provide more information than gained by a personal visit.
  • Online Auction Verification - An independent third party report is proven to increase bidding activity in online auctions, often paying for the cost of the inspection many times over.

Choice of Comprehensive and Limited Reports

Our typical inspection and appraisal includes a comprehensive three-page detailed report of the specifications and condition of the vehicle including over a dozen photographs. For those on a tight budget, we also offer a limited inspection and report with fewer photographs and checkpoints.

Both our comprehensive and limited inspections are completed by an experienced DEKRA commercial vehicle inspector trained to detect actual and potential problems within a vehicle.

Our network is poised to respond to requests quickly, and we are committed to complete the inspection report promptly after the inspection is completed, often in less than a week from initial contact.

Oil Analysis

An optional oil analysis is an inexpensive tool to detect potential engine problems, and can be arranged to be sampled simultaneously with the on-location inspection.

Desktop Appraisals

DEKRA provides data-only appraisals of used commercial vehicles by leveraging our subscriptions with Kelley Blue Book and NADA (National Automobile Dealers Association) Guidebooks to provide an inexpensive snapshot of a vehicle's value.

DEKRA also provides CARFAX Vehicle History Reports independently or combined with our on-location inspection service.

Resale Services

DEKRA also provides resale services to connect sellers with brokers and auction outlets, leveraging the impartiality of our inspection services to ensure both buyer and seller are satisfied with the transaction.
