Protect Your Purchases

When it comes to purchasing vehicles, you don’t want any surprises. Purchase protection services help you avoid risk and offer different options to meet your needs. Whether you need a basic frame check or a full buy back guarantee, Manheim works with you to protect your investment.

Inspection Services

Manheim offers multiple inspection options, ranging from a basic Frame Check, to a Limited Powertrain Inspection, to a full Post-Sale Inspection. 

Post-Sale Inspection

A functional mechanical inspection of a vehicle’s major components which includes a 7-day or 14-day guarantee.* This service is offered for newer vehicles.

Limited Powertrain Inspection

A functional mechanical inspection focused on the powertrain, drivetrain, and structure which includes a 7-day guarantee.* This service is offered for older vehicles.

Flood Damage Check

It’s not always easy to spot flood damage, and often by the time you do, it’s too late. With Flood Damage Check, dealers can be confident that the vehicles they buy at auction are thoroughly checked for flood damage either before or after the sale.

  • It complements the updated NAAA Flood Damage Policy
  • It's ideal for dealers who feel they are unable or unqualified to inspect their vehicles in a timely fashion for evidence of potential flood damage
  • Take up to 30 days following date of purchase to identify and submit a flood damage claim
  • An in-lane Flood Damage Check vehicle sticker indicates that the vehicle has been checked and there is no evidence of flood damage.

Frame Check

Frame Check inspects the structure of a vehicle for damage and costs $85.

*For more information on inspection guarantees, check out the Sale Policies section of Marketplace Policies.
