Auto Sales Walkaround

What is a walkaround and why do I need one?

Watch: All about the walkaround

A walkaround is an inspection visit from an Autozen expert at a time and place that is safe and convenient for you. They will take photos and gather your car's details plus they'll take it for a quick test drive. 

This is an important step that allows us to create a comprehensive listing that is an accurate representation of your unique car. 

Completing the in-person walkaround will allow us to showcase your car to our large network of buyers that trust our thorough process and will provide offers with the same confidence as if they were seeing your vehicle themselves. This investment by Autozen is what makes our service more valuable than an online instant cash offer or services that ask you to take your own pictures and upload them.

Autozen is your go-to destination for an unbeatable auto sales walkaround experience. Our expert team ensures a comprehensive walkaround of every vehicle, providing you with the insights you need to make an informed choice. Discover the ultimate walkaround auto experience at Autozen today!

What happens at a walkaround?
During your scheduled walkaround, an Autozen Expert will simply “look over” your vehicle, at the location of your choice! Whether in front of your home or at a pre-set location, once completed, you will feel safe, secure and confident in the showing of your vehicle. The entire process should only take 45 minutes. And keep in mind, the vehicle must be insured and drivable, as we require a short, 5-minute test drive.
What you can expect:

You’ll receive a notification when your friendly Autozen Expert is on their way, one hour before their arrival. You can even track their location. Once they arrive, there isn’t much you have to worry about. All you need to do is hand your keys to the inspector and go on with your day!

Upon meeting your Autozen expert they will:
  • Take the keys to the car
  • Ask you about any major things to disclose
  • Complete the inspection
  • Hand you an FAQ sheet
  • The visit will last approximately 30-45 minutes
Your Autozen expert is professionally certified to perform a 150-point driveway inspection, they’ll do a visual check of everything and take photos of your vehicle (they will not hoist up your car or remove any parts). This helps to build a true profile of your vehicle.  With their expertise, you can rest easy knowing that your vehicle will be showcased in its best light.


What your Autozen expert does:

  • Takes photos of the inside & outside of your car
  • Notes your vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • Inspects the outside, inside and all surfaces; tests buttons and knobs to make sure everything works such as the sunroof, heated seats etc.
  • Investigates any scratches and use a tool to check the depth
  • Takes a 5-minute test drive:
    • Checks the car's performance
    • Checks steering alignment
    • Checks AC/Heat
  • Completes an OBD2 Scan - Not applicable for Electric Vehicles:
    • This industry-standard device is inserted and connects via Bluetooth
    • It scans the vehicle and provides us with any failure codes and a health report in PDF format.
    • It’s important to note that this step is only used to scan information, the OBD2 device does not make any changes to your vehicle.
  • Looks under the hood: 
    • Tests the battery when accessible
    • Checks oil
    • Looks for leaks
    • Completes other visual checks
  • Checks tire treads and brake pads
  • Uploads your car's completed profile to the Autozen platform
  • Enters your car into the first available auction (within 1-2 business days)

What tires are needed? Are winter tires necessary? 

During the inspection process, we will take your vehicle for a test drive. If conditions are snowy or icy your car must have winter tires installed. However, please have your regular tires close by so we can take photos of all tire sets that will be sold with your car.

Once you have an accepted offer from Autozen, winter tires are no longer necessary. However, please have all sets of tires ready and available to be picked up.
