eBay Motors and WeGoLook Partner to Provide Onsite Inspections for Vehicles

By: eBay News Team

Now eBay sellers can improve buyer confidence in vehicle transactions with WeGoLook’s on-site inspections.

With shoppers’ trust at the forefront, eBay has continued to focus on improving the selling and buying experience. Underlining this effort, the company has partnered with WeGoLook to provide eBay Motors vehicle shoppers with on-site inspections for any vehicle, motorcycle, RV, powersport or boat in the U.S., at a discounted rate as low as $69 per inspection.

Through this partnership, eBay Motors vehicle sellers can improve buyer confidence in vehicle transactions by providing on-site inspections conducted by a third party. Shoppers can also use WeGoLook's services to ensure online vehicle postings are verified, putting their minds at ease prior to making a purchase. This service is especially beneficial for shoppers purchasing vehicles outside state lines, which is more than half of all of cars and trucks sold on eBay Motors in the U.S.[1]

“When shopping for vehicles online, consumers want the same convenience and services they have become accustomed to receiving when buying clothing or electronics,” said Jay Hanson, eBay’s Vice President of North America Merchandising, Hard Goods. “With WeGoLook, we’re providing customers with an additional peace-of-mind when they buy on eBay.”

How WeGoLook works:

  • Through direct integration of WeGoLook on eBay Motors’ vehicle listings, buyers seamlessly select the ‘Order inspection from WeGoLook’ option
  • WeGoLook dispatches a local, background-checked, certified Agent (“Looker”) to verify the seller’s claims
  • WeGoLook collects dynamic data through photos and videos of the vehicle within three business days of dispatch

For eBay shoppers, WeGoLook auto reports start at $69 and include current photos, VIN and make/model verification, and an odometer reading. Buyers can also purchase additional information (ranging from $159 - $199) about the vehicle including: video demos and tours, photos, diagnostic and collision checks, test drives and more

 This initiative, along with eBay’s Assurant Protection Plan and Vehicle Purchase Protection - which covers up to $50,000 for vehicle non-delivery, missing title or major undisclosed defects - enables increased buyer confidence and solidifies the company’s position as the most trusted online marketplace.
