Every vehicle is inspected from top to bottom

Used is not the same as old

It's a question we regularly hear: does a vehicle advertisement on basworld.com completely compares to reality? The answer to that is yes. In fact, all vehicles for sale on basworld.com are pre-inspected. From front to back, we check every vehicle on 25 points. This means that every vehicle that you see online matches the way it is advertised. What you see is really what you get. In this article we explain what the inspection by BAS World entails.

An honest picture

The basis for successful trading lies in trust and honesty. A seller can claim that a vehicle is in good condition, but how can you be sure that this is correct? We prefer to really show the condition of a vehicle. How do we do that? We fully check all vehicles and supplement the specification lists where necessary. We shoot HD photos and videos of the vehicle, so that you can see all the details with your own eyes online. You can assume that a vehicle advertisement on basworld.com also fully compares to how you will receive the purchased vehicle.

A clear inspection process

The same steps are followed for every vehicle for sale on basworld.com. Whether it is offered by BAS World itself or one of our BAS World partners (external sellers). Curious which steps these are? Then read on:

Used is not the same as old

#1 – Register vehicle

Every vehicle that is ready for sale is registered with BAS World. All data, specifications and accompanying documents are supplied.

#2 – Preparing Check-in

The BAS World Inspection team reviews all data and maps the condition of the vehicle. What type of vehicle is it? Which make and model? In addition, we note the production date, Euro standard, number of tanks and content, type of gearbox and configuration. We extract all data from the manufacturer's system.

#3 – Check-in vehicles

The vehicle is checked from top to bottom by our vehicle inspector. With us in Veghel or at the location of a BAS World partner. The inspector fills in the specification list and notes all details. For example, if there is a second-hand vehicle with damage, this will be clearly stated in the description. This way you really know what you are buying.

Points we check during the vehicle inspection:

  • Category (standard, ADR, mega)
  • Type of lighting
  • Antenna Type
  • PTO
  • Hydraulics
  • Compressor
  • Other exterior options
  • Retarder
  • Reduction
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Tyres
  • Air conditioning
  • Cruise control
  • Gearbox type
  • Other interior options
  • Security options
  • Dimensions

#4 – Taking photos and videos

When all points and specifications have been noted, the vehicle is ready to be portrayed. HD photos are taken of all relevant parts and important specifications. We also shoot an HD video of the entire vehicle. The aim is to paint an honest and complete picture of the vehicle in the online advertisement.

#5 – Valuation advice

After all specifications have been recorded in detail, our price experts assess the value of the vehicle. This is done based on all specifications and a daily analysis of the current market situation. The seller gains insight into the value of the vehicle and receives a suitable price proposal.

#6 – Ready for sale

Once the seller has set the selling price, the vehicle is ready for sale. This means that the sales advertisement is posted online. Our active database of potential buyers is large: with 700,000 unique website visitors every month, 11,000 purchase inquiries and multiple Google campaigns (SEA).

Vehicle inspector Mike: “Our inspectors know the vehicles inside out. We record every detail, from the navigation system to the profile of the tyres. This means that we are 100% sure about the condition of a vehicle. And we also clearly show that in the advertisements. The inspection process has therefore become essential for buyers and sellers on basworld.com. We often act as ‘the eyes of the customer’.”
