Used cars evaluation

Checking conformity to safety and reliability requirement

Before buying a used vehicle, it is essential to check that its economic value is in line with and suitable in terms of its actual condition: this is why car manufacturers and rental and leasing companies need technical checking services for vehicles, parts, spares and accessories, in order to certify that they conform to safety and reliability requirements.


RINA’s team determine and evaluate the condition of the vehicle, in relation to the need to put it back into the used market, by means of documental, visual and functional inspections. 
The factors analysed include: wear status of mechanical parts, checking type approval of spare parts, extent of any wear, maintenance required and related costs. 
Following these checks a detailed technical schedule is prepared, which certifies the condition at all stages of evaluating the used vehicle: appraisal, counter appraisal, certification and delivery.

The activity is carried out in accordance with the RINA governance model, which safeguards impartiality and prevents conflict of interest situations.


By means of inspections done by a qualified international team, RINA acts as a partner for automobile manufacturers, and vehicle transporters, to optimise and make shipment of the goods more reliable.
