Everything you need to know to get SGS working
- Where does SGS inspect vehicles? – We
inspect vehicles wherever it is convenient – home, office
or any other location selected. Our inspectors work 8am to 5pm, and our customer service
hours are Monday through Friday 8am to 9pm. After an inspection is ordered, one of our
Customer Service Representatives will call the seller to schedule a convenient time
and place. SGS is all about convenience for our customers.
- How long does it take to get an inspection completed?– Usually
two days, depending on the location of the vehicle and the time payment is received. SGS will attempt to post the
inspection report within 24 hours of the inspection. Same day inspections are not
available; however in most cases, we can accommodate next day appointments if the payment
is received prior to 2:00 pm EST. Check the eBay auction schedule to be
sure that there will be enough time to complete the inspection
before the auction.

30 to 45 minutes.

buyers or sellers can request SGS Motorcycle Inspection Reports.

and motorcycle information.

the inspection? – The motorcycle registration
and proof of insurance must be provided to the inspector.

owner of the motorcycle or the owner's representative will be required
to sign an “Authorization Agreement” giving us permission
to inspect the motorcycle.
