Hot Rod Inspections

Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections in Phoenix, AZ​

Flood Cars - This Page is Under Construction

One of the services I perform is to specifically inspect a car to determine if it has been in a flood, usually at one of the larger auto auction businesses in the Phoenix metro area.  Typically these are cars are from an area impacted by a hurricane or flooding due to heavy rain.  People in the midwest or on the east coast are aware of flood cars and look out for them.  People in the southwest are not expecting flood cars to be around here and that is why they get shipped here.  Estimate numbers for flood cars just in the Houston area after hurricane Harvey were between 450,000 and 500,000 cars.  You do not have to be an expert to look for a flood car - it can be done by an average person.  I will be adding a bullet item list and pictures to this page in the near future so you will know what to look for if you will be purchasing a used car.
