    Pre-purchase inspection - by Gordon Pumphrey, 2023-04-13 12:04:26

    3.80 / 5 stars

    I had located a classic car in Michigan that I was interested in. At the time I was in Florida for the winter. I was lucky enough to find Marty Ruth to perform a PPI for me. Marty took a couple hundred HD pictures with notes. We had a zoom meeting to go over the pictures together. His meticulous pictures and his opinions I received during the zoom meeting was just like being there in person. Even if I had gone there to look at the car myself I still would not have seen all that Marty pointed out. We exchanged emails, texts and phone calls and Marty was always prompt to get back to me when I had questions. What a personable and professional person to do business with. I highly recommend the services of Marty Ruth.
