Have you just experienced a collision or recovered your vehicle from theft? Before you file a claim with your insurance company, a pre-insurance inspection is an essential component in the claims process. Pre-insurance inspections were designed to curb the rise in prices of automotive insurance while preventing fraudulent insurance claims.
At Goodyear Kem Auto Center, we partner with CARCO to provide pre-insurance inspections to customers in Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Queens, NY.

Why Goodyear Kem Auto Center for Pre-Insurance Inspections?
As an official CARCO Vehicle Inspection Site, Goodyear Kem Auto Center is able to perform and process pre-insurance inspections in a timely fashion. The aim of our inspection process is to document that the insured vehicle actually exists, and to verify its current condition before an insurance company can issue a claim or new policy. The pre-inspection process involves two quick stages consisting of a vehicle inspection and photo documentation.
If you plan on purchasing a new insurance policy or filing a claim for a recent accident or collision, a pre-inspection is a must.
