FAQ

What is the wait time for an inspection? Inspections need to be booked 72 hours in advance. We will then try and schedule you in accordingly. Things like capacity and location could affect your requested time but we try our best to communicate any delays as soon as possible.

When will I be notified the time that the inspection is happening? We try our best to communicate the approximate inspection time the night before the scheduled day. Unforeseen circumstances can affect this but we try our best to communicate the night before the requested day.
