Pre-Purchase Inspection Marketplace
Get a rapid, unbiased, pre-purchase inspection and evaluation of any vehicle, anywhere, BEFORE you purchase or make an offer.
R8TR App is a marketplace where out of town "buyers" can hire local, experienced, and knowledgeable R8TRs to quickly evaluate a potential purchase, providing a detailed condition report. R8TR provides peace of mind when buying Cars, Trucks, Boats, Motorcycles, or RVs.
If you are currently looking to purchase a Car, Truck, Boat, Motorcycle, RV, Camper, or Travel Trailer - simply download the app, register to be a buyer and click submit job. Then, you add the description, location, and contact information of the seller. Once submitted, a R8TR in that local area will accept the job, contact the seller, schedule an appointment, and send you a full vehicle condition report including pictures, videos, and descriptions.
R8TR’s are the eyes, ears and nose of the out-of-town buyer.
R8TR’s should be passionate and knowledgeable about whatever vehicle category they are r8ting.
R8TRs are professional and polite when contacting the seller and scheduling a meeting, as well as during the meeting with the seller. Upon arriving at the requested vehicle, the R8TR will engage the app and begin the process of evaluating the vehicle.
Vehicles will always be evaluated in the same manner following in app instructions, with minor variations, based on the vehicle category.
The R8TR is looking for scratches, dents, imperfections, rust, obvious replaced parts, aftermarket parts, cracks and other imperfections.
R8TRs will be “nitpicky” and point out every single flaw, as if they were the most meticulous buyer in the world.
The goal of the R8TR is to be more detail oriented and thorough than the buyer themselves. No flaw or imperfection will go un-noted.
Although the R8TR’s job is to locate and identify every imperfection in the vehicle, they will never be anything but courteous and respectful of the seller. Rather than exploiting a vehicles imperfection, R8TR’s quietly and professionally document the information using the app, and let the buyer draw their own conclusions. At no time will the seller ever feel like R8TR’s are against them. Conversely, R8TR’s should represent themselves in such a way as to make the seller want to work with a R8TR again in the future.

Lack of business
As a previous car salesman/manager, the concept behind this app can be groundbreaking for users and for the industry, especially because a vast majority of people look to find their car buying options out of state as an option vs feeling trapped and forced to find what’s available nearby. Unfortunately there seems to be no jobs available anywhere, so I wonder if anyone is using this app besides just to try and make money. Seeing other reviews, I fortunately see that the app works perfectly fine for me besides the lack of any work. My advice to the developers here is to market not only to prospecting workers but maybe even dealers whether big or small who are trying to move inventory, have them advertise this as a way to view inventory and answer questions that they can’t themselves, in my experience I’m sure many of dealers out there are looking for ways to market their inventory to the public and save a penny or 2 doing it, since many of the platforms already available do pretty much the same thing but also have some type of buyers guarantee to save them in the event of any issues! All in all I’m 100% behind the idea just needs more attention and business to back it! Keep doing what you’re doing, I hope to see one day where I can log on and would have to fight just to grab a job in my local area!
Great app for buyers and sellers
Great app for someone who is looking at cars all over the country! Sign up , look for someone in the area of the vehicle your interested in, send them to evaluate the car for you and everyone gets what they want!!! I have rated cars and the app works well now that it has been fine tuned. It’s great to have another car guy check out a vehicle for you before your drive or fly hours to buy!! Great idea and app!!
Is This Thing Even On?
I get the concept behind the app and think it could be a hit. But, when you log in and there is nothing, it kinda makes you wonder. There is all this pomp and circumstance when you see their videos and read the reviews, they claim are from actual customers and r8ters. I’m just trying to figure out how much is real and how is smoke they are trying to blow you know where. Maybe this app isn’t ready for the mainstream and is only popular in certain parts of the country. Who knows. What I do know is that the company needs to do a better job convincing people to use the app in their respective areas and that they will eventually find something. And they need to show why this is app is better than anything else online for buying and selling cars, boats, etc. Seems like it’s all a flashy show so far. If they keep going like this, I don’t see this app being useful in the near future.
