Why You Should Consider Starting an RV Inspection Business
Now, more than ever, RV buyers are looking for ways to be sure the RV they are purchasing is worth the money, and it is safe to travel in. Up until recently, there was never an organized way to get this kind of assistance. But now there is a growing national force of RV inspectors helping people achieve this goal of peace of mind when purchasing an RV!
In addition to improving buyer confidence, sellers are also looking for ways to verify the claims they make about their RV. This is especially true at RV dealerships. This is where the purchase process can be made so much easier for the person who knows little about RV’s but desires to own one.
That is why RV inspectors are in demand! RVDA dealerships around the country are looking for RV inspectors to do certified NRVIA inspections on their fleet. This is called a certified pre-owned program.
Imagine going to an RV dealership and seeing a sticker on the window that states the vehicle is a Certified Pre-owned RV. Also, imagine being able to ask for the RV inspection report. Do you think that would be of interest to a potential RV buyer?
What is an RV inspection? Why is it something that is needed?
Back in the 1970’s the home inspection industry was launched. Now, you can’t buy a house without one! Right now the RV inspection industry is where the home inspection industry was back in the 70’s! This means that those coming on board into the NRVIA are at the forefront of a new and emerging industry.
An RV inspection is like a home inspection, but for an RV!
The NRVIA, the National Recreational Vehicle Inspectors Association, is the organization responsible for the certifications and credibility in this new industry. Those desiring to offer these home inspections on an RV can begin their journey at the NRVIA website. This new and exciting industry is helping RV buyers avoid buying a money pit! Is an RV inspection business something that may be of interest to you?
