To become Shift Certified, the car must pass our rigorous 150+ point inspection. Our master technicians carefully review the vehicle's records, reports and history while combing through every last corner of the car. Our standards are high, and we say no to many cars we inspect -- that way, it's easier for you to say yes to the car you want.
