Tbilisi & Batumi

The First Vehicle & Real Estate Inspection Service In Georgia

Why CheckIt.ge?


Because Georgia does not have a body or guild that regulates inspections, getting honest and accurate information on the quality of your intended real estate or vehicle purchase was almost impossible. So we have created our own inspection system based closely on international standards from the USA and EU. We have combined these standards with local qualified experts to create the most reliable and objective inspection service available in Georgia.

A real estate inspection (aka building inspection or property inspection) can reveal tens of thousands of dollars of difference in the actual value of the property compared to the list price, as well as unexpected future costs.

Local Experts, International Standards

We train local inspectors with extensive experience in the Georgian market to follow international-level inspection criteria.

Real Estate Inspection Service

Get a detailed inspection that could save you thousands of dollars.

Real estate inspection (aka building inspection or property inspection) is the examination of a property to provide an accurate evaluation of its condition. Our real estate inspections are carried out by local experts in the field of construction and civil engineering. Our property inspection reports introduce an objective, honest assessment of the property with all the defects which could affect the safety or the price of the property. This evaluation will give buyers a full overview, enabling them to make the best decision when buying a new property.

Do I Need A Property Inspection?

In many countries, a real estate inspection is associated with almost any sale to protect the buyer from unforeseen defects, potential risks and expenses. In Georgia, shockingly, most buyers simply “take the seller/agent’s word for it” that the property is up to standard.

But, as our clients have discovered, a real estate inspection can reveal tens of thousands of dollars of difference in the actual value of the property compared to the list price, as well as unexpected future costs. Or, our inspections can verify that the property is at the expected standard, so that you can purchase with peace of mind. Either way, information is power, which you can use to negotiate based on objective proof, to buy with confidence, or simply to walk away from what would have been a bad investment.

Some common things a property inspection will identify:

Low quality installation of gas and electric lines which could have led to electrical fires, or even asphyxiation and explosions in rare cases.
Water pipes which may not be visible, with the potential to leak and cause major water damage.
Badly installed insulation which would lead to dampness.
Levelling of surfaces to ensure they are actually flat. Concrete surfaces which are not flat will lead to creaky flooring and increased floor wear.
Bad workmanship in general.
The costs which will be associated with fixing bad workmanship and whether those costs outweigh the cost of the property, giving you space to negotiate or back out of the deal.
And a lot more! Read the example report below for more details.

Vehicle Inspection Service

Get a detailed vehicle inspection and avoid getting ripped off.

Professional vehicle inspections are pretty rare in Georgia, with most people relying on having a friend or family member who is “handy with cars” come along to kick the tires and check for sawdust in the engine. Finding a trustworthy mechanic is hard enough on any day, but finding one to inspect a vehicle, who is not going to then upsell you on all the things you need done as well, is almost impossible.

Our vehicle inspection service is completely independent from any garage or mechanic service. We simply do not sell repair services. So you can be assured that our advice on problems with the vehicle are entirely objective, as we do not make money from repair work.

You can use our vehicle inspection reports to not only assess if a vehicle is worth purchasing, but also to use as a guideline when you do visit a mechanic to get any necessary repairs done, to make sure you don’t overpay for unnecessary work.

Some common things a vehicle inspection will identify:

If the vehicle was previously written off.
Vehicle or mechanical damage that could be unsafe or of concern.
Faulty parts that would not pass an MOT (roadworthiness assessment).
Necessary repair work and the estimated costs to get the vehicle in roadworthy condition, as well as additional optional repairs that would provide the best level of vehicle maintenance.
If the vehicle is worth the price tag.
And a lot more!

What information / documents will you need from me in order to get started?

For vehicles, the location where we would inspect the vehicle, the number plate (if present), and the contact information of the current owner.

Can you send an inspector with me to a car dealer even though I don't know which vehicle I am interested in yet?

Yes. This is certainly possible but additional fees may be charged depending on the length of time you need the inspector, and especially if multiple inspections are required. Please mention in the quote if you need this service.


From ~$180 USD:

Customers Feedback

I was delighted with the service provided by checkit.ge. They were fast, efficient and reliable. I thought I'd spotted all the potential issues with what I wanted to purchase but had missed some that checkit.ge pointed out. They have saved me a lot of money and a lot of headaches. Highly recommended.

FAQs

How quickly will the work be done?

The time depends on the complexity of the work and the current level of demand for our service. The average time from booking the service to sending you the completed report is typically 2-5 business days. If buying a vehicle on the spot, the inspector can give you a summary of what will be in the report to help you make the best decision, then provide the full written report afterward so you can get necessary repair work done with confidence.

What language can the report be provided in?

Currently English, Russian, or Georgian. Though we can organize translation to other languages, it is typically advised you get the report in a language that both you and the seller can understand. Bilingual reports in Georgian + English are possible by request, but there will be a translation fee added, which depends on the length of the report.

When will my payment be made?

Payment is required in full after the booking is made and before the work commences. We will initially assess your property via the photos and legal information you send us online, then provide you with a final quote and invoice. As soon as payment is confirmed, the inspection process can begin.

Are there any hidden costs?

Typically there are no extra costs beyond the initial quote, unless you request additional service beyond what was agreed. It is very rare for additional work to be discovered & deemed necessary during the inspection process, so it is very unlikely that we would ever have to charge more than expected. In any rare case where it becomes clear that additional work may be needed, we will inform you immediately, and the extra work will not take place unless you approve it. You will never be charged for something you were not expecting.

Can the property inspection cover houses, or just apartments?

Though apartments are the majority of abodes in Tbilisi & Batumi, we can certainly inspect houses as well. Let us know in your request, and we will get you a quote.

Will the inspection give me a report on the apartment building itself, as well as the interior?

Our inspectors will observe and report on some elements of the building in which your apartment is located, such as the lobby area and the corridors directly adjacent to your apartment. If you need a wider inspection of the building, please ask us in advance, as these will incur extra cost and also may need permission and assistance from the building manager to get us access to certain areas.

Can you inspect buildings/vehicles outside of Tbilisi & Batumi?

Typically, yes. Let us know the location of where the inspection will take place and we can advise you regarding any additional fees for our travel expenses.

Do you also inspect pests and mold?

We do not inspect the areas that should be inspected by other certified specialists in the field. We do not inspect the following: rodent infestation, landscaping, pests, airborne hazards (radon), mold, or low-voltage electrical systems (alarm systems and phone lines).

Are all areas always inspected?

Before inspection we contact the seller or developer to ask for permission to inspect the whole building. However, on several occasions we are not allowed to go to inspect the roof or basement.
