WeGoLook – Independent Verification For Major Purchases

Everyone has experienced the disappointment that results when an item they purchased online showed up in less-than-stellar condition. WeGoLook is an incredibly useful web-app that can help prevent people from being surprised by the condition of items they purchase site-unseen.

Websites like eBay and Craigslist have made online shopping a breeze. In many cases, however, the photos that sellers post of their products can be misleading or deceptive. WeGoLook can help you avoid buying items that aren’t as they seem by sending professional inspectors to visit those items in person before any money changes hands. The next time you’re thinking about buying a car, renting a property, or making a major purchase online, take the time to sign in to WeGoLook and order a custom report before pulling the trigger on your latest acquisition. WeGoLook will send one of its 7,000 qualified agents to inspect the item and gather any specific information you request. The information the agent gathers will be published in a custom report, which you can use in making a decision on whether to continue forward with the purchase you were planning to make.

In addition to confirming the existence of the property in question, WeGoLook’s agents can confirm brands, manufacturers, and model numbers. They can also take up to 10 digital photographs and answer any questions you have, like the product’s size, weight, or condition. Users who pay for WeGoLook’s upgraded services can also get expert appraisals, custom videos, working demonstrations, and help with shipping or transportation arrangements.
