Five Star Service , Prompt and very professional service. I will definitely use your firm again for my next classic vehicle purchase. Regards, Rick By Rick Endersby for 1956 Ford F100 in Plano, TX
Thank you for a great job you saved me a lot problems in the future. Never, never never believe what you see in a photo sent on line from a sales person, if you can't go see it get someone to look at it. Thank again. Dave Schmidt By David Schmidt for 1959 Edsel Corsair in Jacksonville, FL

Always a pleasure ! By Mike Sperduto for 1971 Cadillac Coupe Deville in Cincinnati, OH
Thank you for this excellent report; better then the previous one (last year). Very detailed, thank you. By Bassam Al Dana for 1992 Cadillac Brougham in Canal Winchester, OH
Your inspection of this car for me was a great help !! It is a relief to be able to have a professional able to inspect a vehicle so far from home and trust what they say about the vehicle. Thank You Very Much !! Dave Wainwright By David Wainwright for 1968 Chevrolet Corvette in West Babylon, NY
Than you for an super fast and detailed report on my Corvette! By Marcelo Leon for 1970 Chevrolet Corvette in Bremen, GA
Thank you for a nicely detailed report and photo inspection. I wasn't looking for a show quality car but the issues pointed out by the inspector and the ones I recognized in the photos could end up as thousands in repairs. The engine compartment photos told me that the owner didn't appreciate this collector car. I'll keep looking for that diamond in the rough and when I spot a possible prospect I'll call LEMON SQUAD. By Albert Henning for 1935 Chevy Master Deluxe 4 Door in Monrovia, IN
Angel went out of the way to help me had to get the schedule bumped up due to time constraints, she jumped on it and got it handled. The report was accurate and factual and concise. I would not hesitate to use them in the future if needed. By Charles Brill Jr for 1969 Pontiac Gto in Amarillo, TX
I hired Lemon Squad, because of the very nice and not to mention professional young lady that took my call. She made me feel confident that I could trust there mechanics and service. I was told my inspection would be done on Friday and to expect my report on Saturday. Well hours later I had my report in hand. The main reason I'm giving five stars is the report matched the sellers discription. I neglected to say, the price was $100.00 cheaper then the other competitors I contacted. Chris By Chris Carr for 1993 Ford Mustang in Mckinney, TX
Items have been 'checked off' as OK that are not applicable, such as - manual windows (there are none), - carpet (there is none), - instrument cluster/gauges (the stock switches are not operational due to retrofitting an AC unit, but this is not mentioned), and - convertible top (at time of inspection, was not fully assembled, so can't have been 'tested'). The seat condition is noted as "light wear, normal for mileage" - these are BRAND NEW seats !? The paint is noted as "misc scratches, normal for mileage" - this is a BRAND NEW paint job !? There are 46 photographs, but only one is titled/annotated, so I'm not sure what many of them are depicting. Overall a little disappointing. By Patrick Castle for 1981 Jeep CJ-7 in Longwood, FL
Very impressed with the details of the inspection. Wasn't expecting it to be that in depth. Extremely satisfied, would definitely use again. Thank you very much !!! By Lane Rhodus for 1968 Chevrolet Camaro in Laurinburg, NC
Thank you for this valuable inspection. I am especially happy that your noted comments were accompanied by appropriate pictures.. On the "needs room for improvement" side, I think your report format could be enhanced. With all the check marks, it 'appears' the inspector did a cursory review. I feel that a check mark on "Sunroof" when a vehicle does not have one provides no value. A 'None' or 'Works Perfectly' or 'Sticking' is more informative and give the impression that the item was fully tested. What does a check mark next to 'Signs of Smoking' mean? Does it mean that you checked? There were signs of smoking? There were not signs of smoking? There are many items that could be given a grade of high, medium, low, good, bad, fair, yes, no, new, used, signs of wear, etc. This vehicle did not have a tire jack. I am aware of it, but I would have thought you guys would have checked. No surprise for me but it might be a surprise for someone else. I feel comfortable that your inspection was thorough but for $300 I would have expected your report would be a little more robust. By Joe Morel for 1966 Ford Mustang in Jonesboro, LA
Please take the time to spend 249.00 for a vintage car inspection... These guy saved me over 30k the seller was claiming the car was turn key and ready to go...wow pictures sure showed other wise...thank you lemon Squad...will be using you guy again. Thank you for your great service, Bill By William Gill for 1956 Rolls royce Silver cloud in Denver, CO
Angle was very helpful taking my call and quickly assigning the job. Andy did a great job explaining the condition of the vehicle. Lots of pictures with detail. Friendly, fast and professional at a reasonable cost. Can't do any better. I will use Lemon Squad on my next vehicle purchase. By Whit Stark for 1960 Autobianchi Bianchina Trasformabile in St Louis Park, MN
Lemon Squad is the best. Even though the inspection showed up many faults, the seller praised the professionalism of the inspector. I will use them again. Thanks guys, Val Sommovigo By Valentine Sommovigo for 1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio in Warwick, NY
Thanks again Lemon Squad-you are four for four now! This would be a great car for me were I younger and had someplace to work on it. But I am not young and have no shop so the search continues! Will be in touch soon for another inspection by you guys-you are all great. The report and pictures are professional, easy to read and give me peace of mind. Thanks and Happy 2016! Phil Crane By Phil Crane for 1984 Jaguar XJ6 in Lynnwood, WA
Prompt response, plenty of pictures and info to help me make a decision. Happy customer. By Richard Meck for 1949 Studebaker Pickup in Tuscon, AZ
Thank you for inspecting the car as fast as you did. I have decided not to purchase this car because your comprehensive report showed a lot of things that I would not have noticed until the car was delivered. This report saved me form many disappointments about this car and saved me a lot of money and headaches. I will definitely be using your service again.I will be posting very good comments on social media as well. Thanks again, Dave Scheidt By David Scheidt for 1967 Chevrolet El Camino in Yuca Valley, CA
I wish that I could add more stars, this company deserves more than just five stars or just an awesome rating; this was fantastic service! It is literally the best money that I've ever spent towards a potential classic car purchase, especially one that's 2,000 miles away. I highly recommend Lemon Squad and will be using them again, and again, and again! By Scott Gilbertson for 1969 Toyota Corona in Portland, OR
Thank you so much for your findings. The search for my dream car continues By Leonard Lowe for 1992 Mercedes-Benz 600 Series 600 v12 in Paterson, NJ
