third party inspection???

Hello, I have been shopping for a TJ for several months and have a question...

I have sold several motorcycles, atv's, boats etc on CL. Usually, the first person that looks at the item has purchased it....friends call me wholesale, ha. No one has ever asked to take the vehicle for an inspection.

Have any of you had issues with this? I know dealerships will usually let you take the vehicle for an inspection. Is it out of line to request this from a private party seller??? I have no idea. I'm not sure I would allow some one to take my vehicle.

Unless, cash up front, final payment contingent on inspection? Maybe have the vehicle owner go along?

Any experience with this? Thanks in advance.
Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

I've let people take one of my vehicle to a mechanic for inspection once. Granted it was an elderly couple though. I wouldn't have let them take it except I felt comfortable with them doing so.

Only if I go along with them. Young or old they can all rip me off or try to provide me with a bogus inspection form. Plus if a mechanic is looking at it I don't trust them either. Wouldn't want them sabotage anything while I can't see.
