Keep control of the inspection process without wasting time and resources on multiple inspectors attending the vessel for several potential buyers.
Significantly reducing cost to sellers, Idwal delivers one accurate and independent inspection report for any vessel released to the market for sale.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new module for pre-sale inspection reports, which streamlines their online distribution to facilitate the sale and purchase (S&P) of vessels. The module enables the following benefits to sellers and buyers:
This evolution of Idwal’s current service automates some of the manual tasks for all involved and marks another step towards a more efficient S&P inspection process.
Typically owners have elected to place their vessel on the market via brokers and then wait for multiple interested parties to inspect the vessel. This process can be chaotic and disruptive and it is challenging for sellers to manage the process.
Using the pre-sale method:
This is a cost-effective solution, which often neutralises the inspection costs and keeps the sellers in full control. Reports are kept confidential to serious buyers only and have a high-transaction success rate.
With over one hundred years of heritage and an ethos of quality, innovation, and integrity, Idwal is known for accurate, consistent and objective inspection reports as well as a continuous commitment to raising the standards of ship inspections worldwide.
We are supported by our offices in the UK, Shanghai, Tokyo and Greece and have an extensive global network of surveyors.
All inspection reports feature the Idwal Grade®, a number between 1 and 100 showing the integrity of any maritime asset or investment whilst enabling easy benchmarking and comparisons at a glance.
Pre-sale inspections are used by some of the biggest shipping names of the world...
