Auto Appraisals will inspect your collectible or special interest vehicle and provide a professional detailed document that may be used for insurance purposes, sale of your vehicle or estate planning. Your report will consist of photos of your vehicle from different angles. The photos will include exterior, interior, engine, trunk, under-carriage and other areas as applicable. The VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and documentation tags are photographed and compared for authenticity. Paint thickness is measured and reported for authenticity of factory paint on unrestored survivors and validation of collision repairs.
Once all of the information is gathered the appraiser will research your vehicle for comparable vehicles of similar quality. Known sales figures of similar vehicles and confirmation of modification investments will be included in the final report showing the Actual Cash Value (ACV) and Appraised Insurance Value that includes applicable taxes.
