When you’re in the market for a classic or custom vehicle, you need to spend your money wisely. That’s why you should work with an appraiser to get the best pre purchase car inspection San Diego can offer. Our expert appraisers will give you all the information you need to make an informed choice about the vehicle you want to buy.
While you may think you’ve found the perfect vehicle online or through the grapevine, you need to have all the information about the car. It might look great in the pictures and sound great in a written description, but you need another look.
You may spend a lot of time and money traveling to the location of the car and doing the inspection yourself. If you don’t have the experience and expertise to do the inspection right, you’re just wasting your time and money. That’s why it makes sense in these situations to get an appraiser to be your eyes and ears and your advocate.
The appraiser is experienced in appraising many types of vehicles, from boats to custom motorcycles. They have completed an extensive appraiser training, and they are certified to appraise just about vehicle you’re considering. They’ll look carefully under, on top of, and around it to find mechanical and cosmetic problems. They can tell if it’s been in an accident, and, if it has been in a wreck, what the quality of any repairs done is. If you are looking for an original, they can tell you if the numbers match and if there are any unoriginal, aftermarket pieces.
During the inspection, the appraiser will take dozens of high-resolution photos and lots of notes. Then they compile them into a report for you. You’ll get a printed and bound copy as well as a digital copy for your records. You can then decide if you want to purchase the vehicle or not because you’ll have all the information you need to make an educated decision.
There can be some good news if the appraisal uncovers mechanical or cosmetic problems. You may be able to negotiate the price down some. If there are serious issues, you can ask the seller to reduce the price significantly because you know the true market value of the vehicle. You can also simply walk away from the deal if there are too many problems with the vehicle. On the other hand, the appraisal may be just what you need to feel confident that that vehicle is perfect for you, and so you buy it right away.
