Your vehicle should be appraised by the best certified auto appraiser Seattle offers. Consider it an important investment in your vehicle. You want to protect your vehicle, and an appraisal is just what you need to make sure that it gets the right insurance coverage. It can also tell you all that you need to know if you’re considering purchasing a certain vehicle.
Our appraisers appraise vehicles for everything from insurance to divorce settlements. They also do appraisals for bankruptcies, financial audits, pre-purchase inspections, diminished value claims, legal settlements, and prior to loss claims. With their experience in the automotive industry before they became appraisers and their completion of our comprehensive appraiser training, they are certified to appraise just about anything with or without wheels that can move with an engine.
They appraise trucks, recreational vehicles, boats, motorcycles, and more. They have access to our extensive database of current comparable sales to back up their market value determination as well. They will take dozens of high-resolution photographs and make detailed notes as they inspect every inch of the vehicle. They will then compile their notes and pictures into a detailed report for you that you will get a digital and hardbound copy of.
If you’re in the market to purchase a vehicle, it makes sense to have so the appraiser go over the vehicle you’re considering. This is especially true if you live too far away from the vehicle to do it yourself. You’ll save yourself time from work, family time, and travel expenses by letting the appraiser take a look at it for you. If you’re not an expert in the vehicle you want to buy, then having an expert appraiser take a look at it also makes sense.
The appraiser can uncover mechanical and cosmetic problems with the vehicle that you may not have been aware of. Then you can potentially negotiate the price of the vehicle if you’re trying to sell it, or you can get the problems fixed if you’re trying to sell your own vehicle.
With an appraisal, you can find the right insurance coverage as well. You should avoid letting an insurance appraiser appraise the vehicle because they may not be able to accurately determine the value of customizations or modifications that you’ve done to the vehicle. This could lead to their undervaluing the vehicle.
If you’re selling, the best certified auto appraiser Seattle can offer can help you sell it more quickly by giving you an accurate market value. You can sell it more quickly when it is priced right.
