Driving around in a custom or classic car is a ton of fun, but you definitely need to protect your investment by getting a custom car appraisal. It can be helpful in a variety of circumstances, and our experienced car appraisers are the right professionals to partner with to safeguard your vehicle and your money. Let us help you make the right decision about insurance, buying, or selling a custom or classic car.
You definitely want to get a custom car appraisal for insurance purposes. You can give the appraisal to different insurance companies to shop for the perfect coverage for you. You won’t have to deal with an insurance appraiser not valuing your car correctly because they aren’t familiar with how to properly value customizations and modifications. They aren’t likely to have access to the latest in comparable sales data, either.
Additionally, getting an appraisal can be helpful if you’re dealing with legal situations. For example, they can help the proceedings to go more smoothly for situations like divorce, estate settlement, financial audits, etc. You will also need an appraisal if you’re planning to donate your car to charity and claim it on your taxes.
If you’re about to buy a car, you should get a pre-purchase inspection to find any mechanical or cosmetic issues that should be repaired. You can also use these problems to negotiate the price. The appraiser will examine the car carefully, taking dozens of high-resolution photos and recording detailed notes. They then put the information into a report of which you will receive a printed and a digital copy. Then you will be able to make an informed choice of whether to buy the car, negotiate the price, or walk away. If you don’t live near the car, you can also save time away from your job and family by having an appraiser look at the car for you.
Should you want to sell your car, an appraisal can help you identify problems to fix and give you the right information on how to price it. The appraisal helps you avoid overcharging for it and gets the buyers rolling in.
With a custom car appraisal, you can save many headaches and wasted money. You will be ready to move forward with insurance, purchasing, selling, or dealing with legal processes.
