Classic Car Appraisal Fees


Telephone Consultation: $50 per car Talk and discuss each car.

Collector Car Appraisal: $250 plus mileage (no mileage charge when you bring the vehicle to us) $300 for unique/special/custom cars. Appraisals mainly for insurance, bankruptcy or bank valuation. We evaluate the vehicle and take it for a test drive (if possible). This written appraisal certificate gives the vehicle ID numbers, a detailed descriptions and condition of body, interior, trim, engine, engine compartment and undercarriage as well as an overall mechanical opinion.

Charitable Donation: $250 plus mileage We will supply the 8283 form you need for your taxes. You will need this on any vehicle which you donate with a value of more than $5000.

Pre-Accident: $300 plus mileage You need this when there is a dispute between you and your insurance company after an accident has happened. When an insurance company has "totaled" your vehicle and you believe it is worth more then they are offering.

Diminished Value / Loss-in-Value: $300 plus mileage This is needed on newer cars that have been wrecked and repaired. We figure what the vehicle has lost in value due to the accident. No knowledgeable buyer will pay the same for a wrecked-and-repaired vehicle with a poor CarFax report as a never-wrecked vehicle. We use our time-proven formula and knowledge of the market to help you get the value you lost.

Pre-Purchase: $350 plus mileage ($50 extra for written report) This inspection is having an expert scrutinize your intended purchase and give you a verbal opinion and send you detailed photos on all the physical and mechanical condition details. We will take it for a test drive (if possible) and call you when we are looking at the vehicle (if possible). This is mainly used in situations where you may be purchasing a vehicle from an ad or on E-Bay and are unable to personally inspect the vehicle yourself. We will check for rust or sheet metal replacement, make sure everything is working and test drive the vehicle (if permitted).

Expert Witness: $175 per hour (3 hour min), $800 daily charge, plus mileage & travel costs When you need us in court or for depositions.

Mileage expense: $50 minimum. There is a $.75/mile fee for time and travel with a $50 minimum.

Discounts: Three or more vehicles at one location may be eligible.
