Value to Customer

Impartial Opinion

Classic Appraisals is not affiliated with any vehicle dealership or auto restoration shop. I appraise all vehicles as if I were personally planning to purchase them.  I provide constructive criticisms to aid in maximizing resale value.

No Referral Premiums

I do not receive commissions or payments from insurance companies to direct business toward them.

Quality Report

You get more than a dollar value on a piece of paper.  I provide a very detailed appraisal, including color photos, within 5-7 business days.

Integrity

I treat all clients and their vehicles with the utmost respect.  I perform all appraisal services with integrity, honesty and professionalism. 


"I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)
