...NOT JUST AN ORDINARY COMPANY.
SPECIALTY AUTO APPRAISER is a full service automotive appraisal company established in October of 1979. Our appraisals are recognized and accepted by the courts, legal community, insurance industry, major lending institutions and the general public since its inception. The values expressed by this company are independent in that we are not under contract to any law firm, financial institution, insurance company or any other public or private agency. The value derived for any specific vehicle is based on years of experience with comparable market surveys, dealer surveys and inquiries, price guide interpretations, added market value adjustments for custom or modified vehicles and my own personal sales and marketing experience.
SPECIALTY AUTO APPRAISER is a non partisan appraisal company designed to provide an estimated actual cash value given the year, make, model, condition, options, history and desirability of the subject vehicle in relation to its standing among other similar vehicles within the marketplace. As is the current standard values are based on market samplings with adjustments for mileage, condition and options to better reflect the specific value of the subject vehicle. Other methods may be employed including added-value computations for custom or upgraded vehicles, dealer quotes and manufacturers inquiries if deemed appropriate for any given vehicle or situation
