There is no manufacturer’s retail price available on classic cars. Each one is unique in its own right, often having been customized in at least a few ways over the decades. If you are in the process of getting a classic car or you own one already, you need a classic car value estimator Seattle.
If you’re in the process of searching for the right classic car to add to your collection, you want to know that the car you’re considering purchasing is worth what the seller is asking for it. This is the perfect time to purchase a pre-purchase inspection. An appraiser will go over every inch of the car and take photographs of it to note any damage and will make sure that everything works properly. This can give you the peace of mind you need to make the purchase, knowing that you got a good deal on a car that is all that the seller said it is.
Should you already be the owner of a classic car, having an appraiser look at your vehicle is a good idea to protect your investment. Should the car be damaged in some way, perhaps in an accident, or if it is stolen, you want to know the market value of the vehicle so that you can confidently submit that number to the insurance company for replacement value or so you can get a fair settlement for repairs.
Appraisals are also important if you are facing a legal situation where the value of the car needs to be known. For example, if you are getting a divorce, or if you’re going through an estate settlement, you will need to know what the car is worth. Likewise, financial audits and bankruptcy procedures will likely require that the vehicle be appraised.
Our experienced and knowledgeable appraisers will go over every inch of your car in detail. They have worked in the automotive industry for years, and many of them have been classic car collectors themselves. They know how to check to make sure the numbers match, to tell the quality of any repairs that have been made to the vehicle in the past. They will help you decide if you’re making a good purchase, to approach your insurance company with confidence, or to know if you’re selling the vehicle at the right price.
