DC&A spends approximately 1 hour
with the average vehicle inspecting all visible components.
No disassembly is done for this inspection, but a
careful and detailed inspection takes place. In some
cases the owner is asked to bring his vehicle to a
local garage for detailed engine numerical identification.
A number of photographs of the vehicle are taken at
this time so as to have a visible record of the condition
at the time of inspection. The VIN (Vehicle Identification
Number) and documentation tags are compared for authenticity
and/ or to discover discrepancies. We require a minimum
of 18 date documented digital photos but we may wish
to take more if required. The appraiser records inspections
of the vehicle at the time of evaluation.
We then return to the office to edit, type and assemble
the photos. Before a value is attached to your vehicle,
the appraiser will research your vehicle for quality,
authenticity, rarity, known sales figures of similar
vehicles and confirmation of modification investments.
A completed summary includes a VIN identification
decode and a detailed written evaluation of the main
components of the vehicle. A minimum of 3 pages +
a DVD with your pictures will be sent to you by mail
7 to 10 days. Please contact us by phone or e-mail
for more information.
