The Appraisal

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.
