Vintage auto appraisal experts in Miami FL that a valid and professional vintage auto appraisal is composed of three elements, the very first one being that the appraisal firm must be operating under the approval of the insurance sector. Secondly, the vintage auto appraisal session needs to be carried out on-site. The third and last element is finding a competent vintage auto appraiser to carry out the service in a professional and reliable manner.

1. Auto appraiser authorized by the insurance sector

Auto insurers, whether in Miami FL or elsewhere, have a tendency of exclusively accepting vintage auto appraisals which have been handed in by a fully certified or authorized appraiser. It is therefore important for one to ensure that they confirm that the vintage auto appraiser they are using is a valid expert and is not on the insurer’s ‘do not use’ list. This will help to a great extent in saving one the hassle, money and time.

2. Visiting the car on-site

An experienced and very competent vintage auto appraiser will prefer conducting the car appraisal locally at the buyer’s garage (on-site) to make sure that the inspection and documentation is done in an adequate manner. The moment a car has not undergone adequate physical inspection, the worth of the appraisal for insurance reasons will be insignificant and the insurers will avoid or even refuse using it.  The only way through which the car appraisal report will be regarded as professional is if the data and pictures are gathered by the appraiser himself. It is important to take pictures of the maker’s plate vehicle identity number, engine compartment, interior and exterior if the appraisal is to be viewed as professional by the insurance service providers.

3. A professional and competent vintage auto appraiser

For the purposes of getting the actual fair worth of the vintage car determined, it would be very sensible to make sure that the appraiser being used is highly competent, experienced and dedicated. It is expected that the car appraisal report is drafted in a comprehensive manner and that a special report be made and delivered to the insurer and the car buyer/owner on behalf of the latter. In case the auto appraiser being used has had a courtroom experience seeking solutions for insurance sector disputes, one will be able to determine whether the appraiser has the right level of experience and competencies necessary for the procedure.
