Divorce

Are you and your spouse unable to agree on an equitable division of the family vehicles? Do you have very different opinions on the value of the vehicles? Does it seem impossible to find common ground or reach a fair settlement?

An impartial appraisal can help settle these differences. Documentation of the vehicles' values will prevent a court or some attorney from determining what your vehicles are worth.

A standard vehicle appraisal includes an assessment of condition and a determination of the fair market value of the vehicle. It provides the documentation required to justify the value during divorce proceedings.

Standard Vehicle Appraisal

$175 plus travel* and tolls

A standard vehicle appraisal provides a value of the vehicle at the current time. We inspect and photograph the condition of the vehicle and collect any information from the owner that could affect its value. We then rate the vehicle on a universal scale of condition.

We research websites, auctions, “For Sale”, publications like “Old Cars”, “NADA” etc., and consult with experts to establish the fair market value range of the vehicle. With all this information, we assess the value of the vehicle and prepare a formal appraisal report.

We are also available for court appearances**, if needed.
