How We Appraise
How we formulate a vehicle appraisal for a client/customer.
We request that the client provide us with photos of certain documents. The primary one would be the registration card or title. The purpose here is to establish ownership, address and the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
Also requested would be photos. As many as the client can provide. Good examples would be all four corners of the vehicle, interior, dash, engine bay and trunk.
With all that assembled we can start the data investigation of value based upon the VIN and features of the vehicle.
Research of value comes via the NAAA. (National Auto Auction Association) that is purchased by Hagerty, NADA, CCMR, Edmonds, Kelly Blue, Black Book and such.
Finally, would be the actual physical inspection that establishes the condition of the vehicle.
By using an established grade by condition format, (see separate condition grading document) the appraiser ascertains value. Many other factors can provide an improvement of value. See number 7
Being the original owner or a one family owned. Having a lot or some of the original paperwork (bill of sale, window sticker, build sheets, owner’s manuals warranty cards, Original keys among other items.)
Our appraisal service would then provide the client a PDF appraisal document . This is a document that can be sent, printed and saved to a computer for later reference.
Please reach out directly to CCI for additional information. We identify that appraisals and our services can be unique in nature, and it's best to discuss details and plans of action for your assets.
