Pinnacle Auto Appraisers is your Houston, Texas and surrounding area Auto Appraisal Company.
Auto appraisers have existed since the first automobile hit the public market in 1885. Insurance companies, financial institutions, lawyers, and charitable donations all require a certified auto appraisal to be performed. All entities want certifeid documentation showing what the vehicle is worth from a qualified auto appraiser. Certified auto appraisals require spefic guidelines to be followed as well as certain information to be in the report.
For diminished value appraisals, the main parts that are included in the report are before and after values, date of loss, dealership quotes, repair bill, market research, vehicle history and investigation work. The most commonly used vehicle history report is a Carfax report. Many potential buyers reference Carfax reports before purchasing a used vehicle.
Also auto appraisals can be performed for stated value, replacement value, bonded titles, charitable donations, lease turn-in, wholesale value, replacement value, heavy equipment, standard presumptive value, total loss claims, long-term investments, third party claimants, no-fault claimants, uninsured motorist, insurance policies, classic or antique cars, collector or vintage cars, custom cars, commercial vehicles, utility trailers and recreational vehicles.
When a wrecked or physically damaged vehicle is repaired, an auto damage estimator will write or perform a repair estimate to estimate the cost for repairs. Usually this is performed on software programs such as audatex, penpro, autosource or ccc pathways. These are the most common used estimating software programs.
