We resolve issues of a potential buyer sending money deposits and the seller not producing the goods. These deposits are kept by the seller, knowing you are thousands of miles away and will not pursue them. I can contact the seller and advise him or her that I have been hired by you, I can pursue them and expose them in the town they live in and help to recover your money and expose them as being a fraudulent seller.

Appraisal Reports
INSPECTION  A full written appraisal based on condition, identification of the restoration, if any, all pertinent information on the vehicle and photographing the vehicle throughout.  The vehicle is then rated on a universal scale of condition.  A full written report is submitted along with detailed photographs.

Our inspection also includes examining the underside of the car, checking out the suspension, exhaust system, flooring and chassis.  Road testing the vehicle is also an important part of the appraisal.  This is done to ensure that the motor, transmission and brakes are working.
