If you ask 5 automobile professionals to put a value on a car, you'll get 5 different values. But if you ask the same 5 automobile professionals to use our specially designed inspection form to document the condition, you'll get consistent information, which leads to consistent auto appraisals. AAG appraisals are not just one man's opinion. Our certified agents are extensively trained and tested to gather information and are supported by a broad base of specialized experts, insuring that your appraisal is accurate.
It's not just one man's opinion
Because our certified agents are extensively trained and supported by specialized experts, their expertise is not simply based on personal experience or basic knowledge. A vast base of knowledge goes into each of our inspections, drawing on many different aspects of appraisal and creating a comprehensive evaluation of your vehicle.
Additionally, AAG compiles over 171,000 new sales and value records into our databases each month. This allows us to utilize the most current and reliable resources for research during our comparable valuation process.
Our appraisals are independent
Our primary interest is the client's best interest. Because we don't buy, sell, or insure cars, our appraisals are free from self-interest. All information developed is confidential; only AAG and the client have access.
Our certified appraisals can save you both money and time.
With an AAG appraisal in hand, you will have much greater confidence that you won't pay too much, settle for too little or under insure your collectible automobile. AAG's appraisals are recognized worldwide by major insurance companies, lending institutions, federal agencies,and state and federal courts. Knowing you have the best appraisal possible will make it possible for you to forego second or third opinions.
