If you ask 5 automobile professionals to put a value on a car, you'll get 5 different car appraisals. But if you ask the same 5 car appraisers to use our specially designed inspection form to document the condition, you'll get consistent information from each vehicle appraiser, leading to consistent auto appraisals. AAG vehicle appraisals are not just one man's opinion. Our certified vehicle appraisers are extensively trained and tested to gather information and are supported by a broad base of specialized experts, insuring that your car appraisal is accurate.
It's not just one man's opinion
Because our certified vehicle appraisers are extensively trained and supported by specialized experts, the expertise of our car appraisers is not simply based on personal experience or basic knowledge. A vast base of vehicle appraisal knowledge goes into each of our vehicle inspections, drawing on many different aspects of auto 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, auto appraisals from our vehicle appraisers are free from self-interest. All information developed is confidential; only AAG and the client have access.
A certified appraisal from our certified car appraisers can save you both money and time.
