Time of Loss Appraisal - by Jay, 2018-01-29 21:32:34

4.64 / 5 stars

My Roadmaster "Woody" wagon took on floodwater, and the insurance company called it a total loss. Their series of settlement offers concluded nowhere near the value of the car. My last option was to hire an appraiser, and they would hire an appraiser, and then the two appraisers would determine the pre-flood value. Fortunately, I found Woody. He took a great set of detailed photographs, and suggested where to place the car for the most favorable lighting. The insurance company's appraiser gladly used those pictures instead of performing a second inspection. Woody's research documented the true value of the car, and the same day he discussed it with the other appraiser, the insurance company called me with an offer at the upper end of the range Woody predicted.

1966 T bird Pre-Purchase Inspection - by Lee Murphy, 2017-05-22 00:40:23

4.06 / 5 stars

I just wanted to thank you once more for all your help involving your thorough inspection of the classic 1966 Tbird I was considering purchasing. I was hoping to be fortunate enough to negotiate the car down around $22k prior to your inspection, but empowered with your findings I was ecstatic to finalize the negotiations at an even $20k out the door. I know that was slightly higher than your appraisal still, but to make the ultimate father’s day gift possible for my dad I am more than happy at the price. Additionally, I had pretty high expectations for the report that was to follow, and yet I was still blown away at the quality, care, and thoroughness throughout the binded report booklet upon receipt. I am convinced your work helped save me thousands in this single transaction and would recommend your service to anyone I know who might need it. I certainly know I will utilize it again in the future without hesitation when needed.

Pre-Purchase Inspection - by Tom Trombetto, 2017-03-10 14:34:29

Prior to hiring Woody to inspect the 1966 Corvette that I wanted to purchase I spoke to two other individuals that had the talk but when questioned about the particulars of this year Corvette and their ability to preform what they said they could come up with the correct answers. After talking to Woody I was confident that he would do a good job, I was wrong he did a great job and picked up things that I would have missed. I am very happy with the job and all of the documentation he provided.

2008 Hyundai appraisal - by A D Heath, Buyer at A D BOOKSELLER, 2017-03-10 05:06:53

3.83 / 5 stars

Our 2008 Hyundai was totaled. Our coverage was with Allstate that decided the vehicles worth arbitrarily based on blue book at $11,700. We knew that was low and providentially saw Michael s vehicle parked at a dealer while hunting for a replacement. His professional report proved the value of our vehicle to be much more. After negotiation we came away with $1800 more in settlement dollars. Don t be afraid to push back on the insurers when you have Auto Appraisal network backing you up.

Woody did a fabulous job on my appraisal on my Aston Martin as well as a few other follow-up questions I had. I've only run across one person to recommend him to for his diminished value service (it was their second accident) and will gladly recommend him
