Just finished an inspection for me and I could not be happier! This company is great from beginning to end. Worth every penny I paid. I will not hesitate to use them again or to refer them to friends and family. If you are looking for a first rate, first class operation this is the company you want to use. You will not be disappointed!
Hiring Auto Appraise was easily one of the best decisions I've ever made. Jennifer was super knowledgeable, communicative and exceeded my expectations. I've never had to hire an independent appraiser before so I was very nervous and didn't know what to expect. After totaling my car and fighting for 4 weeks to get my insurance company to offer me the fair market value of my vehicle, I was getting nowhere. My car was 20 yrs old and a rare model that was hard to find comparables for but I knew what my insurance was offering was WAY too low. Within just 1 minute of talking with Jennifer I knew she was someone I could trust to get me a fair and accurate appraisal, and skillfully and competently negotiate on my behalf. I'm SOOO glad I hired Auto Appraise. I definitely recommend them for anyone who was in the same position as me and needs an auto appraisal. They know their stuff and they do the work.
Auto Appraise is on your side - Your insurance is not on your side, and will try to low ball with cars that are not directly comparable. Auto Appraise helped me by increasing my vehicles valuation by $8000!
Jenny, Travis and the team were great throughout the process promptly answering any emails, phone calls, and questions I had throughout the process.
I cannot thank them enough for being on my side and sticking up for the little guy throughout my auto loss claim.

I had a collector car that had stated value insurance with Progressive. Progressive went very lowball on the value, and due to the scarcity of the car and the age/mileage it was impossible to find comps that would support my case. Auto Appraise was quick to respond to my case and for a very reasonable price did my appraisal and then did the negotiation with the Progressive Appraiser and settled the claim at almost 5 times what Progressive offered (reflecting the true value of the car). I would use this group for any project, not just after an accident but also to ensure that my coverage is validated and documented in advance for any future needs. Could not recommend more highly, a class act.
I recently worked with Auto Appraise, Inc. to help me with a dispute with my insurance company over the total value of my car. I cannot recommend them enough! Their team was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. Thanks to their expertise, they were able to increase the insurance company's payment by almost $6,000 more than their initial offer. I am so grateful for their help and couldn't have done it without them. Auto Appraise, Inc. is truly amazing and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of an independent appraiser. Thank you again for your help!
Appraisal was completed quickly with a professional appearance, as well as attached credentials for the loan committee. Jason and Jennifer were great to deal with. I had though I knew quite a bit about Mopars before speaking with Jason. Fount of information. I would certainly recommend.
I was very concerned about buying a 50 year old vehicle sight unseen. My wife didn't understand why hiring Auto Appraise would be helpful. After viewing the video and seeing the quality and depth of pictures we were both impressed. Jason (the owner) did a great in-depth review of the car I was interested in. He answered all of the questions I was concerned about and more. My wife now understands the value a business like Auto Appraise adds to making a big money decision. I would not hesitate to use Jason again.
I would like to thank Jason and his team for the exceptional work they do for people who can't put their own eyes on the possible investment they are looking to purchase. My son has been looking for the ideal square body Chevy ever since he got his license and when it came down to a couple that he liked we were given an extensive list of people to go and inspect vehicles for out of state purchasers. Going through the list I noticed that Jason had a Youtube channel so I checked it out and while I was watching one of his inspections my son came home from work and asked what I was watching so I told him it was one of the people on the list I was given. So we watch a couple more and Jake ( my son ) said dad I want him to do the inspection I said it might be pricey but he didn't care he said that is what we would do if it were close enough for us to go but times 10. Even though we didn't go with that truck Jason was still available to help with the one he did buy telling us all of the little things to ask and look for that the average guy wouldn't think about doing. Thank you for everything and going above and beyond your work is priceless in our eyes. I will pay what ever the price to have Jason inspect my next purchase even if it is close enough for me to look at myself. This is the Truck he decided on purchasing this is his investment.
Thanks so much
Jake and Sean
It feels difficult these days to find a company with a great customer centric approach but Auto Appraise is one of those exceptions. I cannot stress how professional, responsive & authentic this company was to deal with (i dealt with Jennifer Bell). The outcome was even more impressive where the team were able to secure $13k (yes 13 THOUSAND!!!) more than the insurance were originally willing to pay out for a totaled but somewhat unique Subaru STI. Dont hestitate....give them a call.
I don’t often write reviews, however I really felt compelled to write these folks a good review. I can’t ever remember having such a wonderful customer service experience. These guys mean business! They took my info did the appraisal and I received it back the next day. Knowing it would be a week before I got it done i was prepared to wait. Jennifer did not disappoint. She is absolutely wonderful to deal with, explained everything to me and kept in touch via email til it was done. I can’t say enough about this company. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed thank you.
THE BEST!!!! Jennifer is absolutely the BEST! A HUGE thank you to her for her support in making our dream a reality! This company is hands down one of the best customer services experiences I have ever had! Jennifer and Team were super responsive, and helpful! It felt like we were working with family and friends, the level of support was REAL and I just cannot say enough good things about them! I will be referring them to everyone I know for car, sprinter van build out, etc. appraisals! I hope I get the chance to work with them again in the future!
I had an amazing experience with Auto Appraise. Jennifer, the Manager, offered me a free consultation. You can tell she has been doing this a long time and gave me so much good advice! Our appraisal and settlement went smoothly, and the appraiser was able to get me quite a bit more than the insurance company offered. I am already planning on getting my cars appraised with them for insurance value!
Jennifer responded to my 2am inquiry at 10:19 the next morning,answered all my questions,even reviewed my valuation report & my own research before taking the case,&very honestly shared that while I might net a little more than the initial offer,the difference in valuations was close enough that the settlement might not be worth it.I didn't much like my insurance's take it or leave it attitude after 25+ years of loyalty,&was battling them over another vehicle,so we moved forward. Once I supplied the necessary paperwork & paid the invoice (which took some doing because it went to spam first, but we worked together to find that),Travis hopped right on the job&had a detailed&thorough appraisal done in a few days.Jennifer made prompt contact with their original appraiser,who then dropped off the map. Nearly 50 emails&6 wks later, through a truly comedic process with my insurance (changed claims reps without notifying me,new claims rep called to find out where the car was-in their storage lot-their appraiser went AWOL-the claims rep has since asked me 2 more times if I have the car&where it is), AutoAppraise hooked up with the new appraiser, and the process went off without a hitch from there. I ended up with $2000 more than the offer & only $1000 less than the appraisal, so even with fees I was still ahead $1300, & I learned a lot about the process, which we used to net $5000 more on my other car (another comedy of errors). And to think I didn't even know about the appraisal clause before this... The professionalism displayed by Jennifer (staying on top of both cars through all the hiccups -assuring me they weren't normal- & 3 of my own family crises-including my own hospitalization), Angel (promptly sent me copies of my receipts when I couldn't find the third charge on my statement), &Travis (who provided TWO awesome appraisals) through this process has been outstanding & in stark contrast to that displayed by my insurance. Do it again with them? A resounding YES!
I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer for my auto appraisal. My 25 year old truck was involved in an accident, and my insurance company was trying to pay me half of what it was worth. I hired Auto Appraise as an independent appraiser and couldn’t be happier. Jennifer was incredibly professional, and was able to get back to me quickly with her appraisal. She helped work with my insurance company and negotiated what I felt was a very fair price for my vehicle’s value. I would highly recommend their services here!
I truly hit the lottery when I found Auto Appraise Inc! I cannot boast enough for their incredible professionalism, ultimate expertise, excellent customer service and responsiveness to my particular circumstance! Auto Appraise Inc., was extremely key in helping me resolve successfully, a very critical and frustrating issue regarding the mistakenly under-valuation of my 1974 Ford Gran Torino "Starsky and Hutch" car by an insurance agent, which I had been dealing with for over a year! Another driver had struck my collectible vehicle and refused to satisfy the claim, which would have rendered my car as 'salvaged'!
I searched desperately to find an appropriate professional at a decent cost and running out time since I needed to Register my vehicle within the month but WITHOUT the devaluing 'salvage' status on the Title! I was very fortunate to have discovered Auto Appraise Inc via a 3rd party! My imperative mission to obtain a good appraisal was rewarded with the absolute Best auto appraiser I could ever have hoped for! Jason and Jennifer are the Best!!
Auto Appraise Inc. understood my predicament and swiftly accommodated, expertly advised and smoothly performed a complete 'full market valuation' and for my dispute', all in one week's time, enough time to receive an 'all clear' from my Auto INS Co to present to the DMV which wiped clean the 'salvage'/'total loss' status from my Gran Torino, Starsky and Hutch TV show car! A complete SUCCESS! I cannot thank Auto Appraise Inc enough for their fantastic, alacritous service! Thank YOU, Auto Appraise Inc!
After reading numerous 5-star reviews I decided to hire Auto Appraise to help me challenge my total loss claim. In the current truck market, I knew my truck was worth more than what was offered to me by my insurance company. Auto Appraise was able to get me $10K more than what Progressive originally assigned as the value of my truck! Jennifer was absolutely outstanding to work with. She provides fantastic customer service with fast response times. She thoroughly explained the process and answered all of my questions. An absolute joy to interact with!
I decided to contest the total loss amount State Farm provided. I am so happy and grateful I went with Auto Appraise. They were able to get me $3500 more than the original settlement State Farm wanted me to take.
They are also a pleasure to work with. Jennifer answered almost all of my calls immediately and the company was easy to reach during the day. The appraisal report provided about 6 similar cars in this area with prices well above their initial offer.
If you get a low-ball settlement offer, I would recommend their service. I have a few thousand more to work with on my next auto purchase.
IT WAS MONEY WELL SPENT!
