I highly recommend Auto Appraise Inc. to anyone who needs an appraisal.
They were very helpful and did a lot more than just provide me with an appraisal. They have helped me with the letters for the insurance company and complaint with the department of insurance.
Jennifer was very helpful in explaining all the steps l had to take with the diminished value claim. She guided me through the whole process and was very patient with me :)
I had to take my case to the court and the judge was very impressed with Mr. Phillips’s appraisal as well as his experience and knowledge!
I was impressed and l am very thankful for his help as an expert witness. He did everything to help me even though we didn’t had a lot of time to prepare for the proof hearing.
Professional, knowledgeable, the best!!

I had been in an accident in march of 2019. my insurance told me my 2009 chevy cobalt ss was totaled and that it
valued at $4100. they wrote up two different reports of similar cobalts for sale but upon my reviewing these reports those cobalts didnt exist they just took a bunch of cobalt ss vin numbers to make a bogus reports so they could low ball my cars value. so i found auto appraise online. The reviews i read sounded exactly like what i was going through. so after contacting auto appraise and their team fighting for me i ended up with a value of $7,250 wich is spot on for current supersport cobalt sale prices if i hadnt called and just gave in to my insurance company i would still have a wrecked car and be out $3,000 plus. Thank you auto appraise team you guys are life savers!!!

I asked for a complete appraisal to numbers match and date code a 1968 Shelby GT 500. Jason was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and incredibly responsive. From the time I contacted him to a final summary and documentation was less than 28 hours. Thank you. I will be calling again to use Jason on more classic cars. His photos and video documentation is exhaustive and meticulous.

Before auto appraise I didn't think anyone would understand me after a total loss. My vehicle was actually worth double then blue book in my area regardless of bb value. Hell even my friends and family thought that insurance companies couldn't be negotiated with and what you get is what you get, but I wasn't gonna take it. After deciding my vehicle was not valued what the insurance companies said it was(8,500), is when I found auto appraise. Don't ever give up if you believe you might be getting screwed from your insurance company, they are not on your side unless it's there to take your money. Now having said that I believe with my gut this company is the opposite and care about their customers satisfaction because they will get my future business. Having stood up for what I believe in got me an extra 5,000 dollars because auto appraise got me the FULL value of my vehicle that I almost got screwed out of!

This was my first but not last time to use Auto Appraise! Jason did an inspection on a 1948 L Type Allard. Not a vehicle you see every day! The photos he took were spot-on and the video, OH THE VIDEO! It captured exactly what I wanted and more. The road test was done on a cold rainy Grand Rapids afternoon. Truly, above & beyond expectations! This was the second time I had this same vehicle inspected within three days because I was concerned the first inspection Co. was not thorough or as knowledgable as I had hoped for. I was right based on the Auto Appraise inspection!
So, it was easy to compare one inspection against another. Hands down, Auto Appraise and specifically Jason exceeded all expectations and did a far better job than the other inspection company. My initial contact was Jennifer and she also did a great job in setting-up this inspection and seeing it through to the end.
If you want an inspection that will exceed your expectations, call Auto Appraise!

I called Auto Appraise on a whim following a recent car accident and was very impressed with their competent and supportive guidance. Staff took a substantial amount of time responding to my specific (and obscure) questions regarding claims procedures and auto valuation, demonstrating a clear commitment to my best interest, even prior to my becoming a customer. They laid out the info I needed clearly and thoroughly while referring me to my state's DOI for further confirmation. I feel much more reassured and empowered regarding an otherwise stressful situation. Thank you, Jason and Debi!

WOW! Jason Phillips and his staff at Auto Appraise are truly amazing! Just give them a call. REALLY! Don't worry if your not sure what questions to ask, they will guide you through everything and make sure you fully understand all aspects of your situation, whatever it may be. I travel a lot and I must say I feel like I have a good old friend in the auto everything business that I can call from anywhere at anytime. What a relief in this day and age. Thanks again Jason and company. Sincerely, JON. Phoenix, AZ

I ask them to email me a sample of their appraisal report. I do have professional one from insurance, so I would like to compare with theirs. I have call twice and both time they promise me they will email one. They never did, but they already info me how much they charge, so I said okay but want to see first how is yours appraisal looks like. Don't know if can be trust.

I have loved every minute of working with these great people. Jason, Melanie, Jennifer, and the rest of the team were always able to help me in a very timely fashion and answer any questions I had. Wish every business would learn a thing or two from these guys. Keep up the good work!

Jennifer, Joe and the whole auto appraise company were terrific!! I spent the last 4 months trying to verify my shelby gt mustang was an actual shelby. After all was said and done, auto appraise got me $8,000 more then the original cash value my insurance company tried to give me. This was my first experience with a total loss vehicle and thanks to this company, all my questions were answered and I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of. Thanks Jennifer for all your help!

I called Jason last Wed. and needed a quick inspection on Thursday. He pulled out all the stops and provided everything needed by late Thursday. Travis did an excellent job and spent more time than they estimated. I would highly recommend Auto Appraise for quick and excellent service.

Jason was great, my insurance offered me $34,500 for my 2015 435xi that was a total loss, and was able to do a quick few comparables, and was able to help me get $38,750 from insurance for my totaled car. Jason was very responsive and helpful. My insurance considered his appraisal credible enough that I was able to use the information Jason provided me to get my insurance to go up to a reasonable valuation without having to challenge their final offer. Without Jason, i would have taken $4k below the actual value of my car. Would definitely recommend him to anyone else having a similar issue. Appreciate all the work Jason!

This was my third time working with auto appraise.

I was interested in purchasing what looked like a well maintained out of state 2015 Lexus LS with low miles. However, I wanted to get it appraised for a number of reasons. One, I'm out of state. Two, pictures can be deceiving. 3) carfax and Autocheck do not tell the whole story. Long story short. Car fax showed one owner, no damage, low miles etc. Same for Autocheck. After Autopraise inspected the vehicle it showed previous damage to front and rear. Undercarriage showed damage. I received about 124 pictures which highlighted a number of scratches and blemishes close up.

The appraisal was well worth the investment! Again, my third time using Jason Phillips and his team at Auto Appraise. Glad I did. 100% satisfied!!

My auto insurance (Liberty Mutual) tried to low-ball me on a totaled auto claim. I researched and found Auto Appraise, Inc. First spoke with Melanie and she was great with explaining to me what my options were. It did take a little longer than I expected but that was probably due to end of December Holiday season. Jennifer was excellent with expediting my appraisal (due to rental car circumstance) for my 2013 Scion FRS and Joe for representing me against LM's appraiser. Jennifer was very helpful throughout the process and Joe finally completed the settlement for $3400 above my original offer from Insurance adjusters over at Liberty Mutual. Highly recommend Auto Appraise to anyone regarding Insurance totalization of one’s vehicle. Don't let your insurer give you far less than your car is worth, fight back and invoke your Appraisal Clause.

Thanks again Auto Appraise Team ,
Especially Jennifer and Joe

Having problems with your insurance company? Hire these guys. They get great results. Fight back..........don't let your insurer give you far less than your car is worth.

Jason Phillips of Auto Appraise was first class from start to finish.
I am located in MA and the vehicle was in Detroit.
Jason did a thorough inspection of the vehicle. He provided me with 248 pictures as well as a video of the entire car,outside, inside and underneath. I also saw how it test drived.
This showed me that this vehicle had the value and prestige I was looking for.
I knew that I was not wasting my time flying down there to purchase this classic car.
Jason as well as his staff were efficient,knowledgeable and expedient in every aspect.
I was provided with a written rating of every part of the car and a diagram with any imperfection to the vehicle.
I would strongly recommend Jason Phillips of Auto Appraise for anyone interested in purchasing a classic car.

Everything went smoothly. Jason and his team were polite, knowledgeable and professional. Received appraisal a little sooner than promised. Happy with transaction.

OMG I can't say enough about the fantastic team at Auto Appraise! Both Krys and Jennifer were always great to talk to; really nice and kept me up to date with what was going on.

I was the victim of a drunk driver hitting my parked vehicle and Esurance wanted me to just give into their ridiculous low pay out for my totaled vehicle. They made it as difficult as possible.

So I found and called Auto Appraise later in the afternoon on Friday 23rd 2017. Since I called later in the afternoon, I didn't expect to get the ball rolling until the following Monday; but that wasn't the case! Jennifer contacted me over the weekend and had the appraisal to me by Wednesday 28th 2017! I was impressed to say the least.

But that wasn’t even the best part. Jennifer gave me the information that changed the whole situation. She suggested I contact the Department of Insurance in my area; she even gave me the information on how to contact them. I called the department and they told me to file a complaint, and I did. Boy did Esurance jump on the case and want to get things moving quickly when I told them about the complaint I filed!

Esurance suddenly wanted to go to the next step of arbitration (which I was told they all most never do) and the Auto Appraise team got me a great final dollar amount for my vehicle. And once again, Jennifer gave me the information to get the entire appraisal out of pocket cost back from Esurance when they said they wouldn’t pay me back. Not only did she give me the information, she included the link to the Department of Insurance document where the information came from.

Now that’s going above and beyond! Jennifer and team really got me more than I would have gotten on my own and I’m more than appreciative of that. This is a team you want on your side.

Thanks guys - Traci
