A BIG THANK YOU to Jason for another Fine JOB /Settlement against All State. I Highly Recommend this Gentleman to anyone regarding Insurance totalization of ones vehicle . He helped me with a car settlement back in 2002 and now 2017. Again Thanks Jason for a job well done! Well worth my Money!

Auto Appraise handled my case with efficacy and great results! Joe appraised my vehicle with attention to detail and a precise valuation. Jennifer answered all my questions and guided me step by step to bring about a swift, fair and reasonable resolution to my claim. Thank you!

A friend warned me insurance companies will low ball total loss settlements...Liberty Mutual did exactly that. Offered $3,300 for my totalled 04 Camry XLE that was in pristine condition pre-accident. No one I knew ever had this, but it seems pretty common. Thank goodness I found Auto Appraise. From the beginning, they were very helpful, professional and ended up getting me the NADA book valid the above mentioned friend said I should expect. The downside it that it cost me money to get a fair settlement from Liberty Mutual, but the up side is the cost gave me about $2,000 net more in the well spent! Thank you Team Auto Appraise! You all did great!����

Called Auto Appraise to get an out of state pre purchase inspection on a 69 dodge at a classic car dealer. Auto Appraise gave me an extremely thorough, detailed inspection report with hundreds of photos, a video with verbal explanation during the video on findings, positives, negatives, etc and direct personal phone conversations on the condition after the inspection was completed. Extremely knowledgeable, quick service. I have used other companies that offer similar services but Auto Appraise by far is the best. Will definitely use them again in the future.

My auto insurance (GEICO) tried to low-ball me. I was confused, angry, and helpless. I researched and found Auto Appraise, Inc. They were greatly helpful with quality customer service. I didn't even need to go to their office, every thing was lightning fast, from appraising my 2014 Nissan Altima to representing me against GEICO's appraiser. My appraiser Autumn Durhring was highly dependable professional who regularly updates me on followups and finally completed the settlement $1200 above my original demand to the incompetent (or immoral cheaters) adjusters over at GEICO, @ $17200.

Thanks much Autumn.

Firstly, Rachel went above and beyond with my case. I had requested an auto appraise from paid them in full for an auto appraisal required by my bank for an auto loan. They sent over the appraisal to my bank but it was missing key information like their license number, the home address and many details, the appraisal looked like it was done by a middle school student doing a report on a car. It was very simple, did not state many details or even pictures of the vehicle. Needless to say it did not get approved solely on the appraisal. I had reached out to Rachel prior to using auto appraise by accident trying to reach the original appraiser. Even though I had already paid the other appraisal Rachel still went out of her way to make sure everything was done correctly. That was incredibly helpful even though I didn't use her company she still wanted to know that everything went well. After the back and fourth with the other appraisal and not getting anywhere I decided to try auto appraise simply because Rachel had been so helpful before. I paid in full for the appraise they sent it over to my bank and not one detail was missing. Their estimate was very very detailed with all their contact info, license numbers in order, every aspect of the appraisal was professional and complete and now I am behind the wheel of a very beautiful 66 mustang thanks to Rachel and auto appraise I highly recommend them and do not go anywhere else you will regret it and lose your money and waste your time

I was scouring the internet in search of getting a vehicle appraisal for my 1989 Mustang GT for insurance purposes. I happened upon the Auto Appraise web site, and gave them a call. Bingo! Exactly what I was looking for. From my first phone contact with Debi, thru my email contacts with Jennifer, to Jason's appraisal report...nothing short of professional! [Debi's inside info on classic car insurance was greatly appreciated.] I highly recommend their online appraisal option. It is affordable, easy to navigate and submit, and the results are delivered promptly in an impressive professional appraisal report. Exactly what my insurance agent needed to write a classic car policy for me. THANKS ya'll! I would recommend and definitely use your services again in the future.

I was looking to refinance my van but the bank could not factor the wheelchair accessibility conversion into the appraisal. I came to Auto Appraise and the appraisal value of the vehicle almost tripled the price of what the bank was stating my vehicle was worth because the bank was not equipped to factor in this modification. This helped me refinance the vehicle easily. They were very professional and kept in contact with me via email and phone. The process was fast and within the week I had the appraisal after the guy came out to take the photos of the vehicle. This happened a couple of days after I contacted them. I scheduled the time that was convenient to me and they obliged.

I highly recommend Auto Appraise for people looking for loans/refinance of non-stock items that banks may not be equipped to value themselves.

I have a 1967 Sport Fury and a 1967 4 door Hard Top Fury III. When I called to ask some questions about my cars, the secretary ask me to hold on and the owner of the company came to the phone we talked about my cars, there possible value with all of its options that came on such cars in 1967. ( especially the Sport Fury) The owner and the secretary were very polite to try and help me Resolve my questions with my cars, to obtain a value and which avenue to explore to possibly sell my cars, I gladly appreciate their knowledge and expertise of vehicles I would recommend them to my friends and family.

I called a week ago. I was advised they were out to lunch and I'd receive a call back. It's a LONG lunch. No call back moving on to another company with reliability. Thanks for nothing!

Hi Dee- I am so sorry that you apparently slipped through the cracks! I can certainly understand your frustration, and wish it had been brought to my attention before now. Looking through our call tracker, I cannot seem to find anybody named Dee in our caller logs or database in the past 90 days, so hopefully this review was actually meant for us! I would love to be given the opportunity to make it up to you, if you are still in need of service, or ever need appraisal service in the future. If you would like to call or email my office, they will give you my personal cell phone, and I will extend to you a very discounted offer to win back a 2nd chance to show you that we are the very best at what we do! Again Dee, please accept my apology and have a blessed New Year! Thank you, Jason Phillips, Owner.

I am an out of area buyer that was looking for assistance in a purchase. I found Jason's company and read the reviews and they are all TRUE! Jason personally went out and inspected the vehicle. His attention to detail was more than perfect. I felt as though I was standing beside him during the entire inspection and it left no questions in my mind as to the condition of the vehicle. As I continue to grow my collection this will be my first call!

Adam P.



This guy was awsome. Saved me a lot of money. Gave me great expertise advise. One of coolest guys in the business. I recommend him highly for any reason you'd need an appraiser. Great job!!!!!!

I was ready to purchase a 1976 Bronco because there was already so many detailed pictures and even a youtube video. . Jason the owner inspected the truck personally and I could never have been happier with the results. Jason contacted me the morning of the inspection. He asked if I would prefer a video of the inspection compared to a long written report. Being a more visual and auditory learner I decided to go with the video inspection. Watching the video made me feel as though I was right there with him inspecting the truck! In the end as a result of this incredibly prompt and informative expereince I did not purchase the Bronco. As a result I have already found a much better one for the same price and you guessed it I plan on using his services again. So if your planning on purchasing a classic car or truck online, pay the extra money to have Team Auto Appraise check it out first, because they are on your team and want to help you to find your true prize!

Jason gave me good general advice helping me get an extra 1,000 on my beloved late Honda. Wonderful to talk to a person that knows their job, gave a follow up call and their momma raised them right. Icing on the cake that he could make me laugh after a stressed out day . Judy Black

Simple, efficient and informative. Jason and his team were professional and thorough. Jason spent time with me on the phone prior to the inspection, sent me hundreds of photos as well as a video report. Even after that I had a few questions. He returned my call and took time to answer my questions and even gave me a few pointers as to how to handle a few minor issues with the vehicle. Job well done. I will certainly use Jason again.

Ethel P.



Jason went above and beyond the call of duty in providing such an excellent appraisal that my bank had no problem loaning me the amount needed for a much-needed wheelchair-accessible van! The fact that he made this a priority made me doubly grateful, as I can now easily take my husband everywhere we need and want to go. Auto Appraise truly cares about their customers and I would highly recommend them to anyone! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Jason Phillips of Auto Appraise Inc did an outstanding job when I was recently considering a classic car purchase. I live in CA and was looking at a car in the MI area. I reached out to Jason for an evaluation of the car and he setup an inspection within a couple of days. He did a very thorough evaluation of the car and was able to send me a detailed report in less time than expected. His report was all I needed to help me determine if this was the car for me. I did end up buying the car and Jason was an integral part of the process. Would highly recommend him for anyone's auto appraisal needs.

Scott P.



When I purchase a car I like to inspect it and go over it personally. Unfortunately I was unable to inspect one that was out of my area and hired Jason from Auto Appraise to look on my behalf. I was blown away by the reports, photos and video that he prepared. He went far exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend and use in the future. 5 Stars is not enough to describe the amazing service he provided.

I have been looking for a classic car for 3-4 months. I am from NY and found one at a dealership in Ga. I called Jasons company figuring better to have it checked out by a professional than me flying down to Ga. Boy was that a great decision ! the inspection and pics were so thorough that I would have missed 90% of what their inspector found and would have ended up paying full price for the car, then when you added in all the repairs Jasons guys found that the car needed I would of been way past my budget and way past what the car was worth ! I will keep looking for my dream car, and will not be buying anything without Jasons people checking the car out first that's for sure ! I usually never write reviews, but I was so impressed with their service I felt I had to write this, and again for what they did the price was extremely reasonable and money well spent ! Thank you guys for protecting my interests, and saving me from making a huge mistake. John Whitton

Jason and the crew at Auto Appraise are top notch. One of my life long dreams has been to own a first generation Camaro, and wouldn't you know it...I found one! The guy was wanting to get rid of it quickly because he was retiring from the Marine Corps and his wife certainly didn't want to deal with an older vehicle...he only wanted 15k for a running, driving, great condition 1969 SS!!!

The bank approved my loan on the condition that I get it appraised, which threw a wrench into my plans as he wanted to get rid of it ASAP and I didn't want him taking it back to the mainland and getting well over 20k for it.

I promptly emailed Auto Appraise with the required documents and Jason took the time out of his whole weekend to help me by asking questions, and providing thorough and honest feedback. I was standing outside the bank Monday morning with an appraisal in my hand, and I drove it home later that day.

You're dealing with people who like cars as much as we do.
