Excellent across the board! Jason has been prompt, thorough and knowledgeable all while providing clear communication during the entire process.

Without the fine services of this company, I NEVER would have felt comfortable making such a large purchase, long distance.

But WITH Jason and his staff, they take all the question marks and guess work out, even BETTER than being able to personally inspect the vehicle myself.

I will not hesitate hiring Jason, or his company again the next time I purchase a car, even if it is local to me!

I can not recommend them higher!

Auto Appraise just completed a thorough inspection of a classic car for a discriminating overseas buyer. We couldn't be more pleased with the level of knowledge and detail in the presentation.

I found Jason and his company Auto Appraise to be very trustworthy, caring, professional and had great followed through. I was under stress going into my first ever purchase of a vintage car. Jason demonstrated he is a knowledgeable and good person that gave me comfort to close the deal and buy my dream car. His inspection video was awesome and fairly represented the car. I would strongly recommending using Jason and Auto Appraise to any of my friends and if I am in the market to buy or sell a vintage car again one day Jason will be the first person I call. .......

I hardly ever write reviews, even when I am satisfied with the product or service I just don't seem to find the time.

But this company deserves such a great review I don't know where to begin without sounding like a cheeseball.

you know when you are searching blindly for a company with a Google search such as "Best Classic Car Appraiser" and you contact several, call several and feel like you are going to end up paying through the nose or have no idea what quality service you will be getting. But then you find that one company who just shines from the second they pick up the phone you know you are in good hands and you can relax!! this was that company!! They went the extra mile from the moment I contacted them I knew I had chosen the right company. Jason, the owner really took care of me from start to finish and then provided an extra service to top it all off just to make sure I was getting the car as represented to me. I basically relied on this company to purchase a very expensive classic car from a seller located 2,000 plus miles away without ever seeing it myself in person. They made me feel so comfortable with the transaction I didn't feel the need to jump on a plane and inspect the car myself. They were so thorough!!! The report was by far the most comprehensive and most professional auto appraisal I have received thus far. You cannot go wrong, sorry for the long review but trust these people. They are honest, professional, thorough and prompt. They are on the ball. Thank you for helping me get the car of my dreams!!!

I have been dreaming of owning a muscle/classic car my whole life and have been scouring the various websites in search of one for over a year. I was ready to book a plane ticket to check one out in another state when I got cold feet. I realized I had no expertise and was about to make a decision based on that. I found Auto Appraise via Hemmings and hired Jason to advise me. The dealer knew and respected Jason and I was amazed at the detail he provided me: over 200 photos, a video and a written report - all for the cost of my plane ticket and car rental.

He put my mind completely at ease and I decided to purchase the car. I would highly recommend Jason and his staff to anyone who is considering hiring an expert for anything related to the purchase of a classic car.

I have rarely written a review of a company's performance and service, but was so overwhellmingly impressed by my experience with Jason,Jennifer and Debbie and the entire staff I dealt with, that this is my poor attempt at praise. I have been dealing with finance issues due to an illness and needed my current automobile to be apraised. From the very first moment I spoke to Debbie till the last conversation I had with Jason, I was treated with compassion coupled with their encompassing knowledge of Appraisal. Due to the financial situation I found myself in, there was a misunderstanding on the part of my legal representative and I had to ask Jason for a few different types of Appraisal. The staff and Jason replied to my inquiries almost immediately ( Jason even interrupted a long overdue vacation to respond to my request- I don't think I have ever had that happen) and solved all the peculiarities of my complicated issues. I cannot recommend them highly enough and want to leave on this page one more " thank you".

Jason and his team are the best. I was in the market for a classic automobile (pre-WWII) and utilized Jason's service to inspect four out-of-state possible automobiles for purchase. Buying a vintage automobile for me was a considerable investment for me and not having the time or the knowledge to thoroughly inspect a vehicle, I realized I needed an expert. Not only was Jason instrumental in inspecting an automobile to meet my needs, he also worked as the liaison between purchaser and seller ensuring that title to the vehicle was valid and not encumbered. He also recommended an automobile shipper and coordinated the delivery of the vehicle to my home. I could not have made this purchase without Auto Appraise and recommend them without qualification to anyone in need of vehicle purchase services. Michael O. Westchester, IL

I am a repeat customer and recently had Auto Appraise conduct a pre-purchase inspection. for a vehicle listed on Ebay. Auto Appraise completed a thorough inspection within a short auction time frame. I decided not to bid on this particular vehicle after reviewing the report. I avoided making a purchase that I would have regretted. I will use Auto Appraise in the future without hesitation.

I will have to say going in blind to an appraisal situation that mr.phillips personally guided and help me through the process and went above and beyond for me . I would not hesitate to contact them again thanks again Jason


This was my first experience with an auto appraisal service and I will state that it was an enjoyable and pleasant experience. My vehicle inspector, Travis Williams, was very accommodating by offering to re-schedule the original inspection date from a Friday to the following Monday due to inclement weather. Travis informed me that he would be taking photos of my 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am and that the car would photograph better in natural light versus indoor garage lighting. Travis was on time for the re-scheduled appointment and very pleasant to deal with. His inspection was very detailed and thorough. After I received the final appraisal report and appraised value, I was satisfied with both. Lastly, it was gratifying to know that Travis was also a classic muscle car enthusiast as he relayed to me that he restored a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. Would gladly recommend Auto Appraise to others that live I the classic world.

My insurance co. offered me 4600 4100 with a 500ded. for my 2007 chrysler 300. i asked the adjuster if he could do a little better .he said that was all he could offer..I felt like he was low balling me so i contacted auto appraise. Mrs. Autumn Durhring WITHIN 5 days i recieved a settlement of 6900..this is an amazing company.i know there are other people out there like me.the insurance co. will get over on u if u let them. Auto appraise can help u like they helped me..thanks again MRS AUTUMN DURHRING, AND DEBI PHILLIPS. U ARE GREAT PEOPLE

Not one to write reviews but Mr. Phillips and his crew made my classic car buying transaction easy. Military friendly and very insightful. I highly recommend auto appraise.

Karen K.



Awesome company. Very professional. We bought a car out of state based on his thorough inspection. We were amazed at the detail of his video and pictures provided. Worry free.

My car was a total loss from progressive. Through the help of auto appraise I got a lot more than the low ball from the insurance company who didn't understand how rare my car was. Jason put in a ton of work to get a true market value and moved quickly. I'd highly recommend using them and I will again.

I was told not to use an auto appraiser to get info on a car I wanted to buy that 2000 miles away. I decided to use Auto Appraise anyway and boy am I glad I did.

Everyone I dealt with was great and very professional. They answer their phones quickly and helped me through the entire process. Jason spent many hours inspecting the antique car I wanted to buy and the report was incredibly thorough. He took several hundred photos of the car so I could see exactly what was done in the restoration process.

When I needed an appraisal amount in a hurry they got it done. Now I can purchase the car with confidence and use their appraisal to insure the car properly. I would highly recommend them.

This company is amazing they did great work and i couldnt have asked for anything more the ownee jason is a very down to earth guy and will do anything to meet your needs great service

David W.



Could not have been more pleased with the service. The insurance company was trying to rip me off for thousands on a totaled vehicle. Thanks to I got a reasonable settlement. I would recommend them.

Jason and his staff were able to arrange an inspection on short notice, just before the holiday, and bad weather. Very impressive and detailed written report, along with over 300 photos and a video of the test drive. You could not ask for a more thorough pre-purchase inspection - more than I could have done in person. Ended up using the inspection for some last minute price negotiations, saving me money and heartbreak in the whole transaction. Well worth the price over other inspection services, if you are making a purchase of a higher end vehicle, or collector type car. Highly recommend Auto Appraise - AA++


I was very pleased with the staff at Auto Appraise. Jason did a very thorough written report,great photos and a video. Very well done. I would certainly use them again.
