Can be a dream come true...

A pre-purchase appraisal can be very helpful when purchasing a specialty car, truck, motorcycle, or boat. The appraisal can be used to assess the fariness of the asking price, validate the vehicle's representation in advertising, and help secure financing.

A pre-purchase appraisal could protect you against overpaying for a vehicle. It can also make a seller more reasonable in the asking price.

Pre-purchase appraisals can also help prevent fraud. If you are planning to buy a vehicle over the internet, have a local I-VAN appraiser do a pre-purchase appraisal to ensure that the vehicle has been properly represented in its advertising.

An I-VAN appraisal can also establish the loan value if you are planning to finance part of the purchse.

Selling a Collector Vehicle

An appraisal can be a tremendous help when selling a collector vehicle. It eliminates a lot of haggling or “negotiating” because the vehicle’s market value has been established. Offering the vehicle for sale at or below the appraised value gives a prospective buyer peace of mind that he is getting a good value.

A qualified buyer can use the appraisal to get a loan from his bank, and other lending institutions, to assist in buying your vehicle (many financial institutions will loan up to 80% of our appraised value).
