Not sure just what forum to post this in but....

I have a buddy that needs an appraisal on his 33 for his insurance company. He has called all arounf here and can't find a sole that can do it. My question is what dose it take to apprais a car and is there a certain form or format that needs to be submitted. I know what the car is worth, can I do it? :confused:

It looks just like they created the form locally, just to do classic car appraisals..

Since our guys here have so much experience, on Trifive Chevy's, then some of our members should be qualified to do appraisals especially on Trifives.

Since they base the appraisal on the average sale price since the cars are not listed in any blue books etc.

Most insurance companies, as I understand it set the amount on a classic car based on appraised value.

Maybe some of our members can share more information in this area, I don't know a lot, but I was approached a couple years ago buy a classic car repair person asking me if I could make him a form that could be used to appraise classic cars, so he could make some extra money doing appraisals.

So how about some more info from our member’s maybe some of our guys can start doing appraisals.

Is their a appraisal license and if so where can you get one?

Otis i like the looks of that form. Let`s keep pursuing this since i and probably countless others are either at that point or getting closer to that stage of the game.

Otis,

That form was just what we needed. I ran it through a word processor and it will do the trick.

Thanks for all your help guys!

I checked with an Lawyer friend of mine that specialises in Auto cases etc.

And he told me since the cars are so old and are not listed in the Blue Book etc.

That anyone can fill out an appraisal form, and that insurance companies look at the form and decide if they agree with the appraisal amount or not, because the insurance simply writes insurance based a value amount, and that usually the classic cars only go up in Value.

And that the appraiser does not need a license.

So what I am going to do is make a Form and put it on here so our members can use it to either appraise their cars, or if they have enough experience start making a few bucks doing apprasals locally.

Of course Trifive.com does not stand behind the apprasals , we are just going to try to provide a form and some guidelines that a person may or may not use or agree with.

I would like to have your opinions on this idea please.
