Ever buy a vehicle unseen? Answer an ad in the newspaper, Old Cars Weekly, Hemmings, Cars and Parts, ETS, E-Bay, the Internet or elsewhere? How accurate were the pictures you received? Did you get what you expected? Potential buyers need an appraisal prior to purchase to save them time and money. Have you ever seen a notice for a vehicle for sale and became very disappointed when you actually saw it? Getting a qualified appraiser to look at the vehicle can save you time and/or an expensive trip. A pre-purchase appraisal will also give you bargaining power and leverage to negotiate the price.
