Expert appraisal for your classic, antique, vintage, or late-model vehicle

Trust in our experience and automotive knowledge to produce a detailed, honest and objective valuation of your car.

Comprehensive, unbiased and accurate

An appraisal establishes the value of your car at any point in the past or present and can also forecast its future worth. Whether it’s for insurance purposes, estate planning, or an upcoming sale or purchase, a reliable up-to-date appraisal is an important part of owning a collectible vehicle. All Perry-Payne appraisals are compliant with the guidelines put forth by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

On Site Appraisal

After an initial conversation, we’ll schedule a time to inspect your vehicle, note its condition and capture photos.

Pre-purchase inspection

If you’re planning to purchase a vehicle, we’ll inspect it on your behalf, and provide a comprehensive written report.

Remote appraisal

When an on-site visit would be impractical, we’ll guide you through what we need for a USPAP-compliant appraisal.

Worth its weight in expertise

There is often a lot riding on a professional appraisal report. You may be required to produce one for estate planning, charitable contributions, estate or gift tax preparation liabilities, insurance or damage and loss claims, equitable distributions, fair rental and sale decisions, collateral loans, tax audits (foundations), and legal disputes. This is not the time to pinch pennies and settle for an amateur.

The Perry-Payne advantage

Reality shows can make an appraisal seem like nothing more than a “good once-over.” Given that the personal property appraisal field is largely unregulated, any so-called “appraiser” can provide a value opinion. Your report from Perry-Payne Appraisal reflects the extensive formal training in valuation methodology offered through the auspices of the American Society of Appraisers to create credible, USPAP-compliant documents. 

We’ll do everything we can to make sure you get the most out of your experience.
