Classic, Vintage, Late Model, Show, Investment Corvette Expert Appraisal

Corvette Appraisals

Do you need a valuation or appraisal for your classic, vintage, investment, late model or show Corvette?

  • Is this documentation required for insurance purposes, in preparation for an estate sale, or to establish a value in order to sell your Corvette?

  • Perhaps you are unclear about the market value of your corvette?

  • Do you have a special or rare car with unusual options which is hard to value?

  • How much does an original drivetrain impact the value of your corvette? How about paperwork? Does that matter?

  • If are unsure about any of the above questions, the answer is the same for all of them. The experts at VetteWork!
Corvette Appraisals

If you have you inherited a car or collection you will need a valuation help BEFORE you call a dealer. Only then can you be informed about a fair market value.

Let the experts at VetteWork

help you with your Corvette Appraisal needs.

What You Might Not Know

Are you aware of current wholesale (dealer) and private party (retail) prices? Are they different? Why?

Retail Pricing

A dealer will not pay retail, simply because they cannot make a profit on the vehicle. And of course they use the "ago old" sales tactics stating they will have a hard time selling the vehicle so they are the ones taking the risk.

Direct to Dealers

Selling direct to dealers is an option and has some benefits such as the time it takes to complete the transaction, but this option has a drawback in that you may not realize the highest possible resale price.

All owners/sellers have different reasons for getting an appraisal.

Guessing on the value and then placing a classified ad is generally not the best strategy. We regularly attend classic car auctions, so we are aware of current values. You risk under-valuing the vehicle by thousands of dollars by not obtaining an appraisal.

In Person vs Internet

Our Corvette Appraisals are performed in-person, unlike our competition who either contract with third party vendors located throughout the country who know very little about corvettes or appraise vehicles from pictures while sitting in a remote office.

Expert vs Inexperience

Our competition sends an “appraiser” to do a cursory review. Unfortunately this “expert” has rarely, if ever, appraised a corvette and has no clue what they are looking at.

Incomplete vs Complete

The result is either an incomplete or inaccurate appraisal value. Don’t risk discovering AFTER you bought the car that you overpaid.

Value vs Knowledge

So, before you look up online values, before you call your brother-in-law, before you log on to the online forums to consult the “internet judges” and before you call a dealer, I suggest we talk first. Once you have an independent evaluation, you will be armed with the knowledge you need to move forward.

What You Can Expect From Us

Without giving away all of our secrets of what makes us the top and most sought after Corvette Appraisal Company in the United States, we have provided a small list below of the basics of what you can expect from the inspection process. In addition, you can also expect a market value approach based upon our expert opinion. After you contact Vettework, an Appraisal Inspection Agreement is forwarded to you to execute and any lifts or method to raise the height of the car to inspect the chassis is the owner’s responsibility.

INSPECTION AGREEMENT

After you contact Vettework, a Pre-Purchase Inspection Agreement is forwarded to you.

CUSTOMER CONTACT

You contact the owner and receive permission to have the vehicle(s) inspected.

INSPECTION DETAILS

You return the executed agreement, the details of the location of the vehicle(s), contact information of the owner.

MECHANICAL INSPECTION

We do a full and comprehensive inspection on the chassis, interior, exterior and all mechancials looking for damage, authenticity and possible fraud.

ROAD TEST

We road test the vehicle when possible and complete a thorough operations check to confirm all switches and controls function as they were originally designed, intended and expected.

INSPECTION DATE

We then do our best to arrange a date as soon as possible for the Corvette inspection that is convenient for us and them.

VEHICLE HISTORY

ALL Modifications, replacement parts, collision repairs, defects, fluid leaks, rust or corrosion, if detected, will be noted and photographed.

INSPECTION REPORTS

After we have finished the Pre-Purchase Inspection, we provide a comprehensive written report with all the data we collected as well as highly detailed photographs outlining what we found.

What to look out for

Corvette Appraisal FraudOur competition either contracts with third party vendors located throughout the country who know very little about corvettes or appraises vehicles from pictures while sitting in a remote office. Our competition sends an “appraiser” to do a cursory review. Unfortunately, this “expert” has rarely, if ever, appraised a classic corvette and has no clue what they are looking at. Go online and read their unsatisfactory reviews to learn more about these outfits. The result is either an incomplete or inaccurate appraisal value. Don’t risk discovering AFTER you have sold the car that the value these clowns quoted was far below the actual market value costing you thousands of dollars! But, they were cheap, right? Wrong, they cost you money!! So, before you look up online price guide values that are so generic they are useless, before you call your brother-in-law who "knows a guy", before you log on to the online forums to consult the “internet judges” and before you call a dealer, we suggest that we talk first. Once you have an independent evaluation, you will be armed with the knowledge, information and protection you need to move forward.
