There are many factors in determining the amount of depreciation, and whether or not your vehicle is a suitable candidate. Contact me for consultation.

Our reports when possible include my physical examination of the vehicle & repairs to verify it's condition, repair quality and highlight any deficiencies, unsafe /substandard repairs.
