An appraisal is the best way to get the most accurate car value for insurance claims Rhode Island offers. You can shop for insurance quotes all you want, but when you have an accurate, independent valuation of your vehicle in-hand, you’re better prepared to shop for the right vehicle coverage at the right price. You can go to insurance companies confidently and know what your vehicle is worth so that you don’t pay for coverage that you don’t need or premiums that are too high. 

A professional, experienced appraiser will go over your vehicle inch-by-inch to determine if there are any cosmetic or mechanical problems. These play an important role in determining the value of the vehicle. They examine every part of the vehicle carefully, so you know you’re getting an accurate appraisal, especially since they compare your vehicle and its condition to comparable sales in our extensive database. 

You want to avoid having an insurance appraiser appraise your vehicle, especially if it is a custom or classic car. They are not likely well-versed in how to value customizations and modifications accurately. That means that a value of your vehicle could be listed in your insurance policy or a quote for much less than it’s truly worth. 

If you are thinking about purchasing a vehicle, getting an appraisal also makes sense so that you can learn about any problems the vehicle has before you spend thousands of dollars on it. You can also take the appraisal to different insurance companies to learn what you can expect to pay in insurance premiums as well. 

Getting an accurate value for your vehicle isn’t an easy process. You can try to research it yourself, but you likely don’t have access to information that truly affects its value. For example, if the vehicle has been in an accident, how extensive was the damage? What is the quality of the repairs that were done? These details can change the value of a vehicle significantly.
