When should you have your vehicle appraised for Insurance

June 5, 2012

This is a very rare vehicle a 1966 Acadian  Canso SD L79 one of only 83 every manufactured here in Canada with these specific options 2 door hard top with a 327 engine that produces 350 horsepower. This vehicle still has the original local owner who bought it from his brother back in 1966. I was provided today with the opportunity to review each component of this vehicle and provide my professional appraisal value of this vehicle in today's market.

I was totally impressed with the overall condition of this vehicle, how all the components where all original and the absolutely beauty and condition of this vehicle. He has modified the vehicle in some areas, such as adding a 4 speed Hurst shifter, new gauges and new carpet other then that it is all pretty much from day one. He also had the rear suspension leaf spring bushings replaced with "Polygrahite".

When should you have a vehicle appraised for Insurance reason, when ever you have a classical like the 1966 Acadian or any other classical car or truck that has more value then the Insurance company has knowledge of it's true market valued based on market reports at today's open market. The value of the vehicle is based on many factors of determining a true replacement value demand and supply, overall condition of the vehicle. What parts are original, replaced, modified and how the vehicle performance over all.

If you have a vehicle that is worth much more then your insurance company is willing to insure it for. Then you must supply your insurance company with a professional auto appraisal, with details, detailing each section of the vehicle from the Year, Make, Model and a break down of each section of the vehicle with a rating system that insurance company trust and understand. This will then allow the insurance company to meet or come closer to the value you wish to insure your vehicle to be insured for, with information that will make or break your wished valued.

Vital and important that your vehicle is covered for the correct amount of your investment, one never knows what could happen with out a proper appraisal you will be in the hands of the adjuster, and we all know one thing Insurance companies love your monthly premiums "BUT" hate to pay when the time comes and will do everything they can to keep the value at what they think the vehicles value is worth!
