LICENSED AND CERTIFIED AUTOMOBILE APPRAISERS IN ALL 50 STATES

Featured

In almost every state there are licensing requirements for automobile appraisers. A properly licensed appraiser is automatically certified as an expert in this field. In order to obtain an adjusters or appraisers license, one must pass background checks and demonstrate both integrity and expertise in order to remain in good standing. There are a number of private associations that advertise themselves as certified automobile appraisal entities but they are actually private companies that provide certifications for a fee. Most states require that an auto appraiser be licensed, successfully complete a course in auto appraisal, and pass a state board exam for appraising automobiles. Should a state-licensed automobile appraiser be found guilty of a serious infraction, he or she could be subject to having their licenses suspended. No such penalties exist with the private companies that claim to have certified automobile appraisers as members. Automobile appraisers can work on behalf of insurance companies as well as for individual vehicle owners. The types of appraisals they perform can range from damage estimating, to valuation appraisals and diminished value reports. When hiring an automobile appraiser, make certain that they have the proper credentials. A state-issued adjusters or appraisers license is the best proof that the automobile appraiser is qualified and that their reports will be accepted by insurers, magistrates and mediators.
