Auto Appraisal Carolinas performs appraisals on all sorts of vehicles including late model cars, trucks, antique autos, classic cars, muscle cars, exotics, street rods, kit cars, motorcycles, etc.   


We perform many types of Appraisals:

Pre-Purchase Inspection

We help you buy a used or classic vehicle with confidence.


A certified agent conducts an in depth inspection of your vehicle and creates a 10 page report that includes:

  • Vehicle condition and trouble areas

  • Paint gauge readings to find repaint and body filler

  • 53 point in depth inspection

  • 50-100 detailed photographs of the vehicle's condition

  • Inspect title,  registration. and other documentation

  • Operation and test ride

  • Originality and decoding of identify numbers (optional)


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (DOT) may require some vehicles to initiate a new title.  For example, on a custom built vehicle, when the original title is lost, when a vehicle is brought into NC without proper documentation. 


We specialize in DOT initial title appraisals.  Part of our service is guiding you through the complex initial titling process.  We have a relationship with another appraisal company, that allows us to arrange the required second appraisal for you at a discount.
