 Be prepared for a nightmare should anything happen to your beauty. We have witnessed thousands of worst-case scenarios. The small cost of having us legally document the value of your vehicle has saved our clients much time, money and aggravation. Other reasons are pre-purchase research/documentation, negotiation, arbitration, court, estate settlements, divorce and liquidation.

Pre-Purchase and Liquidation

Most of our clients prefer discretion when buying or liquidating. They count on us to find the best overall deal for them. We have performed this service well generations. We also offer public, on-site auction services for expediting liquidation. Contact us for a free consultation before buying or selling.

Vehicle Research/Car History

Some offer generic research that leaves out many unreported details that can turn into major problems. We can often find your vehicles history including where it was built, what dealer first sold it, who has owned it and most importantly, who has serviced or repaired it. The information is out there in our 90+ years of reliable contacts and network. We have retrieved accurate information for the United States Supreme Courts and attorneys.

Insurance Claims

If you are involved in an automobile related insurance claim, call us before calling anyone . Did you know what you say to others regarding anything to do with a claim almost always comes back to affect a fair and timely resolve? We have saved many clients time, money and frustration by simply knowing what to say and when to say it because we know the insurance industry inside and out. We can  guide you through the process or act as your legal representative, as we have in thousands of cases.
