We’ve received several complaints in our office, mistaking our 22 year old local Michigan business http://www.autoappraise.com which IS a Michigan based corporation, for a Texas based firm Michigan-Autoappraisers. This is NOT US! We have nothing to do with this company, and have no idea who they are!! All we know is that their website was created in 2012 from their Houston Texas IP address. Their website serves you testimonials from alleged Michigan consumers, but none of them with last names or contact info that can be identified. As a Michigan consumer, please be diligent and do your own homework! This company can’t help you locally in Mi. Remember, as Michigan residents, we don’t even have the ability to file D.V. claims in our state. Don’t be misled by michigan-autoappraisers.com. If you need help here in Michigan, call Auto Appraise Inc, a Mi. based corp at 810-694-2008.

auto appraiser Jason Phillips was pleasantly surprised when he was hired by the insured to represent his total loss case on a burned 1969 Camaro, opposite State Farm. “Our numbers didn’t come in that far off the number that State Farm came up with on their own”. State Farm normally requires a third party “umpire” be chosen in advance of the two enlisted appraisers coming up with their respective values. In this case, they were willing to wait, to see what Auto Appraises’ car appraisal value was. They were originally offering about $15,000 to settle the case. We came in at just over $18,500. Our figure was well supported, with multiple comparable cars listed for sale.
auto appraiser Jason Phillips points out that his last auto appraisal on a 2007 Cadillac revealed that previously repaired accident and structural collision damage were evident during the car inspection. Neither carfax or autocheck reported on the damage. The car’s history was clean. The driver’s side tire was “cambered” in at the top, due to a insufficient repair on the Left frame rail. No amount of suspension work is going to stop that tire from wearing out prematurely, as the root problem is much deeper. The client did their due diligence by ordering a report at the time of sale. “….it wouldn’t have mattered which service we chose, because when we found out, we ran a second report, with both companies, and it still never showed up… ” As you would imagine, neither company took responsibility for the missed information. Conclusion: the carfax guarantee is worthless in my opinion. If you or anybody you know has ever been financially compensated by either company for missed information, then please report it to us, as we would like to report it to you.
