Diminished Value

When your vehicle suffers damage, value is lost that cannot be regained, even with the best of repair work.  We can determine the difference between Pre-loss Fair Market Value and what that value is after your accident.

Appraisal Services

We offer a wide range of Appraisal services including Stated Amount Appraisals for insurance coverage, Vehicle Appraisals to determine Fair Market Retail Value, Estate Appraisals, Umpire and Consultant to settle court disputes, and Determination of Authenticity for vehicle condition and history.

Misrepresentation Cases

Finding out that you have overpaid on something is frustrating, especially if that something is a car from a seller you thought that you could trust.

Vehicle Location

Serious buyers who want peace of mind about their vehicle purchase use Bauer Car Connection.  We will locate the closest match possible to your specifications for the desired vehicle.  When requested, an independent buyer’s check can be arranged to assure that you are getting the vehicle as represented.
