North of Oregon and just South of Canada one of America's treasured cities stands watch over the mighty pacific ocean. The last American city until Alaska, Seattle Washington boasts a wonderful hodgepodge of music, innovation, and yes: cars! Over the years Pinnacle Auto Appraisers has enjoyed the wonderful privilege of appraising vehicles as they are brought on shore from far off lands.
With such a wonderful landscape brings Mother Nature's full fury along with her beauty. We have seen hail, wind, rain, snow...you name it...it happens in Washington State. Many of our corporate fleets that we service are in the Seattle Washington area. We have a duty to these clients to make sure their new equipment is up-to-par for the course as the mountains offer little forgiveness.
"In the last ten years we have been called on several occasions for emergency appraisals after large storms. I was not prepared for the devastation we witnessed. Entire sides of mountain forest blown over, right on an entire trucking fleet. Drivers running for their lives as freak storms blow in and mighty winds whip massive trucks around like toys, stacking great trees like lincoln logs across roads...and in some cases...across the drivers. It was one of the toughest times I ever had being an appraiser. Not only did I see entire companies devastated, but the loss of life was equally as saddening.
Our trip to Seattle was an eye-opening experience for the younger appraisers on our team. We entered as jovial men ready to assess and appraise, we left somber and contemplative. It takes seeing hundreds of millions of dollars gone, spent, destroyed, laying waste in front of you to really sink in that an area, or an industry is dead. I had the opportunity to talk with one logger who explained that this entire mountain area would have to be culled early...and replanted...and the trucks, thank God they were insured."
Our goal at Pinnacle Auto Appraisers is to take into account the history of the vehicle, motorcycle, truck or fleet, you name it! We look for things you might not take into account. When looking back on the experience of our appraisers we know that life comes first and that your investment is ours to properly value...
We bring our expertise and experience to the table for large corporations as well as the little guy. Whether you are a company owner truying to claim damaged or dimished value, a father buying a used car for his daughter, or a musician buying his next porsche: We can help value what you own.
If you live in Seattle, Washington or in the surrounding areas we offer certified auto appraisals on classic cars, fleet vehicles, lease turn-in, total loss, diminished value, stated value, pre-purchase inspections, charitable donations, motorcycles, recreational vehicles and more!
