Vintage car assessments include several individual services: Our employees draft a vehicle appraisal, which documents any potential, previous damages, the history of the car model, and any upgrades that were made. They issue grades on the condition of individual vehicle components. They also assess the vehicle's condition and determine the market value.
Vintage Car Assessment with Road Safety Approval
If the vehicle still has valid road safety approval, our employees document how roadworthy the car is in a main inspection. If all other requirements, such as age and condition, are met, the vintage car appraisal is issued.
Vintage Car Assessment without Road Safety Approval
If the vehicle no longer has valid road safety approval, our experts examine whether the vehicle generally meets the road traffic regulation requirements. In this case, the requirements apply that were valid when the vehicle was first registered. This data is determined in a vintage car database. We also check whether the vehicle has all the necessary upgrades. As part of this assessment, we also carry out a main inspection. Once all the criteria are fulfilled, our employee creates the report.
