Insurance Appraisals

High quality photographs of your classic or high dollar value car, truck, or motorcycle maybe required by insurance companies to document the condition of your vehicle, any modifications such as sound systems, or a custom paint job.

Documentation For Insurance

In the event of an accident, having high quality photographs will show the quality and condition of the vehicle prior to the accident. This will help you get the maximum dollar value from your insurance. In my case, I did a photo shoot with my truck the same day that I hit a moose and wrote off the truck. In addition to multiple high quality “before” photographs, I also had receipts for all the additions and modifications done to the truck.

Visual Record For Modifications Done To Your Car, Truck, Motorcycle

If you do any modifications or repairs to your vehicle or a project car, taking high quality photographs before, during, and after will you track the progress. These photographs can also serve as a reference for any future tasks, or to show prospective buyers of all the TLC that you put into the car!

The photos below are my 2021 C8 Corvette Stingray Z51. The complete rear end/bumper had to be removed to facilitate the installation of a high wing spoiler. The image on the right shows the existing Z51 spoiler that will be replaced.
