FINANCING OR INSURING CUSTOM TRUCKS, TRACTORS AND TRAILERS? APPRAISING HEAVY EQUIPMENT THROUGHOUT FLORIDA.

Florida Appraisers - Custom Tractors and Trailers 

ORLANDO, Florida - Customizing your semi truck adds value to it. When it comes time to finance or insure your rig, coming up with an accurate replacement cost is essential. Custom paint, chrome, exhaust and other accessories are popular upgrades but many owner-operators are taking it many steps further by taking proactive steps to increase efficiency, maximize payload and enhance performance. Full frame-off rebuilds using hi-tensile frame rails are being done to Peterbilt, Kenworth, Mack, Freightliner and International trucks. Body upgrades like suicide doors, window kits and chopped cabs cost money so they must be listed in your appraisal report. Inside the truck, custom LED dashboards and refurbished sleepers now offer real home-away-from-home comfort. Expensive electronics are becoming almost standard items in all heavy trucks.  Custom trailers are rarer but owners are increasingly becoming interested in aerodynamics, improving braking distance, flooring upgrades and new hydraulics. A valuation appraisal from a Florida state-licensed appraiser presents your bank, credit-union or insurance company with the comprehensive picture you need to guarantee a positive outcome whether obtaining a loan or a replacement cost insurance policy.
