CHOOSING THE RIGHT TRUCK AND HEAVY EQUIPMENT APPRAISER FOR FINANCING OR INSURANCE


CHOOSING THE RIGHT TRUCK AND HEAVY EQUIPMENT APPRAISER FOR FINANCING OR INSURANCE

FORT PIERCE, Florida - Many companies providing financing or insurance for trucks and heavy equipment have strict requirements regarding the appraisal of vehicles. A bank or credit union lending money toward the purchase of a dump truck or over the road tractor will ask for an inspection by a licensed appraiser before committing funds toward the purchase. Likewise, insurance underwriters look for documentation before providing coverage. Bankruptcies and loan defaults among owner-operators of trucks and construction equipment make lenders and insurers extremely selective about who they do business with. Is The St. Lucie Appraisal Company a company that banks and insurers choose to provide valuation services?
Selecting a company to perform a truck appraisal is typically the job of the prospective buyer or policyholder. As absurd as it sounds, the typical commercial lender or insurance broker is clueless when it comes to finding a licensed independent appraiser. Often the vehicle owner is asked to locate an independent appraiser because banking and insurance managers don't possess  Rolodexes any more. When lenders or brokers do hire us, it is often as a result of a Google search. What the vehicle owner should know, however, is that once the appraisal is given to the bank or insurer, representatives from those institutions will then perform their due diligence and query the appraiser as to how he obtained his valuation figures.
After making certain that the independent appraiser is properly licensed, investigate for yourself their expertise and any reviews from past clients. When their appraisal is placed under the microscope of the insurer or lender, if their answers don't meet the bank's or insurance company's criteria, you have wasted your money on a worthless document.
