FAMILY LAW VALUATIONS

Impartial valuations for family law purposes with adherence to the strict guidelines of the Family Law Rules & the Australian Valuers Institute (AVI). Our valuation certificate  includes a report to support the basis for the valuation.

IMPORTING CARS/MOTORBIKES TO AUSTRALIA

Because your car or motorcycle was not sold new in Australia we are able to value it at far less for customs duty than it's Australian equivalent & the resulting "Customs Value" can be as low as 50% of the actual Australian Market Value of the same car. Australian Customs Services require all privately imported vehicles to be valued by an Independent Approved Australian Customs Valuer. Also if you are contemplating importing your vehicle to Australia we can assist by giving you a free estimate in advance. In this case we would need a description of your vehicle/s. For any further advice please contact us.

We value vehicles at all arrival ports in Australia.

PRE-ACCIDENT VALUATIONS INSURANCE COMPANY DISPUTES

If your car was involved in an accident & your insurance company or the other parties insurance company declares that your vehicle is a "Write Off" or a "Repairable Write Off" & offers you an amount which is less than the amount you insured it for or the cost of replacing it, we can assist by inspecting & valuing your vehicle & giving you a replacement cost at the time of the accident i.e. the amount you should receive to replace your vehicle for one in a similar condition.

AGREED VALUE

Agreed value valuations are generally required when an insurer or a client requests an independent valuation of a vehicle that has more value than ascertained by reference to a price guide for whatever reason, modification, added equipment etc.

VALUATIONS FOR FINANCE & INSURANCE PURPOSES, Australia Wide.

Many Insurance & Finance Companies only use “Local Price Guides ”for valuations of their client’s vehicles which do not take into account the current values of many classic, collectors, & imported vehicles which have been selling at auctions world wide for record prices.
