Since its inception in 1987, The Vehicle Experts has always been an independent company/contractor, never aligned or affiliated in any way with any insurance company, state Department of Insurance, group, manufacturer or dealer franchise. We have a 31-year record of working only with individuals, businesses and/or their attorneys regarding Total Loss and Diminished Value claims, as a Court Certified Appraisal Expert and as a Court Certified Expert Witness in vehicle insurance related court and arbitration proceedings (e.g., fraud, class action, bad faith, breach of contract), as a vehicle Appraiser/Arbitrator per a policy of insurance’s “right to appraisal/arbitration" provision, and as a retail-to-the-public new and used car AutoBroker (cash, lease, finance & trade-ins). We were first licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles in 1980. Please call us at (800) 540-AUTO to discuss our services, fees, qualifications and references. We'll make it simple and we'll do all the work.
