Our service radius is approximately 90 miles from Pittsburgh in all directions covering Western PA, Eastern OH and Northern WV. There are many parts to our inspection and appraisal analysis; preparation, thorough evaluation, quality photographs, research, document report, and verbal report. The sum of all is what gives you a true understanding of the vehicle without misinterpretation, and that is what makes our mobile auto inspection and appraisal service top-notch.
Inspections check the functionality and condition of the engine, systems, accessories, fluids, belts, tires and more. The interior is carefully looked at top to bottom, everything is checked from dash lights to seat operation. We also canvas the details of hardware, rubber seals, trim, chrome and other cosmetics. A close eye examines the body and paint including a thorough undercarriage inspection. Last but not least, we check known problem areas for that specific make and model plus any small requests you might have.
Results are a detailed written report, up to 100 quality photos of the automobile inside and out including undercarriage and close-ups, along with a verbal report answering all questions you have. Customers receive the written report and photos via email on the same day the inspection is performed, and after the results are reviewed by the customer we discuss the findings over the phone at the earliest convenience.

Appraisals are a separate service from the pre-purchase inspection. While both procedures are similar in the evaluation phase, because in order to accurately determine the approximate value of a vehicle the overall condition must be thoroughly evaluated first, there are more hours involved with an appraisal due to additional research and the layout of the final product is different because it serves a different purpose.
The appraisal is typically 9 pages long for one vehicle and professionally prepared. Pittsburgh Vehicle PPI is certified by and in good standing with Pennsylvania Antique Auto Appraisals (PA3) and follows the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as declared by the Appraisal Standards Board of The Appraisal Foundation, which is accepted by institutions for insurance, estates, tax purposes, etc.
