List of Services and Fees

Joseph L. Troise Appraisal Services
are offered to both the general public and the insurance industry. We are based in northern & mid-California & Tahoe-Reno area.

Standard Appraisal 

This is a complete on-site inspection and evaluation of your classic or contemporary car, or book/automobilia/tool collection. The appraiser normally covers only the northern California area. $175 and up, depending on car and location (refer to Frequently Asked Questions for more information on rates) 

Market Analysis 

Done by mail, fax or e-mail, as you prefer, this is a quick and economical way for you to have an accurate estimate of your carís current retail and/or wholesale market value, so that you might buy, sell, insure, donate or settle disputes and estate matters with some confidence in your information. These detailed analyses will cite standard references and report on current market conditions, but are NOT a substitute for a certified appraisal.  $75.00, most cars.

Arbitration and Expert Witness Testimony 

Should you need an advocate in an arbitration hearing, or Expert Witness testimony, the appraiser is very experienced in these areas, and offers a free consultation to determine if he can be of service to you. Rates for Expert Witness are on a per-day basis, and will vary with location. 

Pre-Sale Inspection 

This is a complete on-site inspection, test drive and photographic record of the classic or collectible car you are thinking of buying, but haven't time to come and see for yourself. This type of appraisal serves as your eyes and ears, and the appraiser serves as your advocate. $275 and up, depending on car and location. Information on additional mechanical inspection and transport can be provided as well.

Free Phone or E-Mail Consultation 

The appraiser would be pleased to offer advice to anyone who needs clarification of their appraisal needs. No values, however, will be given out without a prior inspection or on-line evaluation of your vehicle, and without a fee being received by the appraiser.
