TOTAL LOSS REPORT REFERRAL FROM LOCAL ATTORNEY

Good job deserves praises. I'm attesting to the fact that Jim whom I got the pleasure of knowing through a paralegal friend of ours, did us solid. I had an accident with my 2010 Yamaha R1 custom made by Nick Anglada, Yamaha motors and Palm Casino. Progressive totaled it and tried to low ball me with less than what a used 2010 Yamaha R1 motorcycle cost. I had only 5666 miles on the bike. With the help of Jim, he contacted Nick Anglada whom he didn't even know at first and was able to put together an appraisal and fought with progressive appraiser and got a wonderful deal for me. I was PCSing to Germany, Jim came and picked up the motorcycle to his garage at no cost to me and assisted in shipping the bike back to me in Germany after everything was settled as I bought the bike back from progressive. His dedication and commitment was unwavering. His communication with me was superb;  I have to say I'm glad I got to know Jim. I will recommend him to anyone of my friends. It's better to let a professional private appraiser like Jim, handle any claims with insurance especially if your vehicle or motorcycle has a value more than the normal vehicles especially custom made or antique type. Jim I will always be your friend and advocator for all your hard work, thanks. Walter

TOTAL LOSS REPORT REFERRAL FROM LOCAL ATTORNEY

I recently had a car accident when my car was totaled. My personal insurance completed their appraisal on the value of my car which I felt was low. Jim Amundsen was referred to me by Ruth Miller from Attorney Harold Carr's Law Firm. Jim was timely  in replying to my telephone call as well as completing a thorough appraisal which in the end was two thousand five hundred dollars more than the initial appraisal by my insurance. When I had to speak with several different agents of my insurance company Jim  was there to walk me through  all of the steps. He is very knowledgeable and helpful when going through a long process before settlement. I might add his wife Brook who keeps his books was also very helpful with making sure my emails were delivered correctly.  Jim is a professional that I would recommend to anyone who needs a thorough and complete appraisal.

Jim, You never really know what's on the other side of that shinny advertisement so thanks for verifying all the seller had to say. Well worth the $500 for the inspection and piece of mind.

I must admit I was skeptical when we talked about Diminished Value and my Honda Pilot, it wasn't my fault and to have the Insurance company write a check for $2200 and fix it was great. Michelle

Thanks for the appraisal and all the detail.

PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION AND APPRAISAL OUT OF STATE

 

I had been looking for a 1957 Chevy hardtop for quite awhile and the one I fell I love with of course happened to be 1400 miles away... with my work and schedule there was no way of getting out to look at it. I found Jim and he put my mind at ease right away when I talked to him on the phone. I could tell he was a car guy, like me, and he understand my concerns and what I was looking for in the car. I decided to have Jim go look at it for me and he took tons of pics of it, told me where any imperfections were and what he truly thought of the car and even made me a 28 page write up on it for my insurance! He drove it and looked it over for a half a day and then probably spent a half a day on the phone with me off and on when any questions would arise. I really felt he truly looked at it as if he were buying the 57. I went ahead and purchased the car and he even helped me with transportation and getting it all arranged! I feel I made a great purchase because of Jim and a new car guy friend as well. I would recommend Jim to anyone! He was instrumental in the purchase of my new Belair and I am happy to recommend him to anyone! Thanks Jim! Love crusin in my new car and can't wait to buy you a beer when you pass this way!!!

PRE- PURCHASE INSPECTION OVERSEAS

Absolutely delighted with the pre-purchase inspection service provided by Jim from start to finish. Email communications were answered very quickly and always very informative and explained everything. The actual report provided to me answered almost every question or laid to rest doubts I had on the vehicle and the phone call after again was informative and honest. Based on the report and conversations with Jim I have decided to go ahead and purchase. Have used several other inspection services but in my experience Jim was the best for his knowledge, presentation and professionalism throughout, Jim has been in constant contact even after the money has been paid to ask if there is anything he can do or assist with, cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are thinking of buying a classic then Getting in contact with Jim is the best thing you can do. Cheers Chris

 Happy New Years Jim!
  I would like to thank you again from all of your help as well as listening to me vent several times!!
  After having my truck totalled by another party I found myself fighting with my insurance company over the value of my vehicle. Having my truck since it was new and continually upgrading and customizing it I knew I was going to lose, insurance companies are notorious for producing the lowest possible value of the totalled vehicle.
  My insurance company hired an outside agency to do the Total Loss Report on my truck and returned the value at an insultingly low level. After much stress and many phone calls I was in contact with Jim and Automotive Consulting Group. 
  Jim went above and beyond in every way to provide me with the highest level of customer service, even meeting me at my house on Thanksgiving day. He always took my calls or returned them promptly. When it came to the valuation of my truck he prepared a thorough Total Loss Report that was representative of the true value of my vehicle. After I provided the loss report to my insurance company Jim was there every step of the way to negotiate the value with their appraisal depertment. 
  The entire process became stress free and seamless after I contacted Jim at Automotive Consulting Group. If your looking for high level customer service and quality representation then look no further.
  I could not have been happier with my experience, thank you Jim and Automotive Consulting Group!

TOTAL LOSS REPORT REFERRAL FROM LOCAL ATTORNEY

My 1993 Chrysler LeBaron Convertible GTC was involved in an accident.  Because the vehicle was 25 years old the insurance company wanted to make it a ‘total loss’.  The car had a little over 77,000 miles and looked brand new and was not really hurt that badly.  I did not know which way to turn.  A friend suggested to call Jim at Automotive Consulting Group.  Am I glad for that.  Jim worked hard for us and established a true and fair value for my car instead of the total loss value offered by the insurance company.   The result of his efforts was an insurance settlement that allows me to get my vehicle repaired like new.  Thanks Jim for your extra efforts that made this possible.

You may help me put following writing on your website, thank you again for your excellent work.


I am a “shy boy”, barely make comments online and response any after service survey. But I feel should say something this time, my “brand new” Lexus RX 350 (bought in several months and only has two thousand miles on it) had a rear hit collision on freeway. It was sent to body shop specialized for Lexus, first they promised to fix it in several weeks, but later they found it wasn’t worth to repair and claim as total loss. Since they have spent lots of time on evaluation and bought almost up to 8k parts, the negotiation with Allstate was not easy from the beginning. My attorney suggested me to ask for a personal appraiser, I took their advice and call Jim Amundsen. I am so glad I made this decision. I can’t imagine whole negotiation with insurance without him. He is a very diligent and hard-working person. After two months barging with Allstate, we amazingly got compensation more than we expected. A happy ending for an unfortunate event.

PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION OUT OF STATE

 Jim, Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the great job on my pre-purchase inspection of the 1957 Ford Skyliner. My first car was a '57 Skyliner and I had been looking for a good one for years. When I saw this one online in Tacoma I knew I needed a professional on site inspection since I live in Alaska. These 50's cars are prone to significant rust and other maladies that are impossible to detect through photos. That's when I called you. Your thorough inspection and quick turn around made my decision easy. You kept me constantly updated by phone through the entire process. I can't thank you enough for your professional service. If I ever need another inspection or appraisal, you will be the one I call. 

Thanks again! Mike Valentine
