Q - Will a desktop appraisal be as accurate as a certified appraisal?
A - No, absolutely not. The fee that we quote you on a particular service is the total fee we charge. Additional surcharges or hidden fees are never charged to our clients.
Q - I see that your general offices are located in Florida. How can you provide me with a certified appraisal on my aircraft located in Dallas Texas?
A - The appraised value presented within our comprehensive desktop appraisals is designed to be just as accurate as a certified appraisal - as long as the information provided to us about the aircraft on our questionaire form is accurate.

Q - How do I order an appraisal or prebuy inspection on an aircraft?
A - No. As long as you designate a responsible third party to allow our appraiser unencumbered access to your aircraft and maintenance log records, it won't be necessary for you to be present during the inspection.
A - The values provided within Aircraft Blue Book and Vref price guide publications are fine for simply estimating the general value of an aircraft. However unlike an appraisal, price guide publications cannot determine the significant effect on value due to the actual condition of the airframe, engine, paint, interior and avionics. In addition, price guides do not take into account
the accuracy of maintenance records and the extent of damage history that an aircraft may have.
A - Its easy. Once you've decided the level of appraisal or prebuy inspection that is most suitable to your needs, we'll send our written proposal/service agreement to you for your approval. Our proposal/service agreement will provide all the details of the service to be provided, including a firm quote on our total fee. Upon your approval, we will then immediately organize the appraisal or prebuy inspection service you require.
