We are a small business located in Stark County Ohio not far from the city of Canton Ohio and the Pro-Football Hall of Fame. I specialize in Personal Property Appraisals especially American Classic Muscle Cars, collectible automobiles, drive train components and parts inventories.

I have spent the majority of my life working around muscle cars and musical instruments.  I have been studying and collecting both since high school.

I started this company as a result of finding myself in need of an appraiser one day in the not too distant past. When that need arose I became immediately and painfully aware of just how hard it was to find a certified appraiser knowledgeable about Collector Cars and Collector Car Parts in my home state of Ohio. I found appraisers , both certified and not certified.Most of the certified appraisers in my area had little or no knowledge of collectable automobiles.

The un-certified appraisers were immediately ruled out because without certification their appraisal is viewed by a court of law as nothing more than opinion. My next door neighbor could have offered his opinion for free. What was neccesary for the court was a proffesional personal property report. Most of the certified appraisers I found were then ruled out because they had no knowledge of the subject. I retained an appraiser from out of state who was a member of CAGA. I was impressed with his professionalism and the amount of time and attention to detail put forth in preparing his report.  To make a long story short I contacted CAGA and  enrolled in their program. I became a  CAGA certified appraiser.

Since that time a lot of water has flowed under the bridge my friends. I have been called several times as a professional witness or to defend my appraisals. I have met many appraisers in the course of my daily business, or personally seen copies of their work. I have seen appraisal reports presented to a Court of Law  written on a single sheet of notebook paper by a new car dealer. It's like i have said before, All Appraisers Are Not Equal
and neither are All Appraisals. Make sure you get your monies worth.

My name is Bruce A. Peoples I have been involved in the automotive industry since I was old enough to push a broom in my Dad's shop, where I earned my nick name "Big Block Bruce"

As a certified appraiser I provide written appraisals for insurance, tax, estate, marital division, charitable contributions, liquidations, bankruptcy, sale estimates or other informational purposes. I base my  rates  on time spent and the scope of the appraisal, not on a percentage of the property's value. When you call my number you talk to me. Not some guy behind a desk who farms out the job to an appraiser he's never even met. I do all my own appraisals and answer the phone too. Need some more reasons to call me?
