We are expert used vehicle, watercraft & property inspectors & appraisers. 43 years of experience. Expert witness testimony for plaintiff or defendant, federal or state courts nationwide.
Since 1997 American Technical Inspections developed into P.J.G. Consulting & Appraisal, as the demand for pre-purchase appraisals increased.
Both inspection/appraisal companies are the result of Phillip J. Grismer's belief that the automotive sales and
service world are operated by basically decent, honest people who work hard to earn a living in a very competitive world. His belief is also that crooked and or dishonest dealers and poor quality manufacturers are a minority and should be caught and stopped from ripping people off as soon as possible.
Even good, honest dealers occasionally sell a defective or sub-standard vehicle. Even the greatest manufacturers will occasionally make a defective product. Regardless of whether you are manufacturing or retail selling, sometimes you have a clunker. Beware of consumer fraud.

Whatever personal property you need to have evaluated, for whatever purpose, call us. We can help.
