Mecum Harrisburg Auction Inspection
Expert Auto Appraisals will be at the Mecum Harrisburg, July 2022 performing our inspection and and appraisal services. We can statically inspect all aspects of the vehicle. Always provided is a full suite of photos of the entire vehicle. We photograph finish flaws, brightwork, trim, gauges, interior, and all other areas of the vehicle. When applicable, paint meter measurements are also photographed. When applicable and possible, driveline photos for stampings, castings, VIN, trim tags, undercarriage, and suspension. On average, over 150 detailed photographs are provided for review.
Additionally, we can have the auction staff start the vehicle to test basic operations such as running, lighting, gauges, etc. Because of auction rules, test drives are not permitted. Also, If available, I can interview the seller to get additional history and information. In addition, the auction office may have documentation, awards, judging sheets, restoration receipts, etc. If available, we will include in inspection.
I regularly inspect American Muscle, Classics, Porsche, Ferrari, Corvette, Shelby, GM Muscle, Mopar, Ford, Jaguar, and Motorcycles. I have inspected everything from Abarth to Zagato.

Often, a car does not sell on the auction block due to the sellers reserve not being met. Even though a car did not sell on the auction block, it is still for sale and a deal can be made. Mecum has “The Bid Goes On” desk staffed by a dedicated team that specifically deals with the unsold cars, providing a great service at the auction. This presents an opportunity to negotiate on a car that has already crossed the block and has not sold. I can negotiate all aspects of the deal with Mecum’s dedicated staff. As your authorized bidder, we can present an offer and negotiate the purchase of a car, often at favorable terms.
