Recently Sold Verts as Proof of Value

Looking to find some recently sold verts as evidence of my car's value as proof for insurance purpose.

I know they will try to low ball me.

How do I find records of sales that the insurance company will accept.

Currently looking for my receipts with varying degrees of success.

Thank you xGuido. Also finding that eBay and Bring a Trailer show more fair assessments of our car values today.

That's relatively minor damage. I would fight to keep a clean title.

It also may be a good idea in the future to have your can insured by a specialty company with an "agreed upon value" policy. The only issue with these is they are often designed for show cars or cars that are not driven on a regular basis and have mileage restriction. My E24 M6 is insured in this way. The company lets you set the value yourself, within reason I am sure, and in my case I just provided pictures to detail the condition of the car.

The other good idea is to have the car independently appraised so if there is a catastrophic loss you have an independent appraisal assigning a more accurate value to your car. Book value of older cars does not necessarily reflect a true value. The book value on my M6 is no where near what these cars are currently selling for/valued at just because of their rarity and current demand.

Insurance companies are there to make money and will want to pay you the very minimum. I learned this the hard way with a garage fire. In my case I hired an independent insurance guy and instead of $65,000 the insurance company originally wanted me to settle for I ended up with $95,000

not to shit on your parade, but when i wrecked mine the insurance said that the comparison cars had to be within a mileage radius of <50 miles. then they prceeded to show me cars in california that were cheap when i live in florida. GL man, insurance people are assholes.
