Classic Vehicle Specialists

Classic Vehicle Collectors cherish their vehicles. So much so, many have invested thousands of dollars into making their classic the apple of their eye. SCS understands the relation between classics and their owners because our audit team owns and restores these vehicles as well. Combined, our auditors have over 100 year’s experience with classic vehicles. From American Classics to European Classics and beyond, our team knows what it takes to bring a vehicle back to pre-loss condition.

National Heavy Equipment Experts

Many appraisal services offer Heavy Equipment coverage throughout the country. Most of the services are simply auto-based appraisal companies with little experience with heavy equipment units. Specialized Claims Synergy is truly a specialty lines service that places emphasis and resources on heavy equipment and specialty vehicles. Our audit team boasts over 100 combined years of experience in heavy equipment damage appraisals. Many on our team have hands-on repair experience with heavy equipment.
