Rick Kulcheski, the principal appraiser, has over 31 years of experience and training in Heavy Equipment. While starting out as a truck body repairman/mechanic in 1979, he moved on to appraising in 1988 with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. He has been in the Heavy Equipment Dept. since 1994 and has seen an opportunity in the private sector for insurance companies to take advantage of his experience.  

Rick has reviewed many subrogation demands and has saved thousands of dollars for Insurance Companies who have hired inexperienced or unqualified appraisers.

Fire Investigation and Manufactures defects are fields where experience is a must. Rick has the experience, training and knowledge needed to provide customers with an accurate and thorough appraisal. Countless times an insured may take advantage of a Insurance Company, presenting a claim for fire loss, while underling issues such as pre-existing drive train damage has been the issue.
