History

Established in 2004, Bullseye Automotive Appraisal was founded by Don Mills when he realized his extensive knowledge of cars restoration and market values would be best applied to automotive appraisal. Don started his automotive career by restoring his father's originally new purchased 1965 Oldsmobile 442. He still owns and enjoys that car. His first automotive job was at a mechanical automotive repair facility. He then went on to manage the core rebuilding department and restoration facility of a major British Automotive Parts Distributor.

Don also worked in several European Automotive body shops before starting his own shop "Arc and Anvil Auto Restorations". Where he has completed body on and body off restorations on a wide spectrum of automobiles. In 2003 Don tested for and earned a North Carolina Department of Insurance independent adjuster's license. He then contacted Anthony Monopoli, founder of the International Automotive Appraisers Association, (IAAA) where he was mentored and become a Certified Appraiser Member since 2004.

Each year Don takes continuing education insurance courses to maintain his adjuster's license, and continuing education courses with IAAA to maintain his Appraisal Certification. He also takes a yearly review of the Uniform Standards of Automotive Appraisal Procedures (USAAP), these were established by the IAAA which has set automotive appraiser industry standards worldwide. Don has appraised vehicles in North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia.
