Providence is the capital and most populous city of the state of Rhode Island and was one of the first cities established in the United States. Located in Providence County, it is the third largest city in the New England region. The city proper population of 178,042 anchors the 37th largest metropolitan population in the country, with an estimated MSA population of 1,600,856, exceeding that of Rhode Island by about 60% due to its reaching into southern Massachusetts. This MSA in turn is part of the larger Greater Boston commuting area, which contains 7.6 million people. Situated at the mouth of the Providence River, at the head of Narragansett Bay, the city's small footprint is crisscrossed by seemingly erratic streets and contains a rapidly changing demographic.
Road System: I-95 runs from north to south through Providence while I-195 connects the city to eastern Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts, including New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Cape Cod. I-295 encircles Providence while RI 146 provides a direct connection with Worcester, Massachusetts. The city has commissioned and begun a long-term project, the Iway, to move I-195 not only for safety reasons, but also to free up land and to reunify the Jewelry District with Downcity Providence, which had been split from one another by the highway. The project is estimated to cost $446 million and be completed in 2012.
"While driving to work one day, a flat bed truck side swiped me. The accident caused almost $7,500 in repairs to my Hyundai Sonata. After the repairs were done, I asked my insurance company about diminished value. They said you will need to hire a certified auto appraiser to perform the appraisal. So I started calling around and talked to a few appraisal companies before I got Pinnacle on the line. After speaking with them I could tell they knew a lot more about diminished value and the procedures of filing the claim; than the other companies I called. Not only was the process smooth but they were able to get me what I deserved." - Jonathan T. - Providence, RI
"After restoring my 1965 Mercedes, I needed to increase the coverage on my classic car insurance policy. The insurance company advised me to hire a certified classic car appraiser, someone that is experienced with my type of vehicle. I hired Pinnacle Auto Appraisers to inspect and appraise my car. Not only is their reports very thorough but very current as well. They show what the vehicle is currently selling for, current condition rating of the vehicle and book value. Of course there is a lot more included with the report, but this was what I was most interested in. Pinnacle knows the correct way of doing a classic car appraisal and I recommend anyone to hire this company for your classic car appraisal needs." Paul M. - Providence, RI
