Need car checked in PA

I need to get a car (not Pontiac) checked out near Pittsburg PA, can anyone recommend an appraiser in that area?

I used United Appraisals. They did a horrible job. I was told the engine was good to go, but the transmission will need work. It was the opposite. When I received the engine it had a spun bearing. Also in the report it stated the parking brake worked as designed, but it was not even hooked up. The floor pans had been replaced but not welded they where riveted in place. There were several areas of damage that were not documented. I called and asked and they stated the owner could have switch the engine and disconnect the parking brake after inspection. They did not have a lift available so they stated they could not do a detailed inspection of the under carriage.

Thanks Joe.
As it turned out the seller didn't check out so the deal's off.
