Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to collect Diminished Value from the Insurance Company?
Absolutely! If the accident was not your fault, it is owed to you from the Insurance Company of the at fault party or your own Insurance Company under your uninsured motorist coverage.

Will I be able to collect at least what I paid for your service?
Yes. We will evaluate your claim prior to beginning the appraisal and if we see that you will not receive at least triple our fee we will not do the appraisal.

Can the Insurance Company calculate this for me?
They will sometimes try but will most likely have you hire an expert like us to determine the real diminished value. Some Insurance Companies will just put a percentage on it and make you an offer. This will not be an accurate assessment of your diminished value and could cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. We have been doing diminished value assessments for years with a wide range of experience in many different areas of automobile valuations.

How long will it take to get my report?
After we complete our inspection of the vehicle, your report will be delivered to you personally or via email within 3 to 4 business days.
