Don't Accept The Insurance Company's First Offer After A Wreck!

Image

Almost all auto insurance policies have something called an Appraisal Clause. This allows you to dispute the amount the insurance company says your car is worth by bringing in an unbiased appraiser.  Insurance companies don't always value your vehicle at its pre-accident condition, which could be a difference of thousands of dollars. Having an independent appraiser who doesn't work for the insurance company can help you maximize your claim.

If you think that your wrecked or totaled car is worth more than the insurance company says it is, it is your right to get a second opinion!  Before accepting their offer, find an Auto Appraiser in your area and tell them you need an appraisal following a car accident. If your car has been totaled, you need a 'Prior-to-total loss Fair Market Value Appraisal.'

If your vehicle isn't totaled and is able to be repaired, you want to get a 'Diminished Value' appraisal. The auto appraiser will know and explain the difference to you.

Your policy’s ‘Appraisal Clause’ and ‘Diminished Value’ are two terms the auto insurance industry doesn’t want you to know about.  Don’t leave money on the table, make sure you get a check for the full amount that your vehicle is worth.

We are the Auto Appraisal Network of South Florida.  If you are in the South East Florida area, contact us. We will give you a fair assessment of your vehicle and work directly with the insurance company so that they pay you a fair amount  for your wrecked or totaled car or truck.
