Hurricane Dorian - vehicle flood damage

 

If you know somebody whose vehicle was flooded or damaged during Hurricane Dorian and declared a Total Loss, the Appraisal Clause in our policies gives us the right to get an independent appraisal of the prior-to-loss fair market value of our vehicle. This may result is a higher settlement from your insurance company. Ask your insurance company to invoke your right to the Appraisal Clause!

Q: Can I keep my car if the insurance company totals it? A: Yes. After it's been declared a total loss, you have the option to keep the car. The insurance company will subtract the salvage value from the car's market value. The salvage value is the amount a salvage yard will pay for the damaged car. If you keep the car, it will have a salvage title. If it is successfully repaired or rebuilt, you can apply to transfer the salvage title to a rebuilt title. Caution! A vehicle with a rebuilt title can be difficult and/or expensive to insure. Do your homework!
