Understanding 24 Hour Claim Services
About the Appraisal Services
Diminished value (DV) or diminution of value is the difference between your pre-accident vehicle and your post-accident, properly repaired vehicle. Inherent diminished value is referred to in Diminished Value appraisals of a vehicle.
I formed and led a diminished value claim handling team for Farmers insurance covering 48 states over a 3 year period. During that time I reviewed, paid and denied thousands of DV claims. I write reasonable appraisals that stand scrutiny by insurance companies and the courts, at the best value in the industry. Order your Diminished Value Appraisal Here.
Total loss claims have no DV, as the insurance company pays the actual cash value of the vehicle. I can help with an affordable total loss appraisal.
A vehicle is a total loss when an insurance company chooses to pay the actual cash value (ACV) rather than repair it. The decision is typically based on the company's best practices and policies.
I managed teams of total loss adjusters and supervisors for over a decade inside Farmers Insurance. I know the internal processes and have reviewed, paid and denied thousands of Total Loss claims. Order your Total Loss Appraisal Here.
