FREE CARFAX REPORTS FROM ST. LUCIE APPRAISAL - AUTOMOBILE AND TRUCK APPRAISERS THROUGHOUT FLORIDA


STATED VALUE APPRAISALS IN FLORIDA 

MIAMI, Florida - Bet you didn't know that most automobile appraisers throughout Florida perform diminished value, insurance and stated value appraisals on automobiles and trucks without ever running a CARFAX report.

At The St. Lucie Appraisal Company of Fort Pierce, Florida, a CARFAX report for your vehicle is included at no charge when you hire us to write your appraisal.

An evaluation report or diminished value appraisal is virtually worthless unless the vehicle's history is known. How can an appraiser determine whether the vehicle has ever had any significant damage? One of the most embarrassing things is to place a specific value on a vehicle only to have the owner or dealer find out that it is worth much less due to previous repairs having been done. Even if it was fixed properly, it has reduced appeal to buyers and, of course, the dealerships and wholesalers who have to sell it.

Would you believe that used car dealers will offer up to 50% less for a vehicle that was repaired after an accident. Even minor repairs count heavily in the minds of consumers, especially when there are plenty of vehicles with no claims history to choose from. I have even encountered dealerships who will not take a previously repaired car in trade at any price.

Unfortunately, even though your once-or-twice repaired vehicle is worth much less than a comparable unit, don't expect the insurance companies to give you a break on their rates. It costs just as much to insure a repaired car as it does a pristine one. When you suffer a total loss, however, you can be assured that the insurer will be paying you an amount that reflects the fact that there was a previous history on the car.

So whether you are buying, selling, pursuing a claim or writing coverage on a vehicle, be smart and have it appraised by someone who offers CARFAX reports. In diminished value claims, of course, obtaining accurate information is the difference between fair compensation and settling for a much lower dollar amount.

Bet you also didn't know that our company handles Automobile Diminished Value claims throughout Florida.
