AUTO DIMINISHED VALUE CLAIMS IN FLORIDA - NOT JUST FOR BENTLEY, MERCEDES-BENZ AND PORSCHE OWNERS

The Bentley Azure in Florida 

MIAMI, Florida - In Florida, if an automobile was repaired as a result of an accident that was the fault of a third-party, consumers may make a claim for Diminished Value. In short, diminished value means that your car, because it now has a bad CARFAX, is worth less. How much less depends on the type of car, how badly damaged, etc. Consumers of high-end cars such as Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche tend to be more discriminating and usually won't buy a vehicle that was repaired. Diminished Value can result in 50% of the vehicle's value lost. A licensed appraiser can provide a report detailing exactly how much less your vehicle is worth. While a diminished value appraisal is a basic requirement, do you also need an attorney? Keeping in mind the fact that insurance companies in Florida have been very hush-hush regarding a consumer's rights to make auto diminished value claims, expect them not to jump for joy when they receive yours. Simply put, if you are dealing with an insuror who handles claims in a fair manner you won't need to be represented by a lawyer.

Car been repaired after a collision that was the fault of the other driver?  Your automobile has suffered diminished value. In Florida, you can get it back.

BUYING & SELLING A CLASSIC AND CUSTOM CAR, HEAVY TRUCK OR CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT IN FLORIDA? BE SURE TO HAVE IT APPRAISED OR INSPECTED.

CUSTOM CAR APPRAISALS IN FLORIDA 

FORT PIERCE, Florida - Tough economic times right now in South Florida, classic and custom cars are selling for rock bottom prices. Even trucks and construction equipment sales are flat revealing a buyers’ market. We have been swamped with requests for condition reports from out-of-state and international buyers. It’s not only antique cars but many race car collectors and enthusiasts have been availing themselves of our inspection service.

ST LUCIE APPRAISAL is not only Florida’s premier valuation service, our expertise in spotting flaws and other examples of poor workmanship generates many requests for auto, truck and heavy equipment condition reports.

Whether we’re inspecting an inventory of construction cranes or a rare prototype race car, attention to detail is our primary objective. It’s an incomparably dismal feeling to see your new hundred-thousand dollar investment for the first time as it rolls off the car carrier, only to realize you’ve been had. It almost never makes sense not to spend a few hundred dollars for a vehicle condition report. Buying something sight unseen is always risky. Hiring an appraiser is an inexpensive way to limit your liability.
