INSURANCE ADJUSTERS AND DIMINISHED VALUE - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

INSURANCE ADJUSTERS AND DIMINISHED VALUE - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

 FORT PIERCE, Florida - One of the more interesting developments arising from our involvement in handling automobile diminished value appraisals has been the fact that insurance adjusters - our adversaries for all intents and purposes - recommend The St. Lucie Appraisal Company to their families and friends. During the course of their work, adjusters assigned the task of settling diminished value claims for cars and trucks see every type of report generated by independent appraisers in all 50 states. There is a measure of satisfaction knowing that the people trying to devalue our expertise professionally do a complete reversal by recommending our services to those most important to them personally. The quality of our reports speaks volumes and the methodology we use - obtaining dealer quotes - is recognized as the most legitimate way to measure true diminished value in the real world.

There are many independent appraisers that advertise their services in Google, Bing, Yahoo and elsewhere on the internet. You will find everything from cut-rate diminished value reports costing as little as $39.00 to offers that tout "free" diminished value reports that are nothing more than come-ons for higher priced services. While most consumers are wise enough to see through these silly scams, others, especially foreign-born individuals, are easy targets.

"You get what you pay for" is a time-honored saying that applies to most things in life and diminished value appraisals are no different. Insurance adjusters are trained to spot bargain shoppers. They know that a claimant who presents them with a cheap-o appraisal or, even more so, a free quote from an auto dealer, is not the type of person who will put up much of a fight. Not only will the adjuster make an initial low-ball offer, they will refuse to budge, knowing that the claimant won't be likely to hire an attorney to represent their interests. The likelihood of these penny-wise, pound-foolish claimants taking whatever settlement is offered is greater than the prospect of their spending additional time and money defending their positions. This is not to say that independent appraisers charging four or five hundred dollars for their reports will guarantee success. The appraiser's methodology must also be legitimate for the report to be deemed indefensible by the insurance company.
