By inspecting Collision repairs, I am able to assure the safety of your family. In an inspection I verify that the repair shop and Insurance Company used proper parts and Structurally approved process to confirm your vehicle meets manufactures specifications, as well as current highway safety laws.

My job is to review your claim, the repairs, and to perform the actual vehicle inspections.

My Family owns two body shops which I have worked which I have done everything from sweeping the floors, checking in parts, repairing cars, and managing the shop.  I have been in the industry since I was 13 years old working on and off (but it was full time until I graduated college).  I graduated college with a Bachelors in Business Administration from Auburn University.  I am a certified repair professional with over ten consecutive years of experience in the collision and auto repair industry. Based on my experience, sometimes I find that the Insurance Company may owe you additional money as a result of poor workmanship by the shop that they recommended.  In some cases the shops are Direct Repair facilities (DRP) for the insurance company.  When a shop signs that agreement they are acting as the inspector for the insurance company.  The shop estimators are rated based on severity of the claims they process for that insurance company.  Severity is the amount of damage per claim.  If the severity is too high the shop will be removed from the DRP program.

My goal at Wreck Check is to make sure that vehicles are being repaired under safety guidelines and that your vehicle is returned to you at pre-accident condition in regards to function, safety and appearance.
The law firms that hire me to perform professional services can compensate me.  In addition to making sure auto repair facilities are doing their jobs correctly; we are also making sure that the Insurance Companies are not taking advantage of their customers.

Beware of Appraisers Posing as Consumer Advocates

Before hiring an appraiser, Ask them how many diminished value claims are referred to them by Insurance Companies. The way they answer this question will tell you about their intentions.

Insurance companies like to minimize the amount they pay out on claims. Any Appraiser stating they can get you a diminished value appraisal the insurance company will accept likely works for the insurance company, and this represents a conflict of interest for the vehicle owner.
