Is it Time for a Diminished Value Report on Your Car? Alpharetta, GA

If you are considering selling or trading your car, a diminished value report may be in order. This is especially true if the vehicle has been involved in a collision. Even repaired vehicles diminish in value, despite what some mechanics may tell you.

An extensive report can outline the change in value of a car. This is usually the result of natural depression or a vehicle needing repairs after an accident. You may get a better price at point-of-sale with a diminished value inspection that reflects a fair assessment of worth.

At Wreck Check Atlanta, we employ experienced appraisers who specialize in producing diminished value reports. Quality of repairs, damage severity and general maintenance are all factors that are thoroughly assessed.

Who Should Get a Diminished Value Assessment?

Even if a car is repaired after an accident, it may never run or appear the same. You may recoup some of your losses by getting a diminished value assessment from a reputable appraiser. Insurance companies do not typically pay out for diminished value. You will only benefit from the cost of repairs to the vehicle when making a claim.

With a diminished value report in your arsenal, you have a weapon that can help you negotiate a fairer settlement. Valuing a car at point-of-sale is difficult for the average person. Aside from the fact that you could end up ripping off the buyer, there is a risk of losing money on the sale. A diminished value assessment will give you an idea of a fair price to negotiate with interested parties.

  • Amazing! He told me early on how much money he was going to be able to get me and he was spot on. I paid a small fee to get thousands more in my diminished value claim than the insurance company was offering. Further, RJ was very easy to get in contact with. He responded to my emails almost instantly. The whole process went by so quickly once he was involved. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • My insurance company offered me 37 bucks in diminished value. My case was slightly complex due to the insurance companies appraiser being stubborn and difficult. It had to be escalated to an unbiased umpire for a final binding decision. I wasn't expecting for it to go this far however it did. I ended up getting close to 3K back. RJ is extremely professional and he fights for you. The only issue to me is his preferred method of communication which is by email. Which i became accustomed to because he responds more prompt that way. He generated a 30 to 40 page report. He works extremely hard and for that I'm appreciative.

  • RJ is Awesome! He got me 10x what the insurance company offered on a 2 year old accident. Also, I traded the car in 7 months ago so I no longer had it. If I could share this experience with every person I see I would. I’ve already told several family and friends, it’s really just unbelievable to me! If you have any question what so ever, I promise his fee will be the best $275 you’ll ever spend!!
