Need a Second Opinion on Car Damage? Alpharetta, GA

What are the reasons you may need a second opinion on car damage? There are quite a few reasons when repairing a vehicle can become a nightmare. It is important to understand how these issues impact your vehicle’s value. There is also a safety concern associated with mechanical issues that persist or worsen after a car accident.

When you trust another person or company to repair your vehicle, there is more at stake than you may realize. The value of your car will always drop when involved in an accident. However, you also need to consider drivability and roadworthiness.

Diminished value begins from the moment a vehicle leaves the showroom or dealership lot. The process is accelerated when that vehicle suffers damage in a crash. Quality of repairs can dictate how much value is lost, so exercise caution when dealing with insurance companies and auto mechanics.

Dishonest Insurance Companies

A dishonest insurance company may push to devalue your vehicle after repairs. By inflating the diminished value of a car, these unscrupulous companies may seek to reduce your payout. Unless you are a qualified mechanic, it is hard to argue with a report produced by a professional insurance company.

Poor Repair Processes

The scope of practices that can result in poor repair processes is expansive. An inexperienced or bad mechanic can destroy your vehicle. There is also the issue of using parts that are incompatible or of a lower quality in repairs. Insurance companies will often encourage or turn a blind eye to these practices.

Secondhand Vehicle Purchases

When you purchase a secondhand vehicle, there is no guarantee of quality. If the seller is trying to shift vehicles that have been previously repaired, you don’t necessarily know what you are getting. This is your money and there are also potential safety concerns. A second opinion can help you ensure that a vehicle is safe and worth the investment.

  • 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!!
