The Pitfalls of Insurance-Selected Repair Shops Alpharetta, GA
Car Accident

If you have just been in a car accident, your insurance company may have directed you to a specific repair shop. While it may seem convenient to have your insurance company handle everything, there are potential problems when car insurance companies choose the company that will repair your car.

You may not be given the time to adequately assess the reputation of the shop, and you may not know the right questions to ask about the work being done, the type of parts being used during the repair or how those choices will affect the overall safety and value of your car in the long run.

A Diminished Value Specialist can help determine if your insurance payout was fair based on the work needed and the work completed.

The Cost of Diminished Value

Insurance companies often have their own interests in mind when selecting repair shops. One of the most significant issues that can arise from using an insurance-selected repair shop is the possibility of subpar repairs. While not all providers engage in this behavior, unfortunately, some insurance companies may choose a repair shop based on cost rather than the quality of their work.

They may even have contractual agreements with certain shops that prioritize cost savings for the insurance company to maximize their profits. This can lead to the use of inferior parts, rushed repairs or even incomplete work. These issues not only affect the performance and safety of your vehicle but can also cause its value to diminish.

After your vehicle has been involved in an accident and repaired, it is important to be aware of its diminished value. This refers to the loss in market value that occurs even when the vehicle is fully repaired. Potential buyers are less likely to purchase a car with an accident history, and the diminished value can significantly affect the resale value of your vehicle.

The Benefits of Enlisting a Diminished Value Specialist

Considering these potential issues, hiring a Diminished Value Specialist becomes essential. A specialist in this field can help ensure that your insurance company has provided a fair diminished value assessment and that the repairs to your vehicle were done properly. By ensuring the damage was accurately assessed, you can know if the repairs were done correctly, and it can help you receive fair compensation for any loss in value.

  • 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!!
