Anderson Cooper – Body Shops say Insurance Companies are skimping on repairs.

Auto Body shops throughout the nation say that insurance companies skimp on safety in order to pad their pockets. When insurance companies skimp on paying for safety it leaves the consumer in an unsafe vehicle. Anderson Cooper investigates poor repairs done at an “Insurance Company Recommended Body Shop” and the behind the scenes look at the side deals these body shops have with insurance companies, which the consumer usually has no clue about. These side deals force the body shops to do the bare minimum to fix your car, including using aftermarket, used, or reconditioned parts. These items can be a serious safety issue and attorney generals in several states are suing the insurance companies over this issue.

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.
