Stated Value is coverage that reflects an amount that is “stated” at the onset of the policy. You tell your insurer what your car is worth (with proper documentation) and it is insured for that amount. … * Any deductible and/or salvage value if vehicle is retained by you will be subtracted from the total amount paid.

Do you have any questions or comments about our services?
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.
I've Know RJ for years through my being he and his father's industry/business consultant (Auto Damage Experts, Inc. (ADE) and have found RJ to be a person of integrity and honor... and he can be a pit-bull when helping his customers protecting their rights.

Wishing him the best in his new endeavor!

Wreck Check Atlanta was recommended to me, and I'm so happy that he was! After my fairly new vehicle was in an accident, my insurance company sent me a check for about $400 in diminished value, which was way off! Because of Mr. Sweeney's experience and outstanding work, I received a new check from my insurance company for over $6000! He will make sure you don't get shortchanged by your insurance company. I never take the time to write reviews, but he is outstanding and I cannot recommend him enough! He is also an absolute pleasure to work with, which is icing on the cake!

RJ with WreckCheck helped me get more than four times what my insurance initially offered for diminished value on my less-than-a-year-old Mini--not to mention, more than $1K over what the insurance company's appraiser initially quoted during the right to appraisal process. RJ provided clear and easy to follow advice throughout the process, consistently providing prompt communication and support. While I hope to not need his services for a while
:), I know I will definitely use him again if I need to! Thank you, RJ!

If you ever have an accident, don't fool around shopping for someone to evaluate the Diminished Value of your automobile.... go straight to R J Sweeney! This is man knows his business!!!! He knows what he's doing, he's an absolute professional, he knows the game the insurance companies play! He's fair, he's accurate and he's on YOUR side! He helped me when I was in an accident a year ago. My car was 6 months old!!!! The insurance company sent me a check for $1,000 (which I rejected!) and that I found utterly insulting! I had $10,400 worth of damage to my $40,000 car! So RJ went to bat for me and I received a check for diminished value for $6,500! Having RJ Sweeney on your side is a win/win situation! I recommend him to everyone!!

RJ is very methodical and calculated in his process of winning the most fair amount of diminished value for your car! He assures you and gives you options at every step of the way. The small investment you make upfront with RJ's fee is well worth it in the end. I was awarded $2,000+ for the lost value of my car! Thank you for your patience RJ! Oh yea! Folks, the process could turn into 2 months. Just stay with it and learn from what RJ tells you. Don't let YOUR insurance or THEIR insurance give you the runaround. BE FIRM!

Like another reviewer said, I took a chance and it was well worth it!! Mr. Sweeney is extremely professional, calm, and patient. He did not avoid my calls, answered ALL of my questions and put my mind at ease. I never had to call for a status update, he was always one step ahead. Mr. Sweeney is the professional you need when dealing with these crooked insurance companies that try to get over on their customers. If I was ever in this situation again (hopefully never again) I have Mr. Sweeney saved as my go to expert. Thank you so much for your help!!

Mr. Sweeney was very responsive and everything he outlined in his initial e-mail was exactly how everything worked out. Your insurance company, or the third party’s insurance company, is definitely low balling you. The quality diminished value report provided by Mr. Sweeney helps level the playing field and he will assist you with the negotiation process as well. You have someone on your side when you use his services. The entire process took less than 30 days to agree to an amount I felt was acceptable. I would not hesitate to use, or recommend, his services again.

RJ was able to increase my offer from $1660 to $7000. I would highly recommend using him.
Jake Sttn March 24, 2019
RJ was very informative and prompt through the whole process. He always answered my questions and concerns quickly and was able to get me a settlement for diminished value 10x more than what the insurance company originally offered me. He does great work and will definitely be recommended to my friends and family.
JT Nguyen April 1, 2019
I really don't know where to start . Mr Sweeney is so professional and knowledgeable of his job . My son had an accident December 2017 . The insurance company just kept giving me the run around . I called Mr Sweeney which explaining my issue . He didn't hesitate at all to help me . Mr Sweeney went step by step with me and explained what needed to be done . He actually negotiated with my insurance company Progressive on my behalf and got my diminish value . I will always and forever promote his business to everyone I know . Mr Sweeney I just want to thank you again for all your hard work you did for me . You are truly a blessing . I will always keep in touch just to say hello .

RJ is the best! He is very knowledgeable and ready to help. He help me with my insurance when my Lexus GX460 Dimished value was messed up by travellers. I got 80% more of the amount travellers insurance was offering me. I recommend him 100% . He his reliable and consistent with everything he tells you.
Patience Olomu April 19, 2019
RJ is very sincere, experienced and awesome in his profession. I knows every angle of this profession. He helped me end up getting 3 times more than insurance offered me the diminished value of my car. He is very responsive. He was even available on Weekend. It was really a right decision for me to hire him. I recommend him if any one need a diminish value appraiser. He keeps his world.
Rubel Khan May 19, 2019
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!!
Paras Raichura May 19, 2019
There are many DV firms to choose from. It's hard to tell them apart but RJ sets himself apart with professionalism, knowledge, communication and working expeditiously to ensure that our claim was settled equitably. He explained the process upfront and what I saw was consistent with his explanation. There were no surprises or gotchas.
S. Michelle Foye May 19, 2019
After being screwed over by another person that just took my money, he made me feel comfortable to trust him. and he was fast and got me what I deserved.
Joseph Hulsey May 19, 2019
Fantastic work from Rj!
Very professional and always available to answer any questions!
Negotiated on behalf of me and I am extremely happy with the final settlement!
Thank you Rj
Masrur Ahmed May 30, 2019
RJ guided me each step. He was spot on each step. Highly recommend. Would never use anyone else.
Robert Young June 1, 2019
RJ's services were money well spent!! I was offered a very low diminished value offer by the insurance company for the person who rear ended my car. Never having been through this situation I knew I needed help in order to get what was fair for the lowered value of my car after being in an accident. RJ laid out the steps and provided all the needed evidence/research for my claim. He was extremely responsive when I had questions as I went back and forth with the insurance company. If this situation presented again, I would use RJ in a heartbeat and would recommend him to friends and family who might find themselves in a similar situation.
Andrea Butler June 5, 2019
RJ has been awesome helping me get the right price for my total loss vehicle. I got 10 times more value compared to what I paid him. Thank you RJ!
Sreekanth Suraneni June 12, 2019
RJ was great helped me through the process. I know i honestly would not have been able to handle my diminution in value claim without his expertise! Thanks wreck check!
Mark Davis June 19, 2019
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. I ended paying 275 to him plus an additional 150 to the umpire. Well worth it because i got my money back and then some. I'd recommend him again for any diminish value appraiser. He knows his stuff and provides long-winded thorough detail qualities reports to get you the money u deserve, especially when these insurance companies try to low ball you

I contacted Wreck Check Atlanta when I reached a dead end in my attempt to get my insurance company to pay me fair market value for my Audi which was totaled in an accident. The adjuster was very rude and did not even consider my research, which showed that I could not replace my car with a similar model anywhere near the advertised prices, within a 500 mile radius. He basically said take it or leave it. He even decided that he would cut off my rental car payment now since he had determined what he would pay me for my car.
Frustrated and on the verge of panic I did a Google search of automobile appraisers and found Wreck Check Atlanta. I immediately called and talked with RJ. After telling him my predicament, he told me that they were indeed under valuing my car. He told me how he could help me and his services would cost me $300.00. I thought about it and was wondering if it was worth it to pay him this amount in advance. Could he really help me? I reluctantly sent him the $300.00.
I contacted the adjuster and told him that i was turning my case over to Wreck Check. I could tell that the adjusters tone was different after I told him this. He tried to convince me that I was wasting my time and that his offer would not change.
Well wouldn't you know it, things changed after a few days when RJ got on the case. I don't know what he said or did to get that adjuster to budge but he eventually got me a settlement $4000,00 higher than what was offered. WOW! To say that I was initially worried about the $300.00 dollar fee is obvious, but believe me... it was worth it. I even offered him a bonus but he refused to take it. Now that is integrity,
If you are being bullied by your insurance company, take my advice, don't think twice. call Wreck Check for a bigger check.
James Maddox October 5, 2020
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.
Hunter Owens October 5, 2020
This was my first time working with a diminished value appraiser and RJ Sweeney made it an amazing experience. He helped me get 10 times the amount of the original offer from the insurance company on one claim and 6 times the original offer on another claim. He provided all the necessary documents and coached me through the entire process. He was available by phone for any follow up questions. I definitely recommend his services as I called and spoke with at least 7 other companies before choosing him and I'm confident I made the best decision.
DaMon Mayers October 5, 2020
44 page appraisal report. Multiple certifications/awards. My insurance company didn't want to do DV claim. Mr. Sweeney directed me on how to get it done. Ended up going third party, State Farm went from 2k to 10k in diminished value thanks to his report. His fee definitely paid off more than I expected.
Eli Friedemann October 5, 2020
I would highly recommend this service to anyone that has the misfortune of wrecking a vehicle, whether it's repaired or totaled. RJ responded right away to my inquiry and wasted no time getting started. He reviewed my situation, wrote a detailed report of what he thought the value of the vehicle was and guided me through every step of the process of communicating with the insurance company. He then worked with their appraiser to ensure that I received a fair settlement for my totaled car. In the end, I was extremely satisfied and glad I decided to use his service. Again, I highly recommend him for any diminished value claim.
Lashanda Brown October 6, 2020
If you are filing a diminished value claim with your insurance company, you need to give RJ a call at Wreck Check Atlanta, before you ever even talk with your insurance. He'll discuss the process and give you an idea of what kind of settlement you can expect. He does a very thorough appraisal of the diminished value, generates a report and coaches you through step by step. My insurance tried to low ball me before I contacted RJ, offered 2800$. Once RJ was involved he handled it all and I ended up with a 34,000$ settlement! If you are looking at a diminished value claim, do yourself a favor and call RJ at Wreck Check Atlanta!
Terry N. October 6, 2020
Helped us through the process. Very responsive. We were able to get more than we originally though. Thanks, RJ!
Dani Senne October 6, 2020
RJ Sweeney is very quick, effective, and efficient. He got me more money out of my car’s value after my insurance company low-balled me. Use him!!!
Jessica Via October 6, 2020
Very responsive and professional. Helped me through the process step by step. I know that without their help I would not have gotten any money from the insurance company, literally pennies on the dollar without Wreck Check!
