Receive a Fair Diminished Value Settlement
There is a gold standard when it comes to automobile diminished value appraisers and it is known as The St. Lucie Appraisal Company from Fort Pierce, Florida. You may ask any insurance adjuster or any of our competitors and you are liable to hear it from them as well. Insurance companies such as State Farm, Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, USAA, Safeco, Progressive, Liberty Mutual and most of the rest have seen our diminished value appraisals in all 50 states. And we have looked at appraisals prepared by just about every independent appraiser – but none of them have ever seen one of ours. Why? Our appraisals don’t get tossed out as demonstrating a “lack of proof” of diminished value. Theirs do and when we are called upon for a second opinion, we get to see many of their sad excuses for appraisals.
What goes without saying is that the insurance adjuster assigned to your case will make a ridiculously low initial settlement offer, regardless of how comprehensive an appraisal you’ve provided. It is when you start to push them, however – when the claim gets escalated to a supervisor or an unfair claim practices complaint is made to an insurance department that things get interesting. That’s when your appraisal gets sent upstairs to their defense attorneys for review. What, exactly are the lawyers looking for?
When an insurance company defense attorney looks over a diminished value appraisal that was prepared in less than ten minutes using a formula or what many appraisers have taken to calling “algorithms,” they see a document that will look as foreign to a magistrate or mediator as Sanskrit. Likewise, diminished value appraisals using automobile auction results, which are as generic a source of information as you can find, will likely be looked upon groundless as in too generic when it comes to absolute proof that your particular vehicle has lost value.
The St. Lucie Appraisal Company provides what defense attorneys fear most – irrefutable evidence of diminished value, based on the unbiased opinions of six managers at new car dealerships – the people who, day in and day out, purchase and take these bad Carfax cars in trades. Recognizing a document that any judge can easily understand, the attorneys are far more likely to advise their adjusters to settle.
Obtaining this detailed information is time consuming, of course, but time means money and we know that it is time well-spent because to be the gold standard in automobile diminished value appraisals, it’s what you’ve got to do. You’ve got to put in the time.
