BMW 328i Turbo Sedan Diminished Value Claim in Greenville, South Carolina

Regarding a 2016 BMW 328- Turbo Sedan with 22,606 miles that was involved in a left-side collision that caused $7,343.25 in damage. The vehicle was disabled/towed and had structural damage. The claimant made a third-party inherent auto diminished value claim for the vehicle’s loss in value. Once a car is repaired after a collision, it is worth less, often much less depending on the severity of the damage. Regardless of how well the repairer did his job, nobody will pay as much for a previously wrecked car as they would for an identical one that was never in an accident. Presenting a diminished value claim and following it through to a satisfactory conclusion is a daunting task for the average person. Obtaining a comprehensive Diminished Value Report is key.

We learned from these examples from sales managers at BMW dealers in South Carolina. Normally frame damage, even with proper repairs, will result in a 30%-50% loss in value. Also that frame damage is a red flag on a Carfax and dealers will have to sell for a lot less and that is why they can’t give you the book value – the cars integrity has been compromised.   And that it will be hard to find a  bank that will finance a vehicle like this and the diminished value may be 25% at minimum; maybe more.

The opinions of unbiased experts form the basis for the most comprehensive Auto Diminished Value Appraisal available. We obtain six of them which absolutely puts the diminished value figure prepared by The St. Lucie Appraisal Company in the ballpark. This is what the car owner will experience in the real world.

We learned from these examples from sales managers at Lexus dealers in Southern California. Typically a Lexus dealer could not sell it unless it was at an auction-huge loss of value-you would lose 30-40%. Also, 30% loss off the book value maybe even more – the accident was severe and the cars integrity is compromised and hard sell and a liability for the dealer. And if you have that type of accident and damage, the buyers won’t buy it. The more high line of the car the more of a loss it will take.

Mercedes-Benz S550 AWD Turbo Coupe Diminished Value Claim in Santa Ana, California

Regarding a 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 AWD 2 Door Turbo Coupe with 17,683 miles that was involved in a rear-end collision that caused $20,811.96 in damage. The vehicle was disabled/towed and had structural damage.The claimant made a third-party inherent auto diminished value claim for the vehicle’s loss in value. Once a car is repaired after a collision, it is worth less, often much less depending on the severity of the damage. Regardless of how well the repairer did his job, nobody will pay as much for a previously wrecked car as they would for an identical one that was never in an accident. Presenting a diminished value claim and following it through to a satisfactory conclusion is a daunting task for the average person. Obtaining a comprehensive Diminished Value Report is key.

We learned from these examples from sales managers at Mercedes-Benz dealers in Southern California. – It is doubtful they would resell this retail and it would end up at auction especially with this amount of damage even if repaired they would not be able to offer you full book possible a loss of 25-% ++ could go much higher. Also, normally customers that are looking for a vehicle like this they will want one with no accident at all so if they were to purchase this they would want a lot of money taken off. And also that Carfax is very powerful and anytime a consumer will see the bad Carfax it will make a more difficult sale and they will want a ton of money off and in return you will take a big hit on your trade-in, around 30-40% on average.
