Diminished Value Appraisal in Pearl River, New York

A diminished value appraisal of a BMW 435xi AWD Automatic Coupe with 53,510 miles that was involved in a Left Side Collision that caused $9,408.19 in damage. The vehicle was disabled/towed, had structural damage and no air bag deployment. The claimant hired an independent auto appraiser and 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 dealerships in New York – One dealer would take it as a trade but deduct 25% + due to the frame being damaged in the accident. Also, frame damaged cars more than likely wont be resold retail on the lot if the damage is bad enough it will be sold at auction. And, there will be a loss the actual amount of loss will be determined by many factors. It can be as high as half if it is bad enough.

The opinions of six unbiased professionals form the basis for the most comprehensive Auto Diminished Value Appraisal available. We obtain six of them to validate the diminished value report prepared by The St. Lucie Appraisal Company. This is what the car owner will experience in the real world.

The six dealers providing opinions regarding diminished value were given information specific to this vehicle including year, make, model, mileage, color, options, any other pertinent equipment, date of loss as well as the nature of the repaired damages and the manner in which the vehicle was repaired. Dealer opinions are based on personal knowledge and access to auction results. Dealers were advised that this vehicle was properly repaired.

We contacted several BMW dealers in New York to establish how these repairs and the resultant repair history would impact this vehicle’s Fair Market Value (FMV.) Dealers were provided with an evaluation of the vehicle’s condition both prior and subsequent to repairs.
