Mazda Diminished Value Appraisal in Richmond, Virginia

Regarding our diminished value appraisal of a 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport Automatic Convertible with 1,747 miles that was involved in a Front End Collision that caused $1,640.77 in damage. The vehicle was not disabled/towed and had no structural damage and no air bag deployment.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.

Porsche Macan Diminished Value Claim in Redmond, Washington

Regarding our diminished value appraisal of a 2016 Porsche Macan with 17,289 miles that was involved in a Front End Collision that caused $16,759.37 in damage. The car was disabled/towed and had no structural damage or air bag deployment.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 DON’T USE FORMULAS, ALGORITHMS, AD COMPARISONS OR OTHER SHORT CUTS
SIX DEALER QUOTES IN EVERY APPRAISAL

We learned from these examples from sales managers at Porsche dealerships in Washington, Oregon and surrounding states- Porsche dealers would have to wholesale the car and would not resell it on the lot. Also, normally buyers when spending this kind of money on a vehicle would like to see a clean Carfax and will expect a “deal”  and also at one dealership if the car has 16k worth of damage  you are looking at a huge loss of value – at least 25%.

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.

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 Porsche dealers in Washington and surrounding states in order 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.

Description of damage: Disabling collision damages to the Front not including damage to structural components and no air bag deployment. Repair cost $16,759.37. LKQ (used) and/or aftermarket parts were not utilized in the repair/not factored in to the diminished value.

The average of six (6) deductions was 22.92%. This is the percentage of Diminished Value to be taken from the FMV at the time of loss.
