Don’t fall prey to cheap pre-programmed internet total loss appraisal services offering cheap reports that can be generated instantly. A fully customized documented report from a professional appraiser who explains specific details in regards to your car and analyzes the marketplace will create a rock solid foundation to prove your car is valued correctly. I constantly hear people tell me that the comparable cars used in their total loss appraisal reports are on vehicles that are less than the same quality as theirs. They have branded title’s, substandard body work or even worse… have structural damage; this in turn brings down the values of their total loss appraisal. Call the auto mediator today and find out what the real valuation is.

1. The insurance company will usually provide the mandatory market valuation of your vehicle. This report is most likely provided by J.D. Power, CCC, Audatex or another company and will usually have a large amount of data and can at times have inaccuracies such as salvage, prior accident damage, frame damage or other important pertinent features left out.

2. If unhappy with this evaluation, usually the insurance company will ask you to get an independent appraisal report. This is the most important decision you will make. You can always do some of your own homework and look at comparable vehicle to yours in the market place just as if you were to buy the same car you already have. Pay attention to details as most companies do not, this can devalue your car immensely. Contact an auto appraiser that it fully competent and has a CV that will stand on its own…you might need it.

3. Send the auto appraiser’s report to the insurance company and either:

  1. Get paid.
  2. Their appraiser contact’s your auto appraiser, they both agree on a fair valuation.
  3. Both appraiser’s choose umpire candidates that are mutually agreed upon and both the insurance company and insured pay equal parts for the umpire services fee (in some cases when an umpire cannot be agreed upon by both appraisers they might have to petition the court). All this depends on how the insurance policy is written of course.
  4. A decision is made based on the two appraisal reports and the simple evidence provided.

As you can see above, when push comes to shove and a body of evidence is needed, you must have all your ducks in a row and provide a clear, simple argument. A true auto appraiser in the current automotive auction arena with detailed knowledge of vehicle specifics and proprietary research data attains their own data and provides a clear concise body of information that is indisputable is something that will definitely help you in achieving success that can make a difference.
