Why Do I Need an Expert DV Appraiser?
Today’s technology allows most buyers the ability to research a vehicle’s history with such companies as Car-fax and Auto-check. Any damage a vehicle has ever sustained must be included in its history, no matter the quality of the repair job. This information inevitably stigmatizes a vehicle’s resale value. Most dealers today make their clients sign-off on the auto history report to insure that they are not penalized in the future for selling blemished vehicles.
An expert DV appraiser has the tools and knowledge to make a thorough DV report that you can use to prove the value of your car to a potential buyer, insurance company, or other pertinent party. Trying to save money by calculating DV yourself or trusting a cheap online appraiser can lead to an inaccurate report and financial disappointment.
We can take you through our step by step process to help you understand the diminished value of your vehicle.
Repair-Related Diminished Value
The shop performing the inferior work must make good on the improper repairs within a pre-determined time frame. Getting an inspection post-repair is a good way to identify improper work, such as; misaligned panels, orange peel, sandpaper marks, paint swirls, mismatched paint work, over-spray and many other indications of substandard work. Having a trained professional automotive appraiser is essential in getting the quality you deserve in a post-collision repair.
For vehicles involved in accidents, hiring a qualified appraiser is your best bet. Someone who understands the type of car, the points of sale, the major sales outlets, the specific tools used in assessing the damage, the extent of damage and its, potential to negatively impact sale price can help you receive diminished value.
