Why Use Us?

Why use us for your Diminished Value Appraisal?

Our appraiser is not just a title but a guarantee of quality. 📜 Licensed as a Louisiana Insurance Adjuster and IACP Certified by the Bureau of Certified Auto Appraisers, we adhere to a rigorous set of guidelines.  Unlike many who rely on formulas or ‘experience,’ we take a more hands-on approach.  We order the Carfax, consult local used car sales managers, and factor in nuances that can only be gleaned from a thorough field investigation. Our appraiser follows the guidelines of the Bureau of Certified Auto Appraisers as set forth below:BOCAA guidelines for diminished value appraisers

We pride ourselves on the quality of our reports.  Refined over thirteen years, our methodologies withstand the scrutiny of insurance adjusters from all providers.  We’ve assessed the work of our competitors and can confidently say that we offer unparalleled quality.  Many websites offer automated diminished value appraisals that often fail to meet insurance adjuster standards. ❌ They neglect local market conditions and legal parameters, which are critical for an accurate valuation. 📈 Our process involves reviewing your body shop’s repair invoice and considering essential factors like vehicle history reports, the nature of the impact, labor hours, frame damage, and prior unrelated damage.
