accurate repair estimates
This video demonstrates the proper techniques to ensure accurate appraisals and goes on to discuss other elements of the repair process such as R&I (removal and installation).
The costs associated with poorly written appraisals are immeasurable. In a dealership situation we have seen both sides. When the damage is under-appraised the dealership stands to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars to which they are entitled. When the cars are over-appraised the insurer forces an audit and re-inspections that drag the claim out for many months.
Our philosophy is to accurately appraise damage right away and continue to be a reliable partner for the dealership, the insurance company, the appraisal and adjusting companies all the way through until the last vehicle is repaired… but it starts with the right appraisals.
