Valuation reports for a vehicles repaired after accident.

When an automobile is damaged in an accident, the resale value will drop even after the damage has been repaired.

This reduction in resale value is referred to as Diminished Value and is a legally covered loss under an automobile insurance policy.

Some Insurance companies rely on an erroneous formula, known as 17C, which underestimates the true impact of the loss.

By law, carriers must conduct a reasonable investigation of your claim which includes a fair review of evidence you submit to them. An appraisal report is what you need to properly document your loss.

Diminished Value of Georgia specializes in preparing a fair and accurate car appraisal after an accident to help you obtain proper compensation for your loss.


Valuation reports for vehicles declared a total loss.

When your vehicle is declared a total loss, the insurer will make compensation based on its own valuation report prepared by a third party company.

Usually the insurer’s report underestimates the vehicle’s value. You have the right to present a report prepared on your own behalf that disputes the valuation.

We offer two types of appraisals for total loss valuations – desk review or full field inspections – depending on which aspect of insurer’s report you're disputing.

Pre-purchase inspections

Purchasing a pre-owned car can be a substantial investment so it is crucial to obtain as much information as possible before buying. Vehicle history reports are valuable but often give an incomplete picture. We offer used car pre-purchase inspections and appraisals that can either detect problems you should avoid or give you peace of mind in your purchase. We offer three pre-purchase inspection options to help you determine what a potential purchase is worth, whether its condition is as advertised, and even whether the vehicle is structurally sound.

Loss of use

If an accident deprives you of the right to drive your own vehicle for some amount of time, a loss of use calculator tells how much money it would cost you to drive a duplicate during that period. The costs of owning and operating a vehicle varies based on a number of factors including its actual cash value, maintenance costs, insurance premiums, and any deluxe features. Loss of use can be a component of a first-party or third-party insurance claim and we can help you determine the value of your loss of use.
