Appraisal Services

A prompt and accurate appraisal can be your best friend

Why is a professional appraisal so important?

A prompt and accurate appraisal can be your best friend when documenting a claim with potential for exaggerated, or fraudulent damages. It is important to note that a body shop estimate rarely uncovers fraudulent activity. They simply do not look for it.

Direct Repair Program (DRP)

Carriers that use a DRP program might save money in adjusting expenses but often pay more in exposures because, without supervision, body shops can write damages that are unrelated to the loss. We can provide re-inspect and estimate audit services to help hold body shops accountable.

Our network of experienced appraisers are well qualified and will help you do document your claim. We won’t let you down.
