Why Choose Diminished Value Auto Appraisers?
Government Certified Appraiser
When Hiring an Auto Appraiser, make sure they are certified by a U.S. Government Entity. Otherwise, the appraisal may not be considered credible. We are government certified and licensed auto appraisers. #V34-075
Credible Automotive Experience
Your DVAA appraiser will have a minimum of 10 years of automotive dealership experience evaluating the overall value of vehicles. Be aware, many online DV appraisal companies are run by ex-body shop repair estimators or ex-insurance reps with no previous experience evaluating the overall value of a vehicle.
Some appraisal companies inflate their valuations in an effort to entice you to use them because they have the largest value. Largest doesn’t mean you’ll settle for more, normally it’s the opposite. Most insurance companies have figured out who provides credible appraisals that follow known appraisal standards, and who provide inflated values that are picked out of the air.
Many Diminished Value sites claim to be USPAP complient, but most don’t even follow the basics. U.S.P.A.P. stands for the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. This is the most widely recognized Appraisal standards and is what makes our appraisals credible.
BRICK AND MORTAR LOCATION
DVAA has a real long term physical location. Not a UPS office, Post Office, Residence or Vacant lot that many fly by night online apprasail companies rely on. Many online Diminished Value Companies are actually located at a UPS Store, Vacant Lot or Closed Car Wash.
