Are you having trouble disputing or filing an insurance claim in the Houston, Texas market? We can help ease the process for you.
Here are a few common types of insurance claims and what services we offer in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas:
Were you involved in an accident in Houston, Texas that was not your fault? Diminished value is market value lost because of a non at-fault accident and is determined after the qualified repairs have been completed. Many insurance companies try to offer you a minimal amount to settle the claim, but the only way you will know if it is a reasonable offer is by contacting us and having one of our certified auto appraisers give you a free assesment of your current offer. Our certified diminished value appraisal will show both pre-accident and post-accident valuations.
Total Loss Appraisal (Third Party)
Were you involved in an accident in the Houston, Texas market and the insurance company deemed your vehicle a total loss? During the claim process, the insurance company will make you an offer in an attempt to settle your claim. If you disagree with the Insurance company's offer or you are having second thoughts about accepting their offer, contact us today and one of our certified auto appraisers can give you a free assesment of your current offer. You do have the right to hire an independent certified auto appraiser to dispute the value of your vehicle. We will go to the vehicle location, conduct a physical inspection as well as complete a certified total loss appraisal on your vehicle. In most cases Total Loss Claims require our certified auto appraiser to negotiate your claim with the insurance company's independent appraiser. Our appraisal fee includes this at no addition charge!
Fire and Theft Claims
If your vehicle was involved in a fire or theft loss, the insurance company has no real way of determining the full details and options on your vehicle because it was either non-recovered or severely damaged. If you had aftermarket parts installed or upgrades done to the vehicle, the insurance company may not include this in your offer. Always keep record and receipts of any parts you add to your vehicle. You will need to provide proof when disputing a claim. For further details, please contact one of our Houston, Texas certified auto appraisers.
