Florida Total Loss Appraisal
Expert Auto Appraisals specializes in the appraisal of automobiles of all genres. Total Loss appraisals are an option allowed for in most insurance claims where a vehicle is determined to be a total loss and the value of the loss is not agreed on. This option, often referred to as the Appraisal Clause, allows both sides to hire an appraiser to appraise the loss vehicle, and the two appraisers will negotiate to settle the claim. This process is most commonly needed when the loss vehicle is unique, rare, or not average in some aspect, and the insurance company doesn’t have the tool set or the market experience to properly value the vehicle. This situation comes up often and the investment of hiring an appraiser to assist with the claim pays off very well. Our coverage areas are all of Florida including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Stuart, Melbourne, Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando, Gainesville, Tampa, Sarasota, Clearwater, Fort Myers, Naples, Okeechobee, Pensacola, Tallahassee.
Here's just a few of some of the total loss appraisals that I have performed and have negotiated the settlement of for my clients.
