Car Insurance Total Loss Values
Vehicle Valuations can raise disputes between owners and various third parties. Particulary when an Insurance Company or Third Party has written the vehicle off. When carrying out a car valuation for insurance purposes we believe it is important to value the vehicle right first time.
Normally, the principle of indemnity applies in these cases. Indemnity means the cost of replacing the vehicle with one of a similar year, model and condition. Its your right to receive the actual replacement cost of his vehicle and not the price which you would have received from a private sale or from the motor trade.
if you belive your own car’s pre-accident value to be worth more than the average, or you feel the market values havent been applied correctly, initially we would recommended that you provide documentary evidence, such as repair and servicing bills, details of accessories fitted etc to substantiate you claim. However If a dispute remains, another opinion of the value may be sought by appointing another suitably qualified Engineer, ultimately the case might have to be referred to arbitration.
We aim to assist resolve such issues by either undertaking a thorough inspection of the vehicle or considering documentation if the vehicle isn’t available (e.g. stolen, destroyed, etc). We can then provide an independent assessment based on make, model and a variety of other factors.
