Has your insurance company deemed that your vehicle is a economic total loss? You can use this tool to help you decide to accept that determination or dispute it. It will help you to establish the value of your vehicle before the damage occurred.
It is important to be prepared and reasonable when working with your claims specialist.
When calculating the value of your
vehicle, for total loss purposes, be sure to include all options that
your vehicle is equipped with, the correct mileage and the pre-accident
condition of your vehicle. Empowered with this information, you can
negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement with your insurance company.
Things to keep in mind:
Towing, storage and rental
expense do not affect the value or your vehicle.
Don't let the tax of title fees hide the true value of your vehicle.
When settling your total loss claim be sure to negotiate the value of the vehicle before settling on taxes and title or document fees as these are automatically owed to you.
