As you can see, auto appraisers are experts on cars, while auto adjusters are experts with insurance policies and the cost of repairs. Some insurance companies have their own appraisers on staff, but because they work for the insurance company, they don’t usually have your best interests in mind.
If you've recently been in a car accident and believe the insurance compensation is less than your vehicle's true value, you're entitled to seek an assessment from an independent appraiser. Such professionals, like the team at Auto Appraisal Network® - Sacramento, operate separately from insurance companies, ensuring an unbiased evaluation. Our expert appraisers provide accurate and fair evaluations, crucial for classic or custom cars that don't fit standard classifications. Relying solely on KBB or NADA databases, as insurance adjusters often do, doesn't capture the unique value of such vehicles. Many clients, after engaging Auto Appraisal Network® - Sacramento for their appraisal needs, have seen significantly higher settlements from their insurance company.
Insurance is meant to protect you when accidents occur, and, for the most part, it does. Knowing what your rights are and understanding your policy can aid in making sure you get paid the amount you are actually owed, and not just the minimum they try to get away with. A certified auto appraiser from Auto Appraisal Network will assess your vehicle for its diminished value, or if it was declared a total loss, and provide you with a certified appraisal report that contains full color photos, notates the customizations and has current comparable data to prove what your car is really worth to help you get a fair amount for your vehicle after an accident.

If we think the insurance valuation is accurate, we’ll tell you right away, free of charge.
