What is the difference between an adjuster, an estimator and an appraiser?
This is a commonly confusing topic that Justin constantly has to clarify for people inside and outside of the insurance industry.
You would think it would be fairly simple to distinguish the difference but the insurance industry blurs the lines on this topic and fails to train their employees on the very important difference between these three positions.
Justin is setting the record straight today in an article he previously published on LinkedIn that we thought was worthy of posting here again on our site.
Randy & Sue have a 2008 Lexus GS 350 that had $8500 in damages and was close to being totaled. They had no idea that they were owed money on TOP of the damages the other driver caused!
Thankfully, they knew an awesome body shop that they had used for years and multiple auto repairs and that awesome body shop knew how we helped on Diminished Value claims.
After getting our info, they signed up for a free claim consultation and got our help with an appraisal and our expert guidance through the process.
Randy & Sue fought for their diminished value loss and ended up settling for $2500!
Dear Ron (Shop owner),
First of all, thank you so much for the years of support and your extraordinary magic with our vehicle mishaps! You and your staff are “Awesome”!
When Sue picked up her GS 350 from the rear-end encounter, the quality work was superb, as always! Not to mention, you are a pleasure to do business with from every perspective, complimented by our insurance company as well.
We also would like to extend our sincere appreciation for introducing us to Justin Petty, an amazing Diminished Value expert who is very supportive.
With Justin’s guidance, we were able to obtain an equitable DV settlement from a very difficult insurance company! Another example of your pursuit of perfection and genuine concern for your customers’ welfare. We would have never known!!!
God Bless you and yours! – Randy & Sue
