Diminished Value Referrals & Autobody Shops and Auto Retailers

Diminished Value Information for Autobody Shops and Auto Retailers

Often body shops do a wonderful job refurbishing damaged cars. The damaged vehicle is brought back to the best condition economically possibly. But we all know nothing is perfect and nothing is exactly the way it was before. No way that metal is the same after a 4-hour pull or the use of some aftermarket parts.

More often than ever before your clients are going to take a hit on the value of their vehicle even though it was wonderfully repaired. Simply put, the market generally doesn’t value repaired/refurbished cars from an accident as it does non-accident vehicles.
