Atlanta's leading car appraisal company adopts new pricing for the new year

Diminished Value of Georgia, the leading automobile appraisal company in the Southeast, is modifying its pricing structure on its valuation services. The company provides appraisals for all types of vehicles, including specialty and antique cars. It is the only auto appraisal business in Georgia that offers appraisals for a flat rate, with no hidden fees or additional costs.

“Beginning February 1st, our pricing will be updated, but will remain as a flat fee," said owner Tony Rached. “By modifying and simplifying our pricing structure, we can continue to offer competitive rates and unrivaled customer service.”

Diminished Value of Georgia offers two categories of appraisal services: desk appraisals and field appraisals. Desk appraisals are created using data provided by the client and are normally offered on smaller insurance claims or less expensive vehicles. Anyone in the United States can order a desk appraisal by filling out a form on the company’s website. For a flat fee, a desk appraisal includes the following:

  •     Customized insurance demand/cover letter
  •     Supporting legal documents
  •     USPAP compliant valuation report
  •     Vehicle history report
  •     IRS form 8283 (for donated vehicles)

Field appraisals require an on-site visit from one of the company’s professional licensed appraisers and includes:

  •     Multi-point vehicle inspection
  •     Repair quality checkup
  •     Customized insurance demand/cover letter
  •     Supporting legal documents
  •     USPAP compliant valuation report
  •     Vehicle history report
  •     IRS form 8283 (for donated vehicles)
  •     Money back guarantee

In addition to the above, Diminished Value of Georgia will negotiate a settlement on behalf of the client on all first-party appraisal clause disputes at no extra cost.

It is important to note that if the insurance company requires a physical inspection of the vehicle, then a field appraisal will be needed. Also, if the vehicle has significant repair quality issues, a field appraisal may be needed.

DVGA's new pricing structure is as follows:

  • Desk Review $50
  • Desk Appraisal $150
  • Field Appraisals $275
  • Field Appraisals (Premium vehicles) $375

This pricing structure applies to all appraisal types offered. Clients residing outside the reach of a field office might accrue a small mileage surcharge.

Diminished Value of Georgia currently serves the entire state of Georgia, with field offices in Savannah, Albany, Augusta, and Columbus. Its headquarters are located in metro Atlanta. The company currently has 25 inspectors on staff and performs the following types of services:

  •     Diminished Value car appraisals
