Recommended betterment or appearance allowances will be applied in accordance with generally accepted industry standards, and company guidelines.

Overlap time will be identified and eliminated, when possible.

Total Losses

Total Loss Valuations will be provided along with our report and digital photos when a vehicle is determined to be a total loss, including constructive total loss vehicles.


On total losses, the location of the salvage and any applicable towing fees and storage rates will be included in our report. This also applies when a vehicle was determined to be a constructive total loss.


Supplements can be verified by inspection, upon request. Appraisals will be agreed with the owner's choice of repair facility. If the owner has not selected a shop, differences between the shop estimate and original appraisal can be resolved once the vehicle is in a shop.
