When you wreck your vehicle, it is no longer worth what it was prior to the accident, even after all repairs are completed.
Are you prepared to deal with the insurance company to get what you are owed? It is not an easy task to deal with the insurance company under normal circumstances, let alone after an accident.
Let Eric Meyer Automotive Expert work with you and get what you are owed from your insurance company. Diminished value estimate is the difference between the value of your vehicle pre-accident and the value after all repairs have been completed.

Eric Meyer Automotive Expert inspects vehicles than have sustained damage and have already been repaired. With no doubt the most valuable of all services that we preform is the port repair inspection. This inspection ensures the repairs have been done and done correctly.
