Why should you chose an own independent automotive expert?
If you have an expert sent by the insurance he will always
be friendly but he will never be your friend but always focussed on cost
reduction for their employer. They make use of every possibility to keep your
claim as low as possible like calculating the repair costs with the cheapest
repair shop they can find in the region, or leaving away a few extra works which
are not obviously required for a layman. So be aware of all offers you get from
the insurance, no matter how polite the employee on the phone seems to be, his
job is to reduce your claim to the minimal possible value.
Why do you need a report from a neutral and independent automotive expert?
The report states all relevant data and numeralizes the expected costs which
you need to adress your claims to the insurance. It states wether it’s valuable
to repair or replace the car and which efforts are necessary to bring your car
back on the road safely.
