Success Stories

  • Dear Monica and Terry,

    What an AWESOME job Autoloss accomplished for me. I can’t Thank you enough. After reading the many reviews regarding Diminished Value. I was extremely hesitant to file with my insurance company. Our fully loaded 2014 Dodge Ram Longhorn Laramie Premium Edition was only 1 week old when an uninsured motorist rear ended me. Although the damage was “minor”(Under $1500 in repairs) in the eyes of the insurance company, I knew we just took a huge hit on the value of our vehicle. Before submitting my Diminished Value claim to the insurance company, I contacted Autoloss. Within 24 hours the report was complete and ready for our review, approved and sent to the insurance company. The same morning, I received a call from State Farm looking to settle the claim. Your estimate of $4505.00 for diminished value was great. The insurance company didn’t want to settle over $2600.00, but I wasn’t going to let them take all my value for their benefit. However, to settle the claim quickly without anymore running around, we decided to settle our claim for $3250.00! Even though I know we probably could have pushed for the full amount, in acting in good faith and not wanting to delay, we settled.

    I just wanted to say, without the Autoloss appraisal for diminished value...they would have tried to settle for pennies on the dollar. Knowing that we came prepared with a legitimate appraisal from Autoloss, they were quick to settle and sent the diminished value check the same day.

    I really appreciate all your efforts and negotiation skills you all possess! Great Job! I highly recommend Autoloss to anyone that has been in an accident.

These considerations vary from state-to-state, but to give you an idea, here is a basic rundown in Autoloss's home state of Oregon (ORS 801.527):

  • A vehicle that is declared a Total Loss by an insurer who is obligated to cover the loss. Also, a vehicle that the insurer takes possession of or title to.
  • A vehicle that has sustained damage that is not covered by an insurer and the estimated cost to repair the vehicle is equal to at least 80% of the retail market value prior to the damage. "Retail market value" is defined as the amount shown in publications used by financial institutions (eg. banks, lenders) in this state.
  • A vehicle that is stolen, if it is not recovered within 30 days of theft and the loss is not covered by an insurer. In this situation, you must notify DMV within 60 days of the theft.
