Diminished Value in Seattle

Seattle is known for its superior drivers, the rain-soaked roads of the Emerald City almost demand it. However, even the best drivers have found themselves fighting insurance companies over accident claims. If your vehicle has been in an accident, it has lost its resale value by 15% – 50%. This inevitable decrease is known as “Diminished Value.” Many Seattle car dealerships use resources like Carfax to pull accident history when pitching to potential buyers. Only one-third of all Americans will purchase a vehicle that has been in an accident. Despite what insurance companies lead you to believe, auto body repair is not the only compensation you are owed. You could have thousands of dollars left unclaimed that insurance companies are bound by law to pay you. That’s money you could use on your next shopping trip to Pike Place. At Hansen Price, we have over 25 years of experience in the Seattle area. We want to be your breath of fresh air in the Diminished Value industry and put thousands back into your pocket.
