Diminished Value Claim Across NC, SC, TN, GA, and VA

Receiving what your insurance company owes you and walking away with nothing often comes down to hiring the right diminished value appraisals. Even though your claims process sends out an insurance appraiser, they are not working in your favor.

When the insurance companies conduct a vehicle appraisal, they now hold all the cards. By having only one evaluation performed, they now tell you what you’ll receive, and you have next to no say in the matter, even if it doesn’t come near the amount that it should.

Instead, we offer the same level of care and dedication to your assets to ensure that you get back as much as possible on every claim. Contact us for your most accurate auto values with:

  • Motorcycle Values
  • Classic Car Values
  • Old Car Values
  • Recreational Vehicle Appraisals

  • Resale Value Inspections
  • Pre-Purchase Inspections
  • Charitable Donation Appraisals
  • Commercial Vehicle Value Inspections
  • Total Loss Claims

  • And more diminished value appraisals across the states

Before you contact your insurance claims provider, you must have us provide you with an accurate appraisal. Contact us today for your fast and precise inspections for any vehicles.

How Much Is My Car Worth?


Some vehicle owners may misunderstand what a diminished value represents. Many may confuse what we find with the car’s Kelley Blue Book amount, or an equal way to measure what price it could get sold.

Your vehicle’s diminished value amount reflects how much loss a car has incurred before getting repaired. The reason why is that, if you were to sell it completely restored, you would not receive the same cash amount if it were in perfect condition.

No one would pay more for a vehicle that had gotten restored following an accident or another damaging event, and your appraisal lets you know what amount of value has gotten lost. And whatever value is no longer available to you is what insurance companies should compensate you.

Unfortunately, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests, and they’ll do whatever they can to avoid paying you what you remain owed. When you need the best defense possible against auto insurance corporations, you need our experienced appraisers on your side today.

Expert Court Witness Testimonies

Sometimes, other drivers or their insurance companies may claim that you were the one at fault during an accident, even when you know that you weren’t. However, when it’s your word against theirs, you likely are going to have to go to court to get matters settled.

Unfortunately, when going against insurance companies, they have the best lawyers that money can buy. How can you hope to plead your case without some form of defense?

As expert diminished claims appraisers, we offer our skills and dedication in a court of law to carefully explain your side of the argument, as well as what we found while examining your assets. While we cannot help argue your case, an expert witness testimony often means the difference between the court ruling against you and siding with your defense.

While you may have options in local vehicle appraisals, you won’t find a better quality of service than with our team. When you need to know that your damaged cars get inspected by the best appraisers around, you need CK Appraisals today.

Having Satisfied Clients is Not Unusual for Us, it is the Norm:

I wanted to let you and your staff know how great Chris at CK Appraisals is.  I had a terrible time with the insurance company.  However, all I had to do was call Chris and he was on the phone immediately with them and dealt with the problem.
It took several months, but Chris finally got the insurance company to understand NC law and remit an acceptable amount.
Thanks again for recommending Chris, and be sure to give his name to everybody in the future who needs this type of help.

The insurance company, Geico, offered me $1000 settlement. After Chris gave his expert testimony, the judge awarded me $8900! Thank you, Chris!

Chris: Thanks for your excellent work on this one – Plaintiff’s counsel rejected our initial settlement offer, then read your report, and decided to accept our initial offer after all.

Have a wonderful weekend,


We received the check for $2300 from Penn National which was so much better than the $475 offered originally.  This took a little more time but was very much worth it.  Thank you.

John S and family

Many thanks for this Chris. He came back with an offer of $2000 – which I accepted.
Very much appreciate your support in this.
